As life goes slowly back to normal, TikTok still remains a part of the everyday life of many users that fell in love with the app during the curfews and quarantines.
But, while the never-ending buzz around the platform goes with us in the new post-pandemic world, business marketers still are skeptical about so much praise for the potential of advertising on the app. Proof of success by some of the visionary brands that adopted TikTok early isn’t enough – question remains, is it worth it to include TikTok in your advertising activities?
User growth is accelerating, but TikTok is constantly working on new ways to enhance the experience for both its users and marketers. The latest result of these efforts is the new ad format on TikTok, the Lead Generation option, designed to create potential customers and drive conversions for businesses on the app. Today, we dig into reasons why this is a breakthrough moment for many advertisers and additional, if all previous weren’t enough, to once again consider TikTok as a place to do your marketing!
What makes it such a big deal?
With so many ways at our disposal, using email campaigns, social networks and blog posts, businesses dedicate large budgets for lead generation purposes. So, what makes TikTok’s approach so special?
First of all, TikTok’s Lead Generation ads are designed to allow your customers to share information about them without leaving the app at any time. A big part of this process is automated, making the whole process even simpler. No more waiting for those landing pages to load and long forms that interrupt the user’s experience.
The instant form is preceded by a video, so all the advantages of mobile-first campaigns that TikTok nourishes can be used here. This comes in handy for creating interest while approaching potential customers, especially if you aim at Gen-Zers and Millennials.
The information collected in forms is stored on TikTok and available for download at any time, also allowing you to integrate data directly to your CRM. Primarily recognized as a perfect fit for industries such as gaming, entertainment, retail, education, franchise and automotive, thanks to its customization options, Lead Generation Ads can help any business on TikTok to reach their customer base and generate revenue. There are even brands that are using the TikTok lead forms for B2B lead generation.
