Social media is here to stay. As a performer, your challenge is to use these services to your advantage. Here are some easy tips to keep you on top of your social media strategy.

-Have a website? Great! Make sure to feature links to your social networking accounts on the website. Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, YouTube and Google+ are all appropriate.

-Start a Facebook Fan page, and use this page only to post about your juggling and events. Facebook Profile pages are for friends. People who don’t know you in real life might not be comfortable adding you as a friend, but they don’t mind telling everyone that they “like” you.

-Are you performing somewhere? Make sure your friends and followers know about it! This includes Facebook posts, invites, e-vites, tweets and more.

-Keep your YouTube videos short! Shorter videos are more likely to be shared on social media websites.

-Maintaining a blog will help you rank higher in Google searches. It’s easy to do; all it takes is time. WordPress and Blogger are both easy-to-use blogging platforms.

-Active Twitter user? Use an application like Buffer App to space out your tweets and help you gain more followers. Operating multiple accounts? Use a program like TweetDeck or HootSuite to help you juggle your accounts.

-Do you own a smart phone? Use it to share video and photos from your events or practice sessions in real time.
