Flowers and Plants on TikTok

If you're looking for marketing opportunities for your business, it's time to dive into the wondrous world of endless short videos on TikTok. It is the hottest new social media app with more than 2.6 billion downloads and more than 1 billion monthly active users. Yes, you've read that right; 1 billion active users(!) This means the platform has become just as big as Facebook and Instagram. Flowers and Plants on TikTok Are Totally a Thing ThursdTok

One Billion Monthly Users

TikTok consists of 15-seconds to 3-minute recorded videos. You can cleverly edit your videos in the app and integrate them with other major social media platforms. While the largest audience on TikTok is users between the ages of 16 and 24, the app has continually evolved over the last three years. Because TikTok perfectly lends itself for brands to engage with their (potential) customers, it is a great and creative way to reach new markets. If your brand’s target audience includes anyone between the ages of 13 and 60, you should be on TikTok right now.

More Than Gen Z Dancing Videos

You may be a bit hesitant to download the app because of the millions of dance challenges and influencer videos you see reaching other media platforms but TikTok is so much more than Gen Z teens twerking to the latest hits. So how do flowers and plants fit into it? A great example is Romanian floral designer Alina Neacsa from Flori Cu Fitze who has steadily been building her audience on the social platform through showcasing her work, sharing her expertise, and by taking her followers on personal journeys, cleverly combining business with personal aspects.

Indulge and explore before you start uploading your own videos. When you join a new social media platform, you may not know what you’re doing immediately and that's okay.
