TikTok, once the new kid on the block, is now undeniably the most coveted social media platform for brands to engage with. The endless creative discovery is what makes TikTok so powerful and appealing to businesses who want to be discovered in a native, more organic way.

  • 67% want a variety of different storytelling approaches from brands.

Spark Ads look almost the same as ‘regular’ content

TikTok’s Spark Ads are deliberately designed to look like TikToks – that’s what makes them so good. The username, profile pic, and music tracks are the same as a regular in-feed video. The caption still displays under the creator’s username, except for a small ‘Sponsored’ label above the music track and a Download button. The viewer can click on the button and be taken to your brand campaign landing page, which you create during the ad setup process.

Hit it big time with proper planning

Spark Ads need to be engaging so that they’ll appear authentic. When users thumb through the app the experience should be seamless with the Spark Ad having the same energy and vibe as all their other in-feed TikToks.

Here are 6 key attributes that top-performing Spark Ads have in common:

  1. Stories that carry positive undertones and are lighthearted.
  2. Entertaining and fun ways that demonstrate how a product is used.
  3. Catchy soundtracks that tell the story.
  4. Utilizing new trending effects, editing styles, or storylines.
  5. Concise and informative text overlays.
  6. Direct dialogue with the audience when demonstrating product features.
