"Clear, engaging and inspiring - an invaluable godsend"

“My solo play, HOLD THESE TRUTHS (holdthesetruths.info), is currently being produced across the country, and I needed to update its website, but I kept procrastinating because the process seemed so intimidating. Tony’s course on creating a website – clear, engaging and inspiring -- was a godsend. Working my way step-by-step through the course, I was able to replace the old website with a new webpage in a matter of days, one I’m tremendously pleased with. I would enthusiastically recommend Tony’s courses to any artist needing help with this, or related efforts. I love that he is always available to help you through the process should you encounter any difficulty, and he is gracious and generous in sharing with you additional valuable tips and insights. Thank you Tony for making these invaluable courses available to our artistic community!”

"Completely transformed the way I was thinking about my online presence"

“My web presence was scattered and outdated. I had incorrect IMDb info and no website. After setting aside the time to do some careful and strategic thinking, then battling my own inertia around pooling information, I hired Tony Howell. He is a wizard! Tony’s professional, prompt, funny, and a great listener. He makes you feel like you are the only one in the world who has a website! Now, I now have ONE location for all my different modes of expression and teaching. I can direct people to my website and people can receive a much more comprehensive picture of who I am, the work I do, as well as the person I am. Thank you!!”

"Changing my life in noticeable ways from the very first lesson"

“When I first signed up for Tony’s online course, I had an idea for a new business, but lacked the necessary skills to fully realize how to form and market it. It was just this super fun idea that ended up getting some unexpected traction, and I realized I would have to update my mind and skillset completely in order to stay on a train that was flying out of the station. I was surprised and thrilled to learn that Tony’s teaching method offered immediate solutions that pin pointed exactly what I needed, right when I needed it! The course was changing my life in noticeable ways from the very first lesson! I watched, applied, watched and applied, absolutely loving his laser focused specifics. Within just a few months (and not even half-way through the whole course) my business idea became a clear game plan, I created and claimed it’s title name, formed it’s LLC, designed its brand, and launched it across all social media platforms—which got the attention of a funding producer who is now in the process of pitching it to networks in the US and Britain! And again, I'M NOT EVEN HALF WAY THROUGH THE WHOLE COURSE, and am psyched at everything I still have left to learn and apply! Tony’s course was the best thing I could have done to get my career on track (while twirling with anxiety and overwhelm). Thank you, Tony!”

"I booked my first co-star role on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt + produced my own short-film"

“Before I took Tony's Social Artist Training, I had a basic online presence with a website and social media platforms. I didn't have much knowledge as to how to bring myself to my website. I knew I liked pink, so my website was very pink, but I wouldn't call it an outstanding representation of myself. I wasn't sure if I'd have the time to progress through a weekly course. I realized that I needed to MAKE time to progress through a weekly course. I loved the weekly trainings, and then getting to attend the live Q&A with Tony and a guest each week to get a chance to ask questions that came up was extremely helpful. I felt like I got a lot of personalized attention which can be rare in a group setting. I remember in one of the courses, Tony talked about this comedian he worked with who had an amazing picture of her face smushed against a glass door, but she wasn't using it anywhere on her website which was more uniform in terms of material. He suggested that she put that picture front and center and I remember something clicking. Tony doesn’t just teach basic do's and don'ts, but he really works to help everyone capture their unique essence online and that's what I love most. With the help of my incredible sister, I took what Tony taught us and completely revamped my website. It matches the professional that I am and want to be, and is a great extension of me. Tony's advice to me when I first started the course, was to distill my goals down to one goal to focus on at first. Once you know your goal then you can define your audience. I'd been describing myself as a real-life Kimmy Schmidt meets Amy Adams in Enchanted, and it took me some time, but I booked my first co-star role on none other than Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. And I produced my own short-film as a princess in NYC that screened at a film festival. I am still much stronger with Instagram than Twitter, but I've learned how to use both to my advantage in terms of connecting with my audience and furthering relationships. They're pretty powerful tools once you learn how to use each one!”

