Demystifying TikTok: The New Star of Video Marketing

In my time as a creative director at Fiverr Videos, I’ve seen many video trends come and go. But none have exploded onto the scene quite like TikTok. Just a few years ago, few people would have predicted that a platform famed for short, snappy and often silly videos would become a power player in the marketing world yet, here we are! It’s an exciting time to be in the video production business, particularly when working on a budget. And with TikTok, there’s a real opportunity to create engaging content without breaking the bank.

A Game-Changer in the Making

I remember discovering TikTok while exploring affordable ways to create impactful video content for my clients. It was an instant revelation. Here’s a platform that thrives on brevity, authenticity, and creativity – attributes that can be leveraged with small budgets but loads of imagination.

Striking Gold with User-Generated Content

Embracing Authentic Creativity

One trend I’ve noticed on the rise is the use of user-generated content (UGC). UGC is more than that though, it’s about authenticity. By encouraging customers or fans to create content around your brand, you are fostering a community. And, not to mention, it’s a gold mine for free, creative content.

One of my favourite UGC campaigns was by Chipotle. They launched the #GuacDance challenge, inviting users to come up with a dance routine about their love for guacamole. The result? Over 250,000 submissions and record sales on National Avocado Day.

Of course, not every UGC campaign will reach these heights, but the premise is fantastic. Authentic, engaging content that not only keeps your brand top of mind but also helps cement a relationship with your audience.

Targeting and Engaging a Gen Z

TikTok’s engaged audience is primarily composed of Generation Z, a demographic that’s proving elusive yet lucrative for many brands. I’ve found that educational content – or ‘Edutok’ – is a powerful tool here. This trend involves creating informative, quick breadcrumb trails of learning. It’s a fantastic way to reach and engage with Gen Z users on topics they care about and establish your brand as a knowledgeable authority in your field.

Branding through Trending Challenges

Another emerging TikTok trend is hashtag challenges. These involve encouraging users to create or recreate content labeled with a branded hashtag. I’ve seen this generate massive brand awareness and engagement, all within a tight budget.

Partnerships with TikTok Influencers

TikTok influencers can also be surprisingly affordable and effective partners, particularly those with micro-followings that align tightly with your target market. A strategic partnership transforms your brand’s reach, allowing access to a whole new, engaged audience.
