Unless you are living under a rock, you must be familiar with TikTok. The app has created a massive global impact ever since its inception in 2017. With over 6 billion downloads, TikTok is one of the most downloaded mobile apps ever.

Many people have been able to become social media influencers, thanks to this app. As long as you have a peculiar talent and market yourself the right way, the opportunities are endless. Do you possess a burning passion you would like to share with the world? Do you have an idea that you would like feedback on after you post a video? TikTok is one of the best platforms to try your luck.

Finding Your TikTok Niche

Before you get started with your TikTok journey, the first thing you must do is to find your niche. Sit down and think about all the things you are good at. Write down your talents and passions. Maybe you are good at Acapella. Or, you're probably into tap dancing. Well, you may even have a rare talent that many haven't seen or heard of.

Picking your niche is one of the most important things if you're looking to grow your TikTok account to anything sizable. Here are some of the popular niches on the platform:

Dancing

If you are a regular social media user, you must have recently witnessed people dancing to the vintage song, Ra Ra Rasputin. And, it's not even the first time that dancing to a famous song has gone viral on this app. TikTok and TikTokers love dancing. This niche is one of the most popular ones on this app. If you can rock a few moves, put on your dancing shoes and jump on the TikTok train. It's even better if you can choreograph your own moves. People love novel and unique content. 

Lip-syncing

Before it became TikTok, the app used to be known as Musical.ly. It started as an app where users could perform lip-sync to the songs and movie scenes. This niche is still super-hot and it will not likely fade away anytime soon. If you have the talent to lip-sync accurately, you should definitely try this app to share your talent. If you are new to this, try downloading a few videos and practice till you master the skill. Some TikTok videos are not downloadable. In such cases, you may have to screen-record those videos. Simply google how to record my screen and you will find a lot of resources on that. 

Comedy

How about sharing your talent and putting a smile on someone's face at the same time? Well, if that describes your passion, TikTok is the way to go. Comedy is another popular niche on this platform and you must try making short and funny videos if you're good at making people laugh. You can crack quirky jokes, do corny moves, play with your goofy pet, and whatnot. 

Arts and Crafts

Are you good at DIY? Do you regularly get praised by your peers for your cool crafts? Well, why not put your artistic skills into action and earn followers for doing so?!

Whether you paint, press flowers, or create some amazing woodwork, you can simply shoot your creation process and share it with the world. For better results, try speeding up the unnecessary parts. Also, put captions and set a soothing soundtrack. If your art is good, users will flock to your videos. 

Cooking

Everybody loves tasty food. However, only a few know how to cook deliciously. If you take pride in preparing luscious food, why not share it with the world?!

TikTok is well known for its short and snappy videos. If you want your cooking videos to go viral, try making short footages and then snap them together. Before uploading the video, make sure you add a pleasant soundtrack. You can post a link to your recipe in the description. If you have a blog, that's a good way to drive some traffic to it.
