We will explore four quick and easy ways to make money on TikTok. This goes against the common practice, where many people play at to make a living. It is a risky venture, which pays off for the smart players. If you choose TikTok, you only need an hour or two of your schedule to make money. 

You’ve probably read or heard of stories of TikoTokers cashing in on videos they create every day. You might have heard of the word content being used frequently and wondered what it’s all about. How do you make good content? And how can you convert that sizable following into cold hard cash? 

This is what we are going to help you understand in-depth. 

Publish High-Quality Videos

Publishing high-quality videos is an unspoken rule, but high-quality videos are critical for a successful TikTok account. Successful brands master the art of posting engaging and entertaining high-quality videos. If you master this art, too, then you’ll be one step closer to making money on TikTok. 

And it’s not just about posting high-quality content but also the frequency. Update your videos often because people are more likely to engage with an active account than one with a few videos. If possible, learn to plan your TikTok content in advance whenever possible.

Avoid Shortcuts 

Have you ever wondered why an account may have thousands of TikTok followers, but the owner is complaining about how it’s not generating him any revenue? This is despite all the efforts they have made to ensure it starts returning some cash? 

Well, the truth is that these efforts are concentrated in the wrong areas. The owner or person running the account may have bought followers. It is a grave mistake that you shouldn’t be tempted to make this mistake. 

The fake followers will only make your account have a good face value. However, when it comes to followers-post engagement, there’s zero value. 

This is why it’s advisable you grow your following naturally. Post high-quality videos and employ a strong marketing strategy to do this. 

Use Affiliate Marketing As One Of The Monetization Process 

Affiliate marketing is undoubtedly the oldest way of making money on the internet. And in the social media space, it is still one of the best ways to make money. When you become an affiliate marketer, you earn money when someone visits a website by clicking a link on your page and spending money on that website. 

Companies using affiliate marketing tend to pay a percentage of the value of the sale to the marketers. So, if you have a sizable following with good content, this should be at the top of your priority list if you want to make money from TikTok. 

One of the positives of affiliate marketing is that barriers to becoming an affiliate manager are lower compared to those of brand partnership. Plus, the potential income can be significantly high. 

Launch Your E-Commerce Store

So far, you may think the only way to make money on TikTok is by partnering with brands. But it is not the case. If you are a product creator, TikTok makes for a great platform to sell products. As these products reflect you as a brand, it would be a good strategy for you to build a business around them.

If, for example, you are in the eSports streaming service on TikTok, you can print shirts with slogans you usually use while playing. These shirts are posted on your eCommerce page, and you integrate links from your TikTok bio. And it’s not just t-shirts, you can do many things. Merchandise includes coffee mugs, wall art, pens, a play station pad, and much more. 

Sell Digital Products

Expounding on the previous topic, you can use your TikTok account to sell digital products. Specialize in a specific niche and market digital resources your followers can find helpful. 

From eBooks to travel guides, there’s plenty you can offer. If your followers love what you are posting on TikTok, there’s a high chance that they’ll be willing to spend money to get some of the DYI and self-help guides. 

How is this different from what we just explained above? You may not have the funds to develop a website, but there are plenty of sites that can help you sell these products. Amazon, eBay, Alibaba, and many other sites accept eBooks and other self-help guides. Once you post on these sites and people purchase your product, they take a small commission and credit the balance to your account.
