If you’re an artist and have an art business, you should be on TikTok! Why? Because that is where the engagement is.
People no longer want to see stale still images, they want to see videos of the process, what you create, how you package your orders, and so on.
Video is more interesting than images. In this day and age, if you aren’t creating videos for your art business, you are 100% missing out.
TikTok has been a game-changer for how artists and creatives are getting their message out to the world. I use TikTok as a huge part of my social media marketing for my art business.
What Is TikTok?
TikTok is a social video app where users can create content that’s 15 seconds to 3 minutes long. You can easily find the people and communities you want to follow on TikTok.
TikTok Has Very High Levels Of Engagement
If you’re an artist or creative who wants to make it big, this is one of the best platforms for you.
TikTok has the highest levels of engagement in the industry. With over 500 million daily active users, it has the most engaged user base of any social network today.
Your chances of going viral are so much higher on TikTok vs any other social media platform.
Artists And Creatives Are Making It Big On TikTok
TikTok is a great platform for artists and creatives to share their content. It’s a fast-paced, fun, and easy-to-use app.
I have seen so many artists whose businesses have been forever changed because of TikTok. All it takes is for one viral video for you to be sold out for months. Because of the algorithm, you can easily reach so many different audiences on TikTok that will get your work in front of many eyes.
It’s Easy To Go Viral
There are constantly new trends coming to light on TikTok every day. Following trends can help you go viral easily, along with satisfying and interesting content. One of my most viral videos is literally a 5-second clip of me sealing a wood slice sign.
You Can Record And Edit Your Videos Right On The App
This is a lifesaver for me. I record and edit 99% of my videos right on the app. There has been only a handful of times that I’ve edited my videos on another editing platform. The app has so many features that make it very easy to edit there.
Video Ideas Are Endless
There are so many ideas for videos. You will never run out of content ideas which is helpful. Check out my post on TikTok video ideas for some inspiration to get started on TikTok.
TikTok Is For All Artists (Regardless Of What Medium)
TikTok is not limited to painters or graphic designers, the platform is great for all artists, no matter what medium. Aside from visual artists, this social media platform is obviously also excellent for musicians.
This Post Was All About TikTok For Artists.
I hope that this post has helped you understand a little why TikTok is the place to be for creatives and artists. In the beginning, when I first started posting on TikTok, I was nervous. TikTok has grown my business so much since I joined the app in 2020 and I am forever thankful!
There are so many different ways you can approach the app to be successful. I highly recommend all creative people to use it to promote their businesses and art, no matter what type of artist you art!
