As we get ready to enjoy the weekend, I want to issue one last challenge for the week! When you have a few minutes this Saturday or Sunday, I want you to focus on your social media presence! Promoting yourself and your acting on Facebook, twitter and Instagram are crucial to building your brand. Accumulating followers and friends is an easy way to showcase your talents. Here are a few ways to make the most of your time online:
1. Set a goal to post once a day. Put a picture, a notice about your latest role or a fun thought about your career. People want to get a glimpse into your life and what makes you tick. Give it to them!
2. Follow 5 new people a day. Find interesting and cool people in the industry to follow. Not only will you learn more about the entertainment business but you will most likely get followed back by other people trying to make a name for themselevs. A win win for everyone.
3. Plan out your posts. If you are busy during the week or not quick on your feet about what to post, plan it out! I love using the website Hootsuite to coordinate when and to where I publish my material. Let me know what you think!
Happy posting! I guarantee this will be a big boost to your career and your networking.
