You’re running a business if you’re an actor who wants to be paid for your labor. You are, in reality, a company. As a result, it’s critical that you act like one and show oneself properly. What is the big picture that is required? Websites.
Many people are either too afraid to start a website or will abandon the concept entirely. Others are attempting to establish a quick career and will overcrowd their page with too much content, which can overwhelm everyone who visits it. With these simple website construction suggestions for actors and entertainers, you can avoid both extremes.
Maintain a straightforward approach. You don’t require 20 pages of data. You can even have a one-page / cover-page resume that includes your best headshot and a brief bio that discusses your education, enthusiasm, work experience, other skills, and what you’re searching for. Include a link to your online portfolio, IMDb, and any relevant websites (not too many though). Then include a contact button or link so that people can simply contact you. WordPress, Squarespace, Weebly, and other website builders make this simple and affordable.
Choose a Domain Name and Hosting Company
Choose a name and a host. If at all feasible, personalize your site by using your name, such as www.youractingname.com or anything similar. These make it easy to find you without causing any confusion. Furthermore, without a host, no personalized website can function. Godaddy, a tiny orange, and host gator are some of the best hosts. We have no affiliation with any of them, but we are aware that they provide excellent hosting.
Personal Branding is a term used to describe a person Be aware of your personal brand. No, don’t become so “branded” that you get typecast. Define your strengths, however, and make sure they’re visible on your page. Are you aggressive and self-assured while maintaining a sense of class? Are you gentle, determined, and kind? Allow these characteristics to shine through in your design, visuals, and color scheme.
Don’t be afraid or limit yourself by avoiding this stage because you are gifted and have chosen performance as a vocation. You’re in a company that wants to thrive, so put in the effort.
