TikTok is referred to by Etsy as“Unique and powerful marketing channels for small businesses”.
However, for cooperation opportunities that many people are optimistic about, there are alsoSome sellers have reserved their opinions. They stated that fromObtaining returns from TikTok requires a lot of time and investment costs, and there will also be difficulties and challenges in screening platform content.
According to the data,Currently, 10% of sellers on the Etsy platform are using TikTok for product promotion. As a famous e-commerce platform in the United States, Etsy mainly focuses on handcrafted products as its main feature. TikTok, on the other hand, ranks among the top social e-commerce platforms. The cooperation between the two companies will make Etsy's advantages more apparent for other similar e-commerce platforms.
