Young South Australian content creators, Linda Huynh and Alex Huynh, found their own niche on Tiktok while entertaining over two hundred thousand of their followers from all corners of the world.
Hey Paolo: What inspired you to start producing creative content on Tiktok?
Linda: We discovered Tiktok two years ago. I first uploaded a Tiktok video secretly and I didn’t tell Alex about it because he might think I was lame. I started getting likes and followers. Later on, he joined me and we started creating more proper and serious content.
Alex: I decided to jump on Tiktok because I thought there’s potential for growth. I thought it was really fascinating and fun. It’s like Youtube but in a shorter format.
Hey Paolo: What are your most popular videos?
Linda: I did a dance video where I accidentally stepped on my dog. It might have hit around two million views already at the moment. My dogs have become really famous on Tiktok. They’re Dino and Sora and the hashtag #DinoSora has over four million views. We do weekly vlogs about our dogs because everyone wants to know about them.
Hey Paolo: What are the types of content that you produce?
Linda: We call ourselves lifestyle content creators and we produce a variety: from fashion, vlogs, challenges to dance videos.
Alex: You can follow the journey of our relationship too and seeing things that we enjoy.
Hey Paolo: What is the importance of social media in today’s world?
Linda: I love and hate social media at the same time. I think it’s a very important aspect in everyone’s life especially the younger generation. It’s important that social media can inspire and educate people. We just have to be careful of what we put out and consume.
Alex: It has a big influence on people especially since Tiktok has a younger audience. People can learn more things now compared to what we could have learned when we were younger.
Hey Paolo: What keeps you motivated?
Linda: I’m very lucky to be managed by Born Bred Talent in Sydney which helps me find jobs and campaigns for Tiktok. Other than that, I get motivated by the encouragement from our followers, whether they give comments or likes.
Alex: What motivates me the most is seeing other people’s success while doing what they love.
Hey Paolo: How do you explain Tiktok to a nonuser?
Linda: It’s a 15-second to 30-second video platform showcasing dances, fashion content, or even cooking videos with the sole purpose of entertainment and education.
