TikTok is a place where brands can show raw, organic content of what they are about and let it reach more users than ever on social media. At Fort Lauderdale and Aspen-based public relations and marketing agency Durée & Company, we know that there is a community for every kind of business, from ‘FoodTok” to “FashionTok” to “MarketingTok” and more. TikTok has seen the benefit it provides to small and large businesses alike and recently introduced TikTok for businesses where the advertising capabilities are endless. We’re here to share 5 reasons why a brand should be on TikTok.
- Organically Increase Brand Awareness
With the ever-changing algorithm of TikTok, anyone can post viral content. This algorithm organically increases a brand’s reach much faster than other platforms. Once a brand has made its presence on the app, narrow down a hashtag strategy and commit to a niche. Content will land on numerous screens of the ideal audience who are more likely to engage. The more that users engage, the more users will be reached.
- Different Advertising Sentiment
TikTok allows brands to experiment with different types of content. Humor, emotion, behind the scenes, or different points of view are some of the common approaches to sharing a brand’s message. Try all different styles and find what performs best. There is no “traditional advertising” when it comes to TikTok. Brands are learning to step out of their comfort zone and share products or services in unique ways.
- A “Niche” Community
There is a place for everyone and everything on TikTok. Everything has its own community on TikTok with a clever name. Search for BeautyTok, CarTok, BusinessTok and more within the app and find the community best for any brand. Our favorite is Public Relations Tok… obviously.
- TikTok for Business
TikTok for business allows brands to utilize campaign strategies to boost content while redirecting viewers to click the link to a website, go back to the brand’s profile or rapidly increase the view count. TikTok Ads Manager offers brands the opportunity to engage with the ideal audience while running ROI-focused campaigns.
- TikTok is Educational
Scrolling through TikTok may seem like a waste of time, but a business can learn so much from watching the 15-60 second videos. From graphic design tips to hashtag strategies and copywriting techniques, TikTok has become a place for users to share their tips and learn from others through this “snackable” content.
These are just a few of the reasons a brand should be on TikTok. If you’re looking for more reasons, download the app, watch some TikToks and find even more reasons to be on the app. Fair warning, it’s easy to get consumed with content for hours!
Ultimately, showing potential clients that a business is willing to grow and evolve with the times gives an upper hand over those who decide that treading the same waters is best. Go with the TikTok flow and see where it takes you!
