Talent Promotion: (Young Voices Studio), During 1999-2007 I created a number of websites to showcase talent, originally created as a hobby fan site, in a way the site developed in recognition and rising of these stars, establishing a link between British fans and the stars.
During 1999-2007, I created a number of websites to showcase talent, originally created as a hobby fan site, the site gradually became popular as a number of actors on site became more known, in a way the site developed in recognition and rising of these stars, establishing a link between British fans and the stars.
Gradually the site became a gateway to promotion of other stars in film, talent shows (BGT, AGT), and music. The site helped a number of unknown stars to get noticed during Junior Eurovision and other contests. (the site was a starting point till a website was set up).
As this was still in early days of Internet, social media was not a know in Big Way, Youtube was still a glimmer. Basicly the only way at this time was to create forums to enable communications between fans and stars, researching stars though other agents and sites and other news sections.
I had compiled a number of contacts to communicate with, these include agents, webmasters, studios and actual connection with stars. This also saw communication with studios to help promote films (Using Google Ads, Amazon Ads) and especially those stars on my site. The site became well known and grew from a hobby to almost a fully-fledged talent site.
Through the site I continued to promote stars and site through Message boards, Social Media, video showcase, polls, contests and other media. Although site was dismantled, I have created this page and also Twitter to show support.
Creating the site was one thing but getting people to visit the site was another. Again early stages meant long way round to making sure google and other search engines knew my sites.
- Creating meta tags and keywords
- SEO Using google Analytics and other sites to monitor site and audiance
- Creating showcase videos, polls and images to promote on other sites, forums and websites
- Created an entertainment fan based website to promote new talent, including using google analytics and bespoke software to promote the webpage, forum and video. This developed as stars became popular and was reaching audience with over 1000 visits week, and gained contact with various tv/film studios and stars agencies
