Marketing Your Social Media Business: A Conversation About Tiktok, Virality & Vanity Metrics with Wave Wyld

In our current podcast series, I interview the owners of 4 very different social media businesses and we dive deep into their marketing.

Today’s episode is the fourth and final of the series. I interview Wave Wyld, a TikTok Marketing Expert, based in Toronto, Canada.

Wave shares her approach to Tiktok marketing, which focuses on generating revenue for your business through the platform, not just boosting your vanity metrics.

And, make sure to visit the show notes for this episode below where I’ve included links to everything we talk about in this episode, including Wave’s free Facebook group and her guide to beating the TikTok algorithm.

“You do not need hundreds of thousands of followers or need to go viral to make money for your business on Tiktok.” – Wave Wyld
