Love it or hate it social media for actors is part of the entertainment business in a very big way now.

Producers, filmmakers, studios have all used billboards, posters, commercials, ads, and all sorts of other tactics to get attention on their projects. You can’t blame them, right? All the money, time, resources, and people’s lives invested in the effort to create something deserves to have its time in the sun to win you over by asking for a little of your attention.
Instagram is no different. In fact, you can read about how actors are using it RIGHT NOW to grow their followings by thousands AND building an audience that loves who they are and what they do by using Actor Influencer.
Should Actors Social Media Followers Effect Casting? Considering that all creators are invested in getting attention on their projects, it would then follow suit that they would be looking at how the people they attach to those projects use these free attention tools themselves. Again, you can feel however you want about casting directors and producers looking at your number of Instagram followers when they consider you for a role, but with all things being equal when you have 3 actors up for a role (same great talent, same great look, same great resume, same solid work ethic) but one clearly takes their social media presence seriously and has built a following because of it…well, you can see how it would be an easy decision.
The good news is you have the same access as everyone else. This dynamic platform is already in your hands, you no doubt use it, and you have the ability to leverage what it does well to bring the right kind of attention to your acting career. The challenge though is connecting with the right kind of audience who enjoys who you are and what you do.

Hear How Actor Influencer Works In This Clip.
Actor Influencer has packages starting as low as $94/month and to grow your account by 10K for 3 months it would only cost you $327, plus you get you $20/month discount by using the ActorCEO code. WHAT! That’s an unheard of deal in this marketplace and Rick knows it, but he’s committed to keeping prices massively competitive because he knows how much good leveraging this platform does for actors.
Let’s walk this idea out a little more:
You pay $327 for 3 months ($109/month)
+ You grow your followers by 4,000!
You book a job that pays you even $500
(they noticed your followers and saw it as an advantage)
You have COMPLETELY paid for the service!
If casting directors, producers, and studios are going to continue to use social media followers as a metric in the casting process, then Rick and Actor Influencer want to give actors a far better shot at competing against “social media influencers” who only book the role because they have a following.
You trained for this sh*t. You can act circles around some gal who does makeup tutorials. You’re way funnier than that schmuck who just does prank videos. So it’s time to take the social media side of your business as seriously as they do. Once you do, you will have massively upped your game in this industry and opened a whole new world not just because you have an audience, but because you’re GOOD and you have the audience to prove it.
