Dropshipping is like affiliate marketing, but in dropshipping, you own your product, which means you don’t need to refer people to earn money. You get to decide the price of your product, it’s like owning a company. In dropshipping, you can host your products on a hosting platform, or you can create your website. Although most people use ready hosted platforms like Shopify because it’s easy to manage, others create their own website.

Drag your followers to other platforms

If you’re already on ticktock and you’re making videos, starting a YouTube channel should not be a big deal. If you have a good amount of ticktock followers, drag them to your YouTube channel and other social media platforms you want.

If you manage to get those chunks of followers to your YouTube channel, you could literally qualify for monetization in months. While other creators start YouTube channels from scratch, you already have followers from ticktock watching and subscribing to your videos. You will then have a presence in two hefty social media platforms and earn from both, well, did you think of that? I bet you didn’t. So that’s my hack for you (sweet).

After all said, getting an online presence means you have to be serious, by serious I mean being consistent.  So yeah, that’s all you need to know about earning through your ticktock account, and don’t forget the hack (very important).
