Want to promote your nightclub on TikTok? Here are ideas, tips and valuable techniques that can attract the attention of the online audience
Having an Instagram or Facebook profile for nightclubs is no longer enough: users (especially the younger ones) are spending more and more time on TikTok, the viral video social network par excellence, which can also be used to increase the visibility of a nightclub.
To do this, you need to know some useful techniques and ideas, as well as the metrics to keep under control to verify the effectiveness of content and campaigns.
What is TikTok, and why is it useful for nightclubs
TikTok is now counted among the most popular social networks and works through the diffusion of short videos with a duration between 5 seconds and 60 seconds.
This platform is an ideal channel for advertising campaigns aimed at the target of Millennials and Gen Z, who are the most active users on TikTok.
According to recent statistics, in fact, today, there are about 900 million active users on this social network, which was the most downloaded app in the world in 2020.
But why is TikTok a useful platform for nightclubs? It is easy to say: this social network is still in a "young" phase, in which it is relatively easy to intercept users and capture their attention, compared to other platforms such as Instagram or Facebook.
In fact, on TikTok, there are still essential growth margins for nightclubs that want to promote their business.
How to promote a nightclub on TikTok
Why would users want to see what's happening in a nightclub on TikTok? The social network offers the possibility of creating short videos, which are very versatile tools for developing creative and original content with an all in all reduced effort.
In particular, TikTok videos prove to be interesting for those who manage nightclubs and bars since they are very focused on visual content and have a strong emotional component.
In particular, there are three types of videos that could be interesting for users and potential customers, but there is no limit to the imagination:
- -Videos showing the behind-the-scenes of the location: the preparation of the dishes, the setting up of the room, and the conception of the menu, are all special moments that customers could not see in a normal context and prove to be ideal content for TikTok.
- -Videos dedicated to new dishes on the menu, the wine list or special offers for holidays or occasions: from Christmas to Valentine's Day, to new entries on the menu, TikTok videos can be a new contact channel for interacting with customers.
- -Videos made in collaboration with influencers and content creators: these figures are very active and popular on TikTok and can help make viral videos and offer content to their followers, encouraging them to visit a place.
Creating viral content on TikTok
In order for a TikTok profile to reach many people online, it must share content with high potential which can conceivably go viral.
TikTok is, in fact, a social network where creating content and making it viral is relatively simple, provided you know how to identify and ride the trends of the moment, as well as involve the public of users with challenges.
A quick and easy way for a nightclub that wants to become popular on TikTok is, for example, to share a "lifehack" or those little tricks that make people's lives easier.
A suggestion from the chef is enough to make a dish easier, or a waiter showing how to fold a napkin, and you're done.
Once filmed, just encourage users to repeat it at home and share it online to start a trend and go viral, increasing the visibility of your nightclubs.
TikTok is a useful tool for nightclubs that want to target a young target, such as millennials and Gen Z and who want to increase their online visibility and attract new customers to their establishment.
Use influencers to promote the nightclub on TikTok
No club manager would miss the opportunity to publish a selfie or a short video in the company of a VIP guest of the club. But these occasions don't come around often. However, there is another way to make yourself visible and promote the place indirectly: making all your customers a single, potential influencer.
An influencer is an individual in line with your target audience and, therefore, able to converse with them. He doesn't need to be a famous footballer, an actor or a VIP: many "unknown" influencers (micro-influencers with few followers but very targeted) who create content have the same effect as a celebrity. However, it is important to motivate them properly, pushing them to carry out the action you want with creativity and a pinch of ingenuity.
Think of a way to involve your audience by pushing them to post videos or images on their channels that portray your place and reviews, preferably geolocated and equipped with personalized hashtags that you will provide them on TikTok.Often the brightest ideas are also the simplest, able to make a fortune in the nightclub in terms of attendance and revenues.
Promoting a nightclub on TikTok can be a valuable marketing strategy to attract the attention of younger audiences, who are increasingly spending more time on this social network. TikTok offers various tools for creating creative and original content, such as behind-the-scenes videos, menu updates, and collaborations with influencers and content creators. Creating viral content is also relatively easy on TikTok, by identifying and riding trends and involving users with challenges. Leveraging influencers, especially micro-influencers with a targeted audience, can also help promote the nightclub and increase its visibility. With its high potential for virality and engagement, TikTok can be an effective channel for promoting nightclubs and attracting new customers.
