Want to improve your social media presence and grow your following quickly and efficiently? Going live on TikTok – as with most social media platforms – is one of the best ways to engage with your followers in real time and get your face (or brand) circulating on the platform.

When you go live on TikTok, you open up a completely different side of social media. Going live gives way to a more spontaneous way to create content that static posts or videos can’t compete with. It allows your followers to ask you questions and, well, interact with you virtually. The raw and unedited content allows your followers to get to know you a little better and in turn gives you the opportunity to interact with and understand your audience better.

While going live on TikTok may seem a little intimidating at first, it’s worth considering if you want to connect with your followers on a deeper level. Here’s everything you need to know to go live on TikTok, no matter how many followers you have.

How to go live on TikTok

Going live on TikTok is relatively easy if you already have live streaming capabilities. All you need to do is press the “create” icon on the TikTok home screen (the plus sign button) and swipe all the way to the left to the “live” button. From there, you will be prompted to select a cover image and title for your upcoming live stream. Keep in mind that the image and title are the first thing your followers see, so you need to make sure it’s captivating enough to get people to click.

Once you’ve selected your image and caption and you’re ready to go live, you’ll want to hit the “go live” button. TikTok counts you down from three and you are officially live. When you’re ready to end the live stream, all you have to do is press the “x” button in the top left corner of your screen.

How many followers do you need to go live on TikTok?

This is where things can get a little tricky for some TikTok users. Unfortunately, TikTok doesn’t currently grant live streaming privileges to just anyone, and there are a few conditions you need to meet if you want to go live in the app. That said, it’s not that hard to meet the requirements if you’re a regular TikTok user working on building your following and engagement.

To go live on TikTok, you must technically must have at least 1,000 followers (more on that later). It is also important to note that TikTok does not allow minors to livestream. Point. TikTok users must be at least 16 years old to press the live button.

How to go live on TikTok with less than 1,000 followers

Technically, TikTok requires users to have a minimum of 1,000 followers to start a live stream. However, don’t let that discourage you. If the thought of working your way to 1,000 followers on TikTok seems like a daunting task, there may be another workaround that allows you to get around the rules (or so we heard).

Keep in mind that this hack is not endorsed by TikTok, but it has been proven to work for some users. The live streaming hack involves submitting a support ticket claiming that you had access to live streaming and requesting that it be restored to your account.

You can submit a support ticket by clicking the menu button in the top right corner of your screen. From there, you’ll want to hit the “settings and privacy” button, scroll down and hit “report a problem.” Click “I can’t start LIVE” and follow the prompts to fill out a report. After submitting the report, you’ll have to wait a few minutes to a few days to find out whether or not you’re getting livestream privileges.

If the hack doesn’t work, consider working on increasing your following to get live streaming rights organically.
