TikTok, a platform to discover

TikTok is a short video sharing platform, with or without music, whose mission is to entertain and entertain; it is also a creative content discovery platform characterized by an algorithm that pushes the user to always discover new content.

The difference of TikTok compared to other social networks is that, to start experimenting, you don’t need to follow anyone: the contents are shown as soon as you access the app and, when you start following friends, on the homepage it will be possible to find both types of videos. In the discovery page section, on the other hand, it is possible to search for users and hashtags, as well as browse among the trends and challenges of the moment.

  • hashtag challenge: sponsored themed challenges to generate brand awareness.
  • brand lenses: Snapchat-style custom effects that users can use.
  • Although TikTok is very useful for increasing the visibility of brands, it is recommended to integrate it into an existing Cross-Platform social strategy, in order to convey traffic to other channels as well, increasing awareness and positioning of the brand.

 

How much does it cost to manage a corporate TikTok page

A Tik Tok page is generally managed by a Social Media Manager (SMM), who is a technician specialized in social media, with strong communication and web marketing skills. Generally the SMM is supported by a Graphic Designer and a Copy Editor, who deal respectively with the graphic and textual part of the editorial plan of the page. For more complex projects, it is also possible to include an Account Manager and a Media Planner in the team who are responsible for coordinating the activities and planning the advertising budget respectively. From these indications it can be deduced that the cost for managing a page varies greatly depending on the team allocated and the quantity and complexity of the posts to be created, but in any case it is between a few hundred and a few thousand euros per month. To this amount must be added the budget to be paid to Tik Tok to activate advertising with all the possible options available as needed.
