Marketing on a
valuable platform

Although TikTok is still a newcomer, it is now competing with the well-established platforms Instagram, Facebook and Youtube. TikTok is currently the most downloaded app with more than 800 million active users worldwide, of which 200,000 are Danish. So it's no surprise that companies are starting to see a growing potential for marketing on the platform - even Amplify is on TikTok!

Despite its huge popularity, the app is still a bit of a mystery to many marketers in some ways. If you want to succeed on the fast-growing app, you need to keep your tongue in your cheek and your finger on the pulse. Whether you're just getting started or you're ready to update your digital presence, take a look at this sharp presentation of the future of media.

TikTok - hours of entertainment

TikTok. You've probably heard the name before and with its massive popularity around the world, it's almost impossible not to. Many may still associate the platform with children and young people making dance videos. This may have been the case... a few years ago, but a lot has happened since then.

The app is characterized by being high-speed media. From the second you open it, you are presented with a stream of videos selected by an algorithm based on your interests. However, the algorithm means that users have no control over what is shown on their For You Page (FYP). Therefore, there is an opportunity to target both the target audience AND users who were not necessarily interested beforehand. With the high speed, the medium is ideal for spreading videos to as many users as quickly as possible.

Why you should advertise on TikTok

So far, so good. To summarize the above, TikTok is a high-speed medium that offers a great opportunity to reach a large user base quickly. It also means that it's not necessary to have a large following to go viral, as it typically does on other platforms. It also means that the platform is already home to all kinds of businesses and creative industries that are taking advantage of the opportunity to spread their product and services to a wide range of users quickly. 

The videos are usually between 15 seconds and a minute long, making the application ideal for people who need some quick entertainment. It also means that users don't necessarily care about perfect camera work or quality video production. The content covers a wide range of entertainment, including dance, lipsync, satire and informative stories - the possibilities are almost endless. TikTok provides ample opportunity to unleash your creativity and drive traffic through fun content.

The statistics don't lie

If we take a closer look at how users perceive content, some quick statistics say that:

  • 68% of TikTok users say popular songs and sounds help them remember brands better.
  • 36% of TikTok users would like to learn about products through short video formats.
  • 55% of TikTok users use the platform to research new products and companies.
  • 83% of TikTok users say the medium plays a role in their buying behavior.

These numbers make a good argument for why it is relevant to include TikTok in your marketing strategy - especially if your business is B2C. The medium is a great place to increase both brand awareness and knowledge of a new product.

3 different ways

The next step is how to actually drive visibility and sales on TikTok. Let's take a closer look at that.

There are three main ways you can market your business on TikTok.

  • Create your own channel
  • Collaborating with Influencers
  • Pay for ads on TikTok.

The most obvious method is that you can create your own channel from which you can create and upload videos yourself. This is not advertising, but organic content. Another method, which you probably know from Instagram, is that you can partner with influencers to spread the content to a larger user base. Last but not least, you can choose to advertise. 

Start your TikTok advertising

To get started advertising on TikTok, you need a business account. You then create ads, campaigns and measure data in TikTok Business Center (TBC), which looks very similar to Facebook Ads Manager. However, TBC doesn't have as many features as Ads Manager, which makes this tool easier to navigate.

In the Business Center, you create campaigns by clicking Create under Campaign. Setting up an ad is then divided into three levels, which we will discuss in more detail below.

Are we a match for you?

Of course we want as many customers as possible - but not at any cost. Because not everyone is a match for Amplify.

But is your company thinking long-term and do you understand that one-off hourly tasks are not a shortcut to success - neither in organic search engine results nor in relation to your business goals?

Then Amplify might be your next agency.

We help customers who want to take their marketing strategy to new heights.

Examples of TikTok Ads

Now that you know how to set up an ad, it's time to decide what type of advertising you want to use. The two most commonly used advertising methods in Denmark are In-feed and Topview. They are considered to be the two most effective ads at the cheapest price.

There are five different ad types on TikTok:

  • In-feed Ads
  • Brand Takeovers
  • TopView
  • Branded Effects
  • Hashtag Challenges.

Let's go through them one by one.

Tips for success on Tiktok

To create a successful platform on TikTok, both your videos and ads should stem from trends, humor, storytelling and effects - most importantly, you need to stand out from the crowd.

  • Use trendy audio and captions

Using music and sound effects that are trending is probably one of the fastest ways to create visibility on TikTok. The texts are also important for creating a CTA, for example. The algorithm rewards you based on engagement, so make sure to create interaction in the form of viewers, likes, comments and shares.

  • Be creative, keep your finger on the pulse and stand out

It can be easy to follow a trend. It's therefore important to take part in a trend while it's happening, but also to create original content within that framework.

  • Get to the point

TikTok moves fast - both in trends and video uploads. It's therefore important that you are able to participate in the trends while they last, and at the same time create eye-catchers if you want to keep viewers' attention. Most videos, including ads, emphasize the main message within the first three seconds. Finally, it's important that you have a positive, authentic and inspiring energy.
