Beginner’s Guide & 8 Quick Tips for Modeling Agency Websites
1. Browse through model sites and choose those that get the most exposure. Check Twitter and other social places to see what the buzz is.
There is nothing wrong with researching agency sites to check if they are real and proven to be effective. This is necessary to prevent getting scammed or exploited.
2. Profile – Post your profile on more than just one model agency web site to be able to maximize your exposure.
This will make the window to success wider and the possibility of getting chosen and hired more probable.
3. When creating your profile online, make sure you have provided contact details in every communication method possible. Put a phone number or an email address that a client can use to reach you.
4. Pictures -Post your modeling pictures and make them as versatile as possible.
Include photos of you in an outdoor and indoor setting, in abstract, and using different effects, facial expressions, and make-up methods.
This way, clients can to find you to be very workable in different settings and in various modeling projects such as commercial print modeling or maybe even promotional jobs.
5. Some websites have themes and contests. Join these to be able to get featured more often. If your name is out there, clients find it more difficult to ignore you.
If the talent management company requires you to enter a brief description of yourself, grab this opportunity. Make sure that you describe yourself as interestingly as you can.
6. Mind your grammar and spelling. Although you are applying as a model, it would be a big plus if you strike clients intellectually as well.
Avoid those terms used in text messages like R.U.O.K.?
7. While waiting for clients to take notice of your posts, take some local classes on modeling.
It is important to be aware and knowledgeable about the industry you are about to enter.
8. Be prepared financially. Most model sites only provide a place to showcase your photo portfolio online for clients to view.
If a client asks to see you at a casting call, you might have to shoulder your own expenses for a portfolio, travel, etc., unless you are backed up by your own sponsor.
Don’t Neglect the Local Model Agent
