What's Next: Shopping Trend Report
The What’s Next Trend Report is back! This time, we’re focusing on shopping and the incredible impact that building a loyal community can have on a brand’s business. With key trends, insights, and examples powered by creators and consumers, our What's Next: Shopping Trend Report provides turnkey content recommendations to inform how brands should engage their audience on TikTok when it comes to shopping.
Brand friendships are the key to driving repeat purchases on TikTok.
Driving brand loyalty is no longer just about being human. Brands on TikTok that act as friends - listening, speaking the community's lingo, adding value to their audiences' lives, and growing together - will grab shoppers' share of mind, heart, and wallet. Like any great relationship, the findings of the What's Next: Shopping Trend Report are broken down into three key 'Layers of Love': It’s a Match, Getting to Know You, Growing Together.
