IMRO Music Industry Webinar | TikTok Ecosystem

Though TikTok has only been around for a few years, it is the social platform that’s on everyone’s lips, boasting more than 2bn app downloads, spawning viral hits and being the launchpad for new artists. This module explains everything you need to know in order to understand how the app works, how it’s evolving and how to best engage with its culture and audience. We will also look at why TikTok has such a big impact on the music industry and what the platform’s ambitions in the music space are as well as looking at opportunities, and challenges. We’re also interested in where audiences might go next – so we’ll present you with an overview of other platforms that are incorporating short-form video and music and have the potential to directly compete with TikTok. This module looks beyond the hype and tries to provide a deeper understanding of the TikTok ecosystem, forming the basis for the follow-up module TikTok Best Practice.

Date: Wednesday 16th June
Time: 3:00pm – 4:30pm

IMRO Music Industry Webinar |
TikTok Best Practice

TikTok is the social platform that’s on everyone’s lips, having grown incredibly quickly in recent years and spawning viral hits like ‘Old Town Road’, ‘Lottery (Renegade)’ and ‘Say So’. Whilst our ‘TikTok Ecosystem’ module was designed to provide an understanding of the overall TikTok app, its culture and how it impacts the music industry, this ‘TikTok Best Practice’ module will now look much deeper into how artists and their teams can actually use the platform for their marketing efforts.

We will start by looking at overall digital strategy and organic marketing techniques, from profile optimisation and posting strategy to features like live-streaming and e-commerce. We will also discuss how to collaborate with influencers to amplify campaigns and look at the opportunities within TikTok Ads. In our final section, we will present some real-life campaign examples which utilise different approaches including organic and paid campaigns, live and on-platform marketing partnerships.

Date: Wednesday 23rd June
Time: 3:00pm – 4:30pm
