Artists, Actors and Attraction Marketing Have you ever felt like the Artists, Actors, and creative fields are undervalued and unappreciated in our society, especially when it comes to income? Do you want a steady income and still want your Dream of your creative endeavor to come true? An artist, actor, or creative person who wants to make money in his or her field wants to get known and have exposure to more people and places. When you are just beginning, or stuck along the way, that may be a challenge. That is where the new way of Internet Attraction Marketing just fits like a glove for people in the creative arts. Internet Attraction Marketing has recently been taught by the gurus of the internet world who are showing "us" their secrets of how they have learned to bring people (leads) to them, instead of having to go hunt leads down the "traditional" way. The traditional way is spending money on leads, calling those leads, dealing with rejection, bothering family and friends and everyone who moves, spending a lot of money on advertising. There is little profit for the investment. What is the "new way" of marketing on the internet and getting yourself known to a wider audience? It starts with understanding Social Networking and seeing your talent or creative art as a product or service to share. So what are the benefits for you to start Social Networking with your business? Social Media and Web 2.0 is exploding on the internet and huge numbers of people are taking part in online Social Networking communities. It is enabling businesses to take advantage of amazing opportunities. NOW is a very good time to start and position yourself in the marketing revolution that is happening on the internet. Every day new people are signing up on Social Networking websites. These sites were originally formed with the motivation of building friendships and networks of like- minded social contacts. Now people are getting news, currents events, politics, finances, sports, watching videos, hobbies, listening to music, and discussing topics on social sites and forums - this is where the "people" are hanging out. It makes sense to go where they are and meet them there and for them to get to know you. It's free to socialize with the people in your networks online. Once you have begun communicating with others in the social communities you choose, one of the biggest benefits that will likely happen is...you will gain respect within your community and you will build an "Audience".
