New Post: Marketing at the gig

I just finished a gig at a hotel where nothing but buyers attended. This was a showcase by a hotel for people interested in having events. And it naturally made me want to make a video about how to do marketing while you're performing to increase your chances of getting hired.

The video also has someone in it that most of you know :)

One of the things I do is use my business cards anytime I write something or have a spectator write something.

Another good piece of advice that I use now, which came form a good friend of mine named Danny Ray ( who is also a working pro ). . .ok. Hold up. Actually his wife shared it with me, sorry Danny :). Their idea was to sign my website, instead of my name, so when ever I scribble my signature it looks like this, robertmichaels.net

When I do my signed torn and restored card or have a spectator sign something, I also sign it with my website. My website has a simple close-up demo on it that I did years ago with a cheesy camera and it gets me gigs :)

During a stage performance I give out at least 5 biz cards that have an emotional connection attached to them, because the spectator wrote something down that became a miracle. This way I'm not just giving them a card, its a memory to them that they will hold on too.

New Post: Motivation by Will Smith

I'm a big believer in taking a look at other successful people and paying attention to their psychology. Will Smith is very successful and the way he thinks of the world around him is very different than most people. Watch the video and pay very close attention to his psychology.

Restaurants are my base of operation. They are the reason I book most of my bigger gigs. Good stuff Benji.
