TikTok is quickly becoming one of the most popular social media platforms, and it’s no surprise that businesses are taking notice. With its unique format and massive user base, TikTok is an ideal platform for ecommerce brands to advertise their products. In addition to this, the platform provides an incredibly exciting and cost-effective way to reach new audiences at scale.
TikTok's algorithm is designed to show users content that is relevant to them, so businesses can target their ads to the right people. Additionally, TikTok’s ads are relatively inexpensive compared to other social media platforms, making it a great option for businesses on a budget. This is because there are significantly less advertisers on this platform competing for user’s attention than the likes of Facebook and Instagram, making their CPM’s (cost per 1000 impressions) much lower.
