“TikTok creators are the lifeblood of our platform and the reason sounds become hits. When you release through our platform, our team will activate diverse creators to make videos with your track. This helps you broaden your fanbase and reach new communities that these creators are a part of.”
It’s a smart way of internal brand development and marketing pathways that not only keeps things in house at TikTok, but doesn’t over complicate the existing app, as SoundOn will exist on it’s own platform, but work fluidly with TikTok, which keeps music content creators in a targeted path, and others in areas that are of more interest.
