Happy GuruTips Tuesday Actors! Continuing with our series on actors’ online presence, we’re getting into a huge factor: social media presence.
Social media, especially doing it the right way, can be difficult, and I wanted to help, so I thought the perfect guest with would be Workshop Guru’s Social Media & Marketing Director, Evin Michaels!
Evin is the founder and Head Social Strategist of Social With An i Consulting (and one of my great friends), and he wants to make sure that after today, you understand the basics of what platforms you should be on, what you should be posting, how often, and the right ways to do it!
(Evin also is giving away a HUGE gift to our viewers at the end of the video, so this is NOT a week to miss!)
There are a lot of ways that actors can maximize their social media reach, but you can’t do that without first being on social media!
The first step to maximizing your social media reach is being on social media! And wow are there a lot of them. When I first asked Evin what’s out there, he mentioned: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Periscope, LinkedIn, Google+, Snapchat, Tumblr, Ello, Pinterest, YouTube— I had to cut him off there. It’s a lot, and that can be kind of intimidating. But as Evin mentions, it doesn’t have to be!
This is a whole new world of marketing that you literally have at your fingertips. But there is a right (and a wrong) way to do it!
We both know it’s a lot of work, and Evin wanted to help you out. He’s giving away a FREE 30-minute session with him, just for tuning in. This is HUGE. He’ll go over your social media presence, your website, even your actor-materials like ActorsAccess and LACasting!
Now it’s your turn! Share a social media profile in the comments below and let us know if you’ve scheduled your session with Evin! (Each comment enters you to win an exclusive Workshop Guru prize!)
I know that you have lots of questions, and I want to make it easy for you to get them answered. Do you have a burning question that you want me to answer in Guru Tips For Actors? Email us your questions and we’ll address it in a future #GuruTips episode!
BRB I need to go tweet!
