This 15 Year Old Gained Close To a Million Followers in Just 3 Months – Teen Blurb


Meet: Khalil Yatim, a 15-year-old influencer on TikTok who has gained over 800k followers in just three months. Yatim’s content is mostly based on pulling pranks and other types of comedy sketches involving his father.

We wanted to learn more about Khalil and his story. Here’s what he had to say:

Cox: How did the idea for your business come about? 

Yatim: The idea came about through A LOT of trial and error. At first I was uploading a lot of magic content such as sleight of hand and entertaining tricks. But as time went by I realized my engagement was not up to par to what I wanted it to be. So then I got an idea, I said to myself “hmm what if I try to prank my dad for a video!” And I took off since then.

Cox: Why is your business unique?

Yatim: Well I wouldn’t necessarily say unique, but I would say I am the only lebanese tiktoker that I have seen that pranks his dad! So I guess that’s a way that my business is unique.

Cox: What was your key driving force to become an entrepreneur?

Yatim: My key driving force was my goal to 1 million followers. Back in late June of this year I saved a note to my memories in snapchat of me saying, “I swear on my life all of y’all are going to see me one day blow up, I will do everything in my power to achieve my dreams.. just wait and see” and since then I started grinding videos on tiktok and started to experiment to see what works and what doesn’t.. I have yet to hit 1 million but I’m really close. It will happen soon.

Cox: How did you build a successful customer base?

Yatim: Well I started off taking inspiration from other content creators in my bracket. Once I got an idea I tried to mix it up into my own way/into my liking. Also, whenever there was a trend on tiktok, I would take that trend and and my own twist to it. And the rest is history!

Cox: What has been your favorite moment in business?

Yatim: My favorite moment I would say is obviously my fans but if I had to pick it would be my mentality to achieving want I want in life. In late June I set a goal to myself to hit 1 million followers and even if others doubted me I knew I could do it. Look at me now! So close to my goal.. Right now is the most important time to start grinding more videos!
