Unlock the power of creator marketing with TTCM! 🔓
Want simple, actionable tips on making TikTok ads that drive results?
Join TikTok experts on Tuesday, August 15th at 3:00pm BST (10am PT) as they explain the power of creator marketing for your next TTCM creator campaign.
What’s in store for this webinar?
For advertisers, creators are an all-in-one creative resource for making stellar branded content on TikTok. They’re more than just brand ambassadors or on-camera talent. They’re experts in platform trends, communities, and storytelling. They’re masters at film and editing. And seasoned creators know how to take a brand’s messaging and make it fresh, entertaining, and engaging to TikTok viewers.
All this is to say: The best way for brands to work with creators is to treat them as consultants who can help their strategy shine from the very beginning to the very end. In this webinar, we have actionable advice on how brands can leverage creators as consultants, based on the POVs of real-life creators who shared their thoughts on the best way for advertisers to partner with them on top-performing, creator-led TikTok campaigns.
Collaborate with TikTok Creators your way with Invite Links
In this webinar we'll introduce you to Invite Links, a campaign collaboration tool that allows you to invite creators to a campaign outside of the TTCM platform by generating a public link for creators to upload their videos.
Before Invite Links, TikTok Creator Marketplace was a contained environment where brands could partner with creators through our end-to-end workflow, as long as they were both on TikTok Creator Marketplace.
Now, Invite Links give brands the flexibility to collaborate with any TikTok creator on a one-time campaign at the click of a button. By generating a public link for creators to upload their videos to TikTok Creator Marketplace, brands can easily collaborate with any creator and get access to the platform’s unique reporting and performance solutions.
In short, Invite Links give advertisers wider access to the creator community while still keeping hold of all the benefits of TikTok Creator Marketplace.

From there, advertisers can view the profile of creators who apply and select the creators they want to work with.
3 reasons to use Open Applications for branded content campaigns
🤼 Expand your reach and open your invite to more creators on TikTok Creator Marketplace
Open Applications makes it easy for advertisers to send out a campaign brief to the TikTok Creator Marketplace network of creators, and expand their reach by allowing creators to self-apply to the campaign brief and pitch their creative ideas within their application.
Based on the submitted applications and our matchmaking algorithm, advertisers can pick from a selection of relevant creators who have applied to their campaign.
😎 Find the right creators faster, with preference filters and screening questions
With Open Applications, advertisers can set preference filters and screening questions to surface the most relevant creators faster. Use Preference Filters to indicate your preferred qualifications for creators applying to your campaign brief, such as Creator Country/Region, Audience Age, and Video Categories.
Advertisers can also set Screening Questions (optional) asking about a creator's product experience or partnership history. This helps to narrow down the search and make it easy to surface the most relevant creators for your campaign.
📊 Work with specific creators at the same time
With the Open Applications feature, advertisers can open their campaign invitation to the TikTok Creator Marketplace network of over 800K creators, where interested creators can self-apply.
At the same time, advertisers can also choose to work with specific TikTok Creator Marketplace creators that they have in mind.
After creating the Open Applications campaign, advertisers can simply navigate to “Manage" > “Open Applications" > and select “Invite creators".
This allows advertisers to see their shortlisted creators and invite these specific creators to their Open Applications campaign as well.

Click “Confirm" and fill out your Brand and Contact Information.
3. Set preferred qualifications and screening questions
Fill in the preferred creator qualifications and screening questions (optional)
It is recommended for advertisers to set creator qualifications and screening questions as this will help you surface the most relevant creators when you are shortlisting the creators who have applied.
Preferred Qualifications: Set qualifications for creators who apply, such as your preferred creator country/region, target audience age, video categories/niche, or your preferred minimum engagement rate.
Screening Questions: This optional step allows you to set questions to learn more about a creator's location or experience doing paid partnerships.
4. Publish the campaign
Fill out the deliverables and payment section. If you select online transaction for payment, note that both advertisers and creators must agree to the TikTok Creator Marketplace Contract
Select 'Publish' after everything has been filled.
Creators on TikTok Creator Marketplace will be able to see the campaign invite in the “Open Applications" section of their Creator Console.
Creators will then choose to accept/apply to the Open Applications campaign.
Sending Open Applications campaign invites to specific creators
Besides opening up the Open Applications campaign invite to all creators on TikTok Creator Marketplace, advertisers can also send invitations to specific creators that they wish to invite to their campaign as well.
Steps to follow:
1. Make sure you have created and published your Open Applications campaign per the steps above.
2. Create a shortlist of specific creators you want to work with
5. Invite these creators to your Open Application campaign
What to do after your Open Applications campaign is published
Review and accept creators who have applied
To view which creators have applied to your campaign:
1. Navigate to “Campaigns" > “Manage" > “OpenApplications“
2. Click on the specific campaign to see a list of all of the creators who have applied.
3. Click on individual creators to view their application and their answers to your screening questions (if you provided this in your Open Applications campaign).
4. Decide if you want to accept or decline the creator's application. Creators will receive an in-app notification once their application is accepted, declined or modified
Note: Advertisers must respond to the creator's application within 7 days.
If you miss out on a creator's application but would still like to work with him/her, you would need to create a new campaign invite via Direct Invitation.
FAQs about Open Applications Campaign
Q: What is the difference between Open Applications and Direct Invite campaigns?
Open Applications is an open-invite campaign opportunity that allows all creators on TikTok Creator Marketplace to apply directly to the campaign. Direct Invite, on the other hand, is where advertisers shortlist specific creators on TikTok Creator Marketplace and invite them directly to be part of their campaign.
Q. How long do I have to review the Open Applications campaign?
Once the application period has started, advertisers will have 7 days to respond to a creator application. Usually, creators will start expressing interest and submitting applications within the first 24 hours. Most creator applications are submitted within the first 30 days of a campaign being published. We recommend you actively manage your Open Application campaign to ensure you do not miss out on responding to creators who have applied.
Q: Can I extend the original dates of my Open Applications campaign so more creators can join?
Yes, advertisers can extend the application period for their Open Application for a maximum time period of two months.
Q: If I extend the application period, does that reset the time needed to respond to creators that have already applied?
Extending the application period does not reset the time needed to respond to creators that have already applied. Advertisers still need to respond to an application within seven days of the application date.
