TikTok is a popular platform that allows users to make short video content through the mobile app. The users have creative control over their content which often features with popular music tracks.
Other TikTok users can join in or react to videos by filming their responses/duets alongside the original video.
TikTok has over 800 million active users, yet most brands are concerned about using the platform for consumer advertising purposes.
Like us, are you wondering why?
For some reason, there has been negative speculation surrounding the platform, making brands wary of joining.
We know this isn’t true, as most of the team here at Neon are always using the app, and believe it or not, we do not fit in the generation Z category.
On a global scale, there is an increase of audiences ranging from 16 – 24, 25 – 34 and 35 – 44, equalling around 80% of total users.
With this in mind, brands need to realise there is so much potential on TikTok to reach out to different age groups and potential untapped target audiences.
TikTok carries many categories on its platform, which houses all brands to be able to promote their products or services.
