Janice Miller on TikTok – Becoming an Influencer
Hopefully, we’ve all heard about TikTok by now. TikTok is a short-form, video-sharing app that allows users to create and share 15 seconds to 3-minute videos, on any topic. Some people create original content, others lip-sync, and others educate. There are over 11 million users over the age of 50 on the platform. Most of those simply watch videos on the platform.
Janice Miller is one of those 50 million users. Janice doesn’t just watch though. She creates! I’ve watched funny videos, as well as videos about her husband Larry. Larry has been dealing with some health issues and Janice keeps their close to 56k followers updated. Every time I see a video of hers, it brings a smile to my face.
When asked if she has any paid sponsorships, she said no. She told me occasionally a company will send her some products, and if she likes the products, she may create a video about them. As far as taking on actual “paid sponsorships, or doing the Amazon thing”, she told me she doesn’t need another job and that taking on projects like that would basically entail that.
She goes on to tell me that TikTok has become a family to her. People that connect to her and follow her have become important to her and Larry both and they don’t want to give that up.
We often hear/see from the younger generation, “You’re too old for TikTok!” – tell that to the 11 million other people aged 50+ that are actively engaging on the platform!
