The main deciding factor is mostly the creators’ location (country) and that of their followers. If it is a region where purchasing power is more limited, it can affect your possibility of making as much as TikTokers who reside in Tier 1 countries.

Why TikTok is so Popular
A lot of young content creators have mastered the art of coming up with multiple short videos that make waves. The chief deciding factor is that users can follow multiple accounts with the contents they can relate to the most on the platform. The videos are entertaining, brief, and relatable almost all the time.
For an app that is the most popular for creating videos where users lip-sync and goof around, a lot has changed with its speedy gain in popularity. TikTok was the app with the most number of downloads on the Apple App store in early 2018, exceeding YouTube, Instagram, and WhatsApp which is an impressive milestone.
