The TikTokers Who Are Killing It in Spain 2020
TikTok is killing it, and that’s a fact. The Chinese short-video platform has generated 14 million downloads in Spain and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop soon, as each day it has even more followers.
Furthermore, content creators and brands know it and are joining in to develop their marketing strategies. Sometimes they do it from their own accounts, and other times they put it in the hands of the most influential profiles managed by a specialised Tiktok marketing agency.
Despite the war unleashed in the US around the possible shutdown of the app, it is still the most downloaded and popular app of 2020. What stands out is its popularity among youths and Generation Z, which is the most relevant audience on this network. Therefore, the focus is on them when creating content on the app.
We will review the TikTok accounts that manage to make their content go viral in the blink of an eye. It’s not difficult to notice the accounts that get an immense number of likes within a few minutes of uploading a video. Are you ready? Let’s go!
