How To Download and Save TikTok Video Ads From The TikTok Creative Center?

This article will guide you on the most effective method to save advertising inspiration from TikTok and the TikTok Creative Center.

Since 2019, TikTok has permitted companies to independently run ads on its platform. As TikTok continues to gain popularity at an astonishing rate, it has emerged as the fastest-growing advertising platform, distinguished by its unique ad style.

While TikTok's ad platform is not as mature as Facebook's, it is rapidly introducing new features, including the TikTok Creative Center, also known as the "TikTok Ad Library," which serves as its equivalent to Facebook Ad Library, also known as the "Meta Ad Library. The primary purpose of the TikTok Creative Center is to discover highly effective advertising creatives that can be used as inspiration.

Unlike the Facebook Ad Library, the TikTok Creative Center lacks the ability to search by keywords or brand name. This limitation makes it particularly challenging for e-commerce stores advertising on TikTok to track their competitors' ad creatives. However, the TikTok Creative Center showcases top ads and provides filtering options based on region, industry, campaign objective, source, duration, and format. Despite this limitation, it remains an excellent source of inspiration for TikTok ads, and all advertisers should utilize it.
