In the ever-evolving world of digital marketing, a seismic shift is occurring – TikTok is emerging as a potent search engine, particularly among Gen Z users. This trend presents an unprecedented opportunity for auto dealerships to tap into a younger, digitally-savvy audience actively seeking information and inspiration on this platform.
The rise of TikTok as a search engine is underpinned by its unique content delivery method – short, informative videos that tell engaging stories. This format resonates particularly well with younger generations. Research indicates that over 40% of consumers, including a staggering 64% of Gen Z and 49% of millennials, are turning to TikTok for their search needs, with nearly 10% of Gen Z users preferring it over traditional search engines like Google. They’re using TikTok to look up a wide array of topics, from cooking recipes to DIY ideas, fashion, and more.

This is where The Automotive Advertising Agency (TAAA) becomes a pivotal partner for auto dealerships.
