“Musers”, Musical.ly USERS, are all out for the same thing – followers and likes; but ultimately they are looking to create a featured video and earn a Crown. Musical.ly selects the featured videos and they appear on the Featured Feed. The Featured Feed is viewed by all musers. Those videos earn their creators additional likes and fans, which in turn leads to the coveted ‘Crown’.
A Crown is what musical.ly uses to authenticate a user’s profile. Crowns are earned when the musical.ly panel verifies your account and deems your video as outstanding. With over 130 million users uploading 12 million videos a day, it is no simple task to attain this attention.
Fame is one way to earn a Crown. While the number of likes, fans, or features you have are some of the factors that lead to a Crown, musical.ly is also looking for creative, meaningful, and interesting content. Engaging your followers and others in the musical.ly community is another way to gain attention and earn a crown.
When selecting your music from the musical.ly library, you may be better served choosing less popular tunes. Songs with fewer videos betters the chances of your video being listed at the top of the leader board for those songs. That doesn’t mean you should select music you hate, but maybe look at some of the great, songs your favorite artist has that haven’t hit number one yet.
