Quotes by Jidé Maduako:

“This is helping brands and apps to establish their presence on TikTok as a platform, which I believe is the biggest opportunity for advertisers since Instagram.”

“There’s a lot more micro influencers than there are macro influencers or celebrities.”

“The influencers have the trust of their audience and anything they do recommend works at scale.”

“TikTok has unearthed a world of creativity because it’s so easy to chop and edit, and add effects to the videos that it allows anybody to look amazing.”
