Contact talent agents but no calls! Why not?

I contacted talent agents but none called me! Why not?

How many times have I heard this one?

“I sent out my headshots and resume to five agents. It’s been two months now and still haven’t heard anything yet! What should I do?”

HERE’S MY ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION:

Stuffing envelopes with pictures and a resume is easy. The most important thing you should do in that situation is this.

“Start thinking long-term about your acting career instead of short-term.” Stop being in such a hurry!
Change your mentality and do the right things, which is, by the way, not sending out mailings to five agents and hoping to get called. That’s a short-term, low-probability-of-success thing to do.

It’s a waste of money and time for you and the person you mailed to. And besides, it doesn’t do wonders for your motivation and self-esteem.s

What you need to do lies in the answers to the following questions:

• What are you trying to achieve by sending out those mailings? No I mean what’s your goal?
• What is your type?
• Is your package “lined up?” Are all of its components speaking the same language?
• Do you know what the average response rate is for unsolicited mailings and how to beat the odds?
• Did you follow up with those mailings and do you know one of the best ways to follow up to increase your chances of getting called by the person you mailed to?

Besides the questions I listed above, there are so many other questions that new actors need to be able to answer and can’t, which is a big part of the reason why many of them aren’t getting anywhere.

In the Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course, we not only answer all those questions and many, many more, but I actually take you personally through them step-by-step and show you on video exactly each and every step you need to take to make sure your mailings and your online marketing efforts are a success.

That’s just one of the many reasons I tell potential students that if you follow my advice, the things you learn in this course with me and the other industry professionals you’ll find there, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t already be acting during the course, which means within just a few months!

The last question I ask you now is, “Do you think you will be acting in just a few months, if you keep sending mailings out like you are doing now?”

If not and you want to increase your chances for success and beat that ticking clock, (time’s a wastin’!) I’m here.
