Today we got the honor of interviewing Allysia (Miso's Human). You can find a direct link to their Instagram here.
Here is their story:
Can you tell us about your journey to becoming a dog influencer? What inspired you to start sharing your dog's adventures on social media?
Lesmana: We wanted to have a platform to share Miso's life. It was rewarding as it became a place that we go to reminiscence the moments. Little did we know, we met so many amazing people and pups through Instagram.
What do you think sets your dog apart from other dogs on social media? What makes them unique or particularly interesting to your followers?
Lesmana: I wouldn't say Miso's account is unique, but we always try to share authentic content from her daily life. For example, we share her sleeping moments because that's what she does for most of the days. We also share content with her friends and when we take her on trips.
How do you come up with ideas for your dog's posts and content? Do you have a specific creative process?
Lesmana: Sometimes we would post content based on TikTok or IG trends. Other times we just post to promote brands, which revolves around Miso's life.
Have you ever faced any challenges or negativity on social media, and how have you dealt with it?
Lesmana: No, thankfully we have had the opposite experience where everyone has been very welcoming and supportive. We are lucky to be a part of the community.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to start their own dog influencer account or share their dog on social media?
Lesmana: Do it! You won't regret it. We started out not expecting anything, but we managed to make life-long friends.
How has your dog influenced your life outside of social media?
Lesmana: Miso has definitely been a positive impact in our lives. We work office jobs, so prior to having Miso, we would sit on the desk and work all day. Having Miso forces us to get outside and do daily walks.
Can you tell us about a particularly memorable or funny moment you've had with your dog during one of your photo shoots or adventures?
Lesmana: A memorable moment was when we went camping for the first time with Miso over the July 4th weekend last year. She was so intrigued with sleeping in a tent because she could hear sounds from outside but she could not see what they were. We brought her own bed to sleep on in the tent but she still ended up squeezing herself to sleep in between my legs.
What is your favorite thing about being a dog influencer?
Lesmana: Being able to bring smiles to our followers and interacting with fellow dog influencers :)
Lastly, what's next for you and your dog on social media? Any exciting plans or projects in the works?
Lesmana: We will continue sharing Miso's life. We hope to have opportunities to collaborate with more brands in addition to becoming brand ambassadors for our favorites.
