But did you know that you can earn money with this app? Did you like the news? Want to know how? So I invite you to read the entire article below!

Merger between TikTok and Musical.ly

In mid-August 2018, the Musical.ly dub application was purchased by ByteDance, owner of the existing TikTok, in a operation that cost US$ 1 billion.
After this transition, the two services were merged and the TikTok name was maintained, with the aim of becoming the main short video application worldwide and, at the time of the transaction, Musical.ly reached the 100 million mark of monthly active users.
Users of the old platform were migrated to the new application, without the need for a new profile, but the new version was redesigned and gained new video editing features, with the aim of instigating the public’s creativity through the videos. p>


TikTok in numbers

After the merger, app downloads grew by 20%, making TikTok reach the milestone of 130 million users in October, ahead of famous social networks such as Instagram, Facebook, Youtube and Snapchat in the United States and making a brief comparison, in the same period, Snapchat lost users and Twitter maintained its asset base.
In China, the highlight is that almost 9% of all users’ online time is dedicated to the app’s videos and more than a third of the 1.4 billion Chinese, the largest population in the world, are active in short video apps , and Tik Tok, called Douyin there, is a favorite among people of all ages, even the elderly.
The rapid growth can be attributed to the intense investment in advertising for the service, after all, ByteDance, the most valuable startup in the world, with a market value of US$ 75 billion, significantly added to the expenses aimed at publicizing the application, using various means ads.
With this competitor’s rapid growth, Facebook would be developing a direct competitor, called “Lasso”, the application would be an independent continuation of Lyp Sync Live, aimed at teenagers and which allows, like the other, to record short videos and apply dubbing resources.
In our country, profiles of celebrities such as Whindersson Nunes and Tirullipa, well known on YouTube and Instagram, reach the mark of 200,000 fans on Tik Tok and their publications exceed 500,000 likes, here called “hearts”. br />It is observed that the numbers of the application are outstanding and its use proves to be very fun and wide and with the passage of time TikTok has been gaining space in the market, facing strong competitors such as Facebook and Instagram, but its success, however, has its main origin in an effective business strategy.

TikTok’s business strategy

During the merger, ByteDance had clear goals, which revolved around numbers: 500 million active users and its proposal was to reach that mark to then recover all the investment obtained and start to profit from the application.
The passage seems open for this, since the number of downloads of the application does not stop rising every day and in the month of December 2018 alone, TikTok was downloaded by 75 million users, which was a record.
Currently, total installations on smartphones have already reached 1 billion and this was the seal that ByteDance needed to start the project of profitability with the application.

How does TikTok monetization work?

Even though it’s free, TikTok has ample monetization possibilities, and that’s why there was this whole fusion movement.
The main way to profit from the application is through advertising, as from December 2018, ads have started to be tested in the application and users have already seen campaigns from companies of all kinds.
Let’s face it, a large base of active users and impressive numbers of downloads are ideal for attracting advertisers to TikTok, however, the application took care to maintain segmented advertising, that is, that really interests users.
And because it has a younger audience, the space was intended more for companies that offer products and services suitable for this age group.
What you probably didn’t know is that before the ads, however, there was already a way to monetize, because as there are several profiles of artists in the beginning of their careers, the application allowed donations from followers and in this opportunity, the way to profit was to stay with a percentage of the money that was passed on to celebrities.

How does TikTok work?

TikTok is very similar to the idea of ​​the old Musical.ly: stimulating the creativity of musicians, allowing them to perform in front of the smartphone camera through video content.
However, the changes brought several editing possibilities, in addition to functions such as dubbing and many other ways of generating content and the application itself offers a collection of songs that can be dubbed by users, which makes using it very fun.
Having been on the platform for some time, many of these people have already become quite popular with millions of followers and this feature brings the application closer to other social networks, and this new format was ideal for the growth of the application.
There are also already seen and explored functions to gain followers on Instagram, such as filters, stickers and a series of other editing functions, and together, these elements provide users with the necessary tools to explore creativity.
Usage goes beyond voiceovers and music, with all sorts of fun content being aimed at a young audience that picks up very easily.
