How to get verified on TikTok
When you get a blue tick verification on TikTok, it’s just like other social platforms; you get a big boost to your profile. It shows your (potential) followers that you’re legitimate & authentic.
A blue tick is something everyone wants, it gives you a lot of credibility. However, it’s not easy to get the blue tick on TikTok. Verification is only for celebrities, big brands, public figures & publishers. Besides that, you need to be ‘legit’ enough and that’s where it’s a grey area. There are no specific requirements to be verified on TikTok.
The main idea of blue verification ticks, is protecting popular TikTok creators who’re getting impersonated, copied or bullied. Besides that, it attracts important public figures to use the social platform.
Can you request verification on TikTok?
Unlike other big social platforms, it’s not possible to request verification yourself. TikTok staff seeks for accounts which might require verification & grants it theirselfs. Besides that, there are TikTok partners who can submit your request as well. Most of the times those are influencer agencies & managements.
Can you buy verification on TikTok?
Yes and no. You can not buy verification if you’re not known enough. However, if you meet the requirements of TikTok, it’s possible to pay someone (from an agency or management with partner access), to submit you. If you meet the requirements, you will get the blue tick.
According to TikTok experts, there are different criteria at TikTok when they look at your profile to consider the verification. To get verified, you’ll have to meet the following requirements:
– Consistent growth: your account has to gain followers every day consistently
– Watch time growth: your account gets more views & watch time on the posted videos
– Media coverage: the user is featured in a lot of respected news sources, such as magazines, newspapers, TV shows & online magazines.
– Being verified on other platforms: this is not a requirement, but will help a lot. If you’re already verified on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, that will boost your online presence.
I don’t meet the requirements, what now?
Most of the people don’t meet the requirements. Which is not a shame, not a lot of people are famous. There’s a solution to that: buying a verified TikTok account. When you buy a verified TikTok account, you don’t have to meet the requirements. The amazing thing about buying a TikTok account with blue tick is; you can change the username without losing the verification badge. Unlike on other platforms where you lose you blue tick as soon as you change your username!
