10 Advertising Ideas and The Way forward for TikTok With Coco Mocoe
1. “Authenticity” is such a buzzword however what does it actually imply? Authenticity is doing one thing you’d be doing whether or not a digital camera was filming you or not. Audiences are getting smarter and may sense pressured authenticity from a mile away.
2. “Quick type fatigue” goes to develop in 2024. Individuals cherished the brief, bite-sized items of content material within the first few years of the 20’s when TikTok was taking up. However now, individuals are craving substance. I predict we are going to see the rise of a creator or model in 2024 that leans into the 10-minute function on TikTok or we are going to see a resurgence of the YouTube vlog.
3. Ditch the developments. Trending audio was enormous for a pair years however creators and audiences alike are realizing that the quicker the developments rise, the quicker they fall. Trending audio is enjoyable and low-lift, however don’t make it your complete technique if you wish to construct a loyal following.
4. Dwell-streaming for companionship vs. leisure. Dwell-streaming had an enormous growth in 2023 with the rise of creators like pinkydoll and itzpsyiconic. Audiences aren’t tuning into live-streams for leisure however moderately companionship. They merely wish to be within the room with you. We’ll see the rise of live-streams like “work with me” or somebody proping their cellphone up within the nook of the room whereas they go about their every day routine.
5. Podcasting on TikTok. There’s an attention-grabbing intersection we have now seen rise between podcasts and TikTok in the previous couple of years. The For You Web page affords a discoverability not like another app. However the place TikTok struggles is with substance and longer-form content material. That’s the place podcasts are available. I imagine we are going to see the launch of longer-form podcasts on to the FYP. I might not be stunned if we see TikTok launch a podcast arm of their firm or signal unique offers with creators to convey their reveals completely to a TikTok podcast platform.
6. The rise of IG story creators. As folks complain increasingly about their IG feed feeling disconjointed, we would surprise why they nonetheless use the app? I feel the #1 use for IG now’s for tales and DM’s. That’s the reason we noticed the rise of accounts like deauxmoi who not often posted any in-feed photographs or reels, however as an alternative grew by posting every day sightings and “tea” of celebrities on their IG tales. The IG tales turned so in style they launched a number of podcasts and launched a e book.
7. “Reinvention for Retention”. The primary few years of the rise of TikTok, I used to inform folks “the nicher you go, the faster you develop.”Whereas I nonetheless imagine that to be true, I additionally assume we are actually seeing creators wrestle to seek out their footing as audiences transfer on from no matter area of interest factor made them in style. As an alternative, the creators who’re in a position to survive and proceed to develop their viewers in a “area of interest” ecosystem are those who’re in a position to reinvent themselves. Rebranding is perhaps one of many hardest issues to do on the web however it is without doubt one of the most essential abilities if you wish to have a long-standing profession.
8.The rise of “relatability fatigue.” Individuals and types cherished speaking about how “relatable” they had been the final couple years. However the phantasm of being relatable started to slide as folks’s most favourite “relatable” influencers started making tens of millions and going to the Met Gala. Whereas folks will all the time be naturally drawn to those who they relate to, I feel audiences are rising bored with how pressured it has develop into. As an alternative, we are going to see folks be drawn to those that aren’t forcing it. Perhaps they’re extravagant or possibly they’re attention-grabbing as a result of they know that their means to bond with their viewers isn’t depending on being similar to their audiences. There’s distance there and that’s okay.
9. Remark replies are nonetheless one of the vital underused instruments in advertising. We have now seen creators make enormous careers from utilizing the remark reply function. Take into consideration Jake Shane who blew up earlier this yr on TikTok by appearing out historic situations that his audiences commented about. However we nonetheless have but to see a model lean into the remark reply function to its full potential. I predict we are going to see a model blow up on-line that makes use of the remark reply function to give you concepts or make their viewers part of the method like by no means earlier than.
10. After its first yr involves an in depth, TikTok Store is going through legitimate skepticism proper now from manufacturers and customers alike. However like all social media platforms and options that find yourself taking up, there may be all the time wholesome skepticism when it first comes round. Nevertheless, the mixture of the FYP discoverability plus the convenience of ordering, it’s only a matter of time earlier than it takes over and competes with the likes of Amazon. One model, Unhealthy Dependancy Boutique, bought 50,000 items of a pickle sweatshirt due to TikTok Store. I imagine as soon as we see extra legit manufacturers get on the platform, we are going to see it develop into extra normalized. However that is solely the start of a altering e-commerce trade titan.
