Over the past year, TikTok has secured its place as one of the most powerful advertising channels available to marketers. On the platform, ads play a unique role, seeking to integrate within the platform’s creative, community-minded spirit. This has resonated with audiences who have ranked TikTok number one when it comes to ad equity for the second year running.
Due to this, TikTok is making a strong case for a significant allocation of media investment, and marketers seem to be in agreement, with 3 out of every 4 stating they will be increasing their TikTok spend in 2022.
