TikTok Launches Free Marketing Education Series for Small Business
For marketers that want to increase brand recognition, there are few places out there with higher levels of engagement than TikTok. Pair this with the ease and low cost with which brands can create a beneficial presence on the platform and it is hardly surprising that it is fast becoming the favourite social media platform for many marketers.
Yet, with TikTok being a relative newcomer to the social media landscape, at least compared to other players such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, there is still much confusion among marketers on the best ways to approach benefiting their small businesses on the platform.
Luckily, TikTok has recently launched its ‘Follow Me’ experience which promises to help SMBs grow their TikTok presence and get the most from their activity. This guide tells you a little more about TikTok’s Follow Me experience and how you can get involved.
TikTok for Small Business
With over 1 billion global active monthly users and engagement rates which far surpass other leading social media platforms, a large percentage of your target audience is likely both present and active on TikTok.
This is just part of why small businesses should seriously consider marketing themselves on the platform.
In addition, TikTok allows brands to take a more casual approach to social media content. Unlike other platforms, where branded content is typically polished, it is largely more acceptable to publish unedited footage on TikTok. This is especially true of content that gives a ‘behind the scenes’ look at your business.
This approach allows small businesses to lean into their individual personalities, build their brand and also will enable them to compete with the big players in their industry.
