Ok, it’s no secret that TikTok followers are incredibly hard to come by. Especially once you get past your friends and family. Getting strangers to follow you on the social media app takes hard work and a lot of patience. To meet this demand, a number of sites have popped up that claim to boost your follower count.
One such site is TikTok Mix.com. But how legit is it? Should you trust it? Here is everything you need to know about it.
What is TikTok Mix.com
TikTok Mix.com is a website that offers TikTok creators what they dream of; up to 50,000 followers. The site claims to be able to hack the TikTok database to secretly add the followers to your account.
This is not the first website to offer such services. In fact, ever so often, new websites pop up that claim to do almost the exact same thing. It looks like these sites are preying on people’s troubles by giving them a quick solution. A lot of time and effort goes into creating an organic followers base, so naturally, people are attracted by tales of free followers when they hear them.
TikTok Mix.com claims to be able to add up to 50,000 followers within a span of five minutes. The site even offers you a choice between 1000, 5000, 10000, 25000, and 50000 followers. Although, why anyone would opt for fewer followers, doesn’t really make sense. The main kicker is that the website offers all its services for free! But how legit is that claim? And will they even deliver on their promise? Let’s find out.
Is TikTok Mix.com legit?
Well, no. TikTok Mix.com does not look very legit as far as we can tell. In fact, it seems to emulate just about every single website that claims to offer free followers (it’s weird). Neither does the site deliver on its promise, nor is the site itself safe. Our antivirus picked up sixteen trackers on the website. Of course, this is not uncommon, but in this case, the website is empty, and simply redirects you to use it on a phone instead.
When you access the site on a phone browser, you are asked to input your TikTok username. There is no option to confirm that it actually is your account, which immediately raises red flags.
As great as it would be, nothing is for free
TikTok Mix.com does not deliver on its promise of free followers. In fact, it does not deliver anything. We went ahead and gave it a try so that you don’t have to. Here is what we found when we accessed the website from a mobile browser.
As soon as the site loads there is an option to input your username and the number of followers you would like. There is no option to input your password (luckily) or to verify the account that you would like to hack.
Once you do that, a lot of fanfare ensues of the website attempting to ‘hack’ the TikTok user base. It then shows you that the website is transferring your followers. But suddenly, oops, the server is overloaded and you have to ‘manually’ add the followers by taking a few surveys.
However, no matter how many surveys you take, they just keep telling you to take more.
Should you risk it?
Well, we wouldn’t get our hopes up. There is no ‘secret hack’ to get free followers on TikTok. While some sites do in fact sell followers, these are always bots and not organic followers. Bot followers never interact with your content. Besides, you run the huge risk of getting your account shadowbanned, since it goes against TikTok’s Community Guidelines.
The best thing to do is to slowly build your follower base with organic followers. This not only ensures the safety of your account, but it will also increase your visibility on the app.
How to increase your follower count on TikTok
Here are some tips to increase your follower count on TikTok.
Be consistent in terms of content: You TikTok followers follow you for your own personal brand of content. Consistency in your content is a great way to build your followers
Don’t leave gaps: People stay on the TikTok app for hours a day. This means that they need new content to watch continuously. So why not give the audience what it needs right? If you leave too long a gap between your posts, you run the risk of your followers unfollowing you.
Use relative hashtags: Like Instagram, hashtags act as search engines on TikTok, helping users compile a list of similar content. Using relative hashtags will help your content appear for the users that are actually looking for similar content. This increases your chances of getting more followers.
Promote cross-platform: If you have accounts on different social media platforms (like every person in the world), you can promote your TikTok account by posting on them. TikTok even lets you link your Instagram account to directly post content there!
