About Top Feed for Reach & Frequency Campaigns

Before getting started: Reach & Frequency is currently only available to qualified customers. Please contact your sales representative for more information.

Reach & Frequency (R&F) is a campaign buying type on TikTok Ads Manager that lets you control the audiences you reach, and the number of times they are exposed to your ad messaging before delivery. You can gain even greater control of your ads with Top Feed, a feed type exclusive to Reach & Frequency.

What is Top Feed

Top Feed is a Feed Type option for Reach & Frequency campaigns that lets you control when your ad appears in someone's TikTok feed. When you enable Top Feed, your ad will occupy the first in-feed ad slot that appears on someone's TikTok feed when they open the app.

Why choose Top Feed

Top Feed is a great way to generate mass awareness. This Feed Type places ads in a premium position to help grab your audience's attention.

Top Feed ads come with distinct advantages over other positions in the feed, which can help you:

  • ​Create a memorable and lasting impression.

  • ​Gain a new level of control over your campaigns.

    • ​Leverage R&F's ability to optimize reach and customize frequency.


  • ​Currently, Top Feed is only available for Reach & Frequency campaigns.

  • ​TopView (the open screen product) shows as the earliest ad slot when users open the app.
