To keep ahead of the social media curve, you need to master new features as they become available. Being an early adopter of a feature gives you a leg up on the competition once it becomes widely used. TikTok has been discreetly growing its TikTok Stories feature, which consists of short, segmented movies and is TikTok’s equivalent to the Story features on Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat.
Since Stories hasn’t been widely promoted, there is unrealized potential for advertisers that take advantage of it. TikTok Stories are an additional resource for reaching an audience 2.5 times more interested in watching short-form videos.
Here is the tutorial if you want to learn more about the new TikTok Story feature.
TikTok Stories may only be up to 15 seconds long. Like the narrative features of other platforms, they remain accessible for 24 hours after being posted. You’ll see a post about your tale in your feed labeled “story” in the top left. If you require more than 15 seconds to get your point across, you may divide your Story post into many segments by publishing multiple Stories within 24 hours.
How do TikTok Stories work?
Stories you create on TikTok will appear on your profile and in your regular feed. These may be recognized by the blue “Story” symbol seen in the upper left corner. The blue ring around your profile photo will be a clickable link to your Story whenever a reader lands on your page while you post a Story. Your fans can watch your TikTok Story the same way they watch your regular videos—on the For You page. The choices for responding to this post are identical to those of any other TikTok video. Similar to a regular feed post, viewers may engage with your Story by giving it a thumbs up, writing a thoughtful remark, or even sharing it with their own network.
Where and how to upload your TikTok video
Here is all you need to know about making your own TikTok Story. The entire process of making one will be walked through for you.
To begin making a TikTok video, head to the video editor.
To add something to your TikTok, tap the + sign. Pre-film is unnecessary if you want to shoot your narrative in-engine. To access the Stories tab, swipe down from the main menu. TikTok Stories are still quite new, so they may not be accessible in your location yet. Your app may just need an update.
Choose a time limit.
To use the timer, choose it from the menu on the side. You can adjust the timer from one to fifteen seconds by dragging the slider. A three-second or ten-second countdown timer may be selected here as well.
Make something original.
Be creative with your TikTok Stories using the same filters, effects, and transitions as any other in-feed post.
Once you’ve recorded your video, you may edit it in several ways, including reducing its resolution, adding stickers, effects, filters, and even narrating it. The audio in your TikTok video can also be modified.
TikTok Story Deletion Instructions
Your TikTok Story will be available for 24 hours, but if that’s too long, or if you change your mind about the video, you can always delete it. Visit your profile and select the “Stories” tab. To access the side menu, select the three dots button. To remove something, scroll to the bottom of the list of possibilities. When you select it, your Story will be removed.
Share your TikTok Experience with the World
Choose “Next” to proceed. From there, you may pick a cover for your post, adjust your privacy settings, and add a description, hashtags, a location, a mention, or video credits. To proceed, just hit the “Publish” button.
Collaborating with TikTok Stories
Naturally, the goal of social media is to broaden one’s reach. A new approach to connect with your audience and encouraging participation is available now with TikTok Stories. This new feature allows you to strengthen relationships with people who have previously shown interest in your content by limiting the stories they see in the Stories panel to those from accounts they are following.
TikTok Stories require a different approach than regular TikTok material, especially if you want to gain widespread exposure. Here are some suggestions for maximizing likes on TikTok with this innovative presentation method:
- Provide them something they can’t get anyplace else by publishing original material.
- Provide discount codes
- Start a Q&A
- Share some of the processes with your fans. Take a look at your typical day.
- Post notices
- Tips, hacks, and techniques.
As social media develops, sites will go outside the box to develop better ways for businesses and artists to communicate with their fans. Getting familiar with them early is the most effective way to ensure your social marketing doesn’t plateau. Also, platforms favor content from users that make the most of the platform’s capabilities. Incorporating TikTok Stories into your content strategy is beneficial in every way.
