Five Types of TikTok Advertising

    Currently, TikTok’s advertising can be divided into five major categories, Brand Takeover, TopView, In-feed Ads, Hashtag Challenge and Branded Effect Ads.

    1. Brand Takeover

    TikTok Brand takeover ads just like the name suggest pop up as soon as users open the TikTok app and take over the screen for a few seconds and then change into an In-feed video ad. They also show up on the “For You Page” as still images, videos, or gifs with clickable links that lead to landing pages within TikTok. It is effective for creating mass awareness and driving sales since the ads show up in front of the right audience.

    2. TopView

    TikTok top view ads are similar to brand takeovers. The difference is that Top view ads do not cover the screen as soon as users sign in. They occupy the first In-feed post after 3 seconds. It shows up to 60 seconds of full screen video with auto-play and sound. This helps to increase brand exposure.

    3. In-feed Ads

This makes it easy for users to quickly scroll past it. Creating a full-screen in-feed ad that is attractive will stop users from overlooking it. With In-feed ads, users can like, comment, share and interact with the TikTok advertising videos.
