Making TikTok a part of your marketing strategy could be a cost-effective way to grow a customer base. Using the TikTok logo  could be especially good for brand awareness and reaching younger consumers. 

Here are some simple tips to help you start using TikTok for business:

1. Know your audience

Find out where they are, what they like to talk about and what they’re interested in. The more time you can spend on TikTok doing research like this, the better. 

2. Inform and inspire

Decide how best to showcase your business. The type of content you create should align with your brand. Mix information with inspiration by educating your audience about your product in an entertaining way. Show the real you, as people love a peak behind the curtain.

3. It’s all about the trends

TikTok search  is fuelled by trends and challenges. Make sure you stay engaged and act quickly on any trends that resonate with your business. Find creative ways to take part in challenges and make trends work for you. Research and use the right hashtags every time you post.

4. Community care

Remember TikTok is first and foremost a community, so be engaging and responsive. Ask questions in your posts to provoke engagement and make sure you reply to comments. Consider collaborating with influencers and other creators in your product segment.

5. Cross-promote like a pro

For TikTok business especially, your post in the channel should be just the start. You can cross-promote your videos on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. As well as building your following this will drive views of your original post.

This applies to all social posting of course, but analysis is the key to growth. All the data is there for you to measure what works, what doesn’t and what might need tweaking. Analyse your views, engagement and follower numbers, then optimise your content accordingly.
