Reply Texas Freeway Gypsy October 23, 2019 Bored as shit watching this Reply Vadym Shapran October 23, 2019 18:27 Did he just look at me? #chills Reply Jack Yeh October 23, 2019 Love this insight: "I spend 2 seconds consuming the content. 15 minutes reading comments reacting to the content, picking up new themes, new slang, new takes" Reply ACEADELIC PRODUCTIONS October 23, 2019 lol. everyone in my groupchat sent each other this video all at once.. on the nose Gary as always. for anyone not on tiktok, if youre a creator, get on it. also feel free to follow me yall on IG & TikTok @aceadelic .. i like doing adventure videos and behind the scenes to music videos i shoot Reply Ian Bunch October 23, 2019 Dude, I respect you, but TikTok is an app for teenage girls to make lip-syncing videos. Explain to me just one way you can make a business out of this. Instagram, yes… Maybe snapchat… but definitely not tik-tok Reply Sillas P3 October 24, 2019 Just joined the text group Reply stv jrmllo October 24, 2019 Fuck Tom Brady. Fuck the Jets too though😒😅 Reply superfluityme October 24, 2019 @ CeeMajaa On The Beat It (TikTok) is a public platform we live in a public world now showing kids (kids living publicly) will be normal. Protecting kids will also have to be normal. Which is not being done at present other than in a simplistic blanket way where it then stops the communication that we are trying to have because it is easy instead of addressing the real issues properly. More and more children in the not too distant future will have their own businesses so don't worry about kids (being seen) worry they will be your competition because they know this stuff better than you and I. This is the way they will live. Reply superfluityme October 24, 2019 I didn't listen to the video 100% but Gary talked about whether TikTok will age up. It doesn't have to age up because the people using it will age up. If you have followers that are interested in what you do as they age up the app that you are on is irrelevant you move apps they follow you and on the new app you get new followers. Get dynamic the internet will be dynamic for some time to come as we figure out what to use it for the internet is a baby still.

I get the most views on that platform vs. every other one Reply Blake Chambers October 24, 2019 Very good advice. Find vids and read comments for 15 min to get the scoop for new slang terms, acronyms, trends, audience thoughts, etc Reply FilledStacks October 24, 2019 Not finding much developer related content to consume and learn from. I'll keep checking, I might just miss it. that said there's also not much business content till you came around and put it out. I'll cut up some stuff see if I can get it to fit on the platform. Reply parallel dxtr October 24, 2019 will gary vee read this comment?

Just broke 14k followers today. Still learning the platform but it's definitely worth investing time and content into Reply Enya Chen October 24, 2019 Unfortunetely the ads for brands in Tik Tok are too pricey, I think they only target big tycoons right now, in order not to overpopulate platform with ads. Reply GHOSTKID October 24, 2019 I just dropped a video just for fun… 107 000 views and still blowing up RN! Go follow me if you wanna laugh and ear good music!

Amazing Reply Hector Santana October 24, 2019 I’m on TikTok and posted some dunking videos to grow my you tube channel. I’ve gotten no response but hey that’s the name of the game. Gotta keep on keeping on Reply SEOTools TV October 24, 2019 When everybody doesn’t have any idea how to adapt their content for TikTok Gary achieves more than 1.3M followers there. Wow. All procrastinators will fail. I think the best way is to take away all your working routine and spend enough time to learn TikTok. Then provide the content that helps you to outrank your competitors in the future because young TikTok audience is growing. In a few years they will be adult customers with enough money to buy your products. Reply DONZOR October 24, 2019 IF YOU'RE READING THIS RIGHT NOW & YOU HAVE TIK TOK, GO FOLLOW ME at @DONZORX Reply Greg Gates Jr October 24, 2019 I stepped away from aggressive social content creation when TikTok was still Musically. When I first jumped on Musically, I learned SO much about the newest mobile internet/vertical video production and it accelerated my video skills. I jumped back into TikTok again today under the name @GregChats, and I’m fascinated and blown away with the initial attention I got in views with zero promotion. I need to binge on TikTok strategy because I need to understand why my first few videos got over 400 views in a few hours😳, and the last Few videos got single digits overnight. My guess: I posted at a time when youth were online at night in America, and the last few were too late-night. Anyone in the comments have any recommendations or links for some detailed TikTok strategies? Besides, of course, ALLLLL of your videos, Gary. PS- Gary, I have realized that I need to significantly limit my content consumption to support healthier social media mental health. Your videos will be one of those exceptional places that I will continue to selectively come back to for strategic inspiration and methods. Reply (b)ananartista October 24, 2019 he's right, on tiktok my art is exploding Reply Mike Craig October 24, 2019 tik tok is trash Reply Michael Balchaitis October 24, 2019 Hello GaryV, what content should I put on TikTok? I teach online. Should I just teach on TikTok but keep the age of the audience in mind? Any help would be awesome. Thank you. Reply Johnny Garcia October 24, 2019 Gary how can business owners in the marketing/advertising space take advantage of this platform? I've been studying and following TikTok the past 2 weeks. Reply THABANG BGX October 24, 2019 Thabang_bgx on TIK TOK guess and I wanna collaborate with most of you to produce content Reply skydivedickson October 24, 2019 Thanks for this. I'd love to know how an e-commerce shop could grow on TikTok. Product vids, using the product, cats with the product? Cheers Gary I'll just finish off by saying be kind to people Gary, yes that includes Brady… Reply DJ Milez October 24, 2019 I’ve been on it for about 2 months more or less uploading content 4 days a week. Their 30 sec videos vs 15 second videos. Could that reason be hurting my reach? Also the people commenting on my videos are def spam bots. Any help would be appreciated to anyone who reads this. My niche is anime so I upload mini reviews using hashtags that cater to that demographic Reply Spoder Man October 24, 2019 Gary is a tik toc shill bot! Reply SimonSays October 24, 2019 Weirdly enough Gary seems to know more about this guy's platform than he does Reply Laura Lantry October 24, 2019 I can't stand Tom Brady either. He's a CHEATER Reply 卡通回忆 October 24, 2019 如果你提供中文字幕的话，我相信你的频道肯定会比现在强大速倍 Reply Creative 7 Inc October 24, 2019 I better tik my tok over to the app now!

I've been using it for 8 months and I'm about to hit 4 million followers, and I make my full living off of it. Don't underestimate it 🙂 Reply DokaRyan October 24, 2019 Gary: How many users are on the platform? Blake: We don't release that publicly Gary: More than 1 though? Blake: Less than half a billion.

Seems like it's harder now to get the views that you used to naturally get a few months ago. Also, I dont want to see a bunch of celebrities and influencers taking over. Reply Neji October 24, 2019 But what should I do on tiktok if I don't wanna do memes or dancing Reply Exist N Nature Media October 24, 2019 Too many young ass kids and Tik Tok stopped my videos from getting attention.

Reply 6AM LOS ANGELES October 26, 2019 The TEXT ME is disingenuous. Thats not your # for one and 2nd all it does is collect peoples numbers so they can get spammed later down the line with something that they didn't ask for. For those curious google Community. Reply ItzUdai October 26, 2019 This is very true Gary, I started making TikTok videos, and one of them got to 1.7M views and some other videos got to 200K-400k views. I've been trying to build my YouTube for 2 years, and have gotten way more audience on TikTok than YouTube in a shorter amount of time. Great Advice Gary, I won't miss this opportunity.
