“having the right visual representation is vital to success. Within a few seconds a client will decide whether they will continue to read over your profile information and review your social platforms.
1. The importance of the right photos
Just like you, your future client is busy and they want to quickly be able to know if you are the right fit for their brand or business. This is why having the right visual representation is vital to success. Within a few seconds they will access whether they will continue to read over your profile information and review your social platforms.
Quick tip: If you have video footage or a range of experience in your chosen field it is wise to have as much of this content on your profile to show the client what you are capable of!
2. Choosing Photos
Choose a range of professional images that show a range of angles, remember a clean headshot and full body shot is vital for a model and for influencers. Think about the type of brands you would like to work for and research the content they are producing to give you an idea of the style. Rather than uploading images that you think are nice, think about how you can sell yourself more commercially. If you have done any commercial jobs it always good to put these on your profile.
Quick Tip: Collaborate with artists on the platform to create new content for your profiles, to keep your profile fresh!
3. How to write a great profile
You want to capture the clients’ attention quickly so mention brands, campaigns or projects you have worked on, having this information at the top is a great way to stand out.
Next step is to add your level of experience in your chosen industry, and if you specialise in any particular area make sure you mention that too. Clients like to know that they can rely on you to deliver to their expectations.
Now the fun part, add in what you are passionate about and any skills you have.
Quick Tip: Put your ‘agent’ hat on and sell yourself!
