Best Use of Audio on TikTok for Brands

TikTok has transformed the role of sound in social media.

Rather than it being an afterthought, for many, music has become the trigger point for the creative process. Creators will now seek out trending songs or sounds on TikTok, and make their content to suit, knowing that’s how it’ll be discovered.

That means that brands also need to consider their audio options in the app, and how they can align with the same trends. According to TikTok’s own research, 73% of users will “stop and look” at ads on TikTok with audio.

TikTok is a ‘sound on’ platform, and creating your campaigns with this in mind could end up defining your ultimate level of success in the app.
