Social Media, Your Best Friend
That's right! That thing you do at your day job that annoys your boss so much is exactly the thing that can help you to realize your dreams of success. Whether you're a novelist, screenwriter, filmmaker, or have a bridge you want to sell someone, social media is one of the best ways to get the word out.
Social media can help drive traffic to your blog or website, where you can grab the attention of your somewhat captive audience. Grab their attention, keep it, and PRESTO! You're building your presence.
Let's be honest. When it comes to publishers, agents, producers, etc., etc., they want to know that there are numbers backing their newest venture. That's what social media can bring us. Numbers. Lots of them.
Don't get me wrong. It's hard work. You need to build a following. That means being clever. It means reaching out. It means stepping out of our comfort zones. Hey, no pain, no gain, right?
And here's the other thing: we need to get our act together. If we drive traffic to our website, there better be something good there for them to see, right?
If you're a filmmaker, you need poster art, a electronic press kit, a trailer. Screenwriter? Same basic deal. Novelist? You too. Everything is moving toward the end game of getting a film made. Novelists have no longer "made it" until their books have been optioned and turned into the latest blockbuster. Twilight, anyone?
Here's the pitch part of the blog. Go to our website: www.zerotosoldtrailers.com. Check out our slick press kits, our stunning cover art, our amazing trailers. See for yourself what we have to offer.
In addition, due to overwhelming demand, we have started offering social media packages. We can help you to grow your following and online presence. We count among our clients one of today's most talented artists, a celebrity expert of one of the hottest reality TV shows around and a NYT bestselling author. We're helping them. We can help you.
More important than using our services, though, is just that you decide to get your stuff out there. You'll feel better. You know you will... :)
