Social media is now just as much about entertainment as it is about social connection, as the rise of TikTok attests. Its users now spend more than an hour a day on the platform, seeking out both short and longer form content. TikTok is home to self-made creatives in music, dance, comedy, writing, news reading and more – and for brands to find their place on the platform, it’s essential to know what kind of content is resonating, and why.

People are fatigued from competing for attention on social media. They feel tired of having to look perfect, even on vacation. They’re not posting photos anymore, keeping their memories only for themselves.

Campaigns in partnership with AAA game titles can take years to create and seven figure budgets. In a time of economic uncertainty, very few brands can afford to throw down that amount of cash just to play the game.

What some brands fail to realise is that there are levels to play and multiple ways to win in gaming. You don’t have to engage with AAA games to win, and you don’t need to spend a fortune either. You just need to find the right community that works for you and commit to growing that relationship and flourishing together.
