Why pro wrestlers need (Social Media)

Hello everybody this is Mongol Santino

I just want to go over a little bit about social media, why do you want social media as a professional wrestler? For me the number one reason why I like social media to reach out to bookers, promoters easier than before. You know today you just add a couple of photos add a link to your match a little resume and the promoter knows who you are once he opens up that message.

Social Media - Mongol Santino

Back in the day you would have to get your photo, VHS or DVD and mail it over to them and hopefully they open it up, reason number to I like social media is you can let your fans know your upcoming match, autograph signing also will help you promote your merchandise and that’s very important you know specially if you have no money for a website. Social media is a great tool to brand yourself and market yourself I highly recommend it and for me as a promoter, bookers, directors if you don’t have social media you are kind of out of sight out of mind and you don’t want that you always want to be in the promoters faces letting them know that your available or not available also with the fans too, you know you want to have a good fan base it will really help you out in the world of professional wrestling. If you like this video please go ahead and sign up below on the link and I would really appreciated and until next time, see you later.

Branding in Pro Wrestling

Hello everybody,

this is Mongol Santino and I just wanted to talk a little about branding and marketing. It’s really important especially when you don’t have a big company backing you. A very common question I get is “How do I brand myself as a professional wrestler?” If you are a small business or an independent contractor then you MUST learn how to brand yourself. Here are couple of first steps I would take:

Branding - Marketing - Mongol Santino

  • Create a logo
  • Create a catch phrase or slogan.

Marketing Mindset in Pro Wrestling

Hey Guys,

Mongol Santino here and I just want to talk a little about having a good mindset. It’s very important to have a positive mindset before starting anything. In professional wrestling, marketing, and in life, you WILL encounter many bumps and bruises along the way. But I’m here to tell you that the key is to have a positive mindset.

Mindset - Mongol Santino

The truth is you will get a lot of “No’s” before you are told “Yes”. You will get put down and hear a lot of negativity. But it’s okay as long as you have a positive mindset. You can overcome anything especially in professional wrestling. Wrestling fans, co-workers, promoters, and directors can all be cruel. But you just got to take it all in stride and come back stronger. Fix what you have to work on, stay focused and never give up. The rest will be history. How bad do you want it? How much work are you willing to put into it? It is all about creating new habits and getting rid of the bad ones. It takes time to do this. Professional wrestling just like marketing is not easy. But having a positive mindset and a no die attitude will make you succeed. No one controls your mind but only you.

Hostgator is the best hosting service I like to use. They have great customer service, and I have never had any problems. I get everything done here, it’s a one stop shop for Domain names and Hosting. When you buy the domain name, it already comes with security. It protects where you live and your private info. I have used other domain services like GoDaddy and Bluehost but I found HostGator the easiest to use. You can check if your domain name is available and start your website journey.

Bill Bill Anderson - Mongol SantinoBig Bill Anderson is considered the “Trainer of Champions”. He has been in the Pro Wrestling  business for over 40 years. He has wrestled all around the world with countless wrestling legends. He’s been involved in many different wrestling shows, from small veteran halls to the big grand stadiums.

I first met Big Bill on the Socal Indy wrestling scene. I walked up to him and shook his hand just to pay my respect. He`s contributed so much to the wrestling world.
