From the creation of campaigns, payments, measurements or data analytics, these tools cover everything that any company needs to be able to create and optimize its campaigns successfully.
TikTok understands that each company has different needs, and offers brands a total flexibility, accessible through the TikTok Ads Manager platform, where they can manage and create their campaigns themselves. Through this tool, it is the companies themselves that decide how, when and how much budget they want to allocate to achieve their objectives, which can be brand awareness, consideration or traffic and conversion, providing a solution for all phases of funnel marketing . In fact, TikTok campaigns help small businesses shorten the conversion funnel.

Among the content and ad formats that SMEs can run, in-feed ads stand out, a format available for self-management through the TikTok platform for companies, characterized by appearing to users within the feed «For you», integrated between the different videos and with a duration of five to 60 seconds.