"Outstanding way of educating, inspiring, and entertaining"

“I first discovered Tony’s work through Sierra Boggess’ website. I’ve never seen a better actor website, so I asked Tony to speak about website design fundamentals at my annual PromoteU conference. What he delivered was a business masterclass! Tony has an outstanding way of educating, inspiring and entertaining. My team came to me saying how many our attendees loved his talk and wanted him to come back again next year.  And the staff and myself all learned a few things too!  If you're looking for an expert on how to build your business and your brand online, Tony is your guy.

"Watching Tony's process and hearing the rationale was invaluable"

"The biggest value of this class is the final product.... a beautiful and functional website! However, watching Tony's design process and hearing the rationale behind each choice was invaluable. Now that I've had a website for a couple of years, I appreciate what a valuable tool it is. It's a great streamlined way for people to get to know my work and get in touch. For example, a casting director who sees my work onstage can find my website url in my bio and contact me through the site for auditions, which has happened! Plus in my training, I learned all the tools I would need to keep my site up to date. So I feel empowered to add and adjust whenever I feel it's necessary. I have a better understanding of how to compile information about my career in one place, make myself more visible online, and how to use the web for networking."

"Feel like I have a team behind me... performing next month at a prestigious gallery in Milan"

“Tony dragged me kicking and screaming into digital marketing about 18 months ago. Now that he's expanded his company with like-minded and compassionate people, I really feel like I have a team behind me anytime I need them. While I have a long way to go, I recognize that I can use these tools to get closer and closer to the work I am so eager and ready to do. In fact, while vacationing last year I met an artist. I started following her Instagram and commenting on her postings. We developed a friendship over Instagram and now she has invited me to perform next month at a prestigious gallery in Milan at the opening of an exhibition featuring her work and six other artists!”

He's constantly passing along guidance and is such an encouraging person. Tony's the type of person that motivates you to be better! He's encouraged me to start my own coaching client business and claim my strengths and knowledge. I've also gained the confidence to attack the Commercial/TV/Film world and have found a new passion.”

"Helped me focus... great feedback on my brand, photo, website, and new business cards"

"I needed to refresh and modernize all the business communication skills I had in the industry to propel the work that I do into money making ventures. I wanted to learn more and faster about how to reach the people who can make these things happen, as I'm beginning to understand how much I don't know and how much there is to learn about how to sell myself! Presence helps me focus. I need to review several times. I am beginning to see the light. I've received great feedback on my brand photo, website, and new business cards. Do it! Utilize the community, too."

"Helps you realize your presence... gave me a renewed excitement for putting myself out there"

“I felt lost and stuck trying to re-start my acting on-camera. I was great on headshots and so-so on other images. I struggle with the photo session itself. My wardrobe is always hit or miss (which is why I always bring in several selections), then smiling and getting the commercial ‘money shots.’ My eyes scrunch up when I smile and I'm also self conscious. Tony gave me a renewed excitement for putting myself out there: bringing me rather than what I think others want me to be. I love the image tips you have in here and the 'permissions.'  I love the playlist, helpful worksheets, that there’s a weekly call-in! Really good stuff. Presence helps you realize your presence.”

"I'm really grateful for Tony's information and guidance... program is well-made and fun"

“I'm always looking to learn new things about perfecting my marketing and branding. I've enjoyed everything Tony has done thus far, so I'm always excited to hear what advice he has to give. I knew my photos needed an update, but that's been more of a budget issue than a knowledge issue. Honestly, the most frustrating thing is lack of budget, but the second most frustrating thing is knowing your personal branding and direction you want the photos to go in. This is where PRESENCE comes in handy. I'm feeling more motivated to update my photos. I've set up a plan, put it in writing, and I'll start saving up some funds to execute the vision. I haven't launched everything just yet, but I have cleaned up my existing content. I'm also thinking that I'll abandon the idea of managing too many social media account for every aspect of my brand - it's exhausting to keep up! I'd say, if you don't know much about, marketing and branding yourself, or need help taking the right types of photos, then go for it! I'm really grateful for Tony's information and guidance. The program is well-made and fun.”

