David Sharpe bio

Legendary Marketer client Vasiliy Lapitov is a full time computer engineer. He always had a desire to create multiple streams of income. He found a calling in  affiliate marketing because he likes that he is able to promote others products and doesn’t have to have his own product. He began affiliate marketing with blogging but because Google changed their algorithm to become more video based, he uses Tik Tok for his affiliate marketing platform. We recently interviewed him on our daily show Wake Up Legendary to hear how he uses Tik Tok to create good quality content to gain followers and traffic on his videos. 

Step 1- Create a Tik Tok account

The first step to using Tik Tok in affiliate marketing is to create an account. You can only create videos on a smartphone or tablet, so make sure you have one of those handy. Download the Tik Tok app and create an account. You can create an account using Facebook, Google, your phone number, your email, or your Apple ID. Tik Tok will ask you for your information like your birthday and email, and ask you to create a username and password. Once you’re done you’ll have successfully created a Tik Tok account. Then you’ll want to upload a profile photo and begin making your videos.

Step 2- Choose a niche

Once you’ve made a Tik Tok account, it’s time to choose your niche and what you want to make videos on. You can make videos about different topics relating to your niche. It’s important to stay on topic because it could become confusing to the viewer. Having a topic you are consistent with helps keep the viewers attention. Keep the same consistent topic and keep it simple. When growing a channel, it’s important to keep good consistency to keep viewers engaged so they can recognize you for it. 

Step 3- Have a consistent setting

Vasiliy’s Tik Tok didn’t take off at first. He had to try different approaches with his videos to see what worked for him and what brought in more views and likes. He was motivated to get a jump on his Tik Tok after watching another Wake Up Legendary interview with another client. He found that consistency was key.

Vasiliy began wearing the same clothes in every Tik Tok with the same background. This creates consistency for the viewer because then they get used to what you are wearing and where you are and are able to recognize a Tik Tok from you. Because of the consistency the viewer is more likely to watch the video because they already know who you are. The consistency creates better quality, and in turn, creates better results.

Step 4- Use props

The two videos on Vasiliy’s Tik Tok that first went viral used props such as lottery tickets and hundred dollar bills. He’s found that viewers are more interested when they see a prop in a video because it attracts their eyes to the video. The Tik Tok doesn’t have to have fancy cars or fancy houses to keep the viewer engaged. Just a simple prop like a hundred dollar bill will catch someone’s attention while also making it easier for you to create the video because a lot less effort goes into making a Tik Tok with simple props rather than bigger more expensive props.

Vasiliy says it’s important to re-access your mental state. When doing any type of affiliate marketing, it comes with ups and downs. There will be trial and error using Tik Tok especially. He says it’s very important to know why you’re creating an online business. “When you have those dips, those downs this is where you wanna go back to your why and ask ‘why are you doing this?’ ‘what is your biggest why?,” Vasiliy said. Through the Wake Up Legendary show you can find more of a ‘why’ and become more inspired through other’s real life stories, just like he did. We stream our show live 5 days a week on our Facebook page. You can text WUL to (813) 296-8553 for text message reminders when we go live.


Vasiliy says he wasn’t always comfortable with being on camera and he’s had to learn a lot when it comes to creating Tik Tok videos. Using Tik tok has helped him grow as a person and has elevated his mindset. He says that knowing why you’re creating your online business and keeping that in mind will help you to move forward and continue to bring you results and make you successful long term.
