Nicol’s Question or Topic
Nicol is an aspiring musician from India and is currently studying in Canada. Gary’s content inspired him to create a TikTok account and so far, he has made over 200 videos. However, despite producing a lot of videos, his followers are still at 35. So he asked Gary for strategic advice on how to boost his audience.
Aside from making content on TikTok, Nicol also tried flipping stuff and has been seeing good results for the past three months. However, he is somehow confused if flipping is for him as he is not enjoying it as much as making music.
Gary’s Story and Advices
If Nicol has 200 videos right now and only has 35 followers, then that means he’s not good at TikTok yet. Gary highly suggests that on his next 5 videos, he do something that is completely different from the current content that he’s doing. Gary also asked him to watch 100 different content on TikTok and leave a comment on each of them. Chances are, three of his replies could go viral and will double his audience in one day.
On Nicol’s flipping side hustle:
Based on their conversation, Gary knows that Nicol doesn’t enjoy flipping stuff. Although he’s happy that Nicol tried it, he suggests that Nicol stop it or change the items he’s flipping. If Nicol chooses the latter, what he can do is to source the items on the internet and have it shipped to him so that he can maximize his time.
