I spent two months making TikTok’s; Learnings of a typical tattooed millennial marketer

TikTok is the leading destination for short-form mobile video. Their mission is to inspire creativity and bring joy.

What helps TikTok stand out among the competition is that it’s more of an entertainment platform, instead of a lifestyle platform. And what makes it so attractive is that practically anyone can become a content provider because of the simplicity of using the app. That’s why it appeals to so many content creators around the world.

I spent two months making TikTok's and having a little fun in a bid to learn more about how the platform operates and figure out just what the hell the attraction is. Ahead of a marketing conference I dug into the data and decided to do a mini-investigation for myself.

If you haven’t been paying attention to TikTok … You haven’t been paying attention.
