Are you a dropshipper looking to break into the lucrative USA market through TikTok? It might seem daunting, but it’s entirely possible, and I’m here to guide you through the journey. So buckle up, and let’s dive into the world of targeted social media marketing!
The Possibilities of TikTok Targeting
Yes, it’s feasible to target the United States on TikTok from other countries. Through rigorous research and personal experimentation, I’ve unearthed three methods that can help you achieve this goal. I’ve tried these myself, so rest assured, the advice comes from experience.
Method 1: The eSIM Strategy
Initially, I thought of using an eSIM to mimic having a US SIM card without the physical swap hassles. However, this hit a snag due to my iPhone’s compatibility issues. The takeaway? Always check your phone’s capabilities first.
Method 2: The Physical SIM Card Game-Changer
Switching to a physical US SIM card was the next step. It may sound complex, but the results speak for themselves. Before the switch, my viewership was largely Nordic. Post-SIM change? A whopping 99% viewership from the USA!
👉 How-To Step-by-Step:
- Order a US SIM card (I found mine on Amazon.de for convenience in Europe).
- Activate the SIM on the provider’s website.
- Swap out your regular SIM card.
- Delete TikTok and any VPN apps (like NordVPN).
- Set your phone’s language to English and turn off location settings.
- Reinstall NordVPN, connect to a US server, and then download TikTok.
- Use your existing TikTok account to avoid shadowbanning issues.
🎁 Bonus Tip: With a US SIM, I unlocked additional TikTok text-to-speech voices and effects – a neat little perk!
Method 3: The Proxy Account Creation
The simplest method? Have someone in the US create a TikTok account for you. The theory is that TikTok targets the account’s origin country, not the current location. While untested by me, it’s worth a shot if you can find a US-based friend or hire someone to do it.
