Use social media. Utilize Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc to their maximum potential. While blind submissions and cold calls are impersonal shots in the dark, Facebook and Twitter offer you the opportunity to engage with them in a way that could lead to a relationship and may result in a meeting. That said, be VERY careful when approaching agents on social media. If you come at them with any level of obsession, desperation, or hackery, you've ended that relationship before it started.

Take every opportunity to act in plays, web series, student films, etc that will get your work seen by as many people as possible. Act wherever you can, and if you're talented, the word will get out. Good agents and managers go to plays. They watch videos recommended to them. No matter how jaded the business makes them, every agent's dream is to be the first to discover that wildly talented actor who no one would see and guide them to super stardom. You may be his diamond in the rough. So, go act.

Ask for a reference. If you have friends, classmates, and colleagues with agents or who know managers, politely ask them to pass your picture, resume, and reel along to their reps. If you don't have friends with agents, do the work of engaging in a community of represented actors (in a class, etc), and then politely asking them to send along your stuff. You'll need a recommendation to meet with an agent or manager, and a reference from one of their clients will be helpful.
