I did what you said and I got two interviews with two agents! Thank you! Sorry but can I ask you how do I prepare to go meet the agent? What do I have to do?

The Importance Of Fans
If you havent figured it out yet, if you want to be a successful actor, you need three things: talent, business skills and fans! Thats right. Fans! The more fans you have, the more likely you are to get cast. Why? Because producers know that if they cast you, your fans will pay to come see you at the movies or in the theatre or they will tune in to watch you on television.
In this day and age, theres no excuse for an actor not to have some sort of web presence. The magnitude of your presence might depend on how much money you have. But just maybe! No matter if you have a lot of money or a little, you can build yourself a site.
Here below is a list of free websites for actors. I included Myspace and Youtube, just in case someone hasnt already discovered them. But there are so many others as well. In fact there are more than the ones listed here, but I just want you to get the message, that you should do something to get yourself on the web. And do it now! Have a look at these links and start to figure out how you will set up your presence and more importantly, start to create your image and your voice. Start to create what you want to project. Have fun!
The following sites in this free websites directory offer the possibility to create a web presence by either creating a blog or free space to post photos, your own content, videos, any of them or all of them. They also offer the possibility to create a list of people, friends, connections and generally just network. The great thing about it all is that the more interesting your space, content, video is, the more people will share it with others. That means that you become even more well-known, you have created presence and you have created your fan club! From there it can only grow. And all these sites are free! But just remember, they are free, so whereas you can make a pretty good presence for yourself and get yourself a lot of recognition, they are free, so you cant expect a whole lot in terms of image and quality.
So there you have it. If you really dont have much money or if you like the ideas you see here below, go for it! Theres no excuse for not doing anything! So get started!
If you want more information about the first site in this free websites directory, have a look at this link about what ActorsAccess.com has to offer or NYCastings.com has a free website service as well.
If you are looking to create a presence for yourself in the industry and make yourself known in a big way, you might find one of these books particularly helpful.
Whether you use a free websites directory or you pay for your actor website, just make sure you have something online. It can make the difference.

I want to say you changed my life. I want to be an actress so bad, but i began losing motivation when I couldn't figure out what to do. And then I found you! Thanks to you, I'm taking my first acting classes next month! Yippee!

Just wanted to thank you for bringing me in to [audition for the video], meet you and chat this Saturday. I was really excited to hear about your working on actingcareerstartup.com and even took a look at it today - it's awesome! You are very well-spoken, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and it shows through the work that you do! I hope our paths in the industry will cross again and really enjoyed meeting you. Thanks, again and best wishes with your very important work!
