I recently created a new website for LA based actress, Melissa Kellner
. Melissa needed a website to showcase her ever-expanding portfolio. Being that my background is in theater
, I knew exactly what she needed. I love working with actors, artists and musicians. I’m passionate about using my online marketing skills to help my fellow artists!
Melissa wanted a website that was easy to update, so I suggested we create a custom-designed site on WordPress. Using this platform helped to keep the cost down while giving her the capability to update her website by herself. We created a website that showcased her headshot portfolio
, her resumes
, her reels
and She was thrilled with the results!
“Like some other people who wrote reviews, I too shopped around a bit, but no one compared to the immediate connection I had with Andrea. She REALLY listened to what I wanted, and had ideas and suggestions that I never even thought of, but that were totally in the correct theme/ line of thinking I was going for. She REALLY cares how successful your website is – not just whether you “like” it or not, but if it is going to get you the best business possible. She makes everything super easy and user friendly. I am NOT a tech-orientated person, but she was able to do EXACTLY what I wanted… AND we live 3,000 miles away from each other. Now THAT’S talent!”
Websites for Actors
The New York Website Designer specializes in websites for actors. Think of your website as your online portfolio, or a giant business card. Backstage.com did an article on websites for actors and they noted, “Thanks to the Internet, a headshot and résumé don’t have to be an actor’s sole calling card anymore. A website can help you raise your visibility and spotlight your talent. And just as a quality headshot and résumé can brand you an astute pro, so can a top-notch website. But the opposite is also true: A confusing or inferior site can frustrate casting directors.”
So make sure you hire someone that knows the industry! Luckily for you, Andrea Bertola has two loves in her life: website design AND theater. With Andrea you get a top-notch website designer that has also been on BOTH sides of the casting table.
