People have been talking about the value of Tik Tok for quite some time now so we decided to jump on and check it out for ourselves. Here’s what we discovered…
There is a whole lot more people than just rachet 16 year old girls dancing on TikTok. Businesses are actively building audiences and telling stories about their company.
You can have a link back to Instagram, Youtube, and URL (on certain profiles-it’s still getting rolled out in BETA). This is important for converting your TikTok traffic into $$

They don’t know how to practically tell their stories on TikTok
They don‘t know how to convert the attention into cash
Over the next few weeks we’ll be exploring these topics so that together we can leverage his emerging platform for our success!
