📰 The News You Missed
TikTok Is The Newly-Crowned New King Of Product Discovery
TikTok is a strong driver of purchase intent. If #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt has taught us anything, it’s that a seemingly random assortment of products, from yoga pants to carpet cleaners to ranch dressing, can quickly go viral and lead to sales. TikTok’s strength in discovery is powered by its algorithm, which surfaces relevant and entertaining content to users on the main, personalized “For You” feed. Those videos often feature products, including items that a user never considered before seeing it in the feed.
People who shop on TikTok browse and buy goods more frequently than shoppers on other social platforms. More than one-fifth of TikTok shoppers worldwide said they bought goods on TikTok “all of the time,” ahead of all other platforms measured, per the January 2022 Bazaarvoice survey. The study didn’t indicate where those purchases were completed, however. | via // emarketer.com
