🔥 Trends

Trends are a perfect way to make your video go viral. Adapt silly dances or trendy songs which relate to your case. This is a fun way to target your audience and promote. 

🍿 Video

The first few seconds of each video are the most important. Their goal is to catch the attention of potential customers, otherwise they will keep scrolling. The most popular videos last 10 seconds and have good lighting and backgrounds, as well as interesting ideas. 

The most common video editors are  Capcut, Inshot, Splice.

💃🏼 Sound

Use modern music and sounds or create your own voiceover. Video without sound is not a good idea on TikTok.

👀 Subtitles

Subtitles are a great way to add value to your video. People may have hearing difficulties or have the sound turned down or off. By creating subtitles you provide more explanation and understanding.

📍🗺️ Geolocation

This will help to narrow down your target audience. Your video should then be shown to people located in the same area as your business. 

💬 Description and hashtags

The TikTok description is limited to 100 characters. Write 1-2 sentences for additional information about the video. Add a link to the booking page/number. It will help potential clients find your website and easily book an experience. 

Use between 5-8 relevant hashtags for each post (about 3 niche hashtags and 3 broad hashtags). Examples of hashtags to use for VR business:
