Last month, I decided to start a TikTok account to talk about books I’ve been reading.

After two full weeks of uploading different types of content and three viral videos, I realized that I couldn’t monetize that account because I made it in the Dominican Republic a few years ago (a country where the partner program does not yet exist).

So, I decided to open a second account in the United States (where I can legally monetize) and start from scratch.

One of the things that discouraged me most was that on the first account, I had already built a small community and had achieved more than 100,000 views in those 15 days.

But what I didn’t expect is that in this second account, I would manage to not only surpass the views of the first account (currently, I have 140,000 views, 1300 comments, and around 7 viral posts) but also reach 1000 followers in just ten days (those are the minimum requirements that you need to apply for monetization in this app).
