Jul 2020


TikTok is the social network that certainly pleases the Millenials but not only! Since the Covid-19 crisis and containment, its creative, fun, and offbeat video format has also attracted other generations in search of lightness and entertainment.

The number of downloads – which has surpassed 2 billion – is just one of the many proofs of the dazzling success of this true social phenomenon.

Want to launch your next Influencer Marketing campaign on the social network? Here are some tips from our experts on how to collaborate with the most relevant TikTok influencers for your brand.

Why choose TikTok?

-The figures speak for themselves: TikTok recently set a record with more than 2 billion downloads worldwide in April 2020, on the Apple and Google stores, (source: Sensor Tower). TikTok is popular and it’s not going to stop any time soon.

-TikTok is the beloved social network of the Z generation: 40% of TikTok users worldwide belong to the 16-24 age group (source: Digiday). The choice of this platform, therefore, becomes relevant when you want to target a young target and (re)dynamize your image.

Luxury brands are gradually investing in the network by offering content that is very different from what they are used to publishing in traditional media.

-TikTok is now attracting other, older generations. The containment has had a direct impact on the platform’s attendance by targeting all age groups seeking entertainment.

-TikTok also allows brands to reach a community of engaged users. The features offered by the network, including challenges and other challenges, generate engagement, and offer a great opportunity for brands.

Where to find TikTok influencers and how to contact them?

Macro, micro, nano… Influencers are more and more numerous to create their TikTok accounts. As a brand, it is therefore not always easy to list potential influencers for your next Influencer Marketing campaign.

Of course, you can do your own monitoring and research, but it can be time-consuming and tedious. This is all the more true if you are new to TikTok…

Influencer Marketing’s technological solutions such as Kolsquare allow you to save precious time in order to focus on your core business.

They also have the advantage of helping you very quickly identify fake influencers and other malicious behavior on the networks (buying followers,…). Finally, the experts of these platforms are able to direct you towards TikTok influencers that are the most relevant for your brand.

Putting creative influencers first

The number of followers on TikTok shouldn’t be the only criterion to choose your future influencers partners.

On the social platform, it’s creativity that prevails above all else. The videos that are highlighted are those deemed the most entertaining and creative because they will generate the most reach and engagement.

Micro-influencers, therefore, have their rightful place, since it is above all the content created and published that prevails (versus the profile of the influencer itself, including the number of subscribers).

A creative influencer perfectly masters the main tools present on TikTok for more and more original videos:

  • The filters,
  • The effects,
  • Adding a soundtrack via the music library,
  • Video speed management.

The brand challenge for your product placements

TikTok is a preferred channel for product placement. The platform allows you to create your own brand challenge, especially to promote the launch of a new product.

Then simply invite users to participate in your challenge by using the hashtag you provide. The platform offers the possibility to sponsor your brand challenge in order to give it maximum visibility.

If we come back to the choice of the influencer, it is in this case essential to activate a K.O.L (Key Opinion Leader) who is comfortable with this type of functionality.

Collaborating with an influencer of choice will allow you to show users how to take up the challenge with brio and above all, it will boost the visibility of your challenge and therefore of your new product!
