As a professional actor and founder of Actor-Webs, I’m often asked if an actor really needs a website. Since we live in such an online, on-the-go world, my answer is a resounding yes!
I mean, think about it. What do you do when you hear about a new restaurant? My guess is you google it. If you can’t find its website, chances are high that you get frustrated, move on, and forget that you were ever interested in that restaurant.
The same goes for actors. Potential employers and colleagues WILL google you, so it makes good business sense to have a professional website that shows up when they search and represents you with the content you want them to see, along with an easy way to get in contact.
