Make things, make things better and make things happen.
That's my motto.
At 31, I've spent...
- 20 years as an actor
- 7 years in Broadway marketing
- 3+ years coaching and consulting
Like you, I strive to make a difference and leave a legacy.
I also want to change the world.
Despite old-school prejudices and bureaucracies, I believe in a world of equal opportunity.
Social media has democratized power. With the touch of a button, you can reach just about anyone and everyone.
Before you can speak to seven billion people or even one VIP influencer, we have to figure out what you really want, how to present yourself and what to say.
My job (and joy) is to design your future.
I combine coaching with digital marketing and networking.
I love what I do. I love the online world and helping people to build their careers and businesses.
Alongside a small but mighty team, we find an online presence that works for you—not just your comfort zone, but a 24/7 international representation creating offline results.
Our clients are Emmy, Grammy and TONY award-winning artists, as well as seniors and students completely new to "the web" or "the business."
Our results include new films, Broadway and TV shows, A-list opportunities and relationships and even self-produced success. But you don't just have to take my word for it...
"Tony and his team delivered the website I envisioned—clean, crisp, modern, user-friendly and exciting! They’re extremely helpful once the site is launched as well as with excellent customer service, follow-up and analytics. I also love how many visitors to the site remarked at how easy this redo was to navigate. Thumbs up from everyone!"
-Lea Salonga, Artist
"Tony is a wonderful person to work with. I have complete confidence in him, his ideas, and could not have wished for a friendlier and creative person. The ability to control my own site, to update whenever I need and have it look professional and beautiful, I could not be any happier with the process. I’ve already gotten several jobs and emails from the website—from prospective students, performances, to a show on Broadway!"
-Ray Wong, Pianist
"Your course has given me more clarity on who I am as a performer and how I am reflecting myself online. Since the course, I've been offered two films through social media!"
-Simone McIntyre, Actress
"Hiring Tony was the best investment I made in my business as an artist. Tony helped me to clarify and create my brand. My booking rate has increased and I'm attracting organic projects as a result of working with Tony and his amazing team!"
-Sheilah Smiley, Actress + Comedian
"Tony provided me with a terrific coaching session for the website and social media content of my new non-profit company, New Amsterdam Opera. His critiques were extremely helpful, and the changes were very easy to implement to bring my web presence to a higher level!! The session was tough, thorough but always supportive. Thanks, Tony!!"
-Keith Chambers, Artistic Director
"It was actually an eye opening experience! I learned that we as actors can be neurotic and so concerned with self-image that we get in our own way sometimes. We accomplish so much, and yet we’re afraid to acknowledge it in fear of what others may say. I’ve heard nothing but wonderful feedback on my website. I’ve yet to use all the features, but managing it has been easier than I anticipated and that’s truly due to the diligence of Creative Social Media. They design their sites so that the power to represent yourself is in your hands... and that’s where the power truly lies."
-Jamaal Wilson, Actor
"Tony made the process of creating a website so easy and helped me create my place on the web. Tony is a social media expert on Backstage, which is where I discovered him. After reading his articles, watching his #TellMeTony videos and visiting his website, I knew Tony was the one for me. I am thrilled with my website and with Tony. He is direct, creative, professional and trustworthy. Not only did Tony deliver a beautiful, well crafted website but he exceeded my expectations all the way around."
-Mindee De Lacey, Actor
"Run to Tony and his team!!! Regardless if we're working together in person or over email, Tony applies the same thoughtful, kind, exuberance to me and my website. Before I began working with Tony, I had virtually no online presence—save for social media, which I wasn't taking advantage of. Now, I have a website that reflects me, what I do, and the skills to make my social media an additional professional source. An absolute worth it investment!"
-Victoria Cook, Actor
"You and your team are rock stars. You get it, you’re smart, and I like creating with you guys. I’m happy, my team is happy that represent me, and that’s what matters."
-Mark Price, Actor + Coach
"I decided that if I want to move to a higher level in my professional career, my online presence should reflect that. Tony has been my friend for a number of years and I knew I would be in capable hands with him. I loved our process. It was very individualized and lots of attention was paid to detail. Tony also asked me really tough, specific questions and I’m glad because that only made my site better that much better. I've gotten 100% positive feedback. People love the format, the simplicity, and clarity. They also love my new pictures taken by Justin Patterson Photography (who I cannot say enough good things about). It's been an investment, but I believe it'll pay off."
-Kate Loprest, Actor
"I loved Tony Howell’s understanding of my new ideas and his ability to communicate my vision digitally. Squarespace also looks so pretty on mobile so I knew I wanted to design it on that platform. The experience was collaborative with an efficient use of time. I really appreciate that. Also, the web traffic is converting into relationships and business."
-Di Ana Pisarri, Relationship Coach
"A dear friend said you wouldn't rip me off and that you are user friendly. She was right!! The process/experience was smooth. I still need to take a klonapin everytime I update my site, but that's because of my computerphobia. Everyone loves my new website, and I've gotten a few bookings."
-Karen Bergreen, Comedian + Author
