Marketing at the gig

Each performance you do is a showcase to another performance. People who see you perform personally will be more likely to hire you than anyone else. Learn to increase your chances by bringing a friend along to help you do the work. Have him/her take testimonial videos and talk with people about having your perform at their event. What your friend (tell people he is your agent) says about you is worth a lot more than what you say about you.

Automatically get clients by systematizing your business

Think in terms of how to make your business work automatically. Think about what you would do if you could only work 4 hours a week. How would you change your business so you can be more productive? Instead of you making calls, get people to do it for you. Instead of sending a newsletter to several people, get an email marketing service. You should always think of ways to be more productive, not busy.

Recommendation: buy (and read) 4-Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss
