Not sure if you should try using TikTok to promote your business? Or maybe you’re already a TikToker but haven’t seen the results you hoped for when it comes to your leads and sales. See how local TikToker Kristen Thomas used the platform to gain thousands of followers and millions of views & likes that resulted in paid posts and oodles of free products, and more than doubling her revenue year over year. Join us to find out why businesses have quit creating original content on other social media sites and are sharing TikTok videos instead.

  • If TikTok is right for your business
  • The basics of posting videos on TikTok
