[10:08] SOME ADVICE FOR FILMING REELS/TIKTOKS
You don’t have to dance! There are all types of content you can create on the platform.
Lighting is key. Find great natural lighting or a ring light. Light should be shining on your face, not behind you—you don’t want to be backlit.
Have multiple outfits prepared when you’re shooting content. This gives the impression that you’ve filmed over several days and gives visual diversity to your feed.
Pick a day of the week to batch your content, and commit to it!
Carve out specific time to edit.
Use a mixture of original content and trends.
All trending content starts in TikTok—start there.
Repurpose your content across social media platforms.
