entertainment industry coach question 617: Does an actor need a business card?
Yes! YEs!! YES!!!
I just held a raffle for my ebook at ActorFest. All the actors had to do, was put their business card in my green box and they had a chance of advancing their career by winning my ebook 101 Obstacles to Making It In the Entertainment Industry and How To Overcome Them.
Yet, only 20 actors/actresses had business cards. Three of them were disqualified from the raffle because they didn't have an email address on their card. You want to give people every opportunity to reach you. Being a seasoned career coach, I was prepared for this, so I brought index cards for them to write down their information.
If you want to be a professional actor, be professional. Professionals have business cards with their contact information.
