Here is how the group for performers on LinkedIn works. Get the word out... Post an audition or a job opening, build your audience, share information, promote your work in performing arts and your talent skills. "In this day and age of competitive social networking you need all the exposure you can get to find your audience. The LinkedIn performers group potentially puts you in front of industry professionals so the larger the group the more everyone benefits from the discussion or post" says DeGaetano, group creator.
"Also invited to join is everyone connect to the entertainment industry. This applies to Directors, Stage Managers, Production Managers, Design, Technicians, Box Office, Marketing, Public Relations, Music Directors, Choreographers, and other theatrical professions."
