Luxury brands have long been associated with successful marketing efforts. In particular, luxury brands are often early adopters of technology and use it to connect with customers in new and innovative ways. This is evident in their use of social media platforms such as Snapchat, Instagram, and now TikTok.
TikTok offers a unique opportunity for luxury brands to reach a Gen-Z audience that is highly coveted but often difficult to engage.
The short-form nature of the content on TikTok makes it perfect for delivering quick, impactful messages that capture attention span within the app’s scrolling feed. Additionally, the platform’s focus on creative content gives luxury marketers a chance to show off their products and services in delightful and unexpected ways.
Here are three unique ways luxury brands can leverage TikTok marketing to engage Gen-Z audiences:
Use creative storytelling to showcase your brand’s unique identity
On TikTok, creative expression is key. Luxury brands can use this to their advantage by crafting engaging stories that showcase their unique identity and position within the market landscape.
These stories should be designed to capture attention and stop scrollers in their tracks; using strong visuals, interesting sound effects, or clever copywriting can all help achieve this goal.
Use influencers to reach new audiences
Influencer marketing is a powerful tool that can be used to reach new audiences on TikTok. Luxury brands can identify macro- or micro-influencers who align with their brand identity and values and work with them to create sponsored content that will be seen by their followers.
These types of content should be authentic and organic, in order to avoid coming across as inauthentic or salesy.
Take advantage of shoppable posts: TikTok recently rolled out shoppable posts, which allow users to purchase products without leaving the app. This is a great opportunity for luxury brands to showcase their products and make it easy for viewers to make a purchase if they’re interested.
When creating shoppable posts, it’s important to include clear product information and pricing, as well as attractive visuals that highlight the product’s features.
