In Their Words:
A Brief Description of by Barry Friedman
In January 2009 I started an online membership community to train entertainers on how to sell their show to any market – fairs, festivals, cruise ships, clubs, and yes – even corporate!

While entertainers are very good at writing jokes, juggling fire, making cars disappear, putting a voice into a dummy, or singing a song, they have historically been lousy marketers.

My 52-week training course is the first of its kind. The integration of SimplePress Forum has really taken the community to new places. A group that has normally been very protective of their ideas is openly sharing and collaborating on strategies.

I provide the curriculum along with premium services including coaching, promotional material reviews, and custom writing services.

I have membership levels 1 – 52 and each week members are added to the next class. I have gotten all my members to the community by giving away a 7-Day Training Course that teaches more than most entertainers will ever know about marketing an act.”

    Nice clips. The video is engaging.

    Barry how do you stay steady with water
    cascading into your eyes.

    You will need to do a show for WLM when
    we gather.

    Take care

  2. Hi Ken,

    I’ve been juggling most of my life… it takes very little thought at this point – even with water dripping in my eyes.

    WLM show! Sounds great.

    But even more fun that juggling and touring the world is running a membership site… sounds strange, eh? You see, the last year and a half I have been earning money without getting on a plane and making jokes. Now that’s magic!

    Nothing funny about that.

    Keep up the great work. This group is a real inspiration.

    Take care

  4. Wow!!! I shouldn’ say more than that…

    You guys rock! Now I know why I’m not getting as many corporate gigs – it’s becasue you get them all 🙂

    Great membership site too. I’ll definitely give it a try…

  5. E.G. – Great site! Are you looking to turn that into a membership site?

    If you want to advertise my site on your site you you can be an affiliate. It’s converting really well right now as this is the slow time for corporate work and people are looking for ways to improve!

    Are you a Clickbank member? Here is the hoplink:

    Wishing you all the success you want!


  6. Cool site Barry! Love the niche you’ve got. Seems like you could easily create an awesome following.

    Are you using the points plugin for your members?

  7. Hi Steve,

    I don’t! Never heard of points until I came here. Kind of funny… do you know if it can be added and points will be rewarded retroactively?

      You can always add the Points system, but I’m unsure if the points would be added automatically.

      My guess is that it would be a “starting NOW…” type deal.

      But, you could always manually add points to members.

      • What is the points plugin? Would love to add it. I’m using simple press forums – can it be applied? That’s the only place members post/interact. My content is comments closed.

    Get More Corporate Gigs is a great title. I took time and reviewed your site. I even bookmarked it because the information is invaluable. Isn’t it great what you can do with your site using Wishlist? You have done a great job Congratulations!
