Yes, you have a boss! Even if you are an artist and you work for yourself, you have a boss. This is the person who have the budget to pay you !
How to successfully approach a talent agency, a producer, a show director…?
THE BAD METHOD.
Don’t talk too much about your artistic technique! Examples : my technique is unique, blablabla… I am the only artist in the world to do this… I’m in the Guinness Book World Record, blablabla… Even if it’s true, don’t talk too much about yourself, neither your technique! Don’t fall into the trap of the “EXPERT’S SYNDROME”, click here to see.
They don’t care about what you do. What they are interested in is what benefit you will bring them!
THE GOOD METHOD.
Show the benefits you will bring them, in other words, the positive impact your act will have on their business. You may as well know that your boss does not actually care about your show. They are only interested in the benefits they will gain from it:
- The financial benefits
- Bring a good brand identity for their business
- The emotions you will raise in their audience
That’s the main thing that you need to remember for today 🙂
