A Perfect Fit

Our team helped launch TikTok in the United States and has since built a comprehensive database, www.tikscore.com, to monitor the fastest growing TikTokers. Utilizing Tikscore in conjunction with our own Influencer Marketing tools enables our team to create stellar, data-driven influencer line-ups.

Influencer Implementation

NeoReach activated a range of distinct creators on TikTok. The creators also were a balance of men and women, with diverse cultural backgrounds that brought communities across the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and France together for the release of the new season of Cobra Kai.

Cobra Kai Chop

TikTok created the interactive Cobra Kai Chop filter for Netflix. Each influencer activated paired the hashtag #CobraKaiChop with their own creative spin on the filter. From comedic skits to competitions, the filter enabled creators to authentically express themselves without feeling overly branded. Moreover, the filter sparked massive organic engagement and content creation from audiences.
