TikTok represents new advertising implements

Publication date: 08 Feb 2021

In winter 2021, TikTok, the internet service for making and watching short videos, represented some new tools and implements for further promotion. The most popular users may, now, benefit from spreading their opinion about services and goods and sharing links to receive a commission on factual sales. Video makers can post links to any products and brands without being officially assigned. Companies will be able to demonstrate their catalogues. Live shopping is about to appear on-line – a smartphone version of TV-shopping. Users purchase things at a click.

These implements extend the live shopping concept, which TikTok is going to develop in cooperation with Walmart. New advertising functions of TikTok will strengthen its position in a competition with Facebook for the American market. TikTok, by the way, has already announced a newly established partnership with Shopify – the e-commerce platform. TikTok intends to carry on further development of its self-service advertising platform, which enables customers (companies, brands) to place ads on their own. Moreover, the company aims at leveraging the targeting (as a tool), including user tracking.
