Marketing Yourself

Learn about a past seminar by Brian Choper

GFY can show you how to find, establish and maintain relationships with people who are looking to hire entertainment. This process involves networking, marketing and public relations. Networking connects you with the right people. Marketing promotes what you do. Public relations gets your name in front of the public by soliciting the media. You need to do all three. GFY can show you how.

GFY can do your marketing for you

GFY markets, promotes and books jobs for select performers. The cost for this service varies and is dependent on your type of entertainment and the type of promotion you want. When we promote your act, we work for you and make sure we understand your professional and artistic needs and wants.

Our mission is to find work for you that reflects your individual talent. You no longer have to settle for “whatever” an agent finds for you.

 

NOTE: I highly recommend reviewing your press kit materials before attempting any networking. The quality of these materials can be the difference between a good impression and a bad one.

For additional information on how we can help you begin or expand your career as an entertainer, increase your profitability or simply help you along for a smoother ride as an established entertainer, call Brian Choper at 301-441-8899 or 301-658-6428.

Networking and Entertainers

Looking for gigs? Looking for other musicians/entertainers who could hire you to fill openings or spots with their bands or orchestras? One of the most important things Gigs For You can do for you is show you how to meet other people…those who can hire you to fill spots with bands…and people who are looking for music or other live entertainment for their upcoming events.

In order to make it easier for musicians and entertainers like yourself to meet one another and make connections with those who could hire you, Gigs For You encourages you to seek out and meet other musicians as well as people from your local business community. The more people who know you, the more likely one of them will think of you and call you for a job. So, if you are interested in finding new business as an entertainer, I encourage you to visit networking groups. There are usually at least one or two in every community. If you are not sure where to look, I would suggest contacting your local Chamber of Commerce. I have found no better method to meet-and-greet people other than at a concert or party.

NOTE: If you are interested in further assistance with this, call us at 301-441-8899 or 301-658-6428. We will see what we can do to help you.
