The world we live in today is very much online.
It’s no surprise then that the entertainment industry has followed suit.
From YouTube sensations scoring hosting gigs, to new media contracts at SAG-AFTRA for web series, to casting directors checking how many Twitter followers you have, it can be very daunting if you’re not tech savvy.
So over the next month, I’ll be sharing an interview series with Amy Russ from Actor-Webs to help you navigate some #WebPresence must-haves. Amy is an actor, web designer and expert at Backstage.com, and in this week’s video interview, she answers one of the most common questions from actors…
Do you really need a website?
It’s time to view your acting career like a business, and make sure casting directors, producers and peers can find you online.
Social media is a great tool for connecting with fans and friends, but you still want to direct people into your own website and mailing list. A website keeps you in control of your #WebPresence.
I’ll be hosting a Facebook Live this Thursday, July 13 at 6PM EDT / 3PM PDT where I’ll be discussing actionable steps in getting started with your website as well as moments where my website has led to more work. So don’t miss it!
