How TikTok's holiday tool kit helps small businesses reach more customers
In a very short time, TikTok has gone from a viral video platform known more for its dance challenges to Ad Age's No. 1 Marketer of the Year. With 100 million active users in the U.S., brands have discovered that the platform is a powerful storytelling tool, with the ability to seamlessly weave ads into the user experience with the unique ability to influence what TikTokers purchase. 47% of users made a purchase decision based on what they saw in TikTok content, while a whopping 80% of Gen Z TikTokers have influenced their parents' purchases.
And thanks to tools like their Ads Manager, small businesses can launch a successful campaign with minimal effort or budget—and see more success than with any of TikTok's competitors—virtually overnight.
