Calculating engagement rate for TikTok influencers

To calculate a TikTok account’s engagement rate, add all of the engagements (likes + comments etc.) across all the influencer's TikTok posts, divide by the total number of followers, then multiply by 100.

Using this formula, you'll be able to view the total overall engagements for an influencer's profile.

Modash uses the most recent 30 TikTok posts to calculate engagement rate, so it changes over time.

Engagement varies per niche & platform

Remember to compare apples to apples. What constitutes a good engagement rate for an interior designer on Tiktok might be completely different to that of an engineering YouTube channel.

To properly evaluate engagement rate, we recommend not only using our benchmarks above, but also comparing influencers to similar creators in the space. One method of finding similar creators is to use our influencer lookalike tool.

Follower count affects engagement rate

Average engagement rate gradually drops as an influencer's follower count grows.

This was true anecdotally based on influencers we & our users have worked with, and it has since been backed up by various studies, including our own benchmarks.

Smaller creators with <10k followers tend to have the highest engagement rates. While macro influencers or celebrities achieve a lot more reach, the engagement rate inevitably slows down.

A good engagement rate alone isn't enough

If you’re vetting a TikTok creator for a prospective partnership, checking engagement rates is a good start. It isn’t enough to make a decision alone though. You should also be thinking about:

  • Audience profile. Are they reaching your target demographics & geography?
  • Content quality. Would you be happy for your brand to be represented by this person?
  • Growth rate. Is their audience growing over time?

Building a process to check all of these things together before reaching out will increase your chances of a profitable influencer partnership.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is TikTok influencer engagement rate?

TikTok influencer engagement rate is a metric that reflects how often a TikTok account’s followers interact with their content. A higher engagement rate is desirable because it shows that the creator's audience is interested in their posts.

What is a good influencer engagement rate on TikTok?

Engagement rates vary a lot depending on the follower count, the niche, and the type of content. TikTok as a platform typically gets very good engagement rates. As a broad benchmark:

  • 0.66%-2.3% is considered standard,
  • 2.3%-3.96% is considered good,
  • 3.96% and anything above would be exceptional.

Remember to compare apples to apples. Compare TikTok accounts that are similar in terms of follower count, and audience where possible, instead of using generalized benchmarks.

How do you calculate TikTok engagement rate?

TikTok engagement rate is calculated by using this formula:

Average Organic Engagement Rate (%) = Total Engagement / Total number of followers x 100.

You can apply the formula to a single post, or to view an overall average for a profile. Modash’s engagement rate calculator uses the last 30 days data to calculate engagement rate.
