FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – May 26, 2022 – Dash Hudson is pleased to announce that TikTok has named the globally-leading social marketing software solution a founding partner of its Content Marketing specialty, enabling the development of three groundbreaking proprietary tools that are vital for brands to master their TikTok strategy and win on the platform.
"At TikTok, we are always looking for ways to make it easier for brands to develop great content that resonates with their communities,” said Melissa Yang, Head of Ecosystem Partnerships, TikTok “We are excited to welcome our new content marketing partners into the TikTok Marketing Partner Program, and to be collaborating with some of the most trusted partners in the industry.

There has been a significant shift in how audiences expect to connect with brands online, pivoting away from the traditional model of social media and into the world of digital entertainment.
Dash Hudson’s Co-founder and CEO, Thomas Rankin, describes digital entertainment as “the product of the collision of technology and culture”.

This paradigm grants marketers permission to get back to what they do best: being creative – and Dash Hudson is the only solution in market to bridge creativity and data.
“TikTok is entertainment. It has fundamentally transformed how digital marketers engage consumers and is top-of-mind for the CEOs and CMOs we work with. Dash Hudson’s sophisticated insights give brands the confidence to continue to increase their investment in short-form video,” says Thomas Rankin, Co-founder and CEO, Dash Hudson. “TikTok is an opportunity for brands to get back to their best, be playful, and build new communities. We are thrilled to be working alongside the team at TikTok to help top brands and retailers create videos that entertain and bring joy to consumers around the world.”

Beyond the API, Dash Hudson is also announcing the launch of three revolutionary and proprietary tools for brands to further deepen engagement and discoverability: Entertainment Score, Trending Video Notifications and Trending Sounds.
