If social media freaks you out – this episode is for you.

As actors we have to maintain our entire online presence. From online casting sites and IMDb to social media and our websites, it can feel like… a lot. We’ve talked about social media on other #GuruTips, but you might still have a lot of questions and apprehension around it.

I feel you. Social media can be such a great resource, but can also feel like a lot of extra work, with not a lot of payoff. Social platforms can connect you to your community, but can also feel inauthentic or manufactured.

In today’s #GuruTip, I give you an easy tool to break into social media, so you don’t get overwhelmed, and so you can start taking advantage of the incredible (free) marketing resources we have at our disposal!

If you can’t stand social media, learn these steps to take so you don’t get overwhelmed and can use this essential (and free) marketing resource! via @ActResourceGuru @Ajarae! #SocialMedia #ActorsLife #ShareClick to Tweet This Episode of #GuruTips!

I hope these tips help you! The secret to getting started on social media is doing just that – jumping in and getting started. You don’t need to have a million followers tomorrow, so don’t put that pressure on yourself. Start small, begin with some authentic engagement and I guarantee it will get easier.

Now I want to hear from YOU! Share your favorite social media (and your handle) and why you love it in the comments below!
