On The 5th Day of Tik Tok - Some Observations

Last Update: February 13, 2021

It is 5 days since I started using Tik Tok. It has been fun, intense, information overload as it always is when starting to use a new platform. The analytics is starting to show up after reaching nearly 2500 views in total on my videos. As I have started to get a fair number of views, Tik Tok has started to get interested in some of my videos, and they are "being processed" as Tik Tok states in the app.

The current stats are a total of 2264 views of my videos. That is in 4 1/2 day! I have 33 followers and 42 views on my profile. At the moment I cannot see if there has been someone clicking through to my website as I do not have enough followers yet. I need to go to Google Analytics to check if I can see the data there.

Another interesting observation is that the audience I am reaching is in the Northern Hemisphere, the Nordic countries and some countries in the former Eastern Block region. There is no traffic from the USA, Australia or Asia for some reasons that I have yet to discover. This will one of the tasks to sort out this weekend.

I have not seen any conversions into sales yet. I have one affiliate link in the bio of Tik Tok, and have another 2 links spread over some videos.

Other observations are that there is a lot of very good information about how to utilize Instagram. The reason is that you can cross-post to Instagram, which is a very powerful feature.

There is also, a lot of "chain mail" activity going on to drive the follower numbers above 1000 viewers to get more features unlocked form the platform. This activity can be quite annoying, but it is just to scroll past it and focus on the organic content of real value.

Have a great "Tikking and Tokking" day

Good morning Roy,

I hope you're doing well.

Thank you for another interesting blog post, I think it's great that you're documenting on Wealthy Affiliate, regarding your progress.

As I mentioned before I don't know very much at all about Tik Tok, however, I have read some of Roope's posts on the subject.

If I remember correctly, Roope said that most of your traffic will come from where your Sim card is registered on your phone. So for example, if I registered for Tik Tok I would receive UK traffic as I am in the UK and have a UK Sim card.

My Samsung S-10 has space for two Sim cards, what would happen if you put a second Sim card in from another country? I have no idea, but it's just a thought.

Have you looked up how people overcome this country issue, Roy?

Thanks for the info Roy, it's interesting and appreciated.

Have a great day.

Roy

Good morning, Roy :-)

I haven´t read up on Roopes Tik Tok adventures yet. I have it on y schedule today. But that will explain the source of my audience.

I will read up on Tik Tok´s support pages as well as searching for how to´s.

If you have a double sim card with a sim from i.e. the USA, I suppose it would work.

In the meantime, I will have to promote my Tik Tok account via my other channels like YouTube and Facebook.

Good morning Roy,

It was interesting to know how people get over the issue of Tik Tok only being promoted to their own country. I guess you have huge advantages if you come from a large country, not so good if you are from a small country!

I guess there must be a way around this issue? I really don't know if the dual sim card would work, it would be interesting to know the answer.

Wishing you all the best in your Tik Tok experiments.

Well done Roy,
I’m just starting on a new & different platform, so really appreciate how much work has gone into your current results.
My daughter is a freelance digital marketeer and she tells me all the time how difficult it is to manage Tik Tok analytics, how one day you are building traffic and then all of a sudden zero views, she is always telling me don’t niche down too much in the very early days.
It would seem you are one step ahead. So I am doffing my cap Roy,

Looking forward to your next Tik Tok analytic/progress report.. 🤞

Thank you, Cordelia. I try to mix the videos a bit, to not be to narrow.

So far, so good, Chigs. It takes some time to get used to the platform. But what I am starting to see, is that Tik Tok is going to get big.
