40 TikTok hooks that might make you go viral
Updated: Dec 6, 2022
I have to admit, as a Millenial, Marketer and Media Designer I thought TikTok is for teenagers only. A bit like SnapChat. But then there was GaryVee talking about TikToks all the time and about NFTs. So I thought to give it a chance and dig deeper into these new technologies. Whereas NFTS are a bit harder to wrap my head around, I suddenly understood a thing or two about TikTok from my long experience as a creative media designer and marketer.
Everything seems to fall into place right here and right now. The age of storytelling has arrived. And quality doesn't matter too much anymore. GenZ loves authentic and relatable content. So the word "relatable" was a bit abstract but I finally got it what it meant. It means that someone has exactly the problem you are showing them. Or they can relate to it because they have experienced it before. This is exactly what TikTok is about. The truth of daily living, making really bad jokes like the ones you would only do with your best friends and so cringe-worthy you wouldn't dare to share it with your boss or mother in law.
Now an older demographic coming to TikTok, the 30-50+ should leave you thinking and make you hop onto this train as long as there is something left like organic reach. I am not gonna lie and tell you that you need the storytelling skills and valuable content to still kill it on TikTok. The dream of growth without work is not coming true also on this platform. But still there are chances to go viral, and that is basically the idea with each video.
The only follower count you should worry about is to reach 1000 followers as this will enable you to add your website link to your bio. TikTok is as good as your latest video in the eyes of other TikTok users. I spare you the technical details of the video production in this article and soley focus on sharing some ideas with you that could help you finding ideas for video production. By the way, these will help you in any other marketing situation as well.
To save you some time I have collected story hooks that you can use for your stories of your product or services.
