How to start using TikTok Ads to supercharge your e-commerce business

Today I'm going to show you how to start using TikTok ads to supercharge your e-commerce business. These are the must-dos when you're first starting with TikTok Ads.

Well, before I dive into how, I wanted to first let you know that this video is sponsored by no other than TikTok. But what's funny is I would've created it either way so you can copy my results.

Spark Ads:
TikTok Ads Manager:
TikTok pixel:

First, make sure you're spending enough to see results. Daily budget is a maximum amount you will allow your campaign or ad group to spend per day. And it's a great tool for cost control while you're testing out TikTok ads. Start with at least $30 USD minimum daily for your budget, or whatever your local currency equivalent is. This amount gives the algorithm enough to learn who your ideal audience is, and get optimal results early.

TikTok focuses on short form video, which can be different from other platforms that you're running ads off. But don't be intimidated. Spark Ads is the best way to get started with ad creative. Spark Ads are an ad format that allow you to transform existing TikTok videos into paid ads on the For You feed. You can use existing TikToks on your own account, or TikToks made by other creators with their approval. The beauty of Spark Ads is that they look like regular organic TikTok videos, which means they generally perform better.

Next, let's talk about using signals and TikTok Ads Manager. What are signals and why are they important? Signals are customer interactions with your brand. Anything from viewing your video to visiting your website to even purchasing your product. These interactions are especially valuable when they're matched to a TikTok user. Because it helps you attribute more conversions, reach more people, and deliver ads more effectively.

Installing TikTok's Pixel is a key to unlocking more signals. The Pixel is a tool added to your website to automatically share web visitors signals. With Pixel, you can find new customers, optimize campaigns, and effectively measure ad performance. Simply put, you'll be able to make more informed decisions on how to get more customers who are making purchases more frequently.

To get signals ready, just follow these steps after you've created a TikTok Ads Manager account.

One, set up the TikTok pixel.
Two, set up at least three events to capture the full customer journey. I highly suggest view content, add to cart, and complete payment.
Three, toggle on automatic advance matching.
Four, make sure first party cookies are toggled on in Events Manager. Have access to a developer? I highly recommend connecting with them to set up manual advanced matching and API events for optimal performance.

If you're using one of TikTok's partner commerce platforms, like Shopify or WooCommerce, you can easily set up your pixel events, and advanced matching, but just a couple clicks.

Now let's talk about nurturing your audience with your first campaign. You want to make sure that you're finding users who are likely to convert. Start a campaign with the conversion objective if your goal is online sales. Once you've created your pixel and events, you can set an optimization event to let TikTok know the types of actions and audiences you want to target.

Here's a best practice that might be surprising. Optimized tours in mid-funnel event like add to cart, first. Your end seek might be to optimize for a complete payment, but if you're just starting out on TikTok ads you need to teach the system what types of visitors are most likely to convert throughout the user journey. So set up your first conversion campaign at the ad to cart level to start.

If you get one add to cart event within the first week set up an additional ad group, and move down the funnel to complete payment. If you're not seeing conversions at the add to cart level after one week, more audience members by creating a view content ad group to build conversion volume.

Pro tip, leave ad groups always on when possible to drive continuous audience building and account learnings. Start with broad targeting or auto targeting, then use custom audiences to retarget warm audiences. There you have it. By leveraging signals, nurturing your audience, and utilizing Spark Ads for creativity, you can harness the power of TikTok's advertising ecosystem to boost sales and strengthen your online presence.
