How to Make Money as an Actor


What do most actors do to make extra money? Bartend, wait tables, promotional gigs, donate organs? Sure, you can make extra cash by doing all of those things, but why not make it easier on yourself? The life of an actor can sometimes be stressful between auditions, rejections, agent meetings, rehearsals and updating marketing materials. The key is to work smarter, not harder.

So what is an easier way to make extra cash?

Booking Commercials!

Sure, it may sound nearly impossible, but in all actuality, it is easier than you may think. With the help from a Commercial Agent, you can start auditioning for Commercials that will pay you enough to stop waiting those tables at night.

If you have the commercial training and are ready to start booking commercials, attend our Commercial Agent Showcase at TVI NYC to get started off on the right foot.
