3 Ways Actors Can Build Their Personal Brand Online

How you get perceived as an actor online is important when it comes to branding yourself.  In today’s entertainment industry, having a great representation of who you are as an actor online should be mandatory.

Casting directors, agents, film and theatre directors and other industry professionals look talent up online to learn more about who you are and what accomplishments you have achieved if they are interested in you.  If you don’t have that good of an online presence, it can lessen your chances of new opportunities.

Search & Audit Your Online Presence

Google search yourself and see what comes up.  If there are things you are not too pleased with, take the proper steps to alter, remove or change what you don’t like.  If nothing comes up about you, than that should also be a strong sign that you need to take action and start building your online presence.

You can also set up Google alerts for your name which can offer you insight and feedback about your personal brand.

Setting Up Your Actor’s Website

An actor website is one of the best things you can do to help define yourself to the public.  I’ve talked about some low cost steps you can take in order to help you set up your own actor website.  You will rank higher in Google searches and your website just needs to cover the essentials such as your headshot, resume, reel, bio information and any additional links you would like to share about you and your work.

Adding A Blog Section To Your Website

You don’t have to only be a writer to blog.  There are other ways to create blog posts that can build your actor brand such as photos, videos and graphics.  It’s a good way to create content about your acting career and sharing the latest things you’ve done as an actor so people can keep in touch with what you have going on.  Sharing your acting activity is a smart way to connect with more people in the field.
