Where can you find one of Gen Z nowadays?

On TikTok!

Funny, informal, and absolutely addictive, this app is teen’s latest social phenomenon.

We saw this coming.

Formerly known as Musical.ly, Tik Tok has become one of the most popular free apps with massive adoption worldwide shaking the throne of Snapchat and Instagram, especially in Asia and India.

And we are not surprised it’s trending. 

This app presented an alternative version for sharing video content online and expressing yourself in a creative way.

It allows you to create and share short videos (from 5 up to 60 seconds) and edit them with plenty of filters or featured music as a background.

As I am writing this, the popularity of TikTok is spreading rapidly.

Check out the numbers:

Meanwhile, users spend an average of 52 minutes per day browsing the app or creating videos.

This is just another reminder that should sparkle the curiosity of brands to use TikTok popularity and promote their products and services, especially if young people are your target audience.

TikTok popularity isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. 

This is why we will show you how you can embed TikTok videos on any website builder and make the most of this platform.

Are you ready?

Why should you embed TikTok videos on your website?

If you are a TikTok video creator – congratulations!

You are part of an enormous community that focuses on creativity and encouraging young people to be themselves.

If you are ‘‘in it to win it’’ – you might consider sharing TikTok videos on your website.

We believe that the following reasons will motivate you to jump into action:

Reason 1: Collect UGC to improve your brand visibility

In a world where younger consumers are skeptical of ads, TikTok videos can be a great way to create a strong social proof on your website and show visitors how people use your brand.

Reason 2: Improves user experience and SEO metrics

Increased time on site, lower bounce rate, higher CTR are some of the SEO benefits you can expect to add TikTok videos on your website.

Reason 3: Saves time and space uploading videos

When embedding TikTok videos, you will save time and a lot of space and resources from your hosted server.  Instead, videos are played from the primary source (TikTok platform). This means that you don’t need to re-upload the video on your website additionally. 

Okay, now that you are familiar with TikTok video’s advantages, let’s dive into how to embed TikTok videos on any website (step-by-step).

How to embed a TikTok video on your website?

Before you proceed, make sure that your TikTok app is downloaded from respective app stores.

For Android users that would be PlayStore and iTunes for iPhone iOS users.

Once embedded on your web page, the video will be displayed along with attributions such as video creator, video description, and the background original sound. 

It will also link back to the same video on the TikTok app.

Please note: If a video is removed from the TikTok app, the same video embedded on a website, will no longer be available too.

Wrap up

A lot has happened since TikTok crashed the social media platforms party in 2016. 

Although TikTok is becoming a more attractive platform for users, it is still an uncharted territory when it comes to marketing (have in mind that the app has just begun with the paid advertising option). 

Luckily, this may be your golden opportunity to catch the wave and skyrocket your brand using TikTok, especially after the Covid-19 crisis will take its toll.

Happy embedding!
