Most companies already understand that TikTok is hugely popular with a younger generation and is growing in popularity across all age ranges, and it’s time for businesses that haven’t gotten on board to start doing so if they’re looking to reach their audiences where they are. Out of all the social media platforms available to companies these days, the unique functionality and culture on TikTok has made the platform one of the most challenging social media channels in terms of content creation for many businesses. Fortunately, for companies looking to start establishing a presence on TikTok, influencer partnerships can be a great way to begin.
Companies understand how difficult it’s become to reach their target audiences by only relying on advertising campaigns. Additionally, with the increased distrust of advertising campaigns from consumers, a lot of them have started utilizing ad blockers at an increased rate, and outright ignoring the ads that they come across on social media platforms, which has generated a decline in the effectiveness of these types of campaigns. Additionally, companies are not made to create the type of authentic content that the younger generations of consumers are looking to engage with, which is why many have decided to create partnerships with influencers that are good at creating that type of content. That means if a company wants to reach its target audiences on TikTok, it should let the local users of the platform speak on the behalf of the company. Although this concept is true for influencer marketing campaigns, no matter the target audience or social media platform, it’s especially true for TikTok because of the unique audience demographics and culture on the platform.
