15. Understanding the electronic age – what websites you need to utilize

Unfortunately for the many old-school headshot reproduction businesses in Los Angeles, the entertainment industry is becoming more and more green every day.  Meaning casting entities are less likely to ask for hard-copy submissions, and more aware of the ability to use computers for communication regarding project submissions (not to mention it being much cheaper for the actor).  So you now need to upload your headshot, resume, and reels (if applicable) online.  Which websites should you sign up for?  Should you have your own personal acting website?  Which free media websites should you take advantage of?  Are certain websites recommended for getting certain types of acting jobs?  How much is an appropriate amount to spend?
