Hi Kiana

if you are looking to promote yourself the best way to do it and acquire a larger audience is to stick with a product or interest, I'm not sure what your videos are all about, regardless competition on short videos whether these are on Tick Tock, Insta, Pinterest, YouTube or any other source is fierce, the best thing to do is to focus on one thing that will interest people, maybe your friends, and to associate with people who are in the same environment. for example if you are into makeup, cater to those who have that interest and join groups that talk about it, that way those people will be more interested in what you are doing or saying.
Know your product, what you are selling, how it works and what is the benefit for your customer or viewer, if you are selling yourself as a comedian for example, then know your audience, what they like, interact with them, be humble and most important know that you may be a deep influence on them so beware on your actions and how may these affect them, when you have a following it is extremely important to become a positive influence and have more fans vs. becoming a bad one and being forgotten ;-)
Hope this helps
All the best

Being a professional creative of any kind today requires working really, really hard to both generate new content constantly and promote what you've already got. (I was a successful freelance writer for several years before my current "normal" 9-5 role.) It is exhausting and difficult to fight through the noise, so you should be honest with yourself about whether or not that's what you really want to do and how you want to spend your time (versus just doing it for fun).
If you do want to monetize your creativity, my best advice is to find a focus-- find a market segment, a niche area of expertise-- and target it. Learn about SEO (search engine optimization), how tagging and metadata works on the platforms you're using, and find, follow, and, eventually, try to engage with different thought leaders or creative visionaries in your space that may have some influence. For me, that looked like being highly engaged on Twitter in different, very specific communities, doing a lot of free work (writing a lot of unpaid articles etc.) and building relationships with editors of industry publications so that my name would get out there as someone that was a good cybersecurity and national security writer. Last but not least, always remember to put your audience first: it's about what they want to see, not necessarily what you want to make (frustrating though that is).
Good luck!

I have a question, what’s your purpose? By that I mean, what’s the purpose of you making content and what led you to make the content. Now I ask, what is lacking? You say you’re lacking motivation, but something has to be missing causing you to lack motivation. If you post content to get more views and fame well it’s not gonna happen overnight. If you chose to post content because it’s fun then continue to do so. If you believe you need to find new techniques then look at other people contents and use that as inspiration to form new content. That’s what helps me whenever I’m lost. My go-to are always TikTok and Pinterest, but sometimes Instagram depending on what I’m looking for. Hopefully that helped

If it doesn’t light you up inside emotionally and get you excited then don’t post that topic.
You really have to get down with the vibe and that means play some music, and get excited. Switch yourself into creative mode. Play music, get excited, do what inspires you. If a video doesn’t inspire you get rid of it. Switch to another video.

Too many people try to force something on themselves. If it doesn’t light you up on the inside, skip it.

You either skip it, get inspired, or wait till a better idea comes along, and I would also say suspend your judgment when you’re actually building the video until it’s finished , and once it’s finished then you could have a few friends and yourself look at it.

Learn to let your feeling nature guide you, not just your logic, not just your intellect. The idea should make you jump out of the seat with excitement.
