As a business owner, how you spend your time is your greatest asset. 

One of the best ways to get back your time is by using automation tools.

Automation tools can dramatically increase your output and eliminate repetitive tasks so you can focus on creating quality content.

This post covers 5 TikTok automation tools to help you set up a more successful business.

How Does TikTok Automation Work?

There are four main types of automation tools that can help grow your TikTok audience:

1. Growth Services - You can hire a team of marketers to manage your account, grow it, and do a lot of the heavy lifting. Every service is different but typically there will be a real person helping you with organic methods (not a bot).

2. TikTok Bots - TikTok bots let you automatically like, comment, follow, and unfollow specific people that might enjoy your content. You can often fully customize them based on your strategies and preferences. However, use at your own risk! 

3. TikTok Schedulers - A scheduler lets you prepare content ahead of time so you don't have to manually post anymore. You can upload your videos, schedule them for a future date, and then they will be auto-published. Schedulers are a great way to save time and post content consistently over the long haul.

4. Research Tools - Research tools can help you make smarter choices when you post, find information, and increase your organic reach. Examples include a hashtag tool to increase your reach or a database to find influencers to collaborate with.

These kinds of tools help people discover your account. Once they see you, it's their choice whether they follow you or not. To get great results, you must have an amazing account. 

Why Do You Need Automation Tools?

Automation tools take a weight off your shoulders and help you get more stuff done.

You could spend hours everyday liking and commenting on posts, researching hashtags, and doing repetitive tasks, but why would you want to?

Software is more efficient than you and can work 24 hours a day with no breaks. 

Therefore, you should leverage automation tools where it makes sense. They will help you in many ways such as:

  • Let you focus on what's really important: creating awesome content and building your brand
  • Increase how much work you get done
  • Help you be more consistent
  • Go viral more often
  • Grow faster than your competition 
  • Speed up your success

Automation tools ultimately help you get better results and become successful faster. However, they only work if you are posting amazing content so keep that in mind.  

Now, let's take a look at some of the best TikTok tools available right now.
