How to use sounds and songs on Tiktok to get followers

TikTok’s music and sounds play a significant role in your content’s discoverability.

Using a trending song at the right time can mean a quick bump in likes and views.

However unlike TikTok’s Discover tab, TikTok’s Sounds are not as easily accessible as a tap of a tab. Unless you’re actively consuming video or creating one yourself within the app, you need to be a bit smarter in finding what music and sounds are getting the most traction.

Here’s how you can find trending music:

#1: Sounds in Video Editor

To find new, trending, and popular sounds on TikTok, you’ll need to go into TikTok’s video editor.

Press the plus icon at the bottom of the screen.

Note: you won’t have to film anything to view trending music!

Tap “Sounds” at the top of the screen.

Now you can scroll through what’s trending

This is an easy hack to make sure you’re on the pulse of what sounds people are using. This hub is also where your favorites list lives.

#2: Favorites

When you’re on TikTok, keep an ear out for sounds you like! Similar to “Saves” on Instagram, favoriting a sound collects it for you in your favorites

If you like a sound and want to use it in the future, tap on the sound under the username and tap “Add to Favorites”.  

#3: Sounds Your Followers Listened to

One of the best-kept secrets of the TikTok app is in the Analytics tab of TikTok Pro accounts.

Under the Followers tab, scroll down to find the top sounds your audience has listened to over the last 7 days.

Factors that Influence the TikTok Algorithm

We can only assume that the TikTok algorithm is always growing, changing, and learning from our behaviour on the app.While there’s no definitive formula for hacking the algorithm, there are a few other factors that we think could be influencing video performance and your follower growth.

How to create and edit good TikTok videos

If you’ve covered your bases with the perfect song, the ideal caption, and the timing of your post, but don’t have a strong video to share it with, does the content still perform? This is perhaps the biggest unknown of the TikTok algorithm.

How to find out when to post on TikTok

Posting content when your audience is most active is a sure way to get your content seen. And, thanks to TikTok’s Pro Accounts, you can tap into some juicy audience analytics.
