Understanding the Challenge

In the big world of TikTok, it can be tough to ensure your videos reach the right people. It's not just about making fun videos; you must figure out how users engage with them before sharing them on the platform. This involves a bit of a challenge.

The Mystery of the TikTok Algorithm

TikTok has a smart system that picks what videos to show you. It looks at things like how long people watch a video, if they like or comment on it, and what kind of videos they usually enjoy. Understanding this system is like solving a mystery—it helps you get more people to watch your videos.

Don't Guess, Test!

Sometimes, we might think our videos are great, but it's better to test and be sure. Relying on assumptions can make us miss out. To know what people like, you must test your videos and see what works best.

The Journey to Success

Figure Out Your Audience

First things first: know who you're making videos for. What kind of people are interested in your content? Knowing this helps you test videos that they'll like and share.

Preview and Polish

Before sending your TikTok out into the world, create a few slightly different versions. Experiment with captions, music, or editing styles. Share these variations with a select group to determine which gets the best response. This testing phase helps you refine your content for maximum impact.

Continuous Improvement

Success on TikTok is an ongoing journey. Stay adaptable by watching trends, listening to feedback, and consistently refining your content. The key to increasing views lies in a commitment to continuous improvement.

Where Can You Run Tests and Improve Your TikTok Views?

You have a few options when deciding where to run a test before your TikTok video. If your test is focused on social media, the platform you're using might have built-in testing tools in their business software.

The best option is to use an Integrated Consumer Research Platform with Insights AI, such as Decode. Consumer Research Platforms work well if you want to test things beyond just social media.
