YouTube Employee Reveals How To Grow Your YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram

This is a quick but game-changing tip and the biggest thing people miss. Make sure your audio helps your content!

The audio you choose on your Reels can make or break their performance. So next time you’re going to upload a piece of content, look for that up arrow icon next to the sound you’re choosing. Click on it, and make sure it has under 10K videos. That means that the sound is growing quickly and trending, but it’s not oversaturated and too competitive. That means you have the perfect opportunity to jump on it, make a piece of content, and ride the wave. 

#2 Find Inspiration for Your Next TikTok Video

Delve into your TikTok watch history to find inspiration for your next video. The feature is totally buried in TikTok’s UI, so follow these steps to find it:

  • .Head to the search bar
  • Type in an asterisk
  • Click search 
  • Toggle on view your watch history

Then you’ll be able to see all the past videos you’ve watched, save them, and then refer back to them when making your new videos for continued inspiration.
