We got such an amazing response last week where we cleared the air on a lot of questions regarding actor websites. Today we’re continuing the online presence training and explaining one of the BEST resources an actor can use: IMDbPro!
This is one of my favorite sites. Not only is IMDb one of the most often searched databases in the entertainment industry, with IMDbPro, you get access to a complete index of information, including representation, contact information, photos, and more regarding other actors and industry decision-makers. It can be great when you need to find out the cast and rep of the lead actors on set… but what if I told you that YOU can use this amazing resource to help others find you!
You definitely will want the full scoop on this one.
In the video I explain the five easy steps to optimize your IMDb page with IMDbPro! But before you begin, you have to complete step one, which is, you have to be subscribed to IMDbPro! It ends up being about $150 for the year if you pay in full, but SAG-AFTRA members can check their local discounts for a code and get a HUGE discount! (Seriously though, it’s TOTALLY worth it!)
You even can get a free 30-day free trial. If this is something you haven’t put much thought into, now’s your chance to try it out and make your IMDb page one you would love to show off!
Now it’s your turn! Time to post your IMDb page in the comments below! I’ll even start it off- check the comments below and be sure to add yours!
I know that you have lots of questions, and I want to make it easy for you to get them answered. Do you have a burning question that you want me to answer in Guru Tips For Actors? Email us your questions and we’ll address it in a future #GuruTips episode!
Let’s see those IMDb’s!
