Expansion of partners in the region gives brands enhanced access to creative and performance capabilities for campaign-led engagements
A year ago, TikTok introduced the TikTok Marketing Partner (TMP) program globally. Today, they are excited to announce that they are expanding the TMP network to onboard nine more leading agencies and technology service providers from Southeast Asia (SEA) and Australia. Along with the expansion, they are also badging a set of regional partners that have excelled this past year and showcased exceptional creativity and zest in helping their clients scale new heights with their campaigns.
TikTok Marketing Partners are industry-vetted experts who create, implement, and measure ad campaigns, and are a key part of the team at TikTok that addresses their clients' requirements.
This expansion reflects the growing demands from brands looking to create more immersive experiences and cohesive marketing campaigns to take their advertising to the next level on the platform. The new partners represent the variety and quality of campaign management agencies that are responsible for fueling the growth of large-scale clients in a highly competitive landscape.
Their entry into the TMP ecosystem promises to give brands with varying needs the resources to get the most out of their marketing efforts. It also offers advertisers greater reach to a broader range of services and partners in the network to enhance their marketing campaigns for improved audience connections and outcomes in the region. The new additions to the program include agencies making their mark in the spheres of optimization services, mobile-first advertising, measurement, media buying and performance-driven marketing. By providing an increasingly robust service network in SEA, TikTok aims to better serve its fast-growing and fast-evolving customers base in the region.
Delilah Chan, Head of Channel Revenue Partnerships Southeast Asia, said: "We welcome our new partners to the TikTok community. As our network grows, we aim to build more meaningful relationships between our partners and clients to give them more seamless experiences and unmatched campaign performance. Along with the existing members of the network, we celebrate your work and are inspired by it. Your hard work and exceptional service helps strengthen our credibility with our advertisers and helps us deliver on the promise of industry-leading solutions."
Newly expanded Campaign Management category, deepening TMP's scope to include Agency Services sub-category
With today's announcement, advertisers will have access to a whole new category via a dedicated drop-down for agency services within our site with a newly launched ‘Agency Services’ sub-category under ‘Campaign Management’. This sub-category gives brands access to the multi-service community of partners who can help meet their campaign’s creative and performance needs quickly and effectively to elevate the overall consumer experience on the platform.
In practice, this means advertisers can now select the local market in the main Partner Search dashboard and see corresponding listings. With these updates, TikTok is now capturing more service offerings ("Jobs to be done") on top of the existing ones. By adding Campaign Management to Media Buying Technologies, they want to give the brands more ways to access complete spectrum expertise for TikTok campaigns. Now, you will see the newly added sub-category of Agency Services under Campaign Management. This sub-category will list full-service providers for managing marketing campaigns on TikTok. You can think of them as the teammates you can entrust with building your campaigns from idea origination, optimization, to performance evaluation. For TikTok's clients, these TMP agency services are an extended arm of their own campaign management team.
Welcoming our newest partners from SEA
Adrian Man, Director of Ecosystem Partnerships, Global Business Solutions, TikTok, said, "The badging initiative is a way of recognizing and celebrating the stellar work done by these partners in terms of driving performance for clients, from concept to measurement. We hope this announcement today further galvanizes the network, and inspires users and brands to tap on the expertise of these partners to create more engaging experiences across the region."
