There are many great artists out here struggling to make it while others seem to magically succeed even though they may not be as talented.  It’s not because of lack of jobs.  There are plenty of jobs out there for those who know how to find them.  It’s not because of lack of training.  There are plenty of educational sources. So, what is the problem?

We have found the reasons for this is based on Artist Attitude & Exposure.   Individuals who invest in themselves by taking training, attending seminars, doing competitions, going on auditions, and doing pro bono work get the necessary exposures they need to prove they live what they do.

For example, these people have published works such as headshots/pictures, video content, business cards, resumes/portfolios (in a website), YouTube page and other forms of marketing. 

The other less fortunate artists usually have the attitude that they can do it all themselves and are reluctant to work with or try to help others.  They live in a constant state of competitiveness that actually prevents them from competing.

Unless you’re some kind of protege, you must have training and experience to be taken seriously by people who have the money, will, and power to promote your career.  Realize the commercial industry uses entertainment as a means of promotion and they do not have time to waste.  They need people who know how to get the job done quickly and efficiently. They also look for Artists who already have a following.  Having a following is sure to increase your odds of getting more work.

You can win your dreams with the right attitude and exposures.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly
    appreciated. Kudos

    1. Thank you for your comment. We are always happy to share our knowledge.

      To start a blog, you will need a domain name with hosting from somewhere like Godaddy or Blue Host. Via your hosting account, you can install the WordPress application and attach it to your domain. Using WordPress, you can design and build pages & posts using the templates WordPress provides. WordPress is a simple to use platform but it does require some training. Fortunately there are trainings available for free on YouTube however we prefer the training provided at Lynda.com.

      The cost of starting a blog is minimal. You can get a domain name as cheap as $2 at some places however if the name is popular and for sale, you could pay a lot more. Hosting normally runs around $60 per year but could be more or less depending upon which hosting provider you use. WordPress offers a wide range of free website templates but they also have some really nice templates you can purchase from gifted designers.

      You don’t have to be very internet savvy to learn to do this but if you need assistance, we can help you.
