How Do You Get Verified on Tik Tok?
Getting a blue checkmark on TikTok usually takes some time and work.
The TikTok team searches for users based on algorithms and other criteria to decide if the user should be verified or not. On other social media platforms you can apply for verification, but not on TikTok.
What does being Verified on TikTok Mean?
- There’s a blue tick beside your name.
- It shows users your account is to be trusted
- Your account has been vetted by the TikTok team, and it’s the real deal.
Users can get verified and get that blue tick next to their name. A Tiktok verification can be a huge boost for your brand as it helps you build credibility.
It is quite easy for celebrities and media personalities to get the blue tick. TikTok will verify you if you’re already verified on other platforms like Instagram and Twitter.
Accounts with the checkmark are prioritized when it comes to getting content in front of viewers. This is because TikTok has vetted the account and they’re sure that users will engage with the content being put out.
How many followers do you need to get verified on TikTok?
TikTok doesn’t have a set number of followers as a criterion to get verified. What they look at is the level of activity on your account.
According to the TikTok creator launch team, to be verified your account needs to be getting:
- Consistent views
- High watch time
- Consistent follower growth of about 500 – 2000 every day.
And your content should also be going viral consistently.
Do verified TikTokers get paid?
- TikTok does not pay verified creators directly.
With a verified account you will be more likely to get endorsements, and different brand sponsorships. This is the surest way to get paid on the platform.
Even though TikTok doesn’t pay these creators, they work closely with creators to pair them with relevant brands that they can benefit from. The official TikTok account on other platforms pushes creators and brings exposure to their brand through viral videos and ads.
