All of us working in the entertainment business know how important it is to have a web presence in order to develop and maintain our careers. Having a professional website used to be a plus, now it’s practically required. While many actors use their social media profiles or ‘free’ industry-sponsored websites, is this really enough?
In this fast-paced presentation we’ll explore the differences between marketing yourself on a ‘free’ industry-hosted website and having your own personal, branded website where the focus is on you and not the 100+ other performers who have their headshot and credits posted on the same site. We’ll also discuss how you can take control of your own career—you don’t have to wait by the phone for your agent to call.
