-Duetting already popular users, this is a great way to take advatage of someone's already large following. TikTok allows you to 'duet' another users video, menaing you can react and interact with that content.

-Using the 'Problem & Solution' method by starting your video addressing a common problem or pain point your customers have for example "Are you struggling to get your brand into retail?", then end the video with your business' solution, for us it would be "Our platform puts your products directly infront of the UK's leading retailers, giving you the best opportunity to list". Educational content like this what relates to your consumers is what is going to draw them in.

-Use TikTok to provide value whether that be to entertain, inform or inspire your audience. Think about what the video you are posting will give to it's viewers, having a clear purpose is always key.
