TikTok has dominated the internet. Its associated app was the most installed non-game variety in the first half of 2021 (383 million installs), and TikTok now ranks as the fourth most popular social media service.
Companies looking to expand would be careless to proceed without marketing strategies that target its now billion-plus active monthly users.
How TikTok Can Enhance Your Marketing Strategy:
While TikTok is primarily used to display trends, it can also be an extremely effective marketing tool.
Connect with a large and diverse audience
While it’s true that most TikTok content creators are young, there is a common misunderstanding that all users are young. Although 41% of TikTok viewers are between the ages of 16 and 24, 59% are over 25. Many generations, from Baby Boomers to Generation Z, can utilize this platform to its full potential.
TikTok has users of all ages from all over the world. Within the TikTok population, numerous opportunities exist to reach each niche audience. TikTok is an effective platform for interacting with new audiences in other countries if you want to tap into international markets.
Display your offerings authentically.
Its emphasis on authenticity distinguishes TikTok. TikTok users prefer to be informed or entertained rather than sold to. Gaining community members and potential customers would be more effective by connecting the viewer to the product through a relatable story or fun trend.
To create entertaining and engaging TikTok content, no expensive equipment or complicated technical skills are required. Anyone with an internet connection and smartphone can start posting on TikTok. Trends are excellent ways for users to participate in the app, allowing anyone and everything to go viral — including your brand!
Businesses can easily create content in the form of short, digestible clips that capture viewers’ attention while spotlighting what their brand has to offer. Producing trend-driven organic content, utilizing popular hashtags, and integrating TikTok influencers into promotional campaigns are all effective TikTok strategies.
Increase traffic to your website
TikTok is an additional platform for increasing brand exposure and driving traffic to your company website. TikTok provides a platform for individuals and businesses to expand their presence into new markets. Creating content that attracts people, gets them to click on your TikTok profile, and then directs them to your company’s website or other social media platforms is a great way to attract customers.
Many creators include a storefront, making the app an excellent resource for small businesses that would otherwise be unable to reach such a large audience. This increased exposure has proven very effective, propelling many businesses of all sizes to success.
Use Influencer Marketing to Your Advantage
TikTok is massive and only growing. Keeping up with trends and understanding the intricacies of TikTok marketing is no easy task. Businesses could benefit from contacting TikTok influencers for assistance in promoting their brand. Influencers already have a large following and have done great work of creating a niche target audience.
Participating in, rather than imitating, TikTok’s authenticity will propel your brand to success. The platform provides an excellent opportunity to raise brand awareness. While TikTok should not be your sole marketing strategy, it can significantly aid in the growth of your brand.
