Network every day!
You can network through many different avenues. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and SnapChat to name a few. Also at networking events, red carpet events, or film festivals.
After you've made those connections, use GetResponse.com to keep track of following up with these people. Follow up when you have something interesting to invite them to, a new tidbit about your career, or maybe just a funny quote.
Keep your connections alive and working for you.
Its good to follow up with someone before two weeks has passed. If you follow up and there is no response, try following up in another two weeks.
Try not to let those connections die, they can be useful in the future.
