Being a part of Social media is more than keeping up appearances. It is responding to the digital world in real time. Its not a new technology its called the internet (the ever evolving digital universe as I call it).
I look at it as when the rubber meets the road!
Inspiration comes in many forms. As the social media scene continues to grow in popularity so does the competition for representation. I know its a little early for making new years resolutions but I would really love to break into the “voice-over” talent scene!
I feel Beau Weaver put it best in his voice over FAQ section of his page “…It’s acting off camera.” Can someone who was only in Drama class in the eight grade become a voice-over mogul? … Hardly!
Yes there is tons of competition in the acting arena and it’s my prediction that the social media scene wont be any different as time goes on. Companies really have 2 choices: Hire a person or Hire a firm to do their social media management.
It never ceases to amaze me that there are companies out there that have not tapped into the true value of having a social media presence. The choice to have one actually holds many benefits starting with the ability to promote specials/products online and to get priceless feedback from existing customers.
Social media is now more than ever the avenue to tap into and speak loudly without ever saying a word! Irony yes but what really holds true is that this is a new concept for many companies and as opposed to going it alone there are options and picking one is the start to solidifying their social media presence on the internet.
