Let’s be real. You don’t care about auditions.
Picture this scenario. I’m a high quality film producer, ready to go into production on my next feature film. You are a fan of my work, and one of your goals is to work with me. I’ve already secured financing for my film, and there happens to be a leading role that you were born to play.
I reach out to offer you the part.
What do you do?
Insist that I let you audition first?
Of course not!
The truth is, if you never had to audition again, I doubt you would miss the process. We would all love to be offered the role, no audition necessary.
And yet, so many actors spend their time, energy, and money chasing after the very thing they don’t want – more auditions.
Now don’t misunderstand me. I’m not saying you shouldn’t audition. When auditions opportunities comes your way for projects in alignment with your goals, by all means, audition your heart out. Auditions are part of the process of getting seen.
But they are not the only way to be seen. And this is exactly why I was inspired to create the Auditions to Offers program.
This program will help you stop focusing on what you don’t want (more auditions), and start building the foundation for what you dowant – booking more work on projects you are excited about.
What is Auditions to Offers?
This 4-part online video program will teach you how to stop focusing on auditions, and start focusing on the secret weapon to long-term career success…powerful relationships!
Think about it.
Many successful actors follow a similar strategy: They work with the same people over and over. They work on projects within a certain “wheelhouse” (that’s fancy producer-speak for genre, medium, style).
And they rarely, if ever, have to audition.
Because they are already known, liked and trusted by the people who can hire them.
Now, you may not be an A-lister (YET), but you can certainly adapt the same principals to your own marketing strategy.
And that means shifting your focus from auditions, to connecting with the people who can hire, write for, or collaborate with you.
Successful actors often work with a small group of people who hire them again and again. This program will teach you how to identify, build and maintain those relationships for your own career.
I’m not just talking about casting directors. Yes, it’s great to be well known by casting directors. But there are other valuable industry relationships to be had. Just as there are many other ways to be get seen than just landing yourself an audition.
Auditions to Offers will help you step outside of the conventional actor-path – agents, casting directors and auditions for any and everything, to zero in on strategic alliances with like-minded professionals that pay off for the rest of your career.
How it works
The program will be released in weekly online class modules. Each week’s class is filled with step-by-step training videos, done-for-you templates, resource lists, worksheets and bonus videos that will show you how to focus on the actions that get results.
This is not busy work. This is the art of relationship building.
You won’t just be learning what to do, but you’ll actually be taking action throughout the course. Because knowing what to do isn’t enough. You must take action (and keep going) to get results.
What’s in it for you
You will learn exactly how to build relationships with the people who can hire you. You’ll gain clarity on your specific acting goals, learn how to find the people you most want to connect with, exactly how to reach out and connect. What to say, when and how often.
In addition to that, this is a lifetime access program.
I’m an actor too, and I know how hectic life can be. From running around to auditions, to writing scripts, to juggling your side job and trying to have a personal life, I know the daily chaos of an actor’s life. That’s why you get lifetime access and ongoing support through this program.
Who is this program for?

What others say about working with Emily
“I have gotten more done in the last two months than…probably ever.” -Kelli Ambrose
“Everyone always tells you that the odds are against you, the statistics are ridiculous, there are SO many people trying to do the same thing you are – You have a better chance of winning the lottery than you do of making acting a career… Right, there are TONS of people you’re competing against, but it becomes less daunting when you realize that MOST of those people probably aren’t employing those necessary business and marketing strategies and doing so consistently. Once YOU do, you WILL see results, you WILL realize that pool of competition becomes much smaller and that THIS SH*T ACTUALLY WORKS!” -Nicole Vogt-Lowell
“My problem has often been that I don’t know what to do. Emily Grace gives actors who feel paralyzed a kind of road map to follow toward furthering their career. It helps empower the actor. When I have down time from projects that are already in motion, I don’t feel useless. I get to work on marketing myself in a focused, smart way. The facebook group has been a good, reliable home-base for the class. Plenty of personal attention from Emily; she is great at replying to questions. I’ve gotten more done in the last two months than I think I have ever gotten done in my career.” -Lucas Van Engen
“I feel more in charge of my career, and I feel like I have a better grip of the building blocks I need to establish the right relationships to get me in the right doors. The bonus content is great. The material is great. I’d probably say my favorite thing is that the material is ours to use forever. Emily Grace gave me the focus I needed to figure out where, how and why to take my career. Thanks, Emily. Like, a lot.” -Michael Scalzitti
