TikTok leads Amazon shopping

TikTok’s relationship with Amazon has grown closer as new ways of shopping emerge.

On TikTok, the hashtag #BestAmazonFinds (“Best Amazon Search”) has more than 14.1 billion views, while the hashtag #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt (“TikTok made me buy it”) has more than 41 million views in August billion views.

At the same time, the popularity of TikTok short videos has largely boosted product sales on Amazon’s platform.

Take beauty products, for example. According to media statistics, from Revlon’s One-Step hair dryer brush to Paula’s Choice BHA exfoliator, TikTok’s most popular products are among the top beauty sellers on Amazon.

Among them, the One-Step brush first became popular on the TikTok platform in February last year, and has gradually developed into the mainstay of TikTok beauty.

This spring, One-Step brushes became popular again driven by makeup artist bloggers. Amazon’s sales in March and April increased by 53.58% and 64.52% respectively month-on-month. to 116.69%.

A large number of data and cases prove that TikTok is no longer simply regarded as a short video platform, and the viral short video spread is leading the shopping trend on Amazon.

It is said that eating the first crab is the most fragrant, so grasp the trend and seize the potential business opportunities one step ahead of others, and then you may become the “first person to eat crabs”.

The second is promotion.

Amazon’s Influencer Program allows select TikTokers to drive traffic and earn commissions by linking to their personal Amazon “storefront” (i.e. referral homepage) in their bio. Based on this, sellers can find bloggers or opinion leaders in their respective fields to cooperate and strengthen diversion.

For some sellers who cherish their brands, putting short videos on TikTok can also play a role in brand maintenance.

In any case, China is the “origin” of TikTok, and it is easier for Chinese sellers to understand the various modes of operation on TikTok. It is a pity not to take advantage of such a “unique” advantage.
