Best time to go live on TikTok

If you want to build up your followers on TikTok, creating engaging live videos can help you connect with your community. But it’s important to go live consistently, and when your followers are most likely to be online. The best times to go live on TikTok are either in the early morning or late in the evening. According to data from SocialPilot, the best time to go live on TikTok is between 6-11 am or 7-11 pm. The best days of the week tend to be Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

These times are a good starting point but remember: the best time to go live on TikTok depends on your audience. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different times and days of the week. Look at your TikTok analytics to see how well your live videos perform and when the most people are tuning in.

Schedule TikTok streams in advance

Once you’ve pinpointed the best times to go live on TikTok, it can be a bit inconvenient sticking to that schedule all the time. If you want to keep your audience engaged but can’t live stream at your usual time for some reason, you can always record your video in advance, upload it and then schedule it to go live at your regular time with Restream’s Upload and Stream tool.

Restream is a live streaming software that lets you broadcast to multiple platforms simultaneously. It also lets you schedule pre-recorded videos to go live at the time that works best for your audience.

Your TikTok fans expect to see you at your usual times and you don’t want to let them down. You can upload a pre-recorded video in the following situations:

  • You want to re-broadcast your live stream at a later time so people in a different time zone can watch it “live” and use the live chat function.
  • You prefer to have a pre-recorded video play so that you can focus solely on interacting with viewers in the live chat.
  • You’re nervous about going live and want to share a polished video with no mistakes or hiccups. For more details on how to upload and stream a pre-recorded video with Restream, visit our help center.
