SAAS – Meeting Notes & TASKS 4/16/12

Oh, SAAS – How I love thee.

* Joyful Reminders *
+ Free meditation classes at John Rosenfeld Studios once a month
+ Be sure to email actorsalon if you have to miss a Salon

Reaching out to your community for opinions
+ Do your best to keep the control in your own hands. It’s wonderful if someone forwards your inquiry to someone they know [“you never know who does your friend’s hair”], and that person takes action because they think you’re awesome. For example, “She’s great! My agent/manager would totally want to meet her!”
–> At this point, reach out for a referral. You really don’t want someone forwarding your email inquiry and speaking on your behalf.
–> You only want a meeting at this point.
–> “Thank you for the referral! I’m going to drop by their office next Wednesday. Will you contact them [phone or email] before then to give them the heads-up that I’ll be stopping by?”

Sign on the Dotted Line Calendar
+ Reaching out to every manager/agent candidate twice a week
+ Touches can include one-sheet, email, phone call, fax, postcard, drop-off (of any of these), pre-game letter, audition on tape
+ Aggressive/Passive approach or Passive/Aggressive approach

A/P (Aggressive/Passive) Approach
+ Week 1 – Call every office on your list – Find out how to get known by them/set up a meeting (answers will be email, mail, or referral)
+ Week 2 – Follow their instructions
+ Week 3 – Follow their instructions AND Do the OPPOSITE (if they said email, then drop off; if they said mail, then email)
+ The rest of the calendar is yours to create
* You can’t get it wrong!*

+ Actors Key, Actors Creative Workshop and Talent To Go have or are all starting to do multi-week workshops

+ Graphic design resource – –> Can name your price for what you want designed
+ WordPress – Yes, they host websites (not just blogs) –>
