It's no question that the internet has revolutionised the way performers are hired in the industry. The original casting methods started with ads in The Stage and posting casting breakdowns to agents, then forward to faxing the breakdowns. Internet made this much faster and more efficient - first with email, then the more advanced sites like Spotlight and CastingCallPro which manage and send out breakdowns. This is the part your agent handles - but everyone know's that it's not enough to sit back and leave it all to them.
To start - you need to be visible! The Spotlight Casting Directory has such facilities (though expensive) in book form and online - but only for those with Spotlight accounts. CastingCallPro's services are more attainable and more readily available for those searching. But both of these options line you up against hundreds of other performers - and the last thing you need is a casting director searching for you and finding 6 alternatives or better qualified performers.
Whether you're a twitter addict or a complete novice when it comes to the world of social networking, it's evident that business has been enthralled by the easy reach to customers/clients that facilities like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram affords companies; whether the target is customers or b2b clients.
