One of the single most important things you'll ever do as a professional digital artist is to create your demo reel. After all, if you can't land a job you can't put your mad skills to work! Business cards and resumes are all well and good but prospective employers want to actually see what you can do. Galleries are great for this, but they lack the impact of a well constructed demo real. They also can't show nearly as much information in a limited time or present your work in an entertaining manner that really grabs the viewer.
