You can collaborate with influencers on any form of TikTok video or even commission them to make a video for your company.
On almost every social media site, including TikTok, tutorial videos are prevalent. TikTok tutorials, on the other hand, are less informative and often self-explanatory due to the short-form nature of the images.
This means you can create a simple tutorial that demonstrates all of a method’s steps without making any comments. To fit a tutorial into the time limit, you can also fast-forward the entire film.

Don’t worry if you can’t cook; you can still share videos of the food you eat.

Though not as popular as Instagram or Facebook, TikTok live videos have a lot of potentials that you should tap into.
Hopefully, these 21 different types of TikTok videos have provided you with the motivation you need to create good content for the website. You should not, however, restrict yourself to specific types of images.
