There are millions of styling combinations that can be done for your actor website. A big chunk of it is an ability of changing fonts for your headings and paragraphs. Simply update the font for your website by selecting your options from the dropdown menu. Your preview sample will be automatically populated, so that you can see the changes instantly instead of going back and forth between your control panel and your actor website. Once your selection is made, you are done, simply reload your website to see the affected text.

Probably the most important part of your actor website is an ability for your visitors to contact you. Some might note down your phone number and give you a call, others prefer direct email contact, yet others might contact your agent instead, but more than often, people will prefer to send you a quick note through the contact form. When they do, your control panel inbox will be updated and you will receive numerous notifications. Watch this video to see how to spot new messages coming from your actor website.
