TikTok for Non TikTokers (WBC 3/20/24)

Gen-Z’s favorite social media platform has become a place where people of all ages and backgrounds come together. And it has a track record of making small businesses go viral, seemingly overnight. In other words, it’s the perfect place for you to connect with your customers and promote your work—if you know where to start. In this workshop, we’ll go through the basics of how TikTok works, what kinds of posts you can make on the platform, and how to set up your page for success. We’ll brainstorm ideas for each other together, so you will leave with your first followers and plenty of inspiration to get your page off the ground running. You don’t need any prior knowledge of TikTok—just an open mind! We’ll help you figure out the rest.
