Why TikTok is Becoming the Advertising TikTalk of the Town

Think TikTok is just dance challenges and hit songs? Think again.

Boasting over 1B+ monthly active users (and growing), more and more brands are flocking to this popular app as their advertising platform of choice. With 8 new users per second and an average of 90 minutes spent in-app each day, it’s one of the fastest growing platforms in history …not to mention the most-used social networks in the world.

Famous for its endless stream of short-form videos, TikTok enables access to a global stage where the brand can reach new audiences unlike ever before. From branded takeovers and targeted ads to hashtag challenges and more, this is one digital trend you most certainly do not want to ignore.

Wondering how to get started? Keep reading as we uncover our unique approach that’s proven to help brands profitably extend reach among new and existing audiences on TikTok.

Jumbolicious Technologies – A TikTok Ad Agency

As a strategic agency, you can trust Jumbolicious Technologies to determine which channels make the most sense for your brand’s advertising programs. Throughout our initial assessment, we’ll take into account the following business fundamentals:

Product

TikTok’s diverse audience makes it the ultimate channel for marketing almost any product. From fashionistas to foodies, leverage TikTok’s capabilities to hyper-target audiences based on age, gender, interest, and more.

AOV

Regarding average order value, we’ve found that products ranging between $50 and $80 perform best. However–don’t let that number deter you as we’ve also seen $500 products exceeding their cheaper counterparts. The opportunity is there for your business to capture high-converting, high-quality traffic at very low spending. The key? Creating the right content that’s engaging and authentic.

Target Audience

Looking to reach a new audience? You’re in the right place. With TikTok’s increasingly diverse user base, the possibilities to tap into new and existing audiences are endless. As one of the fastest-growing apps in history, your brand will have even more opportunities to connect with potential customers than ever before.

Step 1. User Generated Content/ Influencer Marketing

So who’s creating this viral content that people can’t help but consume? Users. TikTok has bridged the gap between consumer and creator to propel unknown users into viral sensations overnight. Thanks to its intelligent algorithm, content isn’t limited just to those who subscribe to an influencer’s channel. So, to tap into TikTok’s success, the key here is to make “addicting content” that will go viral and sell your product.

Step 2. How To Set Up TikTok

TikTok is the land of marketing opportunities for brands looking to scale. Before running any ads or campaigns, ensure you’ve set up everything correctly to maximize your tracking capabilities on TikTok Pixel:

API tracking is ON:

Turn on API tracking to help optimize campaign performance. Keeping track of this data is important, as it offers valuable insights into your audience and how often they interact with your ads.

Maximum Data sharing is ON:

If you want to maximize reach on TikTok, keep Maximum Data sharing on. Utilizing custom APIs shows data from TikTok’s partners’ servers and customer browsing data, making data blocking less probable.

Pixel Is Tracking Important Events:

First, make sure your events are accurately defined so that you can track your ad’s impact. (You can double check if the Pixel is set up in the correct way using the TikTok Pixel Helper extension for your browser.)

Don’t have an Ad Account yet? Not to worry—we have an excellent post for setting up TikTok that will provide you with all the information you need to get started. If you’re thinking about launching your first campaign with TikTok marketing, the right question is: How do I structure my first testing campaign and what should I aim for?

Step 3. TikTok Ads

If you want to succeed on TikTok, you need to test campaign performance consistently thoroughly. User-generated content (UGC) will be integral to your overall strategy—which is why you must test even more regularly to find a creative that works.

The key to success on Tik Tok is video content, which you run inside your ads manager. TikTok will favor you if you give the platform the right piece of content that users will like. The strength of TikTok is that it has the most intelligent AI capabilities, capable of identifying what users like and showing them the videos they are most likely to watch. A key element is that the ads must appear native to the app, just regular users sharing their real-world experiences. Taking all of this into account, we have identified the following videos as having the most success on the app:

VOICEOVER:

If the ad doesn’t appear to be selling something blatantly, people will be more likely to watch it. For accessibility and user-friendliness, it’s crucial to ensure that captions are available.

DYNAMIC:

Dynamic ads are engaging creatives that showcase new music, products, and other elements that excite your audience about your brand. Unlike static ads, these should move quickly and capture the user’s attention.

TESTIMONIAL:

First, make sure your events are accurately defined so that you can track your ad’s impact. (You can double check if the Pixel is set up in the correct way using the TikTok Pixel Helper extension for your browser.)

Step 4. Campaign Structure – How to Launch Your First Campaign

Pick Your Winning Ad:

Using our tips above, you should pick the ad (or 3-5 ads) that you think will do the best on TikTok. We’re happy to help you select the ad we think will perform the best, based on our vast experience. From these ads, hopefully, you’ll find 1-2 of the best-performing ones with good metrics (at least 1%+ CTR and CPC under $1, for example).

Duplicate In A Separate Campaign:

From the winning ads, duplicating them in a separate campaign is essential for testing cost caps.

Start Testing Cost Caps:

Change your adsets to target cost caps. Pick a range (for example, $40-$60). Launch 3-7 adsets within this range.

Find The Sweet Spot:

Find the sweet spot within this testing to get the lowest CPA. For example, You’re getting the lowest CPA between $40-$50.

Expand Your Ad Spend In That Range:

We recommend testing more in depth, for example trying $41, $42, $43, etc. Try each cost cap inside the winning range ($40-$50 in our case) and find out even more profitable combinations of targeting.
