Douyin is China's most downloaded video-sharing platform feeding light-hearted content to its 400 million daily viewers. Popular in non-tier 1 cities, Douyin provides editing features and creative challenges that empower ordinary people to become video creators, even turning some into influencers overnight.
Douyin continues to build features that enable successful influencers on the platform to generate sizable sales from its viewers. Douyin’s features make it easy for viewers to buy a product featured in a video, directly book a hotel, purchase coupons, and more.
According to Fabian Bern, head of a marketing company that works closely with Douyin influencers, some leading Douyin Influencers can reportedly make “fifteen to twenty thousand U.S. dollars” on a shopping holiday like Singles’ Day.
Not to be confused with its global sister TikTok, Douyin does not operate outside of China.
Douyin is most commonly used by brands or influencers to amass following through organic growth and advertising.
