TikTok, the new millionaire maker of 2020?

32 replies
Thanks to WF-Enzo for pointing out that TikTok was one of the most downloaded apps of the year.

And they have recently announced they plan to SUPPORT their contributors with a monetization of the platform and the content.

This is about as GROUND floor as it gets for Social Media, albeit, TikTok has had millions of viewers. But next year, a month from now...will we see the new PewDiePie emerge from the short videos of TikTok?

Let's keep an eye on it, and better yet, lets cash in.

Anyone else planning to use TikTok with their IM? (or already are?)

    If you are not currently using TikTok, how do you plan to use it next year with your IM?

    Do you believe the success of the app is sustainable or that it's something that will come and go?

      Belief? It will either evolve, like YouTube did, or die, like MySpace. One places his bet and takes his chances. Today, it is silly, even stupid and gross. But it is content, and as so many of you Warriors like to yell, Content is King.

      Transitioning the current platform into something useful, and monetizing it, depends on the creative person but the owners would like it to go that direction, and just as YouTube encouraged people long ago, to figure out how to monetize the platform, some marketers will be able to do it.

      The good is: SHORT brief content, doesn't take much time to develop. Could be serialized, branded, and attention getting even viral. Phone. No computer needed.

      The bad is, immature, a distraction for the masses, and as noted, even stupid.

      But if a marketer has a MESSAGE, and wants to get a message out, maybe a well thought out campaign on the platform, we'll have to wait and see.

      So, as someone pointed out, Real Estate is a stable thing, why not do a little 12-15 second video of your OPEN HOUSES for the week, a Realtor has to visit the house and can easily capture a few seconds of video on his cell, post it to the TikTok account, and down the road, people who are out looking for houses, could simply see what is Open near them. They can do that with Google Maps, but the use of the platform

      And whether or not it survives, or grows, or dies off has nothing to do with my opinion, I'm planning on TESTING, something my marketing background has taught me to be a prudent step. So, I'll test it. It will either work for me or it won't, all part of being a marketer I guess.

    Might want to wait while US national security checks it out. The US Navy has banned the app from its mobile devices.

    The people I follow are saying its a backdoor for China to access all of your mobile data.


    ...but people who have nothing to lose and have visions of sugarplum riches dancing in their heads don't care about those kinds of things, do they.

    Also, remember Periscope?

    I know Gary vee has been very hot on the TikTok app and telling people to jump on it. I think it really depends on your target audience and niche. Either way it should be interesting.

    I been looking at is as brand awareness regardless. I feel people shouldn't underestimate the youth as they do have a lot of power to influence whereas others tend to get too comfortable and too some degree stuck in their ways. If anything testing and trying out new social media platforms helps you evolve and ultimately a better marketer overall. As it was pointed out youth grow up and many events, experiences, and even memes come from things when we were younger. Many of the movies and tv shows are rebooted because we grew up with it and passed it down to our children. Yes, it is basically Vine but TikTok kinda brings that nostalgic feeling back.

    If you want to grow on TikTok study all the great profiles from the Vine era.

    Everything that made them stand out, will be what turns the new TikTok influencers into millionaires.

    My advice for anyone starting out:
    - Make quick relatable content with identifiable characteristics (for personal branding)
    - Post lots of content for rising topics/hashtags
    - Try to make direct collaborations with famous TikToks profiles in order to get access to their audiences

    War makes fortunes. That includes "cold" wars.

    The people I follow are saying its a backdoor for China to access all of your mobile data.
    If you believe your "data" is somehow secure you are naive or deluded.

    But there's something else marketers should know: TikTok is not saturated with advertisers yet. Not only are there few brands on the platform, but the influencer base is also virtually untouched.

    I want to say it will die like Vine or Snapchat but it really depends on how the company moves and how the CEO manages.

    That being said I'm not investing, it's not professional enough and the audience reminds me of Vine, which failed and I personally lost money with.

      Can you please inform me how it is the case that Snapchat died?

      https://www.statista.com/statistics/...pchat-app-dau/

      It seems to be trending upwards as far as 'daily active users' are concerned (and at an all-time high, additionally) as of Q3 2019, anyways.

    Tiktok has a huge userbase in asian countries, so campaigns targeting them could work.

    IT WON'T WORK UNLESS YOUR TARGET IS ASIAN MARKET.
    And even that... it's not promised.
    Actually it's the way how China bring Asian market moves far away from Western countries.
    Just my stupid opinion BTW.

    I'm sure this platform will see tremendous growth in the future. I read somewhere that at the moment a majority of its users are very young. So, it may not be a good money maker right now for those looking to sell affiliate products. However, in the future, it will most likely be very profitable as the user base expands.

    I see that TikTok has been growing its number every day with lots of new users coming in every age. This could be a good opportunity for internet marketers to tap this new audience as long as its in trend.

    However, I personally have not tried it yet.

    I love the part about cashing in on it. That's what marketers do; they spot a trend, add value to it, make money for the value-addition, and then jump on to the next wagon.

    Few though, myopic in nature, tend to exploit off a trend. They may do so in many ways, but common practice is to try n get more than you give.

    As marketers, I believe, we should be willing to do the opposite.

    TikTok is powerful and I'm afraid I haven't fully explored it yet, but reminders like these set you off in the right direction.
