Act Like It's Your Business free pdf Many actors treat their profession as a purely artistic endeavor, resistant to the fact that there is more to making a living than simply showing up on stage or in front of a camera. By refusing to seriously acknowledge that self-promotion is vital to their livelihoods, many performers can get quickly discouraged by the vicious circle of audition and rejection. However, with a little foresight and planning, any actor can learn how he or she is their own best advocate for a career in the business of show. In Act Like It's Your Business: Branding and Marketing Strategies for Actors, Jonathan Flom helps actors and others in the arts understand the power of branding. This guide walks the reader through the process of creating a personal brand for his or her small business and then marketing that brand and broadcasting it through every step of the process-from choosing clothing, arranging headshots, and designing resumes to selecting a repertoire, building a website, obtaining business cards, and networking. The book also offers advice on such real-world issues as goal-setting, finances, contracts, and day jobs, as well as provides insight and guidance on how to approach agents, auditions, and casting directors. A book of empowerment meant to shift the balance of control to the actor himself, Act Like It's Your Business is aimed at professional performers as well as students who are getting ready to transition from college to the "real world." Structured logically and step-by-step, this accessible guide will become the standard for nearly anyone hoping to build an enduring career in the performing arts.
