Shooting Your Video
You can either shoot your video on the TikTok app or on your phone and upload it to TikTok later. Shooting on TikTok is easier if you can shoot it in one take or the video is short. It’s also easier to sync up to music. Editing is easier if you shoot on your phone camera if you need to put together multiple clips or have a longer video. Whatever way you choose, make sure the video is clear and has good lighting.
Shorter videos are better. You want to get to the point quickly so viewers don’t lose interest. It is also helpful to entice the viewer to keep watching by promising something valuable like answering a common question or giving tips on how to do something.
Transitions make your video more fun and engaging. Not every video is going to need transitions, but if you’re showing a before and after, changing outfits, or switching locations, using a fun transition will greatly help the video’s engagement.
Videos are popular because people can see movement and listen to sounds. All your videos should include some sort of sound whether you’re talking or putting music behind the video. Use songs that are on trend or currently popular to reach more people. There might be a trend based on a specific song, so don’t be afraid to do what others are doing.
Posting Your Video
Once the video is filmed and ready to post, make sure to give it a good caption. Ask your viewers a question or encourage them to comment. Accounts that are consistently active and have lots of videos are more likely to go viral. Stay up on the trends and be creative! We hope you have fun making TikTok videos using your ring light.
