QUESTION from a young aspiring actor who is contemplating investing in The Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course: What’s the difference between your two websites actingcareerstartup.com and actingcareerquickstart.com?
Here is the difference between actingcareerquickstart and actingcareerstartup
actingcareerstartup.com is completely free, with almost 500 pages of information
that you have to sift through and figure out. It’s often used by people/actors
who know what precise information they want, they go get it and leave. Some use the site to study the acting business and to learn what they need to do to get their acting careers started. All the information is there, you just have to look around and find it.
actingcareerquickstart.com is the home-study course in which I walk
students through the entire process of starting an acting career from a-z.
Show them how to do everything and explain why it’s important, plus there
are the coaching calls, the personalized headshot and marketing eval with
questions on how to get themselves noticed in the industry. The ultimate
goal for those who go through the program is to be up and operational as
an actor within the six months. If one follows all the steps and is
committed, it is definitely possible, just like these guys did:
Here’s what usually happens:
My experience tells me that most people who go for the free informational
website even after a year of looking around that site, are no better off
than they are when they start. That’s the reason I created the home-study
course. People who follow that program have what I call, an unfair
advantage over the vast majority of starry-eyed people who think that all
they have to do is find someone to introduce them to an agent, get
discovered or just start looking for auditions on the internet. Those
folks don’t get anywhere.
The people I feel really bad for
There are also the ones who are naive and think that all they have to do is be diligent and take lots of acting classes to become really good actors, study hard and then miraculously something good will happen. (I really feel bad for those people, because they really don’t understand and they are living in a world that doesn’t exist.) They also don’t get very far, because they fail to realize that what’s going to make the difference is learning the business of acting, starting to understand why they call it SHOW business and knowing how to take control of your own destiny to ensure that not only they get an agent or two to represent them and send them out on auditions REGULARLY, because those agents believe in them, but that they also learn how to build relationships in the industry with casting directors and other industry professionals that will call them directly for auditions. An actor needs to know how to be able to get auditions for themselves and how to work in tandem with his/her agent. The vast majority of actors simply don’t know how to do those things, which is one of the reasons why most aspiring actors never make it.
You can’t please everybody!
What I always say is that McDonalds isn’t for everybody. Not everyone likes to eat there, but they have to eat somewhere if they want to keep on living. Not everyone likes Nike shoes, but they have to buy their shoes from some company that makes shoes, because they need shoes. Not everyone wants an IPhone made by Apple, but just about everyone needs a phone and so they have to buy a phone from some other company other than Apple. The point is that you can’t please everyone. They are all extremely successful companies with excellent, high-quality and reputable products, but not everybody wants them.
Where to get this information all in one place?
You might or might not want to take my Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course, which is also a good product, complete with all the information you need to start your acting career and created by someone who has already done what you are trying to do. And it works. BUT, just like McDonalds, Nike and Apple, maybe you don’t like my style, maybe you feel that for some reason this isn’t for you, but if you really want to START A SUCCESSFUL ACTING CAREER then you will NEED to get all this information that I provide from someone else in the acting industry. The thing is, that you will be hard-pressed to find someone who will give it all to you in a simple and easy-to-understand way and who actually shows you what you need to do, gives it to you on video, mp3, coaching calls, email responses to all your questions and all in one spot.
2 Questions for you in closing
Now you have two questions to answer for yourself.
1. How badly do you really want to start an acting career or get your failing acting career off the ground?
2. Now that you’ve read this email, what are you going to do?
I hope to have answered your question C, about the difference between actingcareerquickstart and actingcareerstartup. Know that if you need me, I’m here to help.
