Over 10,000,000 TikTok views! FUNNY Thing Happened! haha

Last Update: June 23, 2020

During the last few weeks every single time I've been in the city center, someone has commented under my TikTok videos,

"Were you in the marketplace place at 19.15?"


"Were you in front of the mall today at 18?"


"I think I saw you in x place tonight... Were you there?"

It means that they have seen my TikTok videos and later recognized me in the city.

It's so funny. 😂

(Below is a picture from the city where I've been = Oulu.)

Every Finnish TikTok User Has Seen My Videos (I guess so!)

One thing about TikTok is that it shows your videos first to the people who are nearby to the country that your SIM card was registered.

In my case, I use a Finnish SIM card so my videos are shown first to the Finnish people.

The population of Finland is aroud 5,5 million in total and my videos have received well over 10,000,000 views.

It means that probably every Finnish person that uses TikTok has most likely seen some of my videos there!

Then once people initially engage with the video (like, comment, share, etc.) TikTok shows videos also to Swedish, Norwegian, American, Filipino people and all over the world.

The fact that my videos are shown first to the Finnish people means that some people seem to recognize whenever I visit the city centre here in Oulu.

10,000 TikTok Followers Reached Today

Today I reached 10,000 TT followers.

I remember that it took me 2-3 years to reach the same on YouTube. Now it took only around 2 months on TikTok.

Not a huge milestone but I like to celebrate even the little wins.

And I encourage you to celebrate your little wins too! ;)

Should You Use TikTok Too?

Maybe. Maybe not.

I'd say that if you are focusing on your blog and making good progress with it, keep on focusing on your blog. Don't get distracted with TikTok.

If you have a YouTube channel and you like making videos, then creating a TikTok channel may be a great idea.

You can get a lot of traffic from TikTok to YouTube and it will boost your engagement on YouTube which leads to more views and results on YouTube.

TikTok definitely is not for everyone. That being said, anyone can use TikTok to build their businesses if they want so the choice is yours.

A lot of my videos on TikTok are very silly and I've created them for the sake of having fun and engaging with my audience there.

I've got distracted on TikTok sometimes but so far I can say that benefits completely outweigh the drawbacks.

I am having fun with people on TikTok and it also brings tangible benefits to my online business too. So I'll continue using it.

Let's keep on rocking!

Below is a silly screenshot from today's celebration video of reaching 10,000 followers. 😂😂

Thanks for this tip - I have heard about Tik Tok recently from various online marketers - your blog confirms what I have been hearing and I will check it out. I have watched and liked your Tik Tok Youtube video and it is very informative, you give great tips.

Thank you

Staggering numbers! I would not call it a small milestone. If this is a small milestone what is your goal?
Does it lead to more conversion for you?
At least you are on the verge of fame by being recognized in the street. I guess it is not long before we have our own Wealthy Affiliate Superstar in here! Well done!

Thanks Hilde! The quality of TikTok views isn't very good. Yes, some lead to conversions but not many. The quality of views on YouTube for example is 100 times better. But using TikTok has also been a good strategy to get viewers to my YouTube channel.

That is good to know. I have a Tik Tok Account, but I have not yet Prioritized to learn how to use the platform. I am sure it is good for driving traffic to your channel.

😎 tik tok famous and super cute,too...I actually prounounce your name like that Mr. Kiuttu=Mr. Cute, too! Lol have a great day thank you for this it is great. I have used Linked In, Pinterest, Something calles Pod, Alignable, a little trial of YouTube, Twitter (that was hacked)...I tried the Tik Tok Roope, but chickened out. I'm trying to make a video for starting an IV properly to prevent embolisms in honor of a WA member-Yuma City blogger.
Last time I chickened out and posted an ant I accidentally squished who seemed to be signing and dancing to the music. I look up to your paparazzi passion so this time I'm going for it, just need to find some great shoes that should boost my confidence:):):)
I found your post inspiring! As always, Roope-inspiring-poor-old-cam-shy- nurses and he's Cute, too

Thank you so much! I feel It's ok to be a little bit shy but little by little I'm doing better:) i appreciate the encouragement. I love your videos and accent with enthusiasm
RoopeKiuttu Premium
Yes it's completely okay to feel shy. I think everyone feels that sometimes. Little by little progress and always forward :)

Congrats on your success and glad it is working out for you.

To answer your question - multiple all combined and interconnected platforms and methods. I do not have one that is a particular favorite - all that I use have some benefits and all have some drawbacks too.

Currently, I am on all the platforms I intend to be - for now anyway and have no plans on adding any more. Just continuing to build site/blogs, courses, videos, articles and to write more eBooks, books, and training manuals - create more content - and tie as much of it together as makes sense.

Thanks for your update and I look forward to your next post!

Best regards,
