How The Movie Industry and Blogging Are Similar. Read On »
By Tyler Dewitt December 17, 2010

blogging and moviesI just relocated to Los Angeles, California. The culture out here is way different then any where I have been. There is a lot of people out here that think like entertainers and are entertainers. It’s very hard to explain the culture out here unless you live around here. You’d have to actually live here to really understand it. I don’t think you’d understand it by just visiting (you have to live it).

Blogging is about thinking like an entertainer. Your entertaining other people’s needs more then less. There are many of us out there that are excellent writers or just creative people. However, we just don’t really entertain people and their needs.

Strategies for Thinking Like an Entertainer

1) Be Creative

Think like a creative artist, do stuff that is out of this world. You can use videos, images, and / or sounds. Find ways to drive your audience’s attention. Video is a great strategy tool to engage in. I have seen people on You Tube create videos that drove millions of visitors. Over 99 percent of the videos were just straight out right simple to make. They just happen to upload something that was so stupid that people had to watch it.

2) Don’t Be Scared or Shy

Don’t ever be scared or shy to be so out there. Some people want to be famous or have a business. However, they always hide their true identity or who they are. If you are blogging, you should never do this. You want people to know who you are, what your about, and etc. You must be able to communicate effectively with your audience.

3) Be Inspirational

You could be inspirational towards your audience. Be someone that everyone wants to be like. You can do this through credibility, sharing your success. There again, don’t be scared to market yourself. I know some people that have major success in certain areas. However, they fail to market their success right away.

4) Focus on Your Audience

You should always keep your audience in mind. Never ever forgot how you got where you are today. Or better yet where you are trying to go. Remember the key is to entertain your audience. I think all of us (including myself) get a little to into our self at times. We fail to entertain the people around us, this is something that takes practice.

5) Don’t Ever Give Up

As any successful person will say. You should never give up. Success is about persistent and perseverance. I know many people that have went years without making money. I didn’t start making money for awhile. Then boom I did over a million dollars in one year. On the other hand, I’ve known people that gave up with then 2-6 months.

Conclusion

Blogging does have a lot to do with entertaining. I am quite glad I move to Los Angeles, California to be honest with you. It has opened me up to a whole new world. I’ve never experienced anything like it in my life. The more and more I think of it as I’m exploring LA, I realize business and blogging is about entertainment. You have to entertain people in ways they will find it attractive and likable.
