When you’re just getting started on TikTok, it can be tempting to buy new followers to quickly see your TikTok account grow. We get it. But how to get TikTok followers without paying a dime? That is the question! Lucky for you, we spill all the deets here.

Define Your Target Audience

TikTok is a big wide world full of thousands of content niches. For context, there are 94.1 million monthly active users on TikTok across various demographics, locations, and niches — and that’s just in the U.S.!

But before you get overwhelmed or the social media version of “stage fright,” consider this: There is an audience out there for every content creator and every content niche. You just need to define them.

Identify your niche

First things first, identify your content niche. Creators often fall into two categories: the creator educator, and the creator entertainer. Is your mission to teach your audience something or to entertain them? Once you’ve figured that out, you can identify the category of your content niche. For example, are you a home cook? Into fashion? A dog trainer or a Simpsons superfan? The sky’s the limit with TikTok, so have fun with it! Read More

Editor’s Pick - Smartless: On the Road

For every podcaster out there that is constantly looking to elevate their game, there's an amazing series you simply can't miss, 'Smartless: On the Road', exclusively available on MAX, previously known as HBO MAX. The series takes us along on a fun ride with the dynamic trio of Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, and Sean Hayes, as they navigate the thrills and spills of taking their wildly popular podcast, 'Smartless', on an epic, mostly celebrity-studded live tour.

'Smartless: On the Road' offers an unprecedented insider's perspective into what it truly means to take a podcast on tour. The series features countless lessons learned and challenges faced by even these seasoned celebrities in the quest to produce a high-quality podcast. From scheduling guest appearances to writing compelling questions, from creating an engaging rapport with their audience to maintaining the grueling pace of life on the road, this series reveals it all. It's an unfiltered, behind-the-scenes look that brings into focus the intricate dynamics and relentless drive it takes to succeed in the podcasting world. I can’t recommend it enough.

Those who have been on the podcasting journey with Spotify since 2019 have seen how rapidly their platform has grown to adopt and innovate in the world of video podcasts. In 2020, they introduced video podcasts for a select number of shows, followed by a larger rollout in 2021. In 2022, they enabled the feature in a few markets, and then made it fully available to even more creators through our Spotify for Podcasters platform.

At their Stream On event in March, when they announced their updates to Spotify for Podcasters, they shared that there were 70,000 video podcasts on-platform. Today, Spotify is excited to announce that there are now more than 100,000 video podcasts on Spotify.

Since they’ve made video podcasts available for creators in nearly every market, the medium has become core to the Spotify podcast experience, with shows all around the world utilizing the format to deepen engagement with fans. The U.S., Brazil, Mexico, the U.K., and Germany publish the most video podcasts, but they’re also seeing great adoption in markets like the Philippines, where video podcasts account for over half of podcast consumption.
