TikTok has shared the second installment of its ‘’Path-to-Purchase’ Report, which takes a deeper dive into how TikTok clips drive consumer action, and the key elements that improve marketing performance in the app.
The first part of the report, which TikTok published back in February, looked at how TikTok users discover and engage with brands via the app.
This second summary looks at how TikTok users feel about product promotions in their feed, and the products that they buy as a result of TikTok promotions.
According to the data, which was gathered by market research provider Material, 50% of TikTok users report feeling ‘joyful, excited, or happy’ about the products they’ve purchased via the app, while TikTok users are significantly more likely to recommend products that they find in their feed.
Celebrity and creator endorsements play a key role in this, with TikTok also noting that:
“The TikTok audience is 48% more likely to discover new brands or products from celebrities or public figures, 25% more likely to discover them through creators, and 23% more likely to discover them through trending topics or hashtags than on other platforms. They’re also 15% more likely to use TikTok to research new brands or products – and a full 55% of TikTok users do so.”
So celebrity endorsements are a big winner – as they are on every platform – but partnering with creators can also have major discovery potential in the app.
That likely aligns with the more organic approach to promotions within the app, and how TikTok users engage with content. Indeed, TikTok ads expert Savannah Sanchez recently noted that she’s seen far worse performance with TikTok ads that utilize interactive display cards on screen, because those more overt promotional approaches are not as welcome in the app.
That’s not to say that they won’t work at all, but it’s interesting to note that ads that are more organic, native-looking TikTok clips generally perform better in the app.
Also, worth taking note of the point on hashtags here. On other platforms, hashtags seem to be losing their shine, but TikTok users are still discovering content via tags in the app.
The data also shows that 58% of TikTok users report discovering new brands and products on the platform, while 47% of TikTok users also look to convince others to buy products that they find in the app – with 49% making overt recommendations based on TikTok promotions
The research also shows that over half of TikTok users look for details about where to buy products that they’ve seen on the platform, which is 84% above traditional social apps.
So the platform’s influence extends beyond the app itself, which is another note to consider in your TikTok performance tracking.
These are some interesting insights, which underline the evolving value of TikTok as a product discovery and promotion tool, and it may well be worth factoring in these data points when measuring your own TikTok campaigns.
Clearly, there’s significant brand value here, but the best campaigns, at least based on these stats, utilize organic looking content, from established creators, which can fuel big awareness effects, both on and off platform.

Twitter Shares Insights into How Users and Brands Engage in Core Issues Around Identity [Infographic]
Research has shown that Gen Z consumers are increasingly looking to spend with brands that take a stand on social issues, with social media platforms providing a means for businesses to connect with their respective brand communities, and use their voice to support relevant causes and movements.
That directly relates to identity, and how people choose to align on political and cultural issues, and it’s important that brands consider how their core messaging, and subsequent actions, support their beliefs and stances, in various ways.
To glean more insight into this, Twitter recently partnered with OMG Research to explore how conversations related to identity are being conducted via tweet.
As per Twitter:
“When it comes to serious matters, such as racial justice, gender equality, and climate change, people on Twitter not only welcome brands into these conversations but expect them to speak up on behalf of their followers and others who share their values.”
Again, the advent of social media has changed the way that brands connect, which has also changed consumer expectations around what they share, and how they act in support.
An important consideration for all brands – check out Twitter’s insights below.
