So what exactly is Boomopolis.tv?
Quite simply, we offer an easy way for producers and talent to find each other. In our case, talent means small business owners, startups and professionals interested in being on camera, on radio or in print.
Producers from various entities are constantly browsing our site to cast professionals. We cast for: Game Shows, Reality Shows, News, Documentaries, Talk Shows, Commercials, Print and Radio.
What do you mean by Experts?
Experts are also known as commentators or on air experts. They often give feedback on various radio or talk show segments, and even commercials. Some examples of famous experts would be: Dr. Drew (medical), Nate Berkus (design), James Carville (politicial), Gloria Allred (legal). Having said that, most experts are not house hold names and don’t have their own shows. They simply provide short commentary or appear as one time guests on existing shows. Still, they can get extra publicity for their business (and often paid gigs).
Some examples include a doctor giving a testimonial on a commercial, a lawyer on Extra discussing her take on the latest celebrity divorce, a technology journalist giving his weekly take on an NPR radio program, or even a chef cooking a great Christmas dish for a daytime talk show. The possibilities are endless, so if you have expertise in anything at all, why not list yourself as an expert.
Is there a cost to get listed?
Listings are free, however we do have paid services to get our users increased exposure. A list of all of our services can be found here.
How do I edit or cancel my listing?
Simply go to your dashboard and then hit the pencil button to edit or the red X for delete.
I want to make sure some of the information in my listing is not public. Is this possible?
Yes, when you fill out the information for the listing, there’s a tool tip which tells you which information gets displayed. But in a nutshell, your last name, email and phone number and street address are never displayed. As for other fields, you have the option of displaying them or not.
I’m a producer. Can I contact one of the experts directly without posting a media opportunity?
Absolutely. You just need to register which takes about 30 seconds.
I’m a producer. How soon will my media opportunity go out? When will I start receiving applications?
It goes up on the site immediately, and you’ll start receiving applications within 24 hours. It also gets emailed once a week to our database of talent (this could mean anywhere from 24 hours to 6 days after you submit). If you need something emailed within 24 hours, you just need to purchase the Featured package and then request expedited service by calling us at 818-538-4011.
I’m a producer. I searched your site, and I posted a media opportunity, but I still can’t find the specialized talent I’m looking for. Can you help?
Yes. We do customized searches. It’s called our concierge service. For more information, please call us at 818-538-4011.
If my listing is already posted, how do I make it featured?
Simply click on the link at the bottom of our website, and it should be done within 24 hours.
How do I opt in/out of emails?
By default, producers get our monthly email, and on-camera talent receive a weekly email with media opportunities. You can opt out of either ofthese when you receive the first email.
What are endorsements, and how do I get them?
Endorsements show producers that other people want to see you on camera. When you’re on your profile page, simply click on the SHARE icons for Facebook, Twitter, etc. This will post your profile on your social media networks , and you can ask people to endorse you. Anyone can endorse you – just once. They don’t need to be logged in.
What if I want to submit to a media opportunity anonymously?
By default, it shows that you applied for a show within your profile and on the show’s profile. If you’d rather submit anonymously, you’ll need to sign in under a different account. Please email email@example.com, and we’ll email you the instructions. If you accidentally already applied, then we need to remove it manually, and it can take up to 48 hours.
What are my chances of getting called by a show?
The best you can do is create a full profile and even a video. If it really stands out, the producers will be coming to you. Of course, we encourage you to submit for any show that you feel you’re appropriate for.
For additional questions, feel free to contact us.
How do I turn off comments on my page – or delete a comment?
If you’d like to turn off the comments on your page, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we should have it done within 48 hours.
