Switching from Instagram & Facebook 👉 TikTok
TikTok has really evolved, there is more to it than just trendy dances performed by teen audiences nowadays.

I think TikTok proved the complete opposite.
Freelancers and pretty much any professional can actually make a good business and promote it via TikTok. We can now see that companies like Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook are following TikTok’s steps and are transitioning to become video-based platforms at their core.
We have a few articles on everything you need to know about TikTok and how you can leverage using that platform:

Will Davies - Music Producer/Mixing Engineer
From as far back as I can remember I have had a strong affinity towards music, the elation it has brought to my life has inspired my actions to this day, I have always played in bands which has brought the reality of both the highs and the lows of what comes within the industry, and invaluable experience that I wish to take inside and out of the studio. My Current practice today consists of working with individual projects at my studio “bungalow studios” and I also work at River Studios, Southampton where I work either in private studio sessions or sessions to local community-based projects, bringing the experience of music to young people. Various personal accolades include Playing at The Viper Room, LA Winner Firestone UK battle of the bands Performed at the UEFA champions league final day Music Production & Engineering Masters Graduate at USW Over 250,000 streams on Spotify.
