We’ve all heard about TikTok being a key player in the social media world, but how do we actually leverage that platform as a brand? In this episode, Katie McKiever, an award-winning social media and thought leadership consultant, is here to share her expertise on how TikTok has changed video marketing, how to leverage short-form video and influencer marketing, and the next big thing in social media.

Some of the key takeaways include: 

  • Platforms like TikTok have flipped traditional marketing to focus on authenticity, vulnerability, and behind the scenes content, rather than polished advertisements.
  • Don’t put all your social media eggs in one basket. You should be present on multiple platforms, and you should have an email list to market directly to your leads as well.
  • To stretch your resources, you can make your internal employees the face of your brand and have them share their expertise and behind the scenes on video.
