One would think that impersonating a famous celebrity will instantly get you some gigs. Unfortunately, that is the furthest from the truth. It’s not enough to look, sound and act like your celebrity persona. In order to get a constant flow of work, you need to promote yourself at every chance you can get. If you don’t, then you will find yourself in between jobs, a lot.
What should you do to tell the world that you are here? Well, let me sing to you the praises of self-promotion through digital marketing. You see, when I first got started, I got a few gigs here and there, but it was sporadic. It wasn’t something I could rely on for a stable source of income. However, I was good at it. Even more than that, I loved doing it. SEO Services and Online Marketing Can make a Huge Differnce
After a while, I finally decided that this is what I want to do. Period. From that point on, I did whatever I could to get work as a celebrity impersonator. I even added more personas to my repertoire. I just got better and better. Unfortunately, that didn’t do much for getting me more appearances. Don’t get me wrong. A lot can be said for word-of-mouth referrals and agencies. However, I knew that I can be doing more to get discovered.
So, I turned to the internet, the good old World Wide Web. I had a website designed just for me and my act. Then I put the link on my resume. I also sent it to clients, friends, family, etc. I pretty much followed what everyone else said that I should be doing. I got some more work, but it was still a trickle.
It wasn’t until I read about search engine optimization, and started implementing key words into my online marketing, that I finally saw real results. I immediately shot up the search engine result rankings. From then on, whenever someone types my name or my celebrity persona, my website pops up. It was awesome. What’s even better is the calls for more work started coming in and I did get busier. In fact, I got so busy that I no longer can handle doing my own digital marketing. As a result, it became a never-ending cycle and I found myself getting no rest.
At the recommendation of a friend, I decided to turn to a digital marketing agency in Whitby, Ontario called Magnet Labs Design to take over management of my online presence. It turned out to be the best thing I ever did. Not only did they take over my online marketing, but they optimized my website even more. It was amazing. They made search engine optimization into an absolute science.
Let me be the first to tell you that I would not be where I am today if it were not for the wonders of digital marketing, search engine optimization and the great people at Magnet Labs Design. Because of them, I have been able to make a career out of something I love.
