Are you on TikTok? Here’s who you should be following.
We spend a lot of our downtime (too much to admit) perusing content on TikTok, and finally took the leap and joined last year. To our surprise, 3.5 million people became completely fascinated by one of our videos in particular, showing off our guillotine (the machine that cuts your prints). We’re now 100% addicted to the app and love showing off some behind the scenes fun at Printed.com.
Associated with the latest dance crazes, there is also a place for people on TikTok who aren’t rhythmically inclined (phew). From BookTok to PlantTok, there is a neck of the TikTok woods for everyone to discover.
In particular, TikTok is changing the marketing landscape for small business owners and this is the side of TikTok we’re utterly obsessed with. Keep scrolling to discover 3 of our small business customers that we just can’t get enough of.
Mallows Beauty is a beauty brand based on real babes, real skin and real bodies. Founder, Laura Mallows first joined TikTok in 2020. Fast forward a few years and Mallows Beauty have an incredible 5.4 million likes on the app!
From behind the scenes in their warehouse to the oh-so satisfying videos of their face masks being made, we love watching this business grow.
Mallows Beauty Top Tip for TikTok:
Make sure your videos are short, snappy and you get the interest of the viewer straight away. Watch the video objectively and ask yourself would you be captured in the first few seconds?
Also be as transparent with your audience as possible. Especially if you’re a small business your audience wants to get to know you – the real you. They want to invest in you the founder, understand what your business stand for and keep tabs on your day to day progression. Both the good and the bad!
