You may do the following steps to reach your goal:
First, you can sign up your TikTok account with your email or phone number. The process is simple; just fill up the info such as username and password. Then upload your profile picture, follow some accounts if you like and start creating your own contents. You can do a lot of things on TikTok, from lip-syncing to surreal comedies.
