"In order to take control of the business side of "the business" (at least in terms of website and social media), I knew this was the course for me. I wanted to take the next step in my career and I love how professional my website now looks! I also appreciate all of the personal attention that was given... seeing how the other peoples websites turned out and what their influences were and knowing no website would be cookie cutter. I love having the tools and knowledge to take things into my own hands. It doesn't give me anxiety anymore!"

"I wanted a website where I could compile information about my career in one place. The biggest value of this class is the final product.... a beautiful and functional homepage! However, watching Tony's design process and hearing the rationale behind each choice was invaluable. I feel like I'm better poised to launch my career in the direction I want to go. I have a better understanding of how to make myself more visible online and how to use the web for networking. I am set up to confidently make website adjustments on my own and am hoping the website will play a direct role in future bookings!"
-Daniel Hurst, DanielHurst.me
"Last year, I had spent money, time and effort to obtain new headshots, reels and demos. I felt that the best place to showcase these things was a website. I had tried to build one on my own, but I needed support. What seemed like an impossible thing became possible with Tony's class. I now have a website and can maintain it myself. Tony is inspiring—positive, personal, professional and passionate about the business! All of this comes through in his teaching, and I was so excited for every class!"

"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
"Love Tony’s way of looking at social media — he knows it is based in being real people first. I trust all his advice and have learned SO much from his course. I highly recommend his S.A.T. course. Brilliant—showed me how to use social media in a way I had never conceived of. Even if you think you know how to use social media, I guarantee this class will blow your mind."
-Shiloh Goodin, Actress + Choreographer
"Tony is a rockstar. He totally renovated my social media life, and, being the positive personality he his, also worked on some of my real life obstacles as well! So far, after just two weeks of work, I have seen more than a 25% increase in my Twitter followers, a similar increase in my Facebook followers, and have even gotten some promising employment feedback from those whom I respect greatly in the business. All of this is a result of working with a company that deeply understands and cares about its clients."
-Joe Redman, Actor
"The S.A.T. provided a large amount of information in a concise way. While it may have seemed overwhelming at the time, it fit easily into my already hectic schedule. The process was exciting and fun. I now have a super sexy website that works on mobile devices, made some VIP connections and learned how to post to maximize impact."
-Geoffrey Mergele, Actor
"This course has shown me clear steps for how to manage my online presence and keep moving forward. I’ve become more confident that artistically compatible people will be encouraged to reach out and interact with me through all my channels. And as I work on my channels, I gain confidence that those will be avenues for me to reach out to others. That leads me to the most important thing I got from this course: I got to stop stressing about it all."
-Bonnie Swencionis, Actress + Model
"I hate most things about ‘actor marketing’ and those people who typically ‘teach’ it, selling actors things they don’t need, like automated postcards that look like junk mail and self-descriptive adjective vomit. It’s all garbage, and I hate to think that actors are wasting their money. Therefore, it makes me grateful that someone is advocating ‘having something to say’ and knowing ‘how’ to say it. That will always be the most effective tool any actor can employ in hopes of marketing themselves, beyond their work itself."
-Michael Cassara, Casting Director + Producer
"Tony Howell’s mastery of social media as a tool actors can use to move their artistic careers ahead with intelligence, forethought and honesty is remarkable. He answers so many doubts I had had as a curmudgeon of the twentieth century and has made me feel I might well find more than a niche for myself in the twenty-first through social media."
-Jeremy Lawrence, Actor + Author
"What Tony's doing for artists in social media is nothing short of amazing. I lacked a real understanding of the power of social media, so I turned to Tony. He not only has expert knowledge of all of the different social media outlets, but he also has the ability to break things down into bite-sized pieces in order to teach those less media savvy how to succeed in this social media driven world. I have gained some great insight and some solid techniques to bring my social media presence to the next level."
-Alison Mahoney, Singer + Baker
"Social media was something I'd been avoiding, mostly out of fear. Realizing that the entertainment industry has been steadily embracing social media more and more, I needed help in this arena. Tony is incredibly knowledgeable and generous with his expertise. I learned a tremendous amount."
-Rachel Errington, Actor + Entreprenuer
"Tony has extensive experience doing social media for other businesses. In this course, he uses his experience to teach you how to do it yourself: cutting out the middleman, slashing costs, and teaching you ways to do it all without living glued to your phone! This course costs less than hiring a social media expert to work on your business for a month, and it gives you all the tools to do it for yourself forever. His guest experts are also second to none. This combination of systems, feedback, and lasting tools constitutes an unbelievable value. I simply couldn't recommend this course more highly!"
-Bonnie Swencionis, Actor, Model + Entrepreneur
"Tony Howell and Creative Social Media provide clear and concise training to better reach target audiences. Some concepts seem too simple to be effective, but you would be surprised at how the simplest steps can make a world of difference! Some concepts are a little more complex, but Tony makes sure to guide you smoothly along the journey to quality content and effective strategies to serve oneself and clients on social media."
-Geoffrey Mergele, Performing Artist
"Tony adds pizzazz to any course he teaches. He is constantly discovering current trends, and is so generous with his knowledge and know-how. If you have a business, if you want to work for a business, you NEED the Social Business Training. Put yourself out front—be seen and heard for the right reasons! Tony is always there to answer questions, to help you create specificity for your brand and to give you a high five. This isn't a one-size-fits-all course. This is a 'find the size that fits YOU' course. I can't recommend it highly enough!"
-Susan Eichhorn Young, Singer + Studio Owner
"Tony is so passionate about what he does—and it comes out so clearly in all his trainings! Tony makes social media accessible and not so overwhelming!
-Rachel Errington, Actor + Entreprenuer
"By stepping back and asking myself some important questions, I am more grounded in the artist that I am and where I am going. I am much more aware of the need for connecting and reaching out via social networks. I have a newfound awareness of what role social media plays and am working on incorporating these new skills into my daily life. Oh—and I built my first website! I am super proud that I could even do that. With Tony’s help and guidance, I got it done!!!"
