You have just signed a deal with a representative with The Brown Agency. You are excited to get started. Before you jump right in there are a few things you need to know. You may be a model, but you are in sales. Your job is to sell yourself successfully with The Brown Agency. Do you want to keep you as a long-term client? Do you want to build a successful relationship with your modeling representative?
Below you will find 4 tips on handling yourself in a professional manner with someone from The Brown Agency
1) Listen to what your representative is telling you. He or she has been doing this for a long time. They know what works and what does not. Sometimes those who are new to the business tend to think they know everything. This is mistake number one. They are not going to take you on when you feel you know everything there is to know.
Stay calm. Think of this person as your teacher. Your job is to become the student and take in what they tell you. The more you listen to what they are telling you, the more they will stay with you.
2) Say you do not book a specific job you wanted. Talk to the agency. Find out what you did wrong. Sometimes we keep making the same mistakes because we are afraid to find out what we are not doing. Your representative is going to do more for you when they feel you are taking the appropriate steps.
3) You need to offer something that no other model is offering. Any modeling agency will tell you this. This agency discovered you for a reason. Find out what it is. You may have blue eyes and brown hair. A million other girls have the same qualities. There is something about you that sets you apart from the others. Find out what value you have. Take the appropriate steps to capitalize on your value. Your representation will help guide you.
4) Be willing to go above and beyond. You may want to move into management one day. You may be working toward representing someone of your own one day. Work towards this goal every day.
“Dress for the job you want, not for the one you have”.
In an article on Market Wired, you are a model right now. Do the job you are hired for. You also need to learn as much as you can from those above you. Share your goals with the agency. Most agency reps will help you work towards your goals, as long as they know what they are.
Take in everything you see. When the right time and place comes, show your representative you are ready to take the next step.
