How To Survive Another TikTok Ban as a Creator?
Australia bans TikTok on government devices over security concerns.
Following Australia's ban on TikTok due to security concerns, many wonders which country will be next to take action against the Chinese-owned app. With mounting pressure from US lawmakers, it's starting to feel like a total ban on TikTok in the United States could happen.
A company that helps people expand their reach by breaking down language barriers, we understand the anxiety that comes with the potential loss of reach. That's why we've put together some tips for creators to help them overcome this troubling situation.
First, Don’t rely on just one platform
It's important to remember that relying on one platform for your brand and reach is never a good idea. As we have seen with TikTok, a platform can be taken away at any moment, leaving creators without a backup plan.
That's why it's crucial to diversify your platforms and focus on building a strong presence on multiple platforms. Diversifying your content across multiple platforms like LinkedIn, YouTube, and Instagram is crucial for building meaningful relationships with your audience.
Focus on “Creating”
As a creator, your main focus should always be on creating content that resonates with your audience. Instead of worrying about the future of TikTok, focus on creating engaging and valuable content that showcases your skills and personality.
If you are passionate about what you do and create content that speaks to your audience, your followers will follow you wherever you go.
Build a Community
TikTok's short-form format can also make it difficult for creators to build a community with their audience. Unlike platforms like YouTube and Twitch, creators can't directly communicate with their fans through comments and live streams.
Many creators are turning to other platforms like Discord to create functional, intimate spaces for their community members to convene.
Explore new platforms
While TikTok has quickly become a key platform for creators, there are other platforms that are worth exploring. Instagram Reels, for example, is an excellent platform for short-form videos, and YouTube is still a powerhouse for long-form content. By exploring new platforms, you can expand your reach and reach new audiences.
Finally, Explore new revenue streams
While ad revenue from platforms like TikTok can be lucrative, it's important to explore other ways of monetizing your content. Consider creating products like merchandise or digital products, or even partnering with brands for sponsored content or affiliate marketing.
Remember, while changes and challenges in the industry can be difficult, they also present opportunities for growth and creativity. These tips will help you navigate the changing landscape of social media and content creation with confidence.
