No laughing matter: Launching comedians’ online presence
The way things are going these days, if your business doesn’t have a website, people tend to trust you a bit less – or at least consider you slightly less professional. Even if you get up on stage and make jokes for a living.
Towards the end of last year, Pomegranite was approached by two Cape Town-based comedians – Kagiso “KG” Mokgadi and Angel Campey (yes really, Angel) – who needed websites. Both had impressive Twitter followings, but they needed a platform where people could find out more about them and book them for events.
He was chuffed with the result and had lovely things to say about us. Flattery – it will get you everywhere.
Angel – yes, her name really is Angel – is a relatively new face on the South African comedy scene and she has already started to make her mark. Given the name Angel at birth, she didn’t have the career luxury of becoming a doctor or lawyer and her options were limited to being a stripper or stand-up comedian. After a few test runs in front of her own mirror she chose comedy as it made the neighbours boo less violently.
Angel already had a blog, but she needed a professional website that allowed people to contact her and book her for what she does best: MC events. Comedian. Comedic Writer. Tweeter. Blogger. Opinionater and Converting Oxygen to Carbon Dioxide (Free. Special).
We had a lot of fun working with these guys and it’s always great when clients love the end product. Just one example of some of the awesome people and projects that Pomegranite has brought into our lives.
