As a tiktoker, knowing how to put words on your video clips multiple times is an awesome way to increase audience retention.

That is why several content creators are looking for a process on how to put text on their TikTok videos at different times.

To add text simultaneously to your TikTok videos, you must use the “Aa: Text” element after selecting your video, type your words and adjust the words to suit the flow.

I know this might surprise you as you are looking for something more detailed.

Anyway, this guide will take you step by step on how to go about this as I will buttress more on this in this guide.

But before we move any further, we must check out some of the reasons why adding text multiple times matters a lot.


Why putting text in multiple times in your video matters

Let us get to the aspect where you must know your reasons for putting text in video clips.

1. For a perfect explanation

Adding texts to your clips makes your videos more explainable to the audience since sometimes, the clips might be speechless videos.

There are some videos on Tiktok that the Creator might not talk about in the video, but the viewers will be able to understand.

How is this possible? This is majorly through the use of words in the clip.

With this, the video clip will be explainable, and viewers can easily denote the message the Creator is trying to pass them.

2. To grow more engagement

Words in clips help grow more engagement on your videos and allow more shares.

A single word in a video can make someone decide to share it with their audience on WhatsApp and some other platforms.

This way, you easily get your video to go viral and start trending number #1 in the Tiktok chart.

Engagement in your video is one of the priorities you should focus on as a Creator. That is why including words is the best fit.

3. To flow with the demonstration

Some TikTok videos will only show the Creator demonstrating with their hands and vibing to the background track.

This is awesome, and you can also use this technique to grow a fanbase, but it won’t be very good if you don’t add text.

Try adding texts to the clip at different times and see the magic in your video clips.

Viewers can flow with your demonstration as you use your hand and head to create the flows.

4. To reach more target audience

Just from the text in your clip, the Tiktok algorithm can pick it up and send it straight to some set of viewers.

Once these viewers engage with the video and grow more curious about it by sharing it with their friends.

You will see your video reach more people and get straight to your target audience, who will turn into followers.

You only need a text on it to go viral and make you the talking point on Tiktok.
