Networking is imperative; Thinking you can get there without networking… we think not!

Today’s Tip – Networking is imperative; Thinking you can get there without networking… we think not! –

Networking, as we established yesterday is one of the most important things in your arsenal to succeed. Prior to this week’s blog posts you may have been thinking that you provide a great thing to the public, you perform! Why yes, yes you do, but to whom? For people who run a business, they already know its importance. People starting out in entertainment or entrenched in a certain mindset though seem to think it doesn’t matter. They PERFORM, everything else will happen on its own, untrue!

You perform, your friends come. You were great, your friends tell you, you feel good. That covers it right. Next show, your friends come, well most of them. You were great again they tell you so and they tell each other, you feel good. Next show, your friends are busy only one or two come out they apologize for the others, they again tell you it was good and leave. What now? No one new came, why do you think that might be? Maybe you should invite your family too, yes it’s a trick. Networking is important, don’t kid yourself, don’t lie to yourself.

You must network to succeed you don’t have to perform. Performing is the fun part, or should be it’s not work it’s a hobby. Working is networking and marketing and practicing so when you perform your hobby people care, they show up and give you money. Time and time again people tell us that all they ever need to do is perform, oddly enough most of these people have been performing for 10 plus years and have gotten nowhere. If they are doing it because they enjoy performing and they like the feeling they get then kudos to them. That’s great they achieved their goal, they had fun and to them that was the important part. If you want more though than simple applause, you need to do more to get it.

Short today, we know but it needed to be pointed out. We know many people who act, sing, dance or write for their own enjoyment. They have fun doing it. Even if you aren’t in whatever your chosen craft is for the money. Wouldn’t you rather play to a full audience then a half empty room? I know I would.
