If you want marketers to spend on ads, help them out.

Cashiers cha-ching, are you listening: TikTok’s new 17-page holiday marketing guide provides some insights into which times are most engaging, events you shouldn’t miss, and more.
It also showcases TikTok’s ever-growing ads palette, and helps you decide when to use in-app creative tools. Sweet.

The guide talks about the buyers’ journey—how users switch apps, buy on different days, and lose trust in branded content—as well as customers’ “functional and emotional” needs. An interesting read for sure.
