I loved my time with Geek & Sundry, they spoiled me rotten those first few years. I’ll be honest, I lucked out with them. It was a timing thing. I was getting the ball rolling on competing in the World Thumb Wrestling Championships in England, and Jenni Powell (our producer of Fictional Fares) was producing the new vlogger channel at G&S and asked me to vlog about it. So like they say, a lot of it is luck, timing, and who you know.
Otherwise. Building your audience: Keep track of what people are responding to in your work like crazy: Who’s watching what, for how long. What types of your content is getting more views, comments, reposts. Everything. Carve out your brand from there.
Once you’re feeling good about that, check out the various websites, channels or companies that seem like the best match for your type of material/brand. And collaborate. Film, TV, Youtube, it’s all collaborative after a certain point. Don’t be afraid to work with others in any capacity, it will only help you.
What I learned from working with G & S? Trust your gut. Fight for whats important to you. You are your biggest ally and advocate.
