"If I could give Tony ten stars, I would! I've worked with Tony on not one, but two projects now. I set up a recent session with him in regards to my YouTube series that I've created. I knew Tony could help focus my goals, teach me tricks, help me fine tune my brand and take things to the next level. When I walked in at the start of our meeting, Tony jumped right in with an incredible game plan for me and a lot of information I am now able to take with me and use to further my project and career. I'm already looking forward to the next time I get to meet with him! He is worth every penny and more."
-Hillary Colleen Smith, Actor + Sports Reporter
"Tony was so helpful with my website. I'd already built the majority of it, and he generously helped solve a couple of issues I couldn't crack on my own. He listened very attentively to my questions, addressed each very thoroughly, and helped me with issues I didn't even know I had. After my meeting with Tony, I felt much better about the progress I'd made and about how to get the most out of my site!"
-Adam Wolfe, Drummer
"Tony helped me with tweaks on my website that ended up being invaluable. He turned what was previously a multi-step process in getting new clients into a 1-step process. It's made all the difference in putting on new business. Now, when someone contacts me through my website, they've already made the decision to work with me. I don’t have to 'sell' them on anything. Working with Tony was eye-opening, informative, game-changing and, also, a lot of fun."
-Michael Buckley, Entrepreneur
"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
"I met Tony through a seminar via Stagedoor Connections, and I instantly knew from his energy I wanted to work with him more personally! He is warm and friendly, but also a wealth of knowledge, tips, tricks, and advice! He is generous and makes the overwhelming task of trying to conquer the world wide web feel more achievable! I feel lucky to have crossed his path."
-Erika Lynn Guthier, Dancer
"Tony was super helpful in our meeting and really helped me clarify my social media plan. He is extremely knowledgable and makes the world of social media not so overwhelming. He's such a sweet person and made me feel like he really cared about my success!"
-Kelsey Andres, Performing Artist
"Tony is fantastic! I've consistently come to Tony with specific social media questions and with specific goals in mind. He comes to the table with organized research and thoughts prepared for our work together that delivers productive food for thought and direction that leads towards success! And - he does it in his way - his style - which is personable, positive, and comprehensive!!!"
-Fran Kirmser, Producer
"I'm a quick learner, so I asked Tony to give me the most important things I needed to know to understand and build a Twitter following. In one strategy session, he gave me some highlights and I took every single one of them and applied them and they worked! When I started with Tony, I had about 500 followers. That was a year ago and now I have more than 6600. But the number isn't as important to me as what it has generated. I have received lots of media coverage, connected with major players in the music business, been asked to write for several publications and have met people in person and formed relationships ALL because of Tony and what he taught me about engaging on Twitter!"
-Leslie Becker, Creative
"We got everything that we were hoping for and more! Tony was so great with giving us actionable ideas and information that we have so, so much explore. His expertise is thorough, relevant and so valuable! We've been able to further refine and streamline our entire social media approach, as well as implement some fresh and fun content ideas. I have and will continue to recommend Tony to anyone looking to refine or beef up their digital marketing and branding strategy."
-Jason Weston, Photographer
"I’ve learned from Tony and Get Creative Social Media how to handle information efficiently. It’s like Tony upgraded our tool from mallets and stone to scalpels and lasers. Though it was a very hectic time in our season when we had him, we still were able to streamline many aspects of the organization’s media. We can now confidently focus on the avenues of communication with our audiences which were not as clear before. Simplifying what can seem chaotic to a system we can manage (that starts with where we actually are and then growing from there) was a gift."
-Marcus Paul James, Media Director
"In order to do this social thing right, I simply cannot do it all myself. Tony is my social media manager. He is fabulous and a world of knowledge on all things social. Everything he does is brilliant. Plus, HE’S FUN! There's no end to how much I can learn from him and the ever-changing world of social media."
-Mary Anna Dennard, Author + Coach
"In this day and age, the key to promoting anything is social media. I posted on Facebook that I was looking for someone to help with my Twitter strategy and Tony was mentioned twice. He was very helpful before we even had a consultation. After we'd met, I felt so much secure in my tweeting skills and I was armed with useful knowledge. Lucky for me, he recorded the meeting. Our biggest gain was getting comfortable with using different platforms to help us with the Twitter game. As a result, we got an additional 300 followers our first week. It was such an amazing experience that we now enjoy using Twitter!"
