The popularity of TikTok shop
TikTok has become one of the most popular social media platforms, with over 1.5 billion daily active users. It is a place where entertainment and commerce meet, transforming how brands connect with their audiences and how consumers shop.
Last year saw the introduction of TikTok shop, a shopping feature accessible directly on the platform, allowing creators and brands to sell through in-feed and live video content. The convenience of users having the ability to watch a video on their phone, see a product they like and immediately buy it has meant social commerce is becoming the forefront of eCommerce. TikTok has become the perfect opportunity for businesses to create content and raise awareness of their brands, with 49% of users claiming they use TikTok as a source of discovering something new.
In addition to this, TikTok is continuing to change people’s shopping habits. In January 2022, 72% of users made a purchase or stories. As well as this, TikTok users are 1.5x more likely to immediately buy something they had discovered on the platform.
Why you should integrate
eCommerce shouldn’t just stop with one sales channel. Growth comes from capitalising on new audiences, across new channels, and in new regions. It’s no coincidence that TikTok is rapidly becoming the fastest-growing social shopping platform. Offering a native shop with direct routes to purchase from ads or creator content, preferentially distributing shop content across millions of worldwide feeds, and actively enabling creators to improve their discoverability, often without additional cost to the creator are just a handful of ways TikTok are actively putting shopping capabilities at the spearhead of their growth.
Adding TikTok into your sales channel portfolio could be a quick, easy, and extremely cost-effective way to capitalise on social impulse purchases and sell in large volumes to new markets, whether they are domestic or international. Having the right partners on board to support your journey, doing (literally) the heavy lifting so you don’t have to will only remove any friction on the road to success.
