So your profile says it’s only 67% complete.. or worse, even less! What do you do now?
- Upload a profile picture
This is your star shot. Make sure it’s your best photo, so if you’re a model/actor/influencer/presenter/ make it a headshot. If you’re a dancer make sure it shows off your dancing skills. For photographers/videographers/hairstylists/makeup artists make sure it showcases your BEST work. Remember this is the first thing clients see when going through talent profiles and applications so make sure it stands out!
- Complete basic details
These are your details that you submit upon application such as date of birth, email, phone number, full name.
- Choose at least 1 profession
Examples of this are whether you are a model, actor, photographer etc. Make sure you choose the top 3 professions that relate to you.
- Pop in your attributes (if applicable)
This is crucial for a lot of modelling and acting jobs where clients need to know your measurements. These attributes can also include hair colour, eye colour, body type and so on. In order to be booked on both acting and modelling jobs you will need to ensure all your measurements and attributes are up to date.
- Connect social
Having your social accounts connected with a minimum of 5000 subscribers/followers will be super beneficial for when clients are reviewing your application. If you are an influencer it will let clients view the type of content you produce.
- Upload a minimum of 5 photos
If you have less than 5 photos it will hinder your ability to get your profile approved as well as book jobs as versatility is a key attribute that clients look for when booking talent.
- Upload at least 1 audio or video
Whatever profession you have chosen, either an audio or video file on your profile will benefit you in booking jobs. Actors are required to have at least one showreel uploaded for clients to view. If you have ever appeared in any TV campaigns, shows, movies, or online content this is where you would put the clips!
- Connect your bank account
The is probably the most important step of all, as this is what allows you to be paid from all the amazing jobs you will be booked on! You can update these details at anytime but they will need to be added prior to you completing your first job.
- Write a bio with a minimum of 150 words
We can’t express just how important it is to have an appealing bio. Along with your profile picture, your bio is the section that is viewed most by clients so make sure it is eye catching and describes you and your experience in this industry as succinctly as possible.
- Have at least 8 reviews
Everyone loves a good review, and clients love reading good reviews. Statistically speaking, clients are 80% more likely to book a talent that has a reviews over a talent that doesn’t. Reviews allow people to get a gage on what you’re like to work with and how you perform so make sure you uphold an outstanding level of professionalism from the second you’re booked to the second the review is left.
- Complete your compcard
Compcards are typically used by clients when putting forward their chosen talent for selection. This will have your 4 best photos as well as your attributes all in one place! You have total control over what images appear on your comp card so make sure you set this up with your best 4 photos and complete it as soon as your profile has been approved!
- Completed 10+ Paid Jobs
Clients want to know that you’re experienced! Along with reviews, the amount of jobs you’ve completed allows clients to see that you’ve successfully booked and then worked on similar jobs.
Don’t forget, you can still apply for jobs if your profile isn’t at 100%. This is just to be used as a guideline to ensure you have everything clients might need when reviewing talent!
