"You have NOT missed the boat" on TikTok (Shop) for Your Small Business

Hello and welcome back to the show - it’s Doone here - your host and Hype Girl.

In these Friday episodes, we have a co-host joining us, Josephine, and every week we will be checking in to talk about what’s current and trending in the world of business with tips on how you could leverage that and what’s coming up inside the Facebook group.

This week, we are going to talk about a topic which has been very top of mind for us these past few weeks, and that’s TikTok Shop. TikTok Shop is  the e-commerce arm of TikTok which has completely turned the e-comm world on it's head in countries like the US and the UK. With TikTok Shop hitting the Australian market soon, we walk you through exactly how you can get started, how much it is a content game and what you can expect from the space as a small business owner in 2024. So stoked about this next chapter!

TikTok Shop is set to crack the US commerce market with a projected $17.5 billion spend this year. In other words; 1 in 10 Americans are buying things on TikTok. This.Is.Wild. We’re very much jumping on the TikTok Shop train with you.
