4. Ways to promote your business on TikTok


  • Create funny and authentic content

TikTok is all about fun and visual content. If you take a look at the TikTok trending pages, you'll find a lot of funny videos, all with songs.

Here's a good example: Lush, a cosmetics retailer, is using TikTok to create funny videos to promote their products.

@lush

Love, hope and soap πŸ’•##lushsoapchallenge ##handwashingmove ##lushcommunity ##teachme ##knowbetter ##fyp ##foryoupage ##foryou ##washyourhands @lushspabath

♬ original sound - ashbash2425

PS: Make sure you add music to all your videos.
Keep it simple and be authentic.

  • Create a hashtag challenge

Another great way to promote your business on TikTok is by launching a hashtag challenge.

All you have to do is create a hashtag, make a TikTok video, then encourage other TikTok users to create content and add your branded hashtag to it.

A good example here is Samsung's #GalaxyA challenge.
Samsung asked users to draw the letter "A" on the palm of one hand and teleport it to the hand of another user.

A fun hashtag challenge not only promotes your business, but it also brings you more interactions and engagement on your posts.

@selinamour

Transition time! Gib jetzt ein β€žAβ€œ weiter und sei Teil der ##GalaxyA Challenge! πŸ‘‹ ##Samsung ##Anzeige

♬ Write My Story - Samsung

After creating a branded hashtag, you can add that hashtag to Socialinsider's dashboard and analyze the performance of it.

  • Compare with your competitors

Make sure you take a look at what your competitors are doing on TikTok.

Why?

Because you can create unique videos, or record hashtag challenges videos, but the best thing you can do to optimize your TikTok strategy is to permanently analyze and compare your profile with the ones of your competitors.
