A comprehensive e-learning guide to TikTok for marketing and advertising professionals

USD 129

TikTok has exploded onto our screens in recent years. The Chinese based social media platform, known as Douyin (抖音) and created by Bytedance in China, has become the destination for short form mobile users and has captured Gen Z audiences across the globe, from China and India to the USA. The app was one of the most downloaded in the world in 2019 with over 700 million downloads.
