Promoting my Acting Blog

Filed under: message to the readers — Eitan @ 4:33 pm

Quick, look over to the right hand side. Do you see two new boxes you’ve never seen before?

The first one is a system called Blogrush. It will list posts on other blogs similar to mine. When that happens it will also list my posts on other blogs to widen my audience. Cool, right?

The second box belongs to Entrecard. This is similar in that it allows me to place ads on other blogs who will in turn place ads on mine.

Three questions you no doubt have:

Why did I do this? Because I want the publicity. I want as many people to read my blog as possible. And it’s another way to marketing myself as an actor.  I’ll keep on top of them to keep the junk to a minimum.

Am I making/spending any money on this? Heck no. I decided long ago against running ads on this site for money. The people who advertise to actors through the internet don’t tend to be the most ethical. There are WAY too many people who run scams trying to sell you overpriced classes and “modeling portfolios.” The only reputable people who advertise this way seem to be headshot photographers and since I do some headshot photography myself it’d be silly to send them my traffic. And both of these services are free, which is just lovely.

How do you do this too? Simple, click on this link for Entrecard (or the box right below the ad) and this one for Blogrush (or the link right below the list of posts). You just copy some code to your sidebar. Both sites have extended help sections on how to do this, don’t worry.

  5. You’ll be disappointed with Blogrush within a week and remove it. I’ll bet you 50 Entrecard credits.
