Here are the answers;

TikTok has become the platform a diverse group of people uses to promote themselves, including doctors, designers, architects, and others.

2. Review others' products

Millions of viewers will want to listen to what you think of a certain product or service once they trust that you give them honest reviews that help them identify the pros and cons of something they are about to spend money on.

If you are a fan of shopping, dining, or traveling, make sure you give short, honest, and practical reviews of the things you are most fond of. People will thank you as long as your videos helped them make a great deal or avoid a terrible one.

Once you are trusted reviewers also known as influencers, you grow your chances of being hired by different businesses to promote their products and services, this is another way of how you can make money on TikTok.

If you focus your reviews on fashion, food, or travel experiences, not only will you get to do a lot of these for no cost, but you will also be paid for it.
