A mobile marketer should have quick adaptation as a behavioural aptitude. Although Google and Facebook are standard marketing channels, they will let you miss a lot if not open to other media.

The sudden surge of platform changes the whole game, and the best example is TikTok’s success. Its growth was crazy as it was listed first in-app downloads and second in consumer spending. Compared to 2020, it grew by 325% (App Anime) and 115 downloads ( Influencer Marketing Hub).

As TikTok was popular among GenZ, a decrease can be seen as the older generation embraced the app. The trend is not going anywhere, and therefore the platform has great advertising potential. They allow advertisers to approach the users in original and user-centric ways, making it more than an ad platform.

An example of the brand which utilized TikTok entirely is Red Bull. Using #givesyouwinggs, it made use of a short video format for an adrenaline-filled video. From inviting users to show their stunts to playing their advertisements, it perfectly blended with the audience.

Therefore utilizing new platforms with tailored creatives is the best way to increase your audience and brand approach, only if it is done before competitors.
