Prioritize vertical videos
All video content should meet the recommended ad requirements. If not, TikTok will most likely not accept the ads. They may look skewed, or they may be cut off at the margins.
Limit video length
The best way to ensure the video ad content is not trimmed. Keep the length of the video between 9 and 15 seconds.
Start with impressive images
Understand that Internet users will be more than happy to swipe and scroll to the next post.
Organize all the key elements
TikTok typically obscures the outer edge of the frame. Therefore, it is best to keep all the important elements of your advertising centered. This should include your CTA (call to action) and brand name.
Add background music
TikTok must have sound settings turned on. They recommend adding background music clips and tracks the ad instead of adding a caption
Don’t forget the subtitles
Social media users who are happy to click may abandon the ad before it ends. You can write concise and informative narration, so viewers understand the important parts of your video. Even if they haven’t watched all the videos, TikTok recommends using local language for subtitles.
Include an interesting call to action
Investing in ads is useless if it doesn’t lead to tangible returns. Include a strong CTA in the form of native buttons prompting viewers to take action.
ByteDance Chinese Company will plan to relaunch the TikTok application in India in the name of the TickTock. It will be launched soon in the country. People are eagerly waiting for TikTok to come back to India.
