Introduction to TikTok Ads

With more than 1 billion monthly active users worldwide and an estimated $4.6 billion in revenue, Tiktok has become the most popular short-form video platform today. With a mission to ‘inspire creativity and bring joy’, the app has successfully carved out a niche among its users, especially GenZ. With such fascinating stats, TikTok automatically becomes the best choice for advertisers too. As per reports, TikTok ads will generate $11.64 billion in revenue by the end of 2022. Contrary to general perception, TikTok users actually like ads shown on the platform and they generally have positive reviews regarding the ads such as, ‘fun & engaging’ and ‘trendsetting.’ Furthermore, the platform also supports different ad formats for the advertisers to choose from, as per their target audience and requirements.

Types of TikTok ads-

In TikTok, advertisers have a variety of ad options to choose from, and each one has its own advantages. The different options are:

  • In-feed ads: These ads are probably the most liked ones. The user's "for you" area offers in-feed advertisements that autoplay and let users like, comment, and share content.
  • Top-view ads: Users can interact with these Top-view ads just like they can with in-feed ads as they are displayed at the top of the user’s feed.
  • Brand takeover ads: The takeover ads, which can take the shape of a video or an image, are only displayed to the user once, and on full-screen.
  • Branded hashtag challenge: Tiktok features user-generated content in branded hashtag challenge at 3 different locations. The challenge's own landing page comes last, followed by in-featured banners on the discover page, and in the user’s in-feed.
  • Branded effects: The advertisers can apply branded effects on their own or in conjunction with the hashtag challenge. A variety of filters, stickers, and other effects are included.
