When it comes to TikTok, it can be hard to keep up with what is trending and how others are creating and editing their videos. There are some key TikTok trends that we think are worth paying attention to, and incorporating into your videos. So, once you’re comfortable creating TikTok videos, here’s six trends that are worth jumping on…
These are one of the TikTok trends you just can’t ignore, dance challenges are all over the platform! Not only are they really fun to take part in, but they’re a great way to quickly gain an audience as the hashtags for each of them are very active.
Follow a few of the most popular dancers on the platform so you can keep up to date with the latest challenges and take part in them yourself.
You may think that lipsyncing is just for songs, but comedy lipsyncs are also really popular on the platform. If you’re a pop culture lover, why not give some of the Gemma Collins or Kardashian clips a go for yourself? These lipsyncs are really fun to do and there’s no pressure for the content to look perfect.
Why not go all out with props and characterisation? The most popular videos do this, and it’s a great way to keep people’s attention for the duration of your clip.
A great way to be creative with your content on TikTok is to learn how to do some of the most impressive transitions. Whether you’re filming a lipsync, styling video or makeup tutorial, the transitions are what will make your content a compelling view that people just can’t resist watching again and again.
Follow the creators who are producing videos similar to yours and look at the transitions they are doing. Then give them a go for yourself! The key is editing your clips really precisely and making sure you stay in the same position while filming so the transitions look seamless. This is one of the TikTok trends we don’t see losing popularity for a long time!
When it comes to TikTok creators, some of the most popular are very niche with the content that they share. Whether you’re a painter, baker, builder or seamstress, there’s an audience for everything and showing the process of your creations can make for some great videos!
If you’re a blogger or Instagrammer, why not show people your photo editing process or the behind-the-scenes of your photoshoots and the final images? Tutorials are an easy way to give people an insight into what you do and are something you can repeatedly film and share.
Most of us love having an insight into other people’s lives, and sharing some aspects of your daily life can be an easy way to share content that has the potential to be seen by a large audience. This could be your Sunday morning routine, some books that are on your ‘to-be-read’ list or what you’ve recently bought from Amazon.
Use general popular hashtags for your content to be seen by a wider audience, especially #houseofTikTok as this is for content that is filmed at home.
A big part of TikTok is pop culture, and audio clips from iconic reality TV moments will quickly gain popularity overnight. Jumping on pop culture trends is an easy way to create content for TikTok that will likely be seen by lots of people. Our most recent favourite trend was the Tiger King themed content that was shared across the platform.
If there’s a pop culture moment you want to create content around, but you can’t find the relevant audio on the platform, why not upload it yourself? If it gains traction this can be a great way to be a part of TikTok trends and also boost your followers.
