IV. Unlocking Lower Funnel Success and the Power of Commerce on TikTok (11:05-11:45am)
TikTok is traditionally thought of as an upper funnel platform, but through scientifically-backed research, the Global & North America Research & Insights team has proven that TikTok can drive lower funnel outcomes for businesses of all types across many different campaign goals. Thanks to its ability to keep users engaged throughout the consumer journey, TikTok not only provides infinite opportunities to drive discovery and engagement, but also fuels conversions.

One of the solutions TikTok has for brands that helps drive lower funnel outcomes is TikTok Shop, and this session will hone in on how brands can maximize impact by showing up in a more "shoppable way" on TikTok. The research featured explores the closed-loop ecosystem, guiding advertisers on the benefits of adopting TikTok Shop and reasons to enhance their existing strategy with additional investment.
