How to Make Money Off TikTok Getting Banned
If you’ve kept up with recent news, you’d notice that TikTok is slowly getting banned in certain countries, mainly in India, due to security reasons. We won’t go into detail about that, but I will tell you how you can still make money off TikTok getting banned. Whether you’re a TikTok user or you’ve never had a TikTok account ever, there are multiple ways for you to still make money off of it. You also just might help someone in the process of having their TikTok account banned.
Regardless of whether it gets banned or not, you need to understand what are the moves that you need to take right now. You also need to understand that platforms come and go, no matter how big they are or will get. If you understand how to transition and how to farm multiple platforms, you just might be able to protect yourself from disappearing from the public eye.
If You’re Already On TikTok
As a TikTok user, you’ve been creating content, you’ve been putting videos up consistently and doing what it is that you do on the platform. You have been providing an endless amount of videos to your followers and fans. However, the first thing that you have to understand is that platforms are never loyal. They’re not loyal to you. If you don’t transition once the platform disappears, you disappear along with it.
The main goal of platforms is to gain traffic If you’re a marketer, you’ll realize that TikTok is just one of those many platforms like Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, etc. People wonder, “What do you think the next big platform is?” and the answer is, it doesn’t matter. As long as you understand the messaging, whichever the next big platform could be, you can take that messaging that you have clarity on, and pivot then utilize it on Facebook, whether it’s on Facebook Live, Instagram, or even YouTube.
First Level: Migration
As you know, YouTube has hundreds of TikTok compilations all of which surprisingly garners millions of views. You can do the same by compiling and showcasing all your different TikTok videos into one full length video on YouTube and start getting visibility there.
At the end of your TikTok videos, you could also insert a Call To Action (CTA) where you list down your other social media handles, like YouTube or Instagram, and have them migrate over from the platform and be loyal to you instead. Understand that migrating your followers from one platform to another will still not allow you to have your own or control over traffic. These platforms will still be able to change their algorithms at any given time, and you are forced to adapt to it or ultimately die out.
Second Level: Your Own List
Good marketers would realize that traffic that they own and control is traffic that is based on their email list. Creating content on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, or on different social media platforms is to ultimately convert traffic that you don’t own to traffic that you do, that is, by building an email list. When you have an email list, it belongs to you. The income that you get is in the direct proportion to the relationship you have in the list. After building your list, it starts becoming traffic that you own and control. When you start selling a product, the people who have the most interest in you will be in your list.
If You’re NOT On TikTok
You could help TikTok influencers by helping them build a list to protect themselves and is this where they will pay you. So whether TikTok shutdowns or not, you can help these people going through this by safeguarding their business as well as their sanity. So that they know that even if TikTok gets shut down, they’ll be okay. So in other words, the skill set that you wanna be equipped with, is a super simple skill set of building up a landing page, sometimes known as a squeeze page. It’s a super simple page where you give out something for free, it could be training, blueprints, cheat sheets, swipe files, templates, downloads, or anything where you can offer them value. This is where somebody gives you their name and email address in exchange for what you give out for free.
For example, if you’re in fitness, it’s normal that in your TikTok you’ll be showing your abs, workouts and other health related posts. You could create a landing page and ask them to enter their name and email to download your personal grocery shopping list that you use to get six-pack abs because we know that abs are made in the kitchen not in the gym. Have them enter their name and email to download this free checklist and you’re on your way to building an email list.
There’s a lot of people on TikTok that have a following but they have no idea what to do with it. They don’t know the importance of actually building a list. There’s a lot of broke influencers out there who have a huge following, but they have no idea how to monetize. This is where you can step in and show them that there is a way to protect themselves.