“It sounds ridiculous, but I had no idea that you could just ask for things. I found Emily via Twitter, just like hers “Twitter Basics” video teaches you to build contacts through social media. It really works! If I didn’t just ask Emily for advice/knowledge/what she could offer me and my career, then I never would’ve found Emily and I would still be going to tons and tons of auditions that don’t do anything for my career. Emily Grace taught me how to find auditions and projects that focus on quality rather than quantity.” -Sarah Halford
“I was worried about whether it would be any different than the dozens of books I’ve read or what I’ve learned with my acting coach. It was worth every penny. It was more than I expected. Emily has organized tried and true information, incorporated social media which a lot of coaches don’t really grasp yet, and gave me the structure I needed. I’m a lot more confident when it comes to networking. Since taking her course I feel a little like a rock star. I feel like “I got this” when it comes to executing the plan, which was a sentiment that was previously lacking. With a plethora of information out there, Emily breaks it down into doable portions, so that we as the actors can actively take our careers into our own hands. No more throwing spaghetti at the wall! LOL. Thank you, Emily!” -Lisann Valentin
“I’ve been able to identify some huge gaps in my marketing. I work really, really hard at marketing, and this has helped me get very specific about both the targets and the content. So now I’m working hard and smart. I’ve got more ideas about how to approach people I might have never thought of approaching. I’m a big fan of actionable steps. When you get to the end of a module, it’s great to hear, “Here is a specific action you can take to put this into practice now.” That’s gold.”
“I have really seen my communication skills improve after taking Emily's course. I am able to be more specific about what I want – which is the key to furthering my career. I have already started to create more than ever before, and Emily helps me push my creativity level even further. I love the facebook group, the call ins, and the modules – they are all a great package and help me daily! I would recommend Emily's courses to anyone that is serious about wanting to discover themselves as an artist and propel further in “showbizzness.” I would like to say it has been awesome!!”
“Before working with Emily I used to hate social media – I thought it was the dumbest thing! But now that I understand it, I actually love it. Not only has it helped me create better relationships with people in the industry, but it has created more lively conversations with people in person as well. I have also been able to get my own press picked up, which has led to other interviews and the opportunity to spread the word about my producing projects as well.”
“Before working with Emily I had somewhat of a plan but I left a lot of it to chance. I felt that it was out of my control. She helped me get specific with my marketing and my career. Now I have a real game plan to reach my goals. I’m really glad I got to work with you and meet you and I can’t wait to see what lies ahead!”
“If anyone is considering working with this woman, don’t think, just DO! Not only did she provide me with a wealth of information and resources, but practical, focused, life changing stuff. Thank you, Mz. Grace My head is still buzzing with everything you shared with me. ”
“I got above and beyond what I expected working with Emily on how to market myself. She helped me see some great resources that were right in front of me that I had been completely ignoring. Not only that, she made marketing simple, fun and creative. ”
“After taking Emily's course, I have more focus, more determination and fire under me! The online program is stellar. So is the Q&A and ability to reach Emily via the facebook group. I have learned marketing strategies that were vague in my mind at best – it was like having a kick in the butt that I needed to get.”
“Instead of being all over the place and not knowing if I should be jumping on every casting that comes in, I’m more focused on what I need to be doing and feeling more confident! Less overwhelmed! The thing I liked best was how accessible Emily was during and even after BYOB. The FB page has been a great addition. Just being able to connect with others who are in a similar place, career wise and who are all moving forward with a similar action plan. It’s great to be able to network and bounce ideas back and forth. There is so much to waste time on and so much wrong information. I have a background in PR & know the importance, just didn’t know the right approach for this industry. Now, I can eliminate so much garbage and push through to what I need to be doing to advance my career!
-Robynn Lin Fredericks
"Emily is helping with that “spaghetti syndrome” I’ve had as well as given me powerful organizational tools to stay on track. I no longer feel like I have to conquer the world…like in the next 10 minutes, and I don’t feel overwhelmed. I know what I need to do next. I would definitely recommend Emily's courses. It will help keep the career momentum going. When the ball gets dropped, whether be for a family emergency or other reasons, I feel like I fail. So continuing the learning curve as well as applying it to the things I’m working on is extremely helpful. The information contained in her courses also helps demystify building an internet presence for advertising as well as providing great examples of what works and what is not working.”
