General questions

Does posting to TikTok via PromoRepublic impact my impressions?

  • No. The community guidelines on TikTok regarding unoriginal content do not extend to the content shared on TikTok through third-party partners, such as PromoRepublic. It's crucial to understand that the term "unoriginal content" does not encompass all content created outside of TikTok. The guideline specifically pertains to content that was originally created on a different platform or source and subsequently shared on TikTok.

Is there the option to select the audio you want when posting? Or does it need to be a video with sound already on it?

  • The sound must be a part of the video prior to posting through PromoRepublic.

How do I add subtitles or closed captioning to my TikTok videos in PromoRepublic?

  • Make sure that you add subtitles or closed captioning through TikTok's video editor before uploading the video to PromoRepublic.
