Understand Your Audience

TikTok tends to be associated with Gen Z, and while they may be the dominant force, it’s worthwhile considering that older demographics are the biggest spenders here. Taking the UK as an example, 23.6% of Gen Z online beauty buyers shop at TikTok Shop, compared to only 9.7% of Gen X, but the average spend of the Gen Xers is 4% higher than their younger cohorts!

TikTok provides access to a range of audiences, but how can you ensure you reach the right audience for your product? That’s where the KOLs come in.

Leverage Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs)

Generally, users do not log into the TikTok platform with the intent of shopping (yet!), but the instant social commerce connection makes for a quick and easy purchase. KOLs can help you reach the right target audience. Collaborating with influencers who share your target audience and brand values can amplify your reach. These KOLs can introduce your products to their followers, creating a trusted connection that drives sales straight through to the TikTok Shop.

Low Price Points Only?

To date, the biggest successes have been with lower price point beauty brands. The TikTok model relies on quick, easy, impulsive decisions. When you reach the right audience, and their favourite influencer demos your product in action, it makes for an obvious, straightforward decision and seamless purchase through the shop. As users start to know and trust the shop platform, there will be room to increase price points as the perceived risk is removed. In fact, we are already seeing luxury brand reseller, Luxe Collective, selling pre-owned accessories through TikTok Shop with price points over £1000!
