Merchant development and management: You can ask for support with onboarding and merchant business development on TikTok Shop as well as Shop management and operations, customer services, and traffic support.
Studio, presenters, and content: Some TikTok Shop partners will offer your brand support with the production of content including presenter training. You can also work with your Shop partner to find creators that align with your brand and are clued up when it comes to filming, editing, and posting.
E-commerce strategy: As well as also providing support on supply chain logistics, you can utilize your TSPs expertise in content strategy, performance analysis and revenue, and revenue optimization.
In short – yes! If your brand offers a tangible product for consumers to purchase, there’s no reason why selling on TikTok Shop won’t work for you.
There are different TikTop Shop formats to explore, so there’s something for everyone:
Live Shopping: These are timed events, usually between 1 and 3 hours while consumers can make a purchase there and then in QVC style.
Shoppable Videos: These videos look like the typical organic creator content that you would expect to see when scrolling your FYP, except the inclusion of a shoppable link that allows you to purchase the product the creator is speaking about in-app means that audiences can return to these videos time and time again and purchase at any point.
Product Showcase: When someone clicks on your brand's TikTok account, they will have the option to explore your product showcase. They can then see all of your products, and the deals you may be offering, and add items to their cart.
Shop Tab: This is TikTok Shop’s newest feature. The tab titled ‘Shop’ appears as soon as you open the TikTok app and sits alongside the Explore, Following, and For You tabs. This page looks similar to a typical e-commerce marketplace and is full of brand recommendations based on the videos you interact with, and the latest deals.
Choosing to position your brand on TikTok gives you the opportunity to tap into a highly engaged community. Plus,
