You want to support your idol on TikTok as it's your favorite platform. But you are wary. Should you start a fan page? How will you manage it along with your channel on TikTok?
You want it to grow and thrive, but you need to know the drill. This post will tell you everything about fan pages, how to start them, and how to scale them.
Once you have decided to start a fan page to meet like-minded people with similar interests, creating a fan page on TikTok will be easy. Luckily, you only need to follow the steps you took when you started your channel on TikTok. Here is the simple process to get started.
Start by following your heart. You might assume that creating a fan page about a famous account will increase the chances of your page's success. After all, you will invest your efforts and want a return in followers, likes, and cash.
But many creators forget that money is the result of passion and motivation. You will only remain motivated for a short time if you are invested in the person behind the account or the interests. So, go after your interest and stay consistent with it.
Please keep it simple. You may have to consider a few variations of your chosen variations because the one you chose was taken. If you have to choose, I will keep the selected variation as simple as possible.
Why is simplicity a paramount feature of usernames? That's because it makes the name memorable, allowing people to recognize it when they see your post.
Will your fan page focus on the celebrity or interest you chose? Or will you keep the content broad for other ideas as well?
This choice will determine what you will write in the bio. Keep it specific and indicate your passion for the page if you want it to be focused. But if you will follow multiple interests, go with a broad and motivating bio.
You wouldn't want it to be a copy. That's common sense! Besides, make it attractive and unique. Please match the pic with the color theme you choose for your page. If the image is relevant to the interest, it's even better but unnecessary.
These are all the steps you need to complete to start a fan page on TikTok. Creating a fan page on any social media platform is easy. What is difficult is making it successful. Don't worry; we will also discuss that part in this post.
But before you access some foolproof and widely successful tips for promoting your fan page, let's consider your motivation behind going on this path. People create fan pages for various reasons. Please tell me which reason you are pursuing.
Are you a true fan of a celebrity, movie, or anime and want to celebrate their updates and achievements? Celebrity fan pages are purely created out of motivation to share your knowledge about them, pay tribute to them, support them on media, and learn more about them. Usually, money isn't a priority for these pages.
In another situation, you are keenly invested in a celebrity and their crafts and have been inspired by them to take up that craft. The purpose of this page will be to monetize your skill and aspiration from TikTok. The primary catalyst will be your motivation, but money will be addressed. These accounts are the best and have lots of potential to grow.
The third reason behind some TikTok fan pages is money. They start by scanning the best-performing accounts and fan pages to see where people attract followers and likes. Some of these accounts perform well on monetary terms, but you will see that most will publish mediocre content. That brings us to the most significant advantage of starting a fan page on TikTok – to utilize the fame earned by a celebrity or a notable account on the platform for your benefit. It's easy, it's quick, and people will love you for creating a platform that aligns with their interests.
Did you look at the different types of fan pages on this platform? For which reason do you identify? Even if it's the third reason with the only monetization goal, you should do good work by following your interest.
Instead of looking at the most famous fan page on TikTok, you should search for the most renowned fan page in your desired category. But you should also follow the most famous fan page to get inspiration.
Previously, Charli Grace D'Amelio was the most popular TikTok account. But in June 2022, Italian comedian Khaby Lame took over the throne from her to become the most followed account on the platform.
Still, Charli's fan pages attract more followers than Khaby Lame's. @cobblemelio is the top fan page account that follows Charli. It has 123 million followers. You can follow her to see these fans' posts on their pages.
Absolutely! As fan pages grow, they amass followers, and with a considerable following comes huge attention and influence. In short, you can become an influencer only by cashing out the fame of another account. It's interesting.
But you must work hard and be patient; this success is challenging.
One of the most significant milestones for TikTokers is to get a verification badge from the platform. Unfortunately, verification will not be an easy feat for fan pages. The platform requires you to show identity and authenticity to be verified. But most TikTokers create fan pages as secondary pages, and these accounts are not tied to their real accounts.
In other words, the primary verification requirement must be added on fan pages. Even if your content is engaging, unique, and high-quality, the profile will always need more verification standards.
That said, you can still succeed in getting your fan page verified if you have created it using your identity. A fan page's verification probability rises if you include different content themes. In other words, if your content covers additional topics in addition to the celebrity for which you have made the fan page, you have a higher chance of getting verification.
Starting a fan page is easy. Making it successful takes time and effort. This section will tell authentic ways to grow your following. Always remember that buying likes and followers are quick fixes that work. But the impact of these fixes is short-term, and you shouldn't rely on them to help you beyond the initial stages of promoting your channel.
The long-term and lasting strategy is organic and demands work and dedication. Here is the whole strategy that will earn you a credible following with time.
It would be best to have a profile to let people know about the purpose of the page you created. This profile is especially important if you want to use a follow-for-follow strategy with fans of the same celebrity (we shall discuss this in the following few paragraphs).
Use attractive but clean photos. It should be high-quality, and the subject should be clear so the followers can recognize it when your videos appear in their feeds. Uphold the same standard for the username to keep it memorable.
Create and upload a couple of videos on the page. When creating these videos, stick to your niche. These videos will reinforce your commitment to stick to your celebrity. Of course, you need to keep these pieces coherent and high-quality to attract t viewers – just like any other video you will upload to your page.
Once you have uploaded a few videos, you should start building your following. Note that you can do this step before uploading the content, but the videos on your page will multiply the results you will get from the following.
This strategy includes you searching for fan pages of the celebrity for which you have made the page. When these fans appear, you should follow them. Make sure only to follow active accounts. If a follower has been engaged for a few months, you can safely assume they will not interact or help your growth.
You will see that some of the pages you have followed will follow you back. To further this interaction, you can engage with their content so they will develop an interest in yours.
Most of your videos will be about the celebrity you are fanning. Whether you are re-sharing their content, stitching different clips together, or giving your opinion or reaction about their content, keep the viewpoint fresh and fun. Know the strengths of your personality and your angle of seeing their content and use it to entertain your followers.
Also, do your research and create videos about the lifestyle of your influencer. Let your page grow as the only informative fan page about the celebrity. You can also include glimpses into your life to make the videos more authentic. For example, make a dress-up comparison. Keep it fun and real.
Everybody talks about the attention span of netizens, but you also have to consider another critical psychological metric if you want to succeed online – short-term memory duration. Understand that you should appear in their daily recommendations to gain attention and follow on these platforms. It's better if you appear twice a day.
Now that I have made a point about the frequency of posting videos on TikTok, I was hoping you would not let this frequency imbalance the regularity of posting. You need to create a schedule and stick to it. If you commit to two videos daily, make a video bank to prevent natural lapses from interrupting that schedule.
And if you cannot commit to multiple videos daily, uploading a single video every day will be enough. Whatever frequency you choose, you should stick to it.
Ultimately, you need to join the conversation by commenting on other people's posts. This will widen your circle and increase the reach of your videos.
Why would you want to create a fan page other than meeting with fans and following your celebrity crush? Money can be the answer, but this answer only gets a little necessary. For most fans, paying tribute to the efforts and impact of their idol is the biggest reason that motivates them to create a fan page.
Do you know that your idols can notice your efforts in supporting them on your favorite social media channel and might contact you to meet them? Well, celebrities have invited their biggest fans to their shows and performances previously, and one of those fans can be you.
This post discusses creating a fan page and scaling it to grow viewership and follower base. You need to ensure to produce high-quality content and upload regularly. Plus, interacting with fellow creators' content will also help with growth.
