“New Semester, No Distractions” – TikTok Shop Recommends 5 Insider Tips to Help Stores Boost Income via Live Streaming During Back-to-School

TikTok Shop serves as an essential channel for Thai families shopping during this period, offering a wide range of trendy products at attractive prices that align with Thai shopping habits. TikTok also serves as a platform where parents and students discover the latest trends, from household items and appliances to clothing and various wearable accessories. With the new school term commencing, it presents an excellent opportunity for retailers, food and consumer product brands, technology, health, finance, and general stores to create campaigns and engage live stream content to expand their customer base and drive sales. Here are four recommendations:

Enhance the Quality of Live Content: Viewers appreciate smooth, clear, and uninterrupted Live streams, coupled with immersive elements such as thematic store decorations or costumes. Crucially, the content should focus on engagement rather than being overly sales-oriented. Therefore, stores must ensure optimal audio and video quality and consistently prepare engaging content that aligns with their target audience.

  • Incorporate Gaming and Freebies: Enhance the interactive shopping experience by integrating gaming elements into your live streams. Organize virtual activities such as Q&A quizzes, price guessing games, or singing sessions to engage buyers.
  • Additionally, consider showcasing gameplay, dancing, or other captivating activities to attract and retain audience interest. Lastly, provide small freebies upon purchase to leave a lasting impression and ensure customers remember their shopping experience.
  • Choose Trendy & High-Quality Products to Foster Audience Engagement: While Live Streaming is an effective sales strategy for attracting and persuading buyers, the quality and trendiness of products play a crucial role in drawing viewers and prompting purchasing decisions. You can explore trending products using the Explore Top Product On TikTok feature to identify popular items. Additionally, businesses, whether they have a physical storefront or not, can leverage live product reviews to boost sales by sharing genuine experiences with their audience.
  • Continuously Improve Backend Services to Foster Customer Loyalty and Repeat Purchases: Customer service is paramount in any business, regardless of its size. The language, expressions, and gestures used by live broadcasters can significantly influence sales. Moreover, providing exceptional after-sales customer service is essential for retaining existing customers and extracting additional value from them, such as referrals. Therefore, it’s crucial to focus on developing backend services to cultivate customer loyalty and encourage repeat purchases.

TikTok leads the Live Streaming arena, fostering real-time shopping engagement and providing consumers with added purchase incentives. According to the ‘Shoppertainment 2024 : THE FUTURE OF CONSUMER & COMMERCE’ report, one crucial consumer behavior unveiled is the seamless transition from browsing product content to making purchases (Effortless Browse-to-Buy) within a single platform. Parents, students, and various consumer segments alike seek quality products, discounts, and free shipping from brands or stores offering trendy and value-driven products. TikTok Shop is actively assisting stores and entrepreneurs in harnessing the potential of TikTok’s e-commerce platform and solutions as an effective channel to market and sell products during the back-to-school period through engaging Live sessions,” remarked Miss Kornnikar

Moreover, merchants can implement short-term marketing activity strategies to yield swift returns. By participating in the Shipping Fee Program campaign and offering XTRA free shipping coupons to customers, they can achieve a “Quick Win” and capture consumers’ attention during the payment consideration stage. Additionally, adhering consistently to the policies and regulations outlined by the TikTok Shop Academy is essential for selling products effectively.
