The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many aspects of our lives, including the way we spend our free time. One phenomenon that has emerged during the pandemic is the explosion in popularity of TikTok. This short video sharing platform became a place where content creators tried to pursue fame in their unique ways. In this article, we will explore the inspiring story of a TikTok creator named Asyam, known as “Anak Gak Bisa Diem.” Let’s take a look at the incredible journey that took Asyam from an ordinary TikTok user to a part of DCT Agency.
It all started as a fad during the pandemic. Asyam initially just dabbled with the TikTok platform with no serious intention of becoming a content creator. However, fate played a role when one of his videos suddenly gained tremendous attention from the TikTok audience. The video went viral and brought many new viewers to his account.
This sudden fame opened the door for Asyam to befriend fellow TikTok users. They shared experiences, ideas and encouragement to keep creating interesting content. These friends not only provided moral support, but also became a valuable source of inspiration in Asyam’s journey on TikTok.
Challenges in Building Career on TikTok
Success at TikTok did not come easily. Asyam experienced many hurdles and obstacles. Although he got more serious about creating content, not all of his videos made it to TikTok’s For You page (FYP), which is one of the keys to success on the platform. However, he never targets whether his videos will make it to FYP or not. For him, the most important thing is consistency in creating content that he enjoys and that can entertain his audience.
One of the key moments in his TikTok journey was when he was invited to join DCT Agency. Previously, he only endorsed through direct messages (DMs) without having an understanding of rate cards and a more formal endorsement mechanism. However, after participating in the TikTok Shop event and receiving an offer from DCT Agency, Asyam decided to join. This decision opened the door for Asyam to work with well-known brands such as Kelaya, Salsa, and Scarlett Whitening.
With consistency in creating content and support from DCT Agency, he achieved impressive success in TikTok. He managed to buy equipment such as cellphones and laptops for his studies, and even bought a motorcycle. Asyam’s videos are mostly dances, reflecting his love for dance and his joy in movement.
Asyam’s story on TikTok is proof that perseverance, consistency, and the support of an online community can take someone far. She is a living example that success can come to anyone who dares to try and stay true to what they enjoy. Joining DCT Agency is a smart move in helping Asyam manage partnerships with brands and expand his reach of influence on TikTok. We can take inspiration from Asyam’s success story and perhaps ask ourselves, “When will it be my turn?”. So, let’s join DCT Agency soon!
