Tik-Tok

The short video social media platform has taken the social network world by storm, and its market share is only supposed to keep growing. Tik-Tok is expected to reach 25% market share by 2024 while aiming to support up to 10-minute-long content soon. 

The UGC generated on platforms like Tik-Tok is also seen as much more credible than content from mainstream sources, like companies or influencers. According to Social Media 

Today, 93% of consumers believe user-generated content is very helpful when making a purchasing decision. More specifically, groups like millennials trust UGC 50% more than content generated by brands, according to DMNews. 

Untapped Resource 

According to DMNews as few as 16% of brands actually have a UGC strategy. This is relatively shocking when you take into account the fact that having a coherent strategy can save you the expense of a dedicated content producer ($72,000), according to Salesforce. 

User-generated content is, by every metric, more impactful than traditional brand content. It has the potential to boost engagement and shares exponentially, in a cost-effective way. The companies that take advantage of this lever will have a much bigger advantage over those that rely on more traditional methods of advertising.
