Digital solutions for boosting business growth

2​020 was a challenging year for businesses all over the Philippines, with a crippling months-long lockdown as one of its greatest hurdles. According to the 2020 Asia Pacific Small and Medium Business Digital Maturity study conducted by International Data Corp. (IDC), 70.6% of micro, small, and medium enterprises in the country were forced to temporarily cease operations due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The same survey also shows that 58.8% of businesses reported zero income, while 28% had revenues drop by over 30%.

As they recuperate over the coming months, investing on digital transformation could actually help companies, particularly SMEs, to meet their business goals. It has been found that digitally mature SMEs are generally more productive, and are able to report higher revenues, versus those that are slow to adapt to digitalization. In the present scenario, digital tools have also become necessary and effective means for businesses to reach consumers. These are some of the primary reasons for the development of TikTok Ads Manager, at a time when consumers are found to opt for online transactions and interactions in light of the ongoing pandemic.

The global agency, We Are Social, reports in its Digital 2021 study that Filipinos spend an average of 4 hours and 15 minutes each day on social media, a 22-minute increase from the country's Digital 2020 average. The Philippines also led the world in social media use in 2019 and 2020. Now, through TikTok Ads Manager, SMEs gain access to this large, highly engaged local community that exists online.

"We want to give brands and businesses the ability to reach millions of potential customers online in a unique way, with every single short-form video they share on TikTok. Through the platform's easy to use advertising solutions, we hope to help businesses find their authentic voice, and enable them to maximize their creative potential in order to grow and thrive, while also being able to save on advertising expenses," said Esme Lean, Head of Small and Medium Businesses, Southeast Asia - TikTok.
