Many people want to start on TikTok, and there’s just one thing that stops them from diving headlong to this thriving sphere.
Can you guess what that ‘thing’ is?
While creating high-quality, valuable and trending content is part and parcel of the TikTok experience, it might surprise you that this is not the only thing people devote their time to where TikTok is concerned.
There is no second chance for making a first impression, and getting many TikTok followers doesn't come easy; you should never underestimate your TikTok's username.
TikTokers from all over the world have a hard time deciding their TikTok username.
If the phase of contemplating usernames with no result sounds familiar to you, keep on reading, we’ll help you make up your mind about it.
Does Choosing My TikTok Username Really Require So Much Attention?
Admittedly, the answer to this question differs.
Does your intuition tell you to write a username with many special characters and numbers, and the cherry on top at the end is adding a string of several letters; we advise you to reconsider (and get a pen and paper to write down our suggestions).
The very basic principle for choosing the ideal TikTok username is making it simple and short.
If you manage a personal account (the classic TikTok account), and your full name is already taken, you can add ‘I am’/ initial of your first or last name at the beginning to solve this problem.
Another way to bring an edge to your TikTok username is by inserting an adjective in your username that also begins with the latter's first letter.
Alternatively, you can also use a word that hints at your videos’ niche, such as the TikToker ‘peterprankster’.
Finally, you can also go with a word that rhymes with your first name instead.
What About Business Accounts?
Are there any business accounts in the crowd, or any soon-to-be ones?
Our tips for you to create a username that has a ring to it are as follows:
First and foremost, the company or brand name is the obvious suggestion and should be your go-to username for any social media page.
Alternatively, you can differentiate your TikTok username by adding ‘TikTok’/ the physical location of your store (if there is one), or even top it off with ‘official’ to make your username stand out even more.
One final note: well-known brands that find their names' already taken are never alone! You can always report to TikTok, and they’ll help you get your name back.
For any bystander trying to figure out TikTok, TikTok probably looks like endless fun and games.
However, many people don’t know that becoming viral on TikTok requires the finest resources at one’s hand if they really want to make it big on the app.
While the content and videos on TikTok are the core of the TikTok experience, videos are not the TikTokers' only worry.
Rather, any new TikToker about to embark on a new journey should pay attention to forming a catchy username that will speak louder than any lengthy social media post on other platforms.
