Strengthening Our Community

Posted by Richard "RB" Botto

The Stage 32 community is the most creative, selfless, and positive minded on the planet. No one can convince me otherwise.

From the very first day of testing when I reached out to 100 colleagues and asked them to not only test the site, but to invite 5 fellow creatives if they believed in our mission, to this very morning when I received an email from a new user who invited her entire contact book of over 1100 names to join Stage 32, the collaborative spirit that permeates this network is always on display.

Many of you have heard me say that the more creatives that join Stage 32, the stronger the network, and the stronger the network, the more opportunities. The correlation between our recent membership surge and the increasing number of success stories that have been rolling in lay bare that concept.

For those of you who have taken the time to pay it forward by inviting your peers to our network, thank you. For those who haven’t, we’d love if you would help spread the word.

To that end, whether you'd like to send a Stage 32 invite to one creative or a thousand, we’ve made the process by which to do so easier than ever.  (Info below!)

So…Have a writing group? Attending an acting class? Working on a film or play with other creatives? Have a social media following? Send some invites!

My love and thanks to you all. Have a creative day.



Making our community stronger is as simple as 1 - 2 - 3!

1) Start by clicking on Invite from the top site navigation bar:



2) This will bring you to our new Invite page (we hope you love it!):

New Stage 32 Invite System


3) From there, you can add contacts in two ways. 

First, you can manually populate your friends' and colleagues' email addresses on the left:

Manually populate your friends.


Or, second, you can automatically import your contacts from Gmail, Facebook, LinkedIn, Hotmail, Outlook, Yahoo, AOL and even your Mac Address Book:

Share via Gmail


Once you select the creative colleagues you would like to invite, you will be able to see if they are already on Stage 32 and add them to your network with a single click.

NOTE: you can also use this page to see which of your colleagues are already here.

It's that simple!

Once again, thank you for paying it forward!