-Cameron Barnett, Actor + Producer
Resume pride: check.
Devising your online strategy with Tony Howell: priceless!"
-Mary Jo McConnell, Actress + Entrepreneur
"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
"I chose Tony because he understands my background and the unique requirements of a creative business. He's on the pulse of the important social media/marketing trends and offers accessible, honest and entertaining assistance!"
-Lindsay Rider, Actress + Producer
"I’ve been friended and/or followed by some people I would work with in a heartbeat, which makes me feel like I’m already part of the community I’m seeking to join! I’ve learned to think of my brand as my identity, or vice versa, rather than a costume/package I take on and off."
-Richard Wayne, Actor
"When Tony reminded me to "keep it simple,” I feel like I got my real life back! Creating a clear message for my social media audience is key and way more effective. Doing this has helped me get off my computer/smart phone and get on with enjoying my personal, private life!"
-Gabrielle Ruiz, Actress
"I wasn't sure how to separate my acting marketing from my coaching to make them both work efficiently. Tony’s knowledge of creating an online empire has proved incredibly helpful and inspiring. He has helped me organize and make sense of so much social media overload. I finally feel like my online empire can be built in an organized and authentic way."
-Bret Shuford, Actor + Coach
"I think it's important to know as much about the technical side of design as it is the creative. I learned about the importance of how we present ourselves online as creative professionals."
-Frank La Mendola, Handbag Designer + Consultant
"I didn't learn one thing. I learned 1,000 things! I guess my biggest takeaway from my session was you have to provide value whether people donate or not to your campaign. The mentality is not to ASK, but to SHARE."
-Jeanette Bonner, Producer + Actor
"For years I worked as a Producer on Broadway shows that obviously utilized social media—but I never engaged for my personal use and expression. Get Creative was fantastic in helping me sweep through my own Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram so that I became very well versed in each of these platforms. I learned that once I was completely fluent in the language and use of various social media platforms—it was really effortless to keep up!"
-Fran Kirmser, Producer + Consultant
"I would never have gotten goin' without the vision of Tony Howell. I learned to simplify social media—how to listen and engage, release my fears, opt-in and truly find my voice."
-Di Ana Pisarri, Life Stylist, Writer, Speaker + Coach
"Thank you! You’re actually the first person to discuss actor marketing, networking and social media that I felt was truly helpful. And the fact you’re a theatre person first and foremost cemented it for me personally!"
-Trisha Miller, Actor + Voiceover Artist
"I can recommend Tony with total confidence. He is an extremely talented artist—intuitive, thoughtful, present and risk taking. His knowledge and excitement for social media has enabled our show to move to the next level. He is organized and concise in his presentation. Tony is also creative in his ideas for using social media in a world where a tweet can make a difference. Tony Howell would be a great addition to any team."
-Tricia Brouk, Director, Writer + Performer
"Tony is the kind of person you want to have on your team and establish an ongoing work relationship with. He is warm, generous and tremendously resourceful. Brainstorming with him is a wonderfully energizing and empowering experience. Rather than focusing on only one online medium, he provides strategies that tie various online platforms together to enhance their overall reach, and genuinely represent who you are and what you are doing."
-Ruth Priscilla Kirstein, Science, Entertainment + Athletics Professional
"Tony Howell is one of the hardest working individuals I have ever met. Because he's IN the world of musical theatre, he knows what's best for personal promotion and marketing. He's developed his own experiences into expertise to share with others. Very valuable."
-Claire Buffie, Photographer
"Tony has a brilliantly conceived and well articulated approach to using social media. The care and meticulousness with which he prepared his analysis and custom recommendations for me, and the thorough and informative consultation that accompanied them, laid out for me a plan of action that will undoubtedly benefit my career. I can honestly say I don’t know of a service quite like Get Creative and I would recommend it to any professional seeking to enhance his or her web presence and create a dynamic and successful profile."
-James Beaman, Actor + Coach
"After taking one of the Get Creative seminars, I knew I needed a little more personalized training—because my social media platforms were all over the place. Meeting one-on-one was fun and informative. I learned more in two hours than I could have fumbling around for hours on my own!"
-JJ Ignotz, Photographer + Boxer
