New Benefit Alert for One Dance UK Choreographer’s Directory Members!

18 Jun 2018

New Benefit Alert for One Dance UK Choreographer’s Directory Members!

You may recall that when Spotlight still published hard copies of their artist listings our choreographer members were included free of charge in the back of Spotlight Dancers in a full-page format – the last edition was released in October 2015.

Now that Spotlight is totally digital they have offered us a new way to promote our members on Contacts

Part of the Spotlight website, Contacts is free to use, publicly available, google optimised and currently gets around 90,000-page views a month and growing. Spotlight have very kindly offered to publish our choreographer members on this site with an enhanced profile listing. This is normally at an additional cost but for One Dance UK’s Choreographers Directory Members, there is no fee involved.

This will offer fantastic additional exposure, providing you with 2 public profiles (Spotlight Contacts and One Dance UK’s Choreographers Directory) to promote yourself or your company.  As a current Choreographer’s Directory member with us, you will be provided with a private edit link from Spotlight, which will be how you add/manage your information any time you wish.

Spotlight has adapted the Contacts database as far as they can so that much of the information you have published on the One Dance UK’s Directory can be replicated. Some aspects won’t be available, but there is a field for you to add the link to your ODUK profile, so visitors can click through to see further information on your ODUK profile such as your showreel. Just add the link as an additional website when entering contact details.

The profile has a clean and fresh look – Here is a mock-up of what an enhanced listing could look like for you!

You will be able to replicate the following fields from your ODUK profile:

  • Name & About (Short Bio)
  • Highlight your experience level
  • Publish your work contexts and movement styles
  • Contact Information (Telephone, Mobile, Email, Website)
  • Showcase your professional credits (this will not be exactly the same as our site but similar)
  • Social Media Links

The following are what you must add to your profile:

  • Link to your One Dance UK profile for additional fields i.e. Showreel
  • Show your professional membership(s) – One Dance UK
  • Add a gallery of production photos to make your profile personal

 

Want this benefit? Here is what you need to do:

Step 1 create a free basic listing

On the Spotlight Contacts website, create a free basic listing here – the category to select: ‘Drama & Dance > Choreographers. The listing must contain an email address, so Spotlight can get in touch with you. Make sure you select your ODUK membership status in the ‘professional membership’ area so that Spotlight can check your membership with us. (You must have the ODUK Choreographer Directory Add On for this benefit)

Step 2 Edit your enhanced listing

Once your One Dance UK membership has been verified Spotlight will switch the listing to an enhanced listing and add in our One Dance UK Members logo which will appear on your profile. They will then be in contact with you with further instructions on how to finalise your profile. (You must keep the One Dance UK Members logo as your image on your enhanced profile to show you are a member of ours to be eligible for this benefit)

It’s that simple!

If you have any questions regarding your Spotlight profile please email contacts@spotlight.com, if you have a question regarding your One Dance UK Membership please contact info@onedanceuk.org
