Episode 72: How to Promote Yourself

Maintaining contact with your audience is crucial for performers. People want to stay connected to you.

Self-promotion means you are consistently promoting what you are doing. From preparing for a show, to learning new moves, your audience wants an inside look. How do you accomplish that? Social Media. You don’t need to hire anyone and you don’t have to be some big-shot know-it-all social media buff. You need a facebook page, instagram, and twitter all set up specifically for you stage persona. After that you just need a few hours a week, a couple apps on your phone, and VIOLA! Self-promotion. So what are these fancy apps? Simple and easy is what I call them.

  1. Buffer - Helps manage and schedule your posts.
  2. Video Editior - Any video editor will allow you to trim videos shot from your phone.
  3. Canva - Easy-to-use graphics website

Episode 71: Things Will Go Wrong

It’s inevitable. If something can go wrong it will.

Performing on stage creates opportunity for things to go wrong. Whether you forgot a piece of your outfit, someone got hurt, the DJ did not cue the music correctly, maybe even a forgot or broken piece of equipment. Before you focus on that negative situation, stop! Assess the issue and move on to how you can fix it or work-around it. Sometimes a quick trip to the store can resolve the issue. Often times you may not get exactly what your original plan was but once you let those creative juices flow, you will be able to put something comparable together. After all the main purpose of performing is sharing your talent and connecting to your audience.

Episode 70: Visualize Yourself on Stage

Every time you get on stage try to imagine what you want to audience to see. Then create that show and have confidence in what you created.

Every performer has a vision before getting on stage. If not, get one. Take a moment to relax, close your eyes and visualize yourself on stage, what you are doing, where you are standing, your facial expressions. Think about the experience you want to give the audience. Once you have your vision, start creating it as you prepare for the performance. Rehearse the vision, not just the talent. Your talent is there, your vision is what will make your talent a performance. Sometimes we get on stage unsure of ourselves and unsure of the outcome of the performance.Trust your vision
