With the rise of social media platforms, TikTok has become a hotbed of creativity, self-expression, and fun content. But it's not just a place for short-form videos of dancing, pranks, and challenges. It's also a great platform for businesses to discover and promote viral products. In this article, we'll know some bestsell products, why they catch on, and how to capitalize on the trend.

The Secrets Behind the Hottest Sellers: Tooth Extraction Oil

This is the blue ocean period when TikTok's US Shops are open, and the market is experiencing an influx of incremental growth. There are 17 videos associated with the product with over 1 million views, and the highest view count reached 18.5 million. It was published by the influencer.

According to the monitoring of the function, hashtags such as #puppy, #pet, and #pet supplies related to pet care have remained popular, indicating a positive trend in traffic diversion. They have become essential tags for videos promoting related categories. Through the Super Shop Insights - Product Search function, it is discovered that the pricing of this tooth extraction oil is relatively high, seeking a relative balance between factors such as cost, consumption trends, income goals, and competitor pricing, thereby ensuring the product's market competitiveness and profit margin.

Explosive Single Product : Facial Massager


According to the Super Shop Insights - Overall Trends data monitoring, the Beauty and Personal Care category has always been the leading traffic driver and sales hotspot in the TikTok US market. In the fierce market competition, this product has undergone multiple price adjustments based on market feedback, ultimately choosing to impact sales with a low price point.

Short videos and live broadcasts complement each other

From the insights on the Super Shop Insights - Product Details page, the Wavy Chic facial massager quickly increased its sales through live streaming promotion strategies starting from the end of October, reaching its peak during the Black Friday shopping week with a maximum of 58 live streaming sessions in a single day.

The commission rate is 20%, consistent with the level of competitors during the same period, but the pricing is the lowest among the top 3 in terms of sales, indicating the possibility of adopting a "low-profit, high-sales" strategy.
