TikTok has opened up the doors to their Augmented Reality software 'Effect House' allowing any brand to create an AR Effect (AR Filter) on the social network. I've been lucky to be one of the few AR Filter creators to have been given beta access to #EffectHouse. And now that it's open to the public it means anyone and any brand can create AR Filters on TikTok.



What are TikTok filters? And why letting brands create AR Effects on TIKTOK is a game-changer.


TikTok's rise to glory has been incredible. Thanks to the pandemic millions of people flocked to the platform to either alleviate boredom, learn new skills or promote their own brand or business.

Here are 3 reasons why brands should take advantage of TIKTOK'S 'Effect House'


  1. TikTok was the most-visited website in the world in 2021 and now has over 1bn users.

  2. Opening up TikTok Effect House is an eye-ball-grabbing opportunity for brands. Early brand adopters will almost certainly see the biggest reach before the effects go more mainstream.

  3. Virility of TikTok Effects is already hugely impressive with millions of views happening for each effect on an almost daily basis.


In six days my Trainspotter Cam Filters had 3.7 millions views and almost 500,000 plays.
