Open that mic up — get some exposure and network with your fellows!

Looking to get into your craft? Go to an open mic. Poet, comedian, musician, actor, business-person… go to an open mic and let it out on stage, or walk around networking and marketing yourself… Open mics are good to open a door.

Microphones on stages make changes! If you are an entertainer get out there on a stage. Not that performing will be a guide to your success, but what comes from being on a stage, or near it. Break your cherry of not being on stage, make friends and get use to being in front of a ton of… okay ten people. Networking, Marketing and Practice, you need all three of these things to make something happen in your career. Of course why a business person? Because you breaking your fear of talking in front of groups will help you in meetings or dealing with new clients. Just go on stage and talk to the crowd. You don’t have to be funny, just mingle your words among them.

An advantage to jumping on an open mic night opens doors into a club/venue you might not have been able to get into yet. Plus, you get stage time to workout your kinks in whatever act it is. Get all you can out of your night making an entrance into a new path. Don’t mistake this time as your time, it is your time to make it everyone else time. Networking is about other people. Utilize all your opportunities during these trips to an open mic. If you are getting into performing, or you have been performing for many years, still learn from the room. Don’t just use it for time on a stage. Really practice what it is you are doing in this business… YOUR BUSINESS!

What is an open mic night? It is an open call for entertainers to come to a club/venue. Don’t forget this is a double sided effort. A venue is looking to build their clientele both through entertainers coming and their fan-base/friends. Yes, they are giving you a chance to be seen, stage time and some avenues to get your name out there, but don’t forget to give them some respect back! Promote their open mic night and bring some people if you can. Buy a drink, or do whatever you can to help that venue out. Most of all, have FUN!!!
