Episode 91: Build Your Fan Army

Social Media has made it so much easier to connect with your audience between performances. So what do you share to keep them interested?

Times have definitely changed when it comes to growing your fan base. Before social media, performers would mingle with the audience and hope and pray they remember to show up to their next performance. In order to get any type of crowd to show they would stand on the street for hours upon hours handing out flyers. It was a very slow process. Now with a click of a button you can share who you are and what you do with thousands of people instantly. Social Media has made it super quick and easy to connect with people and build a following. But how to get them interested in you as a performer? You still have to mingle after your shows but now you hope they are curious enough to search for you on social media. Once they do it's important that you are sharing real and authentic contact with them. I blame reality TV for this but more and more people want to know what is REALLY happening with their favorite performers. Whether local or big time, they want to be clued in. Share rehearsal videos, share your progress of learning something new, share your diet and exercise program, Share life/family/pet updates (when comfortable). Thurn your audience into your fans by bringing them into your life.

Episode 90: Performing Should Be Fun

The easiest and most basic way to connect with your audience is to just have fun and enjoy what you love.

Having Fun is one of the most essential pieces to performing on stage. It opens up a connection to the audience that leaves them feeling great. Your relationship with  your audience starts immediately, leave them feeling fond by showing them you enjoy what you do. They came to be entertained. If you are enjoying what you do, they will too. Really get into it, 150%. Too many performers go on stage and move about, going through the motions of the performance but there is nothing there, no enjoyment. Without enjoyment there will not be a connection. Imagine this, at your next show your biggest fan sees you for the first time.

Episode 89: What is Your Performance Saying to Your Audience?

Every time you step on stage you should be sharing a story with your audience.

A performance is meant to provoke thought or feelings for the audience. If not, then you are just showing off a skill or talent you have. When you are crafting your show think about what you want the audience to feel or think during your show. NOT what they should think about you but rather what feelings or thoughts should they have as a result of seeing your performance. Consider a painting, Starry Night by Van Gogh. This painting provoke different feelings and interpretations from each individual that views it. (Don’t believe me? Google it and provide a meaning of the painting). Your performance is like your Starry Night, your painting. Each person that shares in the experience of it should have an interpretation and should feel something. Tell your audience a story, everyone loves a good story. When people have something they can relate to it makes them desire a connection with you (follower/Fan).
