Whether you are an established actor or fresh in the industry, marketing yourself is one of the best ways of promoting your trade. Thing is, even when you are signed up by an agency, there are moments you will be a freelancer especially when there are no active projects going on.
Social media platforms and other online forums have made marketing talent possible for actors which was not the case a few years back. To market yourself as an actor, you actually don’t need a huge budget, especially in these financially difficult times.
However, simple as it may sound, marketing requires consistency and a great execution plan. Below are a few tips that can help you achieve the exposure you deserve.
Have Your Own Website
If your dream is to join the league of other famous actors and actresses, you might want to have a site dedicated to marketing your brand. A simple website where you can also showcase some of your projects is good enough.
However, even as you try to keep things simple when creating a website, make sure it works for and not against you. Prioritise on usability and design. There are so many sites such as Bitstarz where you can get inspiration from when developing one. Yours might not have elaborate features but it should be easy to navigate.
Upload Your Profile on Industry Platforms
Industry platforms are probably the only avenues through which you will get noticed by a potential agency. Create your profile and make sure it speaks for who you are and what you are looking for. If need be, get help from a professional when developing your profile.
Always remember that in the acting business, the key thing is creating great partnerships as you progress through your career. Keep your eyes on the goal and remember that no human is limited.
