Instagram Hacks We Learned From TikTok

8 months into a pandemic, you start to find new ways to entertain yourself. Rearranging furniture 27 times a week, learning how to make sourdough bread (and naming your starter), binge-watching every series on Netflix, and lastly, when the boredom really starts to set in, you go down the rabbit hole we call TikTok.


TikTok has gotten a bad rap as being just for teenagers or only a dance app. And for your high schooler, it may be just that, but once you download the app, you realize there is SO MUCH MORE.


TikTok offers a variety of thought leaders, influencers, and businesses that use the platform to network, inform, engage, and build their customer list. There are also some TikTokers that dedicate their accounts to teaching their followers tips and tricks for other social media platforms!

We’ve listed three of our favorite hacks below, keep scrolling and let us know if you try any of these!
