With over 689 million active users globally and approximately 1 million videos viewed daily, there is no doubt that Tik Tok has taken the world by storm.
What exactly is Tik Tok?
For those who aren’t familiar with this new kid on the block, Tik Tok is a fun platform where users can create and share unique video content in a vertical format.
Should your brand be on Tik Tok?
More than ever, many businesses are looking to jump on the Tik Tok bandwagon.
The key thing to consider when deciding whether or not to invest your time and effort into Tik Tok is who your target audience is. Generally, if you’re targeting a younger age group, then leveraging Tik Tok as a marketing tool is a great idea.
Tik Tok has made it easier for brands to explore a different side of their personality. If you want to showcase a more relaxed and edgy side of your brand, then Tik Tok is the platform for you! Through creating original and authentic content, you can show off a less curated side of your brand and connect on a more personal level with your audience. This helps grow your brand’s online community, increase engagement and drive traffic to your website as well as other social media platforms.
