Shameless Self Promotion for Performers

September 4, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm




A lot of creative people get stuck on the idea of marketing their art. They say “well, I don’t want to brag about myself” or “I don’t like the “M” word” or “I am better at promoting OTHER people”

Do you LOVE practicing the art of acting or performing but when it comes to shouting out loud about your goals, accomplishments, and events, suddenly you become very shy?

As a result, do you feel your system for promoting your projects comes down to hoping that the Show Biz Gods will see how hard you have studied and how good you are and you will be rewarded with an audience?



I didn’t like the “M” word either when it came to MY own work but I’ve come to realize that there are people out there who would love to know about my stories yet they never will if they don’t hear about them.

If performers have got something to say, they need to make the connection between the work that they are doing and the people who need to see it.

This seminar will help. 



My name is Doug Motel. I’m a visual and performing artist whose “day job” has been as an internet marketing consultant. I have even written a book about and spoken at conferences all over the country.

I have helped my clients get featured on Oprah and E! Entertainment Television, as guests on The View and I even had one of the videos I produced for a client get featured on The Tonight Show.

I know what it’s like to create entertainment for people AND I also know how to get the word out about it. 



I am doing a live event called SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION and you really may want to attend it if you are a performer. If you have something to say, you should be out there marketing yourself without shame!


I’m going to share a ton of the tricks I have learned over the years that help raise awareness about you and your work. After attending SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION, you will be armed with a bunch of new tools for getting people to download your music, sign up for your newsletter, Like your Facebook page, write articles about you and get people to your gigs. 

Your talent is just the beginning, this seminar will help you with the business and marketing side of the music industry and take you to another level.



Addresses what I think of as the “Yin” or “beingness” of valuing yourself as a performer. We will play some fun games that will help you to write an artist’s mission statement so you can articulate exactly what makes you different as an artist. We will also explore The Wheel of a Balanced Career and make sure that you are setting yourself up for success. 

We will touch briefly on the context of being a performer and WHY it is such a noble, essential profession (especially nowadays.)



The second part of the evening is more of the “YANG” stuff. The actual, practical steps such as: What platform is most important for performers…What you should and shouldn’t post on Facebook, How you can get featured articles in Newspapers via Twitter etc..

In this intensive you will learn how to:

  • Set up your Facebook page so that Google will love it
  • Use Facebook cover images as magnets for your email list
  • Embed your mailing list sign-up form into your Facebook page
  • Produce a great YouTube video made from audio and stills
  • Get your YouTube videos to come up at the top of Google
  • Use Twitter to sell tickets to your gigs 
  • Plus many more insider tips and tricks


I am so confident that you will leave this event with a whole new way of approaching your marketing plan as a performer that if somehow you are not completely impressed, I will happily refund your tuition 100%.


This event is a rare West Coast date and will be held at a private home. You will get receive the street address in San Rafael in your confirmation email.
