It’s Time to Stop Wondering How To Brand Yourself as an Actor
Create An Actor Brand You Love
Do you sometimes wonder if there’s anything that really does set you apart from other actors? Is it often stressful to tell someone about yourself as an actor? Ever get frustrated or confused trying to figure out your branding?
If so, then I know exactly where you’re coming from.
Nothing is more depressing than working hard and taking classes for years to become a really strong actor so you can be ready when you get “out there,” only to realize that to get out there, you now have to learn a whole new set of skills for marketing, typecasting, branding, pitching, networking…. just to get the chance to apply the craft you been working on so hard for years.
Even though you’ve made great strides in your craft and worked so hard to have the confidence to know you can do a great job in a role, you now face the frustration of the business side, headshots, and figuring out your type.
And to complicate matters, everyone seems to tell you different things when you try to get guidance and input on what to do, what type you are, and how to brand yourself… or not worry about branding yourself. If you’re like most actors who have put time and effort into becoming a professional actor, then you’ve heard all of these things.
Many times, you just end up feeling confused, depressed, and like you’ve wasted your time because you’re trying to figure out everything on your own about marketing and branding and nothing you do seems to get you to that next level where you can relax and be confident about it.
Wouldn’t it be nice to learn how to brand yourself so you can relax, do it, and just quit worrying about it?
Until now the only ways to really try to brand yourself were to put own ideas together with what everyone else said, mix it up and hope for the best or to find some an expensive team of a PR firm, stylist, web designer, photographer, and branding expert who can oversee the whole thing to make sure you have a coherent message and presentation.
The big problem with these extreme approaches is that if you just do it on your own without guiding principles, you’re never confident if you’re taking the right approach. But if you hire a team of experts to help you, you either have to keep paying them or your brand becomes stagnant and you’re stuck with what they created for you at point in time.
The fact is, neither of these solutions equip you with the knowledge and mental tools you need for to build a strong brand for yourself that can evolve and develop as you do and give you the confidence that you need to really express the brand you create.
That’s why today, I’m thrilled to be able to share with you my new video training program Authentic Branding For Actors: The Inner Journey to Standing Out in Hollywood with Confidence, Charm, and Ease.

This is just a taste of what people are already saying about Authentic Branding For Actors:
“This is a much needed course. Many actors are confused and held back by understanding their type and how to use it.’
“I can’t wait to apply what I’m learning!”
“I didn’t know that branding was supposed to start on the inside. I thought it was really just about your look.”
So, by now you’re probably curious as to how much the Authentic Branding For Actors is going to be.
And that’s a fair question given that in the past the only way to develop a professional brand for yourself was to hire a team of experts to help you with all the different things that go into branding and spend thousands of dollars to have them create a consistent branding look for you.
However, the reason I created the online video course of Authentic Branding for Actors is to make this career-critical information available to any actor who wants to be able to really identify and own their brand on their own terms and be able to fulfill it and live into it over time. Not just as a one-shot thing where someone comes in and does an awesome website for you or you get great headshots, but so your branding becomes intuitive for you, you fully understand it, and you simply have it guide you going forward.
