It is critical to provide consistent, engaging content. It takes time as well. Creating content can take a long time and leave you feeling overwhelmed. But if you want to know how to make your TikTok workflow easier and less stressful, we’ve got you covered! This article will provide you with several simple TikTok hacks. But first, consider the value TikTok provides, particularly in this video-first social media world.

TikTok is currently the most popular video-based social media platform available. It’s entertaining and simple, and the algorithm has proven to be effective in getting content in front of people regardless of follower count. Learning yet another social media tool may be too much for some. TikTok, on the other hand, is extremely simple and enjoyable to use.

These are 5 tiktok hacks you should know:

  • When is the best time to post on TikTok?

According to The American Marketing Association, evaluating your top performing posts and identifying trends is one way to determine the best time to post your content to your audience. You can also look at your competitors’ top performing posts and see when they are posted. So, while there are “best” times to post, make sure to post when it is most beneficial to your audience! While there are popular times to post on TikTok, post guidelines, like all social media profiles, are just that – guidelines. To be successful, you must not only understand when your target audience is most active on TikTok, but you must also ensure that your content is engaging. That being said, let’s take a look at some of the busiest times to post.

One organization examined 100,000 TikToks and discovered that the best times to post were as early as 2am on Tuesdays and as late as 11pm on Wednesdays. Another organization limited it to Thursdays at 7 p.m.

  • Making a Playlist of Your Favorite Videos

To add a video to an existing playlist, click the three dots in the upper right corner of the video and select Add to Playlist. Just as simple as adding a video to a playlist, you can remove it by clicking the same three dots and selecting “remove from playlist.”

Organizing TikTok videos into categories is an excellent way to curate content based on themes/topics and make it easily accessible. Most TikTok users with at least 10 followers can access creator playlists. To make a playlist, go to the “Video” tab. Then click the “Sort videos into playlists” button. After you’ve made your first playlist, click the “+” button to make more. You can name the playlist and add public videos to it.

Creating playlists that correspond to your content buckets is an excellent way to maintain a collection of inspiring content that you can incorporate into your overall social media video strategy.

  • Including Audio Captions in Videos

To add auto captions to a video while editing it, go to the video editing screen and tap on “Captions” on the right side of the screen. If you are using them for the first time, you must opt-in. The audio is then automatically transcribed. What’s really cool is that you can edit the captions before they appear on the video. Make a point of saving the video with captions.

There are numerous reasons why having audio captions on your videos makes sense. For instance, not everyone watches videos with the sound turned on, and not everyone can hear video sound. Captioning your videos is a simple way to make them more accessible.

  • Starting a Conversation with Video Comments

You may comment and then change your mind, or you may receive a comment that you wish to delete. You can delete comments you’ve made by pressing the same comment icon you used to comment on the video and then selecting delete. If you want to delete a comment that someone else left on your video, go to the comment icon, click and hold the comment you want to delete, and then go to “manage multiple comments,” where you can delete it.

You can allow everyone to comment on your videos, only friends and followers, or no one at all. However, continuing to comment is a great way to connect with your audience and get more out of your videos. Sure, you may not want a conversation on every post, and TikTok anticipated this. You can enable or disable comments for each video.

If someone else’s video has commenting enabled, you will see a comment icon on the right side of the video. Click it, type your comment, and hit the send button.

  • Choosing and Saving Video Sounds

Sounds are an important part of TikToks, and you should include them in at least some of your videos. By going to the editing screen, you can add sounds to recorded videos you’ve uploaded as well as videos you record in the app. No worries if you discovered a sound but do not yet have the video ready! To save the sound, bookmark it.


It’s important to carefully organize and plan your contents ahead of time before posting it on Tiktok. Sure, it may not be a viral video everyday and there’s no guarantee that it may blow up as soon as you posted it. But, as a content creator, consistent positing, engaging, and use of sounds and right hashtag may help you featured on the ‘’For you’’ page, and your video will be discovered by millions of people.
