Having your artist profile verified on any social network is of vital importance to give credibility to your artistic brand and achieve greater engagement. Fans want to know whether or not they’re contacting their real idol. In TikTok, however, it’s not exactly easy to get verified. There are some requirements that have to be met.
1- Daily growth: The account must grow steadily between 500 and 2000 followers daily.
2-Growth in viewing time: Average viewing time and account plays must be increasing.
3-Media coverage: If the account appears in the press, you will have a better consideration.
4-Viral content: Any account that consistently creates viral content can be considered for verification.
5-Verification on other platforms: Accounts with the same name on other platforms that are already verified will be verified faster.
The main drawback is that one cannot ask to be verified and wait for the verdict as in other platforms, but it is the platform itself that selects which accounts it verifies. The only thing you can do is try to meet the requirements of the platform as best as possible to get TikTok’s attention by constantly creating viral content and getting verification on other platforms.
