Quotes by Tim Armoo:

“The most interesting thing about TikTok is perhaps the platform where it lends itself so much to content creation that it’s unbelievable.”

“TikTok lends itself for people to be so creative but in their own unique ways.”

“Even though the audiences can be different…the thing that stays the same is if you’re able to do it in a creative way, you’ll always win.”

“TikTok doesn’t reward good profiles. It rewards good videos.”
