3. TikTok reveals insights for the retail business

TikTok shared a new report on how retail brands can convert their efforts on the social platform.

“By listening to the TikTok community, we meet users where they want to be met, and it’s not in the funnel. Rather, it is an infinite loop with no start or end point, and it empowers brands to establish more meaningful relationships with consumers that result in communities of brand loyalists, repeat purchases, and greater spending.” – TikTok

The brand new world of Meta has been met with excitement and criticism. Are you ready to take the virtual plunge?

This video ad from Meta kinda gives me the heebie jeebies, but if you’ve ever been a fan of Five Nights at Freddy’s, you’re going to love it.

That’s why the brand strategy experts at Twitter Next conducted first-of-its-kind research about people’s attitudes on Twitter – analyzing thousands of Tweets from the world’s most iconic brands and conducting tests and surveys in eight countries – and what that means for the evolution of brand behavior.” – Twitter
