How to Make Your Own TikTok Sound Go Viral?

If you want to make your audio go viral on TikTok, the following tips can help:

1. Be unique

As mentioned earlier, your primary concern to TikTok should focus on uniqueness. When you're creating sounds, think about what only you can bring. That's what people will want to share.

The name of the game in TikTok is shareability. And anything you can do to make your videos shine, such as featuring a one-of-a-kind sound, will go a long way for you to get you more views.

2. Keep it short and loop

According to TikTok's algorithm, if someone watches your videos many times, they are more likely to be shown in your next video. A great way to get multiple views is keeping your TikTok videos short and loop. If you make your videos or audio loop seamlessly, people may not even realize that the video has been over and has started over again, then they will keep watching.

The same goes for your sound. If you create a sound that loops when people add it to their videos, their followers will watch those videos multiple times.

3. Make it inconspicuous

Suppose you want the audience to pay attention to your video's content and not to the inconsistency of your audio. So make sure to record clean sound with minimal background noise. It definitely helps in making your video go viral.
