Everyday more than 350,000 businesses use TikTok to connect with new customers and grow their business. To help support them on this journey TikTok launched the TikTok Thrive Roadshow in partnership with Afterpay. Visiting Melbourne and Sydney, the events offered attendees essential guidance on digital marketing, content creation, and business strategy to empower small and medium-sized businesses on TikTok to thrive and grow. The events attracted a diverse range of businesses, with more than 400 attending both events, including well-known names such as Frank Green, Chefs & Dogs, Edgars Mission, Beysis, and Esmio Australia.

During the event, small business operators and owners had the opportunity to gain invaluable insights from TikTok experts, industry professionals, and accomplished SMB owners who have achieved significant business growth and success through the platform. Founders from Beysis, Esmio Australia, and Chefs & Dogs, shared their expertise, whilst addressing pressing questions about harnessing viral success, transforming customer feedback into product solutions, and how to grow a prosperous business utilising TikTok.
