No primary category set

This Black Friday period will see SMBs highlighted by TikTok Shop UK, by spotlighting them and their products in a special Black Friday event which will run in the UK from the today until the 28th of November.

From hashtags like #AsSeenOnTikTok and #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt to #SmallBusiness, TikTok is fast becoming the go-to platform for discovering new small businesses and buying their products.

TikTok say that around three quarters (73%) of SMB marketers believe the platform has helped them reach new customers and a third (34%) of SMBs on the platform say that they have increased sales of their products or services as a direct result of advertising on the platform.

This Black Friday TikTok will see SMBs highlighted even more as they are promoted on LIVE streams throughout the week, helping them to be discovered by The TikTokcommunity. With data showing that almost 80% of people are likely to buy on social platforms if they’ve watched a LIVE or participated in conversational commerce, LIVE streams play a key role in driving engagement with products.

Each day from 21st until 28th November, SMBs from a range of verticals including beauty, home and leisure, fashion and electronics will feature on a dedicated Black Friday homepage when the community searches for Black Friday, TikTok Shop Sale or the #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt hashtag, with discounts of up to 50% available across selected products.

Small businesses including SumayahPink HoneyMadeByMitchellMaters And CoBaked In and Wax And Unwind will be featured prominently through an in-app H5, and have particular products highlighted on vertical-specific days. A whole host of discounted products will be available to purchase entirely on-platform via TikTok Shop, ranging from Made By Mitchell’s Blursh Liquid Blusher to Uten’s Airfryer.

TikTok Shop is a great place for SMBs to thrive, as our creative tools make it easy to quickly create fun, authentic and engaging content which drives real world results for merchants of all sizes, and our seamlesscheckout experience means our Community can watch entertaining content and make purchases without ever leaving the platform.

Part of the joy of shopping on TikTok is in discovering products and trends which you may not have otherwise found, and we’re proud that merchants and creators are able to find so much success on the platform, regardless of size. We’re excited to continue helping SMBs and empowering our Community’s discovery of trending products, creators and more.
