Why Should Brands Advertise with TikTok?

If you haven't considered advertising on TikTok, consider this - it is the fastest social platform, with over 1 billion active users. The video platform's ad revenue predicts to surpass Twitter's and Snapchat's revenue combined. According to the research firm Insider Intelligence, "TikTok's advertisement revenue is likely to triple in 2022 to more than $11 billion, exceeding the combined sale of its rivals." 

Take a look at Social Media Examiner's blog post to learn key TikTok elements and how to create your own ad creative.


Take Notes

Evaluate Your Competitor's Landing Page

Marketers are encouraged to do competitive analysis to get ahead today, including their website and landing pages. In evaluating your competition, identify what their website lacks and where it excels, and then use that information to fine-tune your own pages. View Content Marketing Institute's article and BDX's infographic to learn advice from SEO and content marketing experts to evaluate your competitors' landing pages and better your own. 

Personalized Email Marketing Automation

Today's consumers expect personalization in their everyday experiences. In fact, according to SmarterHQ, "72% of consumers say they only engage with personalized messaging." Email marketing automation can send personalized content to customers throughout the buying journey. What differentiates email marketing automation from other emails is that these messages get triggered when a user takes action, such as viewing a particular product.

Easter is just around the corner. This holiday is an excellent time to roll out tactful marketing opportunities and connect with your Twitter audience and new prospects.
