Look What Happened on TikTok

I jumped into TikTok! 

Alright by all admission I have a pen name here in Indonesia that I publish my books under. No, I cannot say it as it is a secret. However, I have been struggling with my TikTok account and I only have a few hundred followers.  

However, over the weekend I launched my very own, very personal TikTok content so feel free to click on it and see for yourself. I posted a few videos and then I posted the one I wanted to.  

The one I wanted to post had to wait so it was not the only post in my eyes.  

What did I post? 

Well, I posted content about wanting to help local businesses. I posted a 30-second video and in a matter of two days, I have over 55 thousand views. Needless to say, it went a little crazy and way beyond what I was expecting.  

But that was not the end of it. I have had hundreds of shares and nearly a thousand comments. The post went crazy and I neared 3000 followers in a matter of two days.  

This was the desired effect. Except I was not ready to answer the comments and the posts. I was not ready for my phone to blow up. I had to turn off the notifications because It was going insane. I was trying hard to like and respond to every post but it was impossible. 

What is the goal? 

The goal is to create content for free for small businesses. To have the free giveaways sponsored by larger companies as a form of advertising seems to be working.  

I have had several people reach out to me wanting to not only sponsor but giveaway cash to locals I bump into. It had been very overwhelming and honestly, I am not prepared. I found myself glued to my phone all day trying hard to keep up with messages and likes. Many of them spilled over into my Instagram and messaged me there as well. 

What’s next? 

First of all, I found out that a foreigner who speaks the Indonesian language is a hit. I didn’t know this before but here we are. Thus, I am working on a business plan as we speak so that I may harness the power of TikTok and use it to help the needy and help local businesses.  

As for what’s next? I may need at least one staff to help out and book appointments as well as follow up on all the messages pouring in on both TikTok and Instagram. Let’s see how the next week pans out and how we can help the smaller local businesses.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.

    1. Thanks. Oh gosh. I have had thousands of messages. We are putting a small team together to be able to actually help. I thought I would get a view or two and a few messages. I am so overwhelmed.
