Jacob Pace on TikTok for Artists, 2.2 Billion TikTok Likes & Being Courageous (Ep.067)
There’s a question that has come up a few times lately, it’s from both listeners and discussions within my own circle. These questions have been around TikTok and if it has a place as an artist in electronic & dance music. In today’s podcast, we are virtually sitting down with Jacob Pace to ponder if you could be active on TikTok and if it is actually right for you?
Jacob Pace is CEO of Flighthouse and is one of Rolling Stone’s Future 25s, Flighthouse is recognised as the creative agency for TikTok with a staggering 25 million TikTok followers and a mind-blowing 2.2 billion likes. In this episode, Jacob offers his thoughts, perspective and experience on not only TikTok but also being courageous and finding the platform that fits you best. Just because TikTok is the new, shiny and hyped social media - it doesn’t mean it’s for you.
