Tiktok’s New Out of Phone Solutions: Taking Brands Beyond Mobile Screens

Blog_october 4

In the ever-evolving digital landscape, brands constantly seek innovative ways to reach their target audience. As one of the leading social media platforms, TikTok has already proven its prowess in engaging users through bite-sized, viral video content. But what if this engagement could move beyond the mobile screen? Enter TikTok’s "Out of Phone" ad solution, a groundbreaking initiative that aims to blend digital and real-world marketing.

TikTok Ventures Beyond the Mobile Screen

In a bold move, TikTok plans to take its platform's reach beyond the confines of mobile screens. The new Out of Phone ad solution will introduce TikTok's presence in various locations such as billboards, kiosks, cinemas, bars, restaurants, automobiles, airports, gas stations, retail stores, and more. This venture comes after TikTok's strategic partnership with GSTV, a renowned video network provider catering to fuel retailers.

Early Adopters and Successful Campaigns

Among the brands eager to explore this new frontier, L’Oréal's skincare brand, CeraVe, emerged as a pioneer. By partnering with Adomni, CeraVe seamlessly extended its TikTok advertising campaign, #CleanseLikeaDerm, to Out of Home (OOH) screens. A testament to the initiative's potential success was the broadcasting of the campaign, featuring brand TikToks and creator content, right in the heart of New York City - Times Square.

As eloquently put by Dan Page, TikTok’s global head of distribution for new screens, “With Out of Phone, we’re taking TikTok beyond the palm of our hands and into everyday life.”

A Seamless Transition to Extended Reach

One of the most tantalizing prospects of the Out of Phone solution is its ability to enable brands to start campaigns on TikTok, grow within the platform's dynamic communities, and then magnify their efforts on external platforms. The objective is clear: expanding reach and tapping into fresh audiences. This integrated approach has already piqued the interest of numerous brands, with several commencing their experimentation with the Out of Phone solution.

Highlighting a couple of the available options:

Out of Phone: Billboard — Brands can take their existing campaigns to new heights by broadcasting them on billboards worldwide.

Out of Phone: Cinema — Offering a unique cinematic experience, this option allows the replication of the on-platform experience onto cinema screens. Before the main event, audiences can be treated to a curated display of TikTok’s trending content, providing an advertising opportunity for brands to showcase alongside.

In Conclusion

TikTok's "Out of Phone" solutions mark a significant shift in how brands can engage with their audience. By bridging the gap between mobile content and the physical world, TikTok offers brands an unparalleled opportunity to amplify their campaigns and connect with a broader audience in their daily lives. Only time will tell how these innovative solutions will reshape the future of digital marketing, but the early signs point to a game-changing evolution.
