With over a billion active users worldwide, TikTok is taking over. People can’t seem to get enough of the platform’s challenges and trending hashtags. Plus, its “For You” page makes finding the content you like a breeze. So, if you want to get onboard the TikTok train, you’ll need a handle that stands out. While you may have the perfect TikTok name in mind, it would be a good idea to check if the name is available on other platforms. Luckily, you can quickly check the availability of social media usernames using BrandSnag. BrandSnag’s Name Checker tool quickly tells you if the handle you want is available on TikTok and other social channels like YouTube, Twitch, and Instagram.
You have two options to check if the TikTok username you want is available. You can go through the long process of creating a TikTok account only to learn your favorite name is taken, or you can use BrandSnag.
With BrandSnag’s Name Checker, you can find out quickly whether the handle you want is available. Plus, you can find out whether the name you want is free on multiple platforms. This will help you to make sure that all your social handles are the same.
TikTok offers a ton of entertaining content, but it’s best known for its challenges. Here’s a list of some of the challenges that have trended the most on TikTok:
Embarrassing clips of people’s lives and childhoods.
People driving getaway cars with their pets.
Opposites dancing together.
People spinning as if they were in a microwave.
Using the Clown filter to highlight embarrassing choices and clownish decisions.
Tell me you’re Blank without telling me Challenge.
While both TikTok and Snapchat offer video captures, they are very different platforms. TikTok is more about entertaining the masses, whereas Snapchat is more about keeping up with friends. However, you should still use the same username on both apps because these are both good places for building a following for your brand or business, and you want to be easily found on both.
It should go without saying that you need a unique TikTok name. You also want something memorable. So how do you create something unique and memorable? Start by thinking about the purpose of your account. What kind of content do you plan on creating? For example, if you’re going to post videos of yourself doing chores while dancing, you might want to consider a name like BoogieWoogieDusting.
Some other things you should think about when creating a TikTok handle are:
Using active verbs.
Using your nickname.
Adding prefixes like “The” “A,” or “An.”
Including a reference to a joke or meme.
If you don’t already have a username, BrandSnag helps you find one that’s available across all platforms. However, if you already have a name and it isn’t available on TikTok, you’ll need to be flexible. Instead of simply using your brand name as your username, you could add to it. So, for example, if your brand is Silver Fox and you own an app, you could be SilverFoxApp. You could also consider using only part of your name or using your brand’s initials.
