How Do I Push My Agent to Get Me More Auditions?

How do I push my agent to get me more auditions?

First of all you need to make sure that YOU are creating on your career.

People who are part of your team only work as hard as they are inspired.

Part of that inspiration comes from you doing your job and booking jobs. It means you making sure you are taking a class that celebrates you as an artist. It means really being well prepared on an audition. This needs to be a priority for you, it means not staying up late partying or goofing around when you should be working on your sides. It means being dedicated to your craft.

Once you have done your part, you can then do things like stopping by your agents office with a small token, like a coffee or a homemade muffin or a card or even better a new headshot, post card or resume addition, a new website or a note saying your site has new features or a new reel etc. It is important to keep yourself real to your agent and by real I mean there and in their minds.
