TikTok is one of the most popular social media apps in the world, and its ability to engage people makes it a highly powerful business tool. Therefore, if your business doesn’t have a TikTok account, it needs to get one.
The problem is, however, that it not only requires you to develop a whole new set of social media skills, but it also needs constant attention to keep people engaged. So, business owners need someone to step in and provide the perfect solution. And that person is a TikTok virtual assistant.
A Quick Breakdown of Virtual Assistants
A TikTok virtual assistant is a type of multimedia virtual assistant. For those of you who are new to virtual assistants, this may need a bit of explaining.
Let’s start by looking at the basics of a virtual assistant.
Every business relies on assistants. After all, a business owner can’t do everything and, with the risk of burnout higher than ever before, it’s crucial that they can delegate.
Accordingly, assistants have proven the go-to solution ever since the first business was founded. But, very quickly, the definition of who and what an assistant is has shifted.
Up until a few years ago, an assistant would have commuted to their workplace, set up their desk, turned on their PC, and got to work. And, of course, they would have spent a significant part of their day making coffee runs and chatting with colleagues at the water cooler. This approach has been successful, but as the business world has become more and more competitive, the need to make marginal, incremental gains has skyrocketed.
The result of this new landscape has been the emergence of virtual assistants, and they have proven to be wildly popular with businesses.
But what is a virtual assistant?
The answer is simple, it’s the same as your traditional assistant, but they can be located anywhere on the planet. The only thing they need to connect with your business is an internet connection. Yes, thanks to advances in speed and reliability of internet services, a remote worker can easily connect with your IT infrastructure.
But a virtual assistant doesn’t give you an edge simply due to the space they save you in the office. In fact, they come pre-loaded with a number of mouthwatering benefits. From saving your business significant costs in wages to enhanced productivity and flexibility, working with a virtual assistant is a modern business solution.
How Can a TikTok Virtual Assistant Help Your Brand?
TikTok is an innovative and unique social media platform, so it’s vital that you bring the right type of virtual assistant on board. So, for example, a medical virtual assistant wouldn’t be the person to turn to when you need help with TikTok. It requires a different skillset, such as those possessed by a social media expert, or a graphic designer.
Ultimately, you’re looking for an individual who understands both social media and the impact of strong visuals. And that’s exactly what a TikTok virtual assistant is. So, once you start working with one, you can expect them to excel in the following areas:
Editing TikTok videos:
A successful TikTok video will be all about the edit, but editing videos is a skill. You need to be able to get the right cuts, the right timings, and the right music. Then combine them all seamlessly. For a business owner, this may be asking too much, but a TikTok virtual assistant will know exactly what to do. And with full access to your storage systems, a TikTok virtual assistant will be able to remotely access your footage and edit it to deliver an end product which engages users from all around the world.
Scheduling TikTok videos:
Scheduling is everything when it comes to TikTok, with certain times proving to generate more engagement than others. However, this requires focus and dedication, two elements in which a TikTok virtual assistant is rich. Another important task they can take on is creating a TikTok calendar, this will allow them to monitor weekly schedules and ensure all your videos are prepped and ready to go.
Uploading TikTok videos:
Once your TikTok videos are scheduled, the next step is to publish them when the time is right. And a TikTok virtual assistant is highly proficient at this. Thanks to their knowledge and expertise, they can complete this task in a number of ways. Using their time management and IT skills, they can utilize calendar reminders to keep the upload schedule running like clockwork. Alternatively, they are fully trained in using the best apps for scheduling automatic, time-based uploads such as Buffer and Hootsuite.
Carry out research:
If you want your TikTok videos to soar in popularity, then there are two things you need to know: which are the best hashtags and music to use. TikTok is all about the algorithm, and if you want to crack the algorithm, you need the right hashtags. Likewise, music is crucial for engaging users on TikTok. But researching all of this is time-consuming. So, this is where a TikTok virtual assistant can really prove their worth. With the time to focus on in-depth research, they can make sure your TikTok videos hit deep.
Connect with your followers:
Engaging with your followers is vital if you want your videos to succeed on TikTok, but, if your account is successful, this can be an incredibly time-consuming affair. Luckily, a dedicated TikTok virtual assistant has this time. Therefore, they can respond to all the user comments posted below your TikTok videos. This makes your followers feel more special and more engaged with your brand. And this is the surest way to convince your followers to share your content and enhance the reach of your business.
Grow your followers:
If you want your business to be seen as a performer on social media, you need a healthy number of followers. And we’re not talking hundreds of followers, we’re talking thousands and thousands of followers. But, as with growing all audiences, this takes time, dedication, and skill. Thankfully, this is something that a TikTok virtual assistant can make look easy. Due to their experience, they can perform all the tricks and techniques required to get your follower numbers heading in the right direction.
Master TikTok Advertising:
One of the most powerful aspects of TikTok is its advertising strength. However, advertising campaigns on TikTok need to be tailored carefully and expertly. Competition is strong on TikTok, so it’s vital that you can get your ads served to potential customers. This means optimizing your ads through excellent scripts, clickability, and visual appeal. A TikTok virtual assistant can make this a reality by using the best techniques to get your ads noticed and move users down the conversion funnel.
