Wouldn’t it be great if you could grow your audience and get more TikTok followers while letting your biggest competition and creators in your niche do all the hard work for you?

In this guide, I’m going to show you how you can ethically steal TikTok content ideas from your competition.

When you do this correctly, you will be leveraging data from other people’s hard work and reaping the benefits of having huge amounts of real TikTok followers even before you have them.


The Easiest Way To Let Other People Do The Work To Grow Your TikTok Followers

When I think of letting other people do the hard work for me while I reap the benefits, I think of working smarter instead of harder.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s all good to test ideas and I encourage doing so, but not as the foundation for your TikTok account.  In my article “The Best Way To Get TikTok Followers in 2020”, I mentioned that posting unique and outside the box content is one of the best ways to attract real and genuine TikTok followers. 

But, I just want you to know that you should constantly be researching what’s hot and working right now on the TikTok platform, so that you can use that as a base to build your TikTok following. 

As far as this guide goes, we’re going to be focusing on one thing:

Modeling What Other Popular TikTok Creators Are Doing

What we’re going to do is model other people’s content ideas with our own flavor.  Because, when you do this, you can pick and choose the hot and trending TikTok content ideas before you ever hit record on your camera.  It’s a lot better than taking an idea, creating the content, and testing it just to find out nobody cares.

And since you’re going to create the content with your own uniqueness, you will not be copying anybody.  The last thing you want to do is copy and paste other people’s content, but modeling what they’ve done and putting it in your own style is the best way to take trending and viral TikTok ideas and transform them into your own viral content.

Remember… The most valuable resource to grow your TikTok is data.  When you have a lot of feedback from your target audience, you can give them what they want faster and easier.

It’s a win for everybody since you’re going to be giving them content they like more frequently instead of trying a bunch of stuff that might not even work.  Your audience will appreciate you for that and you owe it to them to produce what they want.  If you don’t, you won’t have an audience at all.


The Best Way To Model TikTok Creators Content

The formula for modeling TikTok content is pretty simple (and common sense), really…

Before we begin, I recommend using your desktop or laptop computer.  It will make this process a lot easier and quicker to get done.

1. First off, what you want to do is make a list of your “dream 100” accounts.  A dream 100 (an idea by Russell Brunson) is essentially a list of 100 people, in your case, “creators”, in the same niche you’re in and that you aspire to be like.  

Ideally, you want to create a Google Sheet that has their TikTok username with a link to their profile.  That way you can quickly go down your dream 100 list and note any content you see that meets the criteria.

Another reason to find your dream 100 is because when you start using a TikTok bot, you will already have a list of users that you know have the same type of followers that you want to target.

But, as far as this guide is concerned, your dream 100 will be your literal cheat sheet when it comes to finding the best ideas, inspiration, and motivation to create your own content.

2. Once you have your dream 100 list, what you want to do is start going down that list one by one looking for content that has a high engagement ratio.  As far as I know, there are no analyzer tools for TikTok that can do that for you at the moment.  If that changes, I’ll be sure to update this article.

Don’t use emotion to pick what kind of content you want to model, stick with concrete numbers.  It’s important to remember that we want to spend our time creating content that already has the viral potential. 

Remember: Just because a video goes viral for another TikTok creator does not mean that it will yield the same results for you.

At this point you just need to focus on going down your dream 100 list until you have enough content ideas for yourself to create.

How To Use a TikTok Downloader To Download Images Without Watermark

This is the last step of this guide.  The reason you want to use a downloader like besttiktokdownloader.com is because you have to store the ideas you want to model, so that you can come back to one place (file explorer) and revisit them before you set out on recording your TikTok content.

At the end of the day, you don’t technically have to do this, but don’t be lazy.  It’s best practice to have the content because I can promise that you’ll forget the video and then end up recording something completely different which means all your hard work went in the trash.  Don’t be that guy (or gal).  

Plus, in our guide “How To Upload Other People’s Content And Get More TikTok Followers”, where we teach you how to use other people’s content legally … You’re going to need to use the TikTok downloader.

All you have to do is find a TikTok video that you like, grab the link, and go to the TikTok downloader of your choice… Put the link in, and hit download.  Literally that simple.
