You won’t want to miss her in-depth discussion on using the app, creating videos, and why you should jump in now as the platform grows.
TikTok is not just for your children. Over 50 million TikTok users are over the age of 18 and using the platform for a variety of reasons. Now is the time to jump in and take advantage of creating bite-sized pieces of content for your Amazon business. Paulina shares several ways you can do this.

Additionally, learn why you should go ahead and snag your user handle now, even if you don’t intend to start using the platform immediately.
The name of the game with TikTok is following trends and making sure that your initial hashtags are specific to your customer base. If you notice a certain piece of music is trending, use that music in your videos. If you notice a certain length is trending, keep your videos to that length. Then, once you’ve created your first videos, make sure that you properly research your hashtags.
The TikTok platform will take over the process of identifying your ideal customers. The algorithm is designed to show your videos to more people who are like your target audience. Make sure you create valuable content, like “how it’s made” style videos and walkthroughs of the factory or office, and then target the right people. TikTok does the rest.
