TikTok Launch Their Own BeReal

TikTok launched a new feature ‘TikTok Now’ where you receive a daily prompt to capture a 10 second video or static image. This outright cut and past of BeReal works exactly the same but as it can be seen on TikTok for your whole audience, it feels more likely to work to grow an audience or potentially get viral content, if the video or image you capture is unique e.g. performing at your gig.

It’s currently only available to US users but if they see success, we can see it being globally in the next few months.

If you are a US artist, we’d suggest trying it out. New features on any platform are always pushed out, so even if TikTok Now doesn’t last, you’ve at least taken advantage of it to help grow your audience further.

SoundCloud launched SoundCloud for Artists

SoundCloud for Artists is a platform similar to Spotify for Artists, where artists can see all things distribution, promotion, monetisation and more for their SoundCloud account.

This is especially useful for artists that use SoundCloud as their main streaming platform (producers, remixers, rappers)

With SoundCloud being one of the world’s largest communities of music creators (40 million), it’s worth jumping on if you’re not already.

TikTok Character Limit Increased for Captions

The character limit for video descriptions has increased from 300 to 2,200.

The update comes after the news that TikTok is increasingly becoming users’ go-to app for searches over other platforms such as Google and YouTube.

For artists, this means you should take more time on your captions, taking advantage of the character limit to ensure you’re using it to grip people in, increase chances of ranking for certain search terms and also represent your brand through your language.

Press Opportunity

Expired: Do you have a track you’re about to release or it’s JUST dropped?

TikTok extends video limit to 10 MINUTES

With TikTok now allowing videos up to 10minutes long, artists can be now using the platform for multiple forms of content.

Alongside short form content made specific for TikTok and Reels, artists can be researching longer form content perhaps made for YouTube onto TikTok e.g. music videos.

Tip to get more views - put your videos into parts. This will mean people go to your profile and view multiple videos, pushing you out further onto the FYP.
