Who is Auntie Bev?

Read Time:2 Minute, 23 Second

I am known as Auntie Bev on TikTok. Here’s my TikTok story….

Nearly three months ago I decided to take the plunge and join TikTok at the suggestion of my grandson. Last year I had downloaded the app to watch videos but found it taking up A LOT of time during my day so I deleted the app. I honestly never saw myself there as a creator there but sometimes young people do know more than us “old-heads.”

Since I had lost my full-time job as a result of COVID, I decided I would use the platform to help young people build their vocabulary and overall communication skills. I was completely surprised that the first word I introduced, COGNIZANT, received more than 50K views over a 48-hour period. (That video has now been viewed more than 179k times). I didn’t quite understand it all at first but my 14-year-old grandson “schooled” me on why the views were significant. It meant I went viral in a relatively short period of time, which he says is rare when you first join the platform. It also meant I was on the road to receiving monetary compensation based on the number of views I received. I am still trying to learn how to make money there but I do know the more videos you make, the more financial opportunities you have.

After my one month anniversary, I had 191k followers and my videos had been viewed more than 6 million times. What I believe is there is a real thirst for knowledge and if you can deliver it in a relatively short period of time ( :60 or less), people will like and follow you. What I also believe is my background as a journalist and a strong communicator are advantages. I know how to articulate my thoughts and ideas with clarity and I know how to create a video. I may not be a “creative genius” but I can make a point with the videos I shoot.

As a result of my TikTok experience, I started a one-on-on coaching business for people who need “extra help” with developing and building their speaking and writing skills. I’ve also discovered that young people aren’t the only ones who need help with building and expanding their communication skills.

.I’m not sure how many people know that Beverly Mahone and Auntie Bev are one and the same. I chose to become Auntie because I want my followers to think of me as family—someone who wants to see them grow and has their best interest at heart. After all, that’s what Auntie’s do!
