Want to Market Yourself, Actors?
It’s important to get yourself out there, my actor friends, to be in front of the right people so you can get auditions and, subsequently, the parts (and recognition) you deserve. Well, you definitely need to get good headshots, that goes without saying. But you can put your headshots on business cards and postcards and make them available to the people who need to see you.
So one thing I do is use Moo cards, which are really, really cute and really, really inexpensive. I just bought some mailing labels and stickers for my photography and video business and I love them. I’ve been using them for years because one of the things that’s really fun is the MiniCard (which is about the size of a stick of gum) where you can put your headshot and all kinds of other information. They have regular size business cards as well and I also have those. Very good quality and a fast turnaround. What’s cool, too, is that you can put one headshot on it or many. Or you can have a different headshot on every card. They’re not picky.
Moo has put together a guide for actors to marketing yourself with their products, of course. Now you don’t have to buy Moo but it might be worth your while just to read the ideas and see if any of them can work for you.
If you want to order anything, please use this link. I may actually get $7.50 for it! But that’s not important to me as I really believe in Moo products.
