How to Be on a TV Show - a Step by Step Out of the Box Approach of Building Your Fan Base from the Producers of Magic Neighbors: You Can't Borrow Honey from a Zombie
How to be on TV? Think outside of the box. Ask someone how to be on TV and chances they will say something like Get a picture and resume, get an agent and then get sent out on auditions to book a part on a show. That's all well and good and that is how some actors now on TV have done it, but the reality is that times and technology have changed and that approach really doesn't work for most people anyway. Why do we say this? just ask the millions of emerging actors out there trying to get their big break if this system is working for them. The large percentage of them may be filled with hope and give you examples of connections they have made in the entertainment industry, but when push comes to shove, they still are not on TV.
What then is different about this new approach?
The people we work with have actually worked with actor clients who went from being total unknowns to being stars of major hit TV shows. How did they help them? Why were these individuals' clients able to succeed while thousands upon thousands of actors have failed? The answer is in the the methodology.

a Step by Step out of the Box
Approach to Building Fans
ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE
Even Shakespeare said something along the lines of All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely playing the parts of job seekers, business starters or project makers looking for investors.” (not quite an exact quote of the Bard!)
The point being that in life we are in a sense actors playing a role. An actor playing the role of looking for a job. An actor playing the role of starting a business. An actor playing the role of doing a project and looking for investors for that project. So in a sense we are all neighbors and thespians in a world that is like a giant theater troupe, all fulfilling our dramatic purpose in a big theatrical production.
That’s the idea behind the Magic Neighbors movement and that’s the idea behind the new book “How to Be on a TV Show”.
A Unique, Creative and Fun Approach
This is a tested and proven system by someone who has actually helped actors go from being unknowns to being the stars of hit TV shows.
You Can Do It if You Are Motivated
The fact is there are a lot of actors who come from all over the world to New York City to make it here because then you can make it anywhere (or so the song says). Many of them work very very hard taking acting classes, doing off off Broadway theater showcases, acting in student films and working day jobs. But most of them will not make it because they are still using the old model of acting success which is no longer effective.
In a sense, if you follow the procedures of how to be on a TV show you can fulfill other goals including “How to Get a Job”, “How to Start a Business” and “How to Finance a Project”. These are the major sections of the book “How to Be on a TV Show” broken down into smaller sections or chapters.
THE RANDOM SUBWAY RIDE THAT STARTED IT ALL
The book “How to be on a TV Show” starts with an introduction called “The Random Subway Ride that Started it All” by a person who discussed his client and a random subway ride he took with her.
This actressh went from being an unknown in front of a studio green screen to being one of the leads on a hit cable TV show. This Platinum Pias Award winner is just one of the clients who successfully followed the path of how to be on a TV show.
And in the book “How to Be on a TV Show” there is discussion about the random subway ride in New York City with the actress where they discussed the Magic Neighbors project and the idea was born for new ways that artists could build visibility for themselves by helping their neighborhoods.
This actress, lived in the Northern NYC Inwood Manhattan Washington Heights Green area and from his conversation with her he developed a community outreach marketing system that was a win-win for creative people and their communities.
WHAT IS YOUR LINK TO FANS?
In this edition of How to Be on a TV Show magazine we are going to discuss two things: the first is a new book entitled How to Be on a TV Show, available as an instant digital download, while the other is the Magic Neighbors fan club for which membership is complimentary and has been compared to Harry Potter, Glee and Night of the Living Dead and is budding magic, mirth and mystery franchise for those who want to be on a TV show. And to start we are going to explore the secret of how to find your link to fans and then be able to actually act on it.
Why do you need a link to fans? Because you need to be connected. You need to first identify who your fan is, how to connect to him or her and ultimately how to keep him or her supporting you. But why do you need fans? To get on a TV show of course!
Most people try to be on a TV show by getting a picture/resume with the plan to try to get a good agent who will get them auditions and then to get cast on a TV show. This is the old approach which is very difficult to succeed with - just ask any emerging actor in New York City! Now an expert who has actually helped actors go from being unknowns to being on hit TV shows, shows you how having a step by step out of the box approach to building fans will position you to be desirable to the entertainment industry to being put on a TV show.
Why? Because the entertainment industry, though in part based on the artistic prestige of winning awards like the Platinum Pias Awards, is also based very much so on popularity.
Why? Because think about it, would you watch a TV show if there wasn't anyone on it who you liked to watch and is therefore popular? Sure, you may say - I want to be on a TV show so I want to be popular but these days that is putting the cart before the horse. Because with so much competition out there for getting on shows, a better strategy is to become popular first then get on the show because producers know you are popular and have an audience and want to capitalize on that.
So how do you find and link to these fans? Details are in the book “How to be on a TV Show >>
HOW YOU CAN AFFECT FANS ALL OVER THE WORLD
But how, if you are an artistic and creative person who focuses on your acting arts, do you actually become popular enough to convince the entertainment industry you should be on a TV show?
As you may know there are a lot of stories out there on how YouTube has launched careers for people to be on a TV show. Though, how do you make a YouTube video popular? It should be noted that with the How to be on a TV fan building technique, a popular video is only a very small part of the equation.
Just because you have a video online does not mean you are going to affect people all over the world. Actually touching people in the first place is hard because even if they have the makings of being your perfect fan you have to first reach them.
TV shows are a thing in our culture that many people would like to be on. And now with the internet there are TV shows online. Plus, we are currently in an era where an individual can put his or her own TV shows for free on the web using the magic of magicsodes. But how does this actually get someone who is inclined to watch TV shows, actually BE on a TV show?
There is of course a step by step industry procedure that many other how to book will tell you which has to do with getting a picture and resume and an agent and then going on auditions and eventually getting that TV supporting role.
Unfortunately for many, you may not actually live in a major industry hub like New York City, let alone are able to get an agent and for that matter ever ace an audition to the point of getting casting directors or industry professionals to pick you.
The odds are very much against you that you will ever succeed this way. Sure, there are literally thousands of books that can outline the procedure, but ask most emerging actors in New York City if this is working for them and if they are actually getting on TV shows, they may talk about the various opportunities they have, but most will not have even taken that first step of even having been on a guest appearance.
So imagine if there was a way to communicate regularly with your fans all over the world but first you had to make them aware of this way. What is this “point of contact” and how do you make them aware of it?
These are the little known strategies revealed in the book “How to be on a TV Show”.
