A Cat Video That Has Over 150 Million Views On TikTok
Yesterday I saw a video on TikTok that blew my mind, the video has over 150 million views, I will share the screenshots in a bit. As soon as I saw the video, I thought of all the WA members running cats and dogs websites.
Top 3 Niches That Are Dominating TikTok
I have noticed and I think I mentioned this in my previous TiTok posts. There are three niches that are killing it on TikTok, and they are cats, dogs, and babies. If you are running a website within these niches, And you don't mind sharing your cat, or dog with the world, then I highly suggest you join TiKTok.
OK, so let me give you the stats for the video, just in case it's not clear on the screenshots, the video is 10 seconds long, it has 153.0 million views, it has 21.0 million likes, it has 258.9k comments and it has been shared on different social media platforms 1.6million times.
There is nothing special about the video really, it's just a cat that is trying to reach something in a box, and I guess the phone was placed in the box so it can record the cat's attempts to reach the object that was in the box.
The channel only has 8 videos and they are all cat videos with the lowest performing video having 363.7k views.
Here are the screenshots.
And this one is the screenshot of the video
You Just Need A Phone And A Cat Or A Dog To Attract Millions Of Views On TikTok
There are many opportunities, for people who are in these three niches, But I am sure you are asking, how does that translate to visitors to your website. Well now you are able to share a link to your website, YouTube Channel and Instagram on TikTok.
On my profile I have my YouTube and my website links. The other way that you will be able to drive traffic to your offers, is by streaming live to your audience on TiKTok and sending them to your website, which you will be able to do as soon as you get to 1000 followers.
And getting 1k followers is very easy, especially for a cat or dog channel. Also remember when you are streaming live, your audience will reward you by sending you gift which you can redeem for cash via PayPal, the lowest you can redeem is $50 and the highest you can redeem per day is $1,000.
You can also add a text overlay on the video with the name of your website, imagine getting 150 million views, surely you will get visitors to your website.
Besides, even if you were to send them to your YouTube channel, lets say you post a 10 seconds clip on TikTok and then you tell them to go to your YouTube Channel to view the full video, imagine how much money you can make out of that video just from ad revenue on YouTube.
Although 150 million views does not mean 150 million people watched the video, because some people watch the video more than one time if they like it, I watched the video twice before going back to take screenshots which that also counts as a view, so technically I watched the video 3 times. But still those numbers are impressive, don't you think?
Introduction Of TikTok Market Place
TikTok has now introduced Market place, where you can register if you have over 100k followers, and then brands will be able to approach you for deals, which opens more ways to make money on the platform.
Brands will request you to make a video holding or using their products, and you will get paid, people are making as high as 5k per video, of course those are people with millions of followers, but even small accounts are making money it depends on your niche.
Another way big accounts are making money is by using music in their videos, they are being paid if they use certain sounds.
TikTok, can help you drive loads of traffic to your website or affiliate offers. There all kinds of niches on TikTok, there are people teaching how to cook, how to put make up, how to use tiktok and they have even created courses that they are selling on TikTok.
Travel channels are also performing very well, I saw a video of a couple who have a travel Channel and that video had 96 million views. Their YouTube Channel has lots of subscribers too and I bet they grew it using TikTok.
I know people are still skeptical about TikTok, and they think it's for children but there are so many people making money using the platform. I actually just created another account because on my current account I was not able to be niche targeted.
So I will grow the new account, and I will be super niche targeted, since now I have learned how the platform works.
Anyway, I just wanted to share this info.
And I would love to hear your opinion on this topic, have you tried TiTok yet? if so how has your experience been so far? and if you haven't tried what is holding you back, could it be that you think its only for young people? Or its just for fun and not for business?
Thank you so much for your likes, comments and your time.
