But now it’s once again attracting brands and startups advertisement looking to reach a young audience.
The short videos app became a popular choice for advertisers and digital marketers last year, thanks to its reach.
The company, which currently has 120 Mn users, had announced an TikTok advertisements pilot in India during November last year at Ad:tech Mumbai.
According to reports, one of the first brands to utilise the platform was fashion ecommerce platform Voonik. That move was followed by the likes of Pepsi, and Myntra, ShopClues, Snapdeal.
Eventually, TikTok also attracted ads from edtech startups Cuemath, Masterclass, video streaming companies Voot and Viu, hyperlocal delivery company Dunzo, dating service TanTan, social commerce platform Meesho and even fellow short video social network Vigo.
“User Generated Content (UGC) has become the new point of entry for first time-internet users in India making it the highest data consumer in the world,” said Sachin Sharma, Head, Ad Sales and Customer Support, ByteDance India.Indi
