Entertainers believe performances could lead to fans, being discovered, selling merchandise, and a chance to tour with a headliner. This is when people start to make choices based on assumptions. Fans grow with Brand awareness. When no one is at a show, how can you build your fan-base? Why would a Headliner bring an unknown with them? What does that Brand have to offer? A Booking Agent handles tour arrangements. It could happen if a relationship is built with that headliners interest
Think outside the box. A performance could not lead to being hired for a specific job. A new teacher will not get hired because they teach already. Face-time with faculty helped build relationships to be heard or even considered for that job. This goes for any job. How does a person get a job if they are not already doing that job? Through Networking with people of note, marketing a Brand’s value and Practicing said craft to be capable of completing said job.
Performing is a Give. A Give is a gift to an already established fan-base. If a Brand does not have 10,000 audience members interested in seeing a performance, then bookers will not care nor will shows / performances make a difference at that point. Think outside the box. Over time, a performer should try different things if their way is not working. Let past failures of others teach how they did or did not succeed on their own. It came down to more than performing. Network, Market, and Practice!
