Public Relations, commonly referred to as PR, is hands down the best way to stay seen and available. Celebrities hire firms to do nothing other than keep their face and name in the limelight and on the collective public mind. That popularity pays off in high dollar endorsements, advertising, spokes-modeling, and lead film or television roles.
If you can’t afford the costs of the high powered PR firm yet, there are other ways to accomplish staying visible in your local market.
One of the most simple ways to stay in the public eye is to do something positive in your community. Charities always need entertainers for fund raising events, for example. If you’re willing to get your hands dirty, volunteering for manual labor projects like Habitat for Humanity are a good fit. Serve food in a homeless shelter, assist in growing the arts in your local school system, or put together an improv troupe to bring smiles and laughter into a nursing home. The possibilities are endless, but choose something you will love so it doesn’t feel like an obligation.
Being active in community efforts and improving the lives of the people in your immediate surroundings is not only a good way to stay connected and in the public eye, it’s also fulfilling! Being able to fully appreciate your good fortune will help keep your chin up through all the hard knocks of entertainment, too.
