Social Media Verification (Whether it is for TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, SnapChat, Twitter etc. ) is just a way social media platforms recognize important influencers, businesses, institutions, entertainers etc. as being legitimate and authentic. It helps the public to trust content more and not to be vulnerable to share, believe or take seriously content from fake profiles. It is not a “truth” service in the sense that it verifies the information someone shares. It does not endorse any information at all – but rather the authenticity of a certain profile that shares information.
In their own words: “A verified badge means that TikTok has confirmed the account belongs to the user it represents. It appears next to a TikTok user’s account name in search results and on the profile as a visible blue check mark.” (TikTok official website)
Our customer data suggests that anywhere between 8 and 12 news articles are sufficient for TikTok accounts where the account holders qualify for verification.
We therefore sell a basic PR package at $1800 that provides our clients with 8 unique articles on different news sites.
Naturally, since PR and visibility also drives revenue for most businesses and influencers, you can exceed this and talk to us about more powerful news sites and more posts for larger budgets too.
Firstly you should know that users cannot “apply” for TikTok verification. The platform uses algorithms to detect your popularity and will automatically invite you to be verified – or “award it’s verification to you”.
Officially, TikTok states that all the factors they will consider when making the decision, includes authenticity, uniqueness, user active, compliance with community guidelines.
Accounts can either be verified as “celebrities” or famous people, famous TikTok creators, or businesses / enterprises.
We work with several influencers who started by buying TikTok followers. Various services exist: some have genuine followers and others have bots. It is hard for an outsider to tell the difference.
It will help you with verification if these followers are real and share or like your content, but fake bot followers who cannot engage with content – will do nothing to affect your verification.
Conclusion: You can buy TikTok followers, but it will only help if they are real users.
TikTok is said to have announced a $200M fund a year ago. More recently it promised that fund will grow to $1Billion in 3 years. This is to pay content creators.
There is no transparent guidelines on how they will be sharing this revenue and content creators are advised to liaise with the company directly especially concerning content of value.
Over the years, we have worked with many influencers to improve their social presence. For example our lightroom presets were used by thousands of influencers to improve their brands, we helped with notability to increase chances of verification etc. The one thing we have seen, is that the market is rather dynamic. As for TikTok: watch this space as they seek to do a better job than Facebook in taking over the world.
Fake accounts are a HUGE problem on TikTok. Currently they do not require identify verification to new users who sign up. This is why having a verified, official account can help on a platform like this.
You may buy this service and still lack account activity or other areas and not receive an invitation.
Remember the following:
This service is for people with more than 5000 followers.
Ways to gain more followers:
You should only order this verification support service once your follower count exceeds 5000.
We are not cheating the system. You need to have a genuine and active TikTok account. If the only missing ingredient in your opinion is PR – and you have less than 8 Google News indexed articles, you are our ideal client.
If you are unknown on TikTok with low follower levels – this service will not help.
When it comes to verification: The exact same PR used for Instagram works for TikTok.
It is however imperative to note that their processes differ: users can apply to Instagram for verification, but TikTok will find users themselves who they believe meet their criteria.
There is no such thing as “Guaranteed TikTok Verification”, in fact such a promise would be a scam.
We are clear that we provide a PR service to assist you with notability. Regardless of the final decision of TikTok, we charge a set fee for a set number of successful PR publications.
In working with various influencers, it has become clear that TikTok verified users with as little as 2K followers – and some with 100K, 1M etc.
There is thus no specific guidelines and the company genuinely exercises it’s ability to deal with this on a case-by-case basis.
Someone with 2K followers a a IMDB Profile, or Wikipedia profile and several news articles may be verified, whereas another user with 50K followers may not be verified.
We deliver our PR support, beginning to completion, in 7 days.
The inference that you have a higher chance of TikTok verification when a reliable “media agency portal” is used, is nothing but a sales ploy.
Media agencies cannot convince TikTok to verify you so no need to fall for such a trap.
All you need, is to be genuine, have a following and be active, and be notable in the press. Social media platforms simply want to mirror the real world.
This is a PR service. No matter your situation, we will help you strategize valid and authentic reasons to be in the news – and work with our partners in the industry to take care of:

The explosive growth of TikTok and the fact that it has the upper hand over other platforms when it comes to accessing the Chinese consumer market, have celebrities, businesses and influencers from all over the world interested.

Whatever your reasons for seeking TikTok verification, below is what you should know:
There is no “procedure” with TikTok. They simply seek to represent what is happening in the real world. So if you are active, have reasonable follower levels – and is seen as validated by the media, the platform is interested in verifying you. We have explained a lot about this in the FAQ’s above.
Next step – getting your PR fixed so that you can be notable: A combination of things can help TikTok to notice you and move ahead with verification. It could be 10 news articles, or 6 news articles and 1 Wikipedia page, or even 1 Wikipedia page, 2 news articles and an Amazon author account. The point is that various combinations of notability have worked with TikTok.
Is it mandatory to have a Wikipedia page or Amazon book in my name? No! You don’t need either. In the case of Twitter Verification, Wikipedia is more important yes, but we have seen many TikTokkers verified simply by having followers, activity and notability in the press.
If you meet the other standard requirements and simply need PR to have several Google News results as legitimate news appearances – we can assist, whatever your case.
We helped more celebrities and influencers obtain verification than any other PR platform!
