There are many different aspects to Actor Marketing, and there is no hard and fast rule as to how you should do it, so try and be intuitive and discover what is going to work best for you.
This aspect an actor’s career comes up time and time again because it is so very important. Through your training you will be honing what it is that you are actually marketing your talent and your skill. There is no cutting corners on this one! Discover what it is that you have a special talent for and be able to demonstrate it. Great comedic timing? Shakespeare? Stage Combat? You can discover all this through taking class, and in doing so will pick up more strengths to add to your repertoire. Training is a key aspect and first step in marketing for actors.

This is an essential tool for any actor. It should be an 8×10 professional color headshot as it’s your key to get an audition. Your headshot should reflect the roles you’re most castable as.
A resume gives you credibility and shows a casting director why they should hire you. If should be no longer than one page and attached to the back of your headshot. Include your contact information and set the focus of your resume to the part you’re auditioning for.
A demo reel can highlight your acting skills, confidence in front of the camera, and personality. It should be one to two minutes long. Look at it like a commercial that reflects your skills. It can have several mini-clips of your past work or a good story that displays your abilities.
HaBusiness cards are a low-cost marketing and networking tool that can prove to be an invaluable investment if you, the actor, has them on you at all times.
COMPOSITE CARD (COMP CARD)
If you want to work in commercial print, this is essential. Put four body shots on one side and a great headshot on the reverse with all your stats: height, weight, hair color, eye color, dress/suit size, shoe size, glove size, hat size. This tool is more about your body/image than about your acting ability.
Your bio should be four paragraphs listing your major credits, training, recent roles, and personal interests. You don’t need this on a daily basis nor do you send it out often. You need to have one on hand for when you do get cast so it is ready to be put in a Playbill. Make sure it is in your press kit.
A website can act as your portfolio. You can display your photos, resume, showreels, news, reviews, and social media accounts.
SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS
Most actors overlook the power of social media. Social media can be a great networking tool if used correctly. Follow industry leaders, casting directors, talent agents, and media outlets. Post interesting information about the industry, photos, and clips about your latest projects, and interact with your followers.
A postcard is a good way to say hello, to promote a new show, or even to follow up after an audition. Be creative, include photos and production stills.
You can use one-sheets to promote your self, and they are very easy to create. It’s your magazine cover or movie poster.
