- The Power of TikTok
TikTok has taken the social media world by storm, boasting over 1 billion active users worldwide, no mean feat given its relevant newness in the social media world as it was launched only in 2018. Its unique format of short videos, ranging from 15 to 10 minutes (yes, that is 10 minutes!!), has captivated the attention of Gen Z and Millennials. However, as those of us using the app on a regular basis will tell you, every day you’ll see brands you’ll be familiar with locally and internationally along with friends you didn’t realise were on the app yet (they turn up as suggestions for you!). Like many other platforms there are a lot of “lurkers” and among them you may well find your audience…With its addictive nature and algorithm-driven content discovery, TikTok offers businesses an unparalleled opportunity to reach a vast and engaged audience.
