This is a question that we get all the time: I’m an actor, do I need a website? Let me tell you the answer:

Yes!

You must have a professional-looking site if you want to be taken seriously. Having a website will make your life, and the life of everyone you work with easier. Over at Bite-Size Business For Actors, a blog I highly recommend, the author talks about some of the scenerios that make having a website so critical.

Having a website is one of the most important promotional tools an actor can have, second only to a good headshot. A website allows you to provide interested parties with a more full look at your body of work, your personality, and the way you run your business. And it allows them to do it in their own time, at their pace and leisure, which is vitally important in the larger, more competitive markets. The easier you can make it for a CD/agent to get to know you, the better chance you have of making an impact with them.

I can’t agree more.¬†Unfortunately, having a website, and keeping it¬†maintained, is hard work. That’s why services like Actors Webmaster exist, to make that process simpler.

One of the great things about the internet is that it has leveled the playing field when it comes to competing with big name actors. Everyone knows that you only get one shot at making a good first impression. With a well-designed and up to date site, you can make a huge impact when looking for work.
