Connecting With Industry Decision-Makers on Social Media (with guest Evin Michaels) | Workshop Guru
Today we’re back with Workshop Guru’s Social Media & Marketing Director, Evin Michaels! Last week we spoke about Why Actors Need To Be On Social Media, and today we’re sharing exactly HOW you can use social media to start networking!

Social media is a great tool, especially for connecting with industry decision-makers. But you should be very thoughtful about the way you do it. No one likes a stranger sending them a reel.

Evin is the founder and Lead Social Strategist of Social With An i Consulting (and one of my great friends), and he wants to show you how to make these connections the right way.
(Evin also is giving away TWO HUGE gifts to our viewers at the end of the video, so this is NOT a week to miss!)

Like I said, social media is an incredible tool, and has literally made peoples’ careers, so you might as well use it!

However, you do not want to be the actor that steps on toes or burns bridges because you were just looking to be “proactive” and got a little ahead of yourself. Take a step back, make a plan, and use the thoughts and strategies Evin talks about during today’s video. This will prevent you from looking crazy, and can help you get your work seen by people who you want to see it!

Evin is sharing two valuable gifts today: 1. A FREE 30-minute session with him, just for tuning in. HUGE. During this session, he will go over everything from your social media presence to your website to your actor marketing materials. And 2. A complete Twitter list of who’s who and who you should be following on Twitter.

Both of these amazing giveaways are on Social With An i and are totally free. Go now. You don’t want to miss out on this.

Now it’s your turn! Share one of your social media profiles 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!

Peace out… I have to go ‘gram it up now!

P.S. from Evin: Please don’t ever say “‘gram it up”, ever.
