The popular video app has launched a new Small Business Resource Center that includes case studies, creative tools, and explainers to help you become successful on the platform. As explained by the platform: 

“From success stories to creative tools and free webinars, it has everything you need to grow your small business on our platform.”

Despite the negative attention the app received in 2020, including action taken on a possible U.S. ban, TikTok has continued to grow and is on track to reach 1.2 billion users in 2021.
