Social media is all about first impressions.
The law of the jungle dictates, 'only the strongest will survive'.
Surprisingly enough, the same is true for 2021’s jungle, the different social media platforms.
To ensure we stand out from the rest of TikTok's users, we have to gear up with an enchanting profile picture alluring many clicks, visits, and eventually likes and followers too.
The fantastic video-creating app TikTok is no different from other social media platforms on this matter.
Therefore, this article will delve into how to choose the most effective TikTok profile picture and reveal another great use of TikTok’s Bio section that might be unknown to you.
A TikTok-Profile Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words (And Likes)
Since our profile picture on TikTok is literally an ‘ambassador’, we have to choose it carefully and make sure that this photo has captured us in our best.
Although it sounds shallow and hard to believe that in 2021, the world and social platforms in particular still follow such an old-fashioned attitude, making it big on TikTok is not possible unless you’re really in the game.
While some use a video in their TikTok profile instead of a stills picture, this phenomenon is less common and recommended if you want to leave a positive impact on your potential followers.
If you wonder how to get TikTok followers through a great profile pic, here’s our advice for you: ‘Regular’ TikTok accounts usually upload a face shot with a clear distinction between their face and the background.
We don’t see full-body pictures on TikTok quite often, so you might prefer to avoid such an idea with the profile pic’s ellipse being rather small to display a detailed photo in solid quality.
The ideal profile photo for a Business account is one featuring the company’s logo.
How thorough is your TikTok Bio knowledge? Did you know that you can add links to your Bio?
The option of links' addition in our TikTok Bio is divided into two groups – links that classic users could add and links benefitting only verified users.
- Worry not, because both users could provide link buttons to their YouTube and Instagram pages.
If you haven’t added links in your Bio just yet, you should give it a shot because it increases your engagement on other platforms, in addition to TikTok.
- Unfortunately, adding links to unrelated social-media links, such as brand-sites or else, is only allowed for verified accounts.
However, TikTok is working on enabling this privilege to everyone. Leveraging your TikTok profile to prompt website traffic is a solid strategy in generating more leads.
- Finally, a simple method to grab the TikTokers’ attention is by adding emojis to your Bio, making it significantly more communicative and fun to read.
We don’t need to tell you how fun the TikTok sphere is; you already know it yourselves.
However, before rushing to all the high-quality entertainment that waits for you there, we highly recommend taking a moment to choose the best username and fine-tune your Bio; it surely pays back in the future, bringing in more followers and likes!
