The Pro Moment – Self Promotion – How to Promote Your Work and Not Look Like a Tool – 9.10.15

Have you every promoted a show and been ignored or been afraid that you come off as pushy? That’s an easy thing to happen.  When you’re doing any kind of art, you have to start off advertising to your friends and family and that can be weird. Today on #Periscope, we talked about how to be a genuine and honest person so that when you advertise your next thing, you don’t come off as a tool. Here are some examples…

4. Offering something instead of asking for something. If you’re doing comedy, then it’s a video. If you’re selling nail polish, it’s free test polish or something equivalent.

3. Be upfront with your intentions. Don’t act like you want to know abut their life, then follow up with an invitation to an improv show.

2. Send an email, not a text. Texts are too pushy and just sending out a FB event invite isn’t enough.

1. Be a real human being! Care about the people you want to work with!
