Inspiring WordPress Themes for Actors – Many Listed

What better way to display and promote your acting career than through a website.  In fact, with a website, you can promote your acting career on several levels including:

  • To prospective hiring persons (studios, directors, producers);
  • To your fans (build up your fan-base with your website – see below for tips on doing this);
  • To potential agencies to represent you.

If you’ve been searching even a little around the internet for ways to create a website, you no doubt have discovered many ways to build a website, even for actors.  Generally speaking, you can hire someone to do it or do it yourself.  This article offers an inexpensive solution for creating a media-rich and interactive website using WordPress themes that I believe are excellent for actors.

Which type of WordPress themes are good for actors?

Choosing the right WordPress theme boils down to the style and the functionality you want.  In my view, magazine and portfolio WordPress themes are perfect for actors because it has built-in functions to display images and in some cases video.

Otherwise, all WordPress themes are easy to add interactive components so you can converse with fans and build up your fan-base.

How to build up your fan-base with a website

The key is two-fold:

  1. Creating a content and media-rich website; and
  2. Offering several ways for your fans to interact with you.

1.  Creating a content and media-rich website

WordPress is an ideal platform for publishing content and media.  Types of content include:

  • Blog posts
  • Your CV / filmography
  • Videos of your work (or snippets) – be careful not to violate copyrights.
  • Podcasts
  • List awards, accolades, links to interviews – include as much as you can mentions of you and your work.
  • Fan forum
  • Blog commenting
  • Links to your social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube channel, etc.)
  • Q & A portals
  • Any other content that revolves around you and/or the work you’ve done.

2.  Presenting several ways for your fans to interact with you

Actor websites are the perfect platform to share yourself with your fans.

Give, give, and give.  Get personal and be professional.  Your fans are interested in you and your work.

An actor website is unique from other types of businesses because you can weave in personal posts and articles with content featuring your professional work.  It’s a great mix that actor fan bases love.

A NOTE of Caution

If you implement interactive elements to your actor website, be sure to participate.  Your fans won’t be impressed if you offer several methods for them to engage with you only to discover you never reply, post, and/or engage.

If engaging isn’t your thing, then create more of a CV or brochure site focusing on your work.
