Create Mobile Application like TikTok

The most notable TikTok features overview

Five steps to develop an app like TikTok

1. Research your target market

  • Demographic profile. You need to learn the average age of your users, where they live, what devices they use, and so on.
  • Behavioral trends. Such trends include decreasing the user’s desire to download something, rapidly decreasing patience for slow loading times, low tolerance for lack of security, high value on the app utility, and so on.

2. Choose the monetization model

  • Fundraising
  • In-app purchase
  • Advertising
  • Cost Per Click charged each time the user interacts with the ads in their app.
  • Cost Per Mille charged advertisers for every 1,000 impressions of their ad run the app
  • Cost Per Action when advertisers pay only for the specified action, such as an app install or newsletter signup

3. Cooperate with the app development team

  • Define the project scope, main features of the future software, and business priorities;
  • Create an app development workflow, taking into account the monetization strategy;
  • Identify main app features and user roles;
  • Design a future app concept.

4. Create an MVP
