Designing Your Ads

When designing your ads, you’ll want to keep in mind some of TikTok’s trends. The platform is known for its “challenges” - a tagged piece of viral content, usually in the form of pranks, dances, or performances to a specific song. Certain categories also do very well on TikTok, such as comedy, dancing, beauty, and animals. You’ll want to keep your creative short and aligned with one of these popular categories, if possible.

How do I start?
