TikTok has certainly changed the paradigm on how entertainment / music fans discover, create and share music.

For example, Travelex, a UK-based currency exchange company, started a campaign by launching a 12-month photo contest campaign.

Through this initiative, the company aims to increase social engagement and obtain data from potential users.

The advent of digital commerce and the growing dislike of consumers for intrusive marketing tactics have led many advertisers and brands to introduce user-generated content to engage and connect with consumers.. New formats, such as augmented reality (AR) filters and lenses and live streaming, have given consumers new ways to create content. They have given marketing agencies new strategies for leveraging user-generated content as part of their advertising and marketing efforts. For example in March 2020Twitch’s, an American live video streaming service, claims that its audience increased by 31% as more people connected with the live streaming platform. For brands and their agencies, the use of UGC has many benefits for advertising and marketing purposes. Among them are highly trusted online content, strong brand affinity and engagement, more earned media, strong search engine optimization (SEO), and new research opportunities.

However, The downside of marketing and advertising through user-generated content is related to the requirement for close supervision, as negative content is unavoidable.. It requires a person or team to monitor, filter, and review user-generated content before publishing it, resulting in additional costs and time for organizations. Also, moderating UGC can lead to a Black Hat SEO attack. Therefore, a dedicated team of supervisors is required to publish the content. Another prominent factor restricting the growth of the UGC market is unknown and unreliable sources. Since people may be reluctant to trust a random review or content with no authoritative background, the credibility of marketing content is questioned. Plus, accusing the system of fake accounts and aliases is easy with so many different content contributors. Therefore, some consumers are unlikely to trust UGC like others.
