Our recent 2021 TikTok® Benchmarks and Strategy Guide for Brands showcased unequivocally that TikTok® has become a significant focus for brands in the past year. Our research looked at over 900 individual brand accounts and saw accounts like Overtime, Guinness World Records, and UN Refugees leading their categories for most followed accounts within the sports media, brands, and nonprofit categories.
Join us May 12, 2021 as Conviva’s own short form marketing expert Mike Metzler hosts a webinar with three of the biggest brands on TikTok® to discuss what happens when your social TikTok® experiment turns into a formal social strategy.
During this webinar we’ll talk about how the social teams at Overtime, Guinness World Records, and Refugees have moved out of the experimental stage, into recognizing TikTok® as an extension of their social brand identity. The panelists will discuss:
- How their approach to TikTok® has evolved
- TikTok® monetization options and strategies
- How TikTok® has impacted their other social channels
- How they think brands will utilize TikTok® in the future
- Using TikTok® as a funnel for off-app content and KPIs
