There is something special about TikTok! It’s a widely used social media platform with astounding growth and opportunities.

Launched in 2017, this platform now has more than a billion active monthly users, according to Statista. Its competitors like Meta or Instagram took over a decade to hit such a milestone.

What about its business potential?

According to Hootsuite, 40% of Americans use TikTok as a search engine, and Gen-Z users are 1.8 times more likely to purchase on TikTok through community recommendations.

All these factors have led the business owners to build their strong presence on TikTok and look for a way to integrate its feed on their eCommerce website.

You are at the right place if you want the easiest and most efficient integration process for your WordPress website. All you need to do is to find the perfect TikTok widget.

From now on, we will discuss the functioning process of a widget for TikTok and how to use one with a step-by-step integration process.

Let’s start.

What is a TikTok widget? 

A TikTok widget is a form of social media plugin that can display content from your feed in a collective, organized, and customized template on your WordPress website.

The purpose of a TikTok feed widget is to connect your social presence with your WordPress website and present your brand more convincingly to the new audience.

The TikTok interactive widget will automatically update your integrated webpage with new content from your feed and provide seamless collaboration between your WordPress website and TikTok feed.

Why do you need a TikTok widget?

Now that you have learned what a TikTok widget is, here comes the next big question:

Why do you need one?

Before we say anything else, let’s look at some key statistics from Hootsuite and TikTok about the business potential of this platform:

  • 54% of business owners have been using TikTok to promote their products, with an average of nine posts per month
  • Business owners are spending an average of 15% of their total marketing budget on TikTok
  • According to TikTok, advertisers now see an average return of $2 for every $1 spent

The stats are surely impressive and lucrative, and TikTok success stories are there to vouch for that. But here is the dark side of the moon. Many business owners struggle with their exposure and it becomes hard to produce content with constant quality.

As the saying goes, there is no smoke without fire. An eCommerce website with an integrated TikTok feed can provide a higher engagement rate. Here are some other key benefits:

  • Better presentation: TikTok is all about shot-format videos with editing tools, trendy music, cool trends, and great visuals. Using TikTok widgets to present a product on your site carries certain charms, especially when your business targets a younger audience.
  • Higher credibility: Gen-Z audiences trust TikTok community recommendations of TikTok before finalizing their purchase decision. When a younger demographic visitor finds TikTok content on your site, your brand will surely trust your brand more.
  • Lower bounce rate: TikTok content is addicting! That’s a fact. People will spend more time on your site if they find TikTok content, hence lowering your bounce rate. Moreover, you can direct your site traffic to the account and convert them into views, likes, and followers.
  • Enhanced brand visibility: Brand visibility can be a serious issue while selling online. However, an integrated TikTok feed can be a good solution. You can optimize your page and improve your site’s health by reducing the bounce rate.
