Blog_august 5

TikTok - the app that had us all hooked with its snazzy dances and hilarious challenges. From your niece's lip-syncing videos to that unexpected rabbit hole of DIY crafts at 3 AM, it's the platform where time flies. And guess what? It's also the perfect place for businesses to make their mark. If you're not already capitalizing on TikTok's vast audience, you're missing out on an incredibly potent advertising platform.

Lucky for you, TikTok has just released a fabulous guide for advertisers. Sneeze It is here, as always, to serve it up with a sprinkle of fun and a dash of wisdom. Let's dive in! 

Choose Your Objective: The Why Behind Your TikTok Campaign

Before you even think of filming your first 15-second masterpiece, ask yourself: "Why am I doing this?" Your campaign objective is the compass that will guide your creative process and help measure success. TikTok, being the considerate platform it is, offers a bouquet of objectives:

Brand Awareness: If you're looking to become the talk of the digital town.

Video Views: For when you want those eyeballs glued to your content.

Traffic: Perfect if you're aiming to direct TikTokers to your website.

App Installs: If you want users to download your app.

Lead Generation: For gathering potential customer details.

Conversions: When you're targeting a specific action like sales or sign-ups.

Which Objective is Best for My Campaign?

To decide on the perfect objective, consider your end game:

Want to launch a new brand? Go with Brand Awareness.

Promoting a new product video? Opt for Video Views.

Have an online sale? Traffic or Conversions will be your best friends.

Launching a new app? You guessed it, App Installs it is!

Remember, your objective should resonate with your brand's current goals. Don't aim for conversions when you're introducing your brand to a new audience. Play the long game!

Budget Setting: Making Every Penny Count

Ah, the age-old dilemma of how much to spend! With TikTok's flexible budget settings, you can:

  • Set a daily or total budget: Depending on the campaign's duration.
  • Adjust as you go:If you notice those views racking up, don't be shy to invest a tad more.
  • Limit your ad's frequency: Avoid being that brand that pops up every two seconds and annoys users.

A pro-tip from us? Start with a modest budget, test different content, and see what resonates. Once you hit the sweet spot, increase that budget and ride the wave.
