The Harris Poll has released a report entitled “The Next Frontier: Striking Gold on TikTok,” and it’s rich with insights that can help brands craft an effective strategy for the platform. A few surprising revelations may change the way that marketers perceive the app’s audience, and adapt in order to communicate with them best. First and foremost, many people know the platform for dancing and lip-syncing, but only 36% of TikTok users follow accounts that create such content. Instead, comedy is king, attracting 71% of all users: the report states, “With Gen Z leading the way, it’s laughter, not music, that now drives TikTok’s growing user base.” Another interesting insight to note is that while the platform is typically associated with Gen Z, it’s actually millennials who drive the most purchasing power: 57% of millennials on the app purchased something featured on TikTok, as opposed to 38% of Gen Z users. And finally, 47% of all users have purchased something based on an influencer’s recommendation—once again demonstrating the value in partnering with conversation leaders to make an impact.
