Welcome to Short Form Social
What we do here at Different Think.
With the emergence of TikTok and the roll out of Instagram reels, YouTube shorts, and now Facebook reels short-form video is now one of the best ways to showcase who you are and speak directly to your target audience. Marketing and branding your expertise has never been easier, however this low barrier to entry means you need to be heard above the noise.
This is where my expertise in creating content and profile building across TikTok, shorts , and reels can make a real difference in how your brand is perceived and how you build credibility for your expertise. The opportunity for organic reach and virality is what short form video is known for but creating profiles that are consistently engaging that develop communities to build evergreen pipelines can be hard to do without understanding how and why this mode of communication is very different from other more traditional ways of reaching your audience.
What is TikTok?
TikTok is the fastest growing platform of the decade. With over 2 billion downloads and in-app spending rising this exciting short-form video app is the place to be seen. Based on user content videos of either 15 or 30 seconds where videos are pushed through the “for you” page TikTok is a fast paced, dynamic, fun, place that is no longer just for kids.
One of the platforms greatest appeals is the chance of going viral. Content can and does take off overnight and can soar into views in the millions creating exposure and opportunity that would cost significant amounts on the more pay to play platforms. Take a look at Ocean Sprays recent success with the platform to see what a viral video can do for sales.
Why is TikTok so important to the other platforms?
In recent times the growth of TikTok has been so phenomenal that it's popularity could no longer be ignored. As such we have seen Instagram introduce Reels, YouTube roll out Shorts and more recently Facebook is heavily promoting its version of short form video within its feeds. This has led to a 'perfect storm' for creators to take advantage of as all of the platforms are vying for your viewing minutes, thereby pushing this form of content organically to their users.
Should my business be on TikTok?
As the fastest growing platform of the decade TikTok allows us a platform to stay ahead with a pro-active approach to marketing. As it is growing so rapidly it is a great place to grow and scale unlike some of the other more established platforms which are now saturated with content.
The platform allows us to directly talk with our audience and build relationships based on accessible creative content that builds loyalty.
To be successful, you need to be seen, and TikTok is very good at understanding your content and sharing it to the right people. Content really is king here and creating an authentic voice that clearly shows your companies values, identity and culture will attract a community that will help to create sustainable pipelines and build authority in your niche.
Is short form video good for marketing my business?
The short answer is almost certainly. With over half the world's population now online and the biggest platforms promoting this style of communication the ability to create authentic, original short form video is fast becoming a skillset businesses will need to not just connect with their audiences, but to create communities on a Global stage.
Hi, I'm Matt.
I am the founder and CEO of Different Think Ltd. I started the company as I have a passion for good marketing and am testament to its power.
Using social media I went from school drop-out working on building sites to best-selling author, speaker, online course creator and business owner with an MSc in Marketing who has helped hundreds of people learn to leverage short form content.
Social selling, brand awareness, and community building became something I am not just good at but enjoy.
Over the past few years I have appeared on over 200 podcasts as a guest expert, spoken at numerous business summits and regularly write for industry magazines. I am also in the final stages of writing my next book How to grow on TikTok: The unofficial guide for business.
In fact I have been coaching people on how to successfully use TikTok for so long that some former students who came to my original courses are now offering that training themselves.
I use short form video content in my business everyday and being part of TikTok's UK sellers, creator fund, and marketplace means that I am able to work real-time to establish best practise on the platform.
This working knowledge and understanding of how to use TikTok from the ground up is what makes me one of the foremost coaches on community building through short form video on these platforms in the UK.More About Me