"I finally took the action I was putting off, and I feel a million times better"

I had no clue what to do. I only had headshots. I didn't know how to brand myself or what to do in my photoshoot. I didn't feel confident in myself. I felt clueless. However, I loved Tony's free workshop. Because I thought he would be too expensive to work one-on-one with, I signed up. Even though I'm working with him one-on-one now too, I think this is super helpful on the side. I have tangible homework to do to know how to present myself, how to pick a photographer, how to be the CEO of me, and how to plan out photos! Someone said they thought my "apartment" website was my "dream home" and they couldn't wait to see the finished result. I also ended up redecorating my place—because Tony said to do a photoshoot in there. I finally took the action I was putting off, and I feel a million times better in my home! Work with Tony, now. I love him. He'll change how you see yourself, and that will effect how other's see you. Do it!

"Always brilliant, always ahead of the curve... so easy to work with"

"Musical Theatre Educators' Alliance was fortunate enough to have Tony present for us at our annual conference in San Diego in 2016. Everyone was so impressed and enamored with his knowledge and his presentation that we commissioned him to help us with a major organizational rebrand in 2017 and then we invited him to speak as a special guest at our conference in 2019 at NYU. I also personally contracted him to do a Skype lecture for my students when I was Head of Musical Theatre at Shenandoah Conservatory. Tony is always brilliant. He is always ahead of the curve. He is so easy to work with. And he knows the business as well as anyone. I cannot recommend him highly enough, for personal work or for a company--Tony can do it all!"

"Nothing less than a miracle that’s been waiting to happen for us all for a long, long time""

“The Tony Howell Method is nothing less than a miracle that’s been waiting to happen for us all for a long, long time.  As a husband/father/teacher/performer/director/choreographer/Tony nominated Broadway veteran, the most miraculous thing of all is that Tony discovered this brilliant method by being open and by challenging himself to go deep into his own artist consciousness. The Tony Howell Method happened because he began asking himself very specific questions relating to who he is and why he wants to do this work. Let Tony take you down your very own yellow brick road so that your ‘somewhere over the rainbow’ becomes a real place where you can create your very own method of artistry.”

"300 followers to 10K and media coverage"

“Tony is awesome. He is the person who first gave me guidance on social media (I'm now almost at 10K followers from about 300.) 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! I returned for the full brand audit—which is worth its weight in gold. Tony is super smart and very up on today's branding and digital platforms. There's a lot of info to take in, but take it step-by-step and you will see great results! Highly recommend.”

"Exceptional and healing and encouraging... incredibly empowering"

“Besides my writers residence online portfolio and published work via search, my web presence was nonexistent. I wasn’t sure how I wanted to come across, and not sure if I was ready. Still, I needed to just do it. It was the right time, in a deeper place. Tony's energy is exceptional and healing and encouraging. Sincerely. It was so fabulous to meet in NYC when we were in final stages, to sit down and feel our collective spirit. He anticipates needs so well that I never felt I was lost for help or alone ... not one moment. His tutorials are exceptional. He cares and you can feel it! Having a website with all of my skills on it was incredibly empowering and allowed me to connect with people. I would say this year has been the biggest year because, while the first edition was excellent, I was not positioned in a place in the world and personally to really see the power of it. Now I have formed a deeper relationship with the whole site and it is alive to me. I update content and send newsletters and get feedback from people who are so impressed that I do so many things. I’m almost a year in Switzerland, and the impression people get from my site is important to networking here and building my entire life. That Swiss people are impressed is a huge compliment!!! Tony and his team are so great and supportive and I am continually humbled by how much they still keep in touch with and care about me as a client. I would recommend them over and over! I’d start with an audit to at least begin to hone your public facing image online. The whole process is ongoing, but we all have to start or at least be aware of the consequences of avoiding it.”

"Web presence grew exponentially from total ignorance to social media popularity"

“Before working with Tony, my web presence was abysmal. His full-service instruction and clear expertise filled me with confidence. He simplifies everything and makes it seem easy. My online presence has since grown exponentially from total ignorance to social media popularity. Of course, that carries a ripple effect. If my name was Goldilocks, I’d have to say ‘Everything is just right!’”

"Countless performance and teaching opportunities, including a show on Broadway!"

“My web presence was nonexistent, out of date, and not user-friendly. #Sad. Having zero knowledge with site building/computers, I found great ease and joy with meeting Tony. He’s a wonderful person to work with. He delivers exactly what the client wishes and beyond—with personal and unique touches. 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. Since working together, I’ve had countless performance and teaching opportunities, including a show on Broadway!"
