While the end-of-year holidays may seem far away, advertisers around the world are already strategizing how they will connect with consumers as the season approaches. In preparation for this pivotal time of year, TikTok just announced their launch of Shopping Ads, and Smartly.io is excited to launch side-by-side TikTok as the first-to-market campaign and ads partner, just in time to offer brands critical planning opportunities for this holiday shopping season.
The end-of-year holidays offer the perfect time for brands to check in with consumers, particularly on social media, and one of the most important platforms for re-engaging with consumers is TikTok.
The goal of any advertiser is to speak directly to consumers with a personalized experience, and as a platform, TikTok is known for rewarding authenticity and fostering new relationships. The app is designed for discovery with an algorithm built to recommend a personalized experience for each user that often leads them to find new content and creators. A recent study found that 56% of TikTokers say that ads on TikTok help them discover new products or brands and 48% say they are interested in making a purchase on or from TikTok in the next 3 months. Combined, these factors make TikTok an instrumental part of any brand’s multi-platform advertising strategy this holiday season.
Here at Smartly.io, we are providing automated tools designed to help advertisers hone their 2022 holiday shopping strategy. Smartly.io’s latest tool, TikTok Shopping Ads, represents vast possibilities to leverage TikTok and build lasting relationships with their customers.
