Tips for Success with Your Acting Website

Now that we’ve looked at many excellent examples, let’s cover some tips to keep in mind when you’re creating your own site.

1. Keep It Simple

Most of the actor websites showcase above use a clean, simple design. Photos (like an actor headshot) and videos should create visual appeal, so it’s best if the other design elements stay out of the way to avoid clutter and distraction.

This is one of the reasons why we recommend Squarespace. Most of their templates are clean and simple.

2. Include Reels

Demo reels from commercials, theater performances, TV shows, or films are great for showcasing your work, especially for casting directors and agents. Your website visitors shouldn’t have to search very hard for samples of your work.

Include Your Resume

Many actors’ websites include a full resume. It’s a good idea to provide a downloadable and printer-friendly version of the resume and one that will be formatted to look the best on your site.

Write a Compelling Bio

The biography is an important part of your site because it helps to frame how readers will see you, and you can start to make a personal connection. Provide more than just a brief one-paragraph bio that doesn’t really help you to connect with readers.

Show Off Your Accolades

If you’ve earned press or media coverage, showcase positive reviews or mentions. You can also include endorsements or testimonials from reviewers or anyone in the industry.

Your website is a marketing tool with the job of selling you and your capabilities. Don’t be afraid to showcase what you’ve achieved or the good things others have said about you and your work.

Make It Easy to Reach You

If a casting director wants to get in touch with you or your representation, make sure it is easy for them to do. You can include an email address, contact form, or phone number for yourself or an agent. The easier people can reach you, the more likely you will generate leads through your site.

Link to Your Social Profiles

Fans may prefer to connect with you via social networks, so be sure to link to your social profiles. These icons/links could be in your site’s header, footer, or sidebar, or on the contact page.

Final Thoughts on Actor Websites

If you’re an aspiring actor looking to land more roles, having a quality website will help with responding to casting calls and landing more auditions. Thankfully, it’s not difficult to create a professional-looking website, even if you have no technical skills.

We recommend using a website template from Squarespace to create your acting website. And now that you’ve seen the showcase of outstanding actor websites in this article, you should have plenty of inspiration to create your own site.
