If you're an actor and are not using social media sites like YouTube, you are doing yourself a huge disservice. The reality is that there is SO much competition for jobs in the entertainment industry that even getting an audition is like winning the lottery! So, why wait around for your agent to get you auditions? Use what you have right in front of you! Chances are, right now, it's a computer or a smart phone. (Look at my psychic abilities at work!!) ;)
Your computer and your smart phone, which usually has a video camera on it, are all that you need.
Get out there and start showing the world what you're good at! Maybe it's singing, acting, or another amazing talent! You'd be surprised what people find very interesting to watch! Personally, once I started posting videos to YouTube and using twitter more often, my life in the entertainment industry changed a lot -for the better! I am now able to share a positive message with people that I don't know! I'm able to make funny videos. Agents are now able to see some of what I can do online, and this makes me more 'marketable' overall in the biz! It's also a lot of fun! AND, you have the potential to make some money off of the views on your videos.
The best part about social media in general? Making new friends!! I love all of you Daliens out there!! xxxx
