TikTok is Throwing a ‘Block Party’ For Small Business Owners
Though more of us are venturing away from our computer screens, TikTok remains one of the most popular tools for creators who want to share content at home or on the go. The social video network has spent the past year emphasizes its focus on small business owners and next month, they’ll up the ante once again with the first ever Small Biz Block Party.
The 20-part series, which will kick off with an August 5 event co-hosted by the non-profit Main Street America, is designed to help small businesses of all sizes thrive in the next phase of post-pandemic recovery. Those who RSVP can look forward to mastering all there is to know about TikTok; including how to create dynamic content, effectively engage with their TikTok audience, and measure progress.
“Businesses of all sizes are using the magic of the TikTok community to reach new audiences and expand their business — whether it’s a startup or an iconic local business,” said Becca Sawyer, TikTok’s Global Head of SMB. “Our goal is to give every business owner in America the same opportunities as the biggest brands and to help them turn their dreams into a reality.”
