What is My Modeling Boot Camp?
My name is Ashleighe and I have been modeling for over 25 years. I have been asked time and time again for advice and knowledge about being in this industry. I wanted to compile a group of specialists and companies that I thought would represent the best. People who can give knowledge in a fluid industry as well as some know how advice to follow.
Most of us have been working in our business for years. We have given advice, time, and insight. This is another avenue for the business that we are in to flourish. I am happy to show you this synopsis of Boot camp.
Model is either referred or signs up on the website. Model pays a fee for a 6, 9, or 12 month boot camp. This is based on whether they are maybe working, going to school, or just need some time to make sure that they have that financial investment that they can put towards their learning. They meet with me one on one and I figure out their action plan. Models will let me know what they want to have as their goals. If they want to travel, be published, be in galleries…etc. I wanted to put together a panel of specialists to give them the knowledge and information to achieve their goals, looks, and to have success.
What would my business be doing with My Modeling Boot Camp?
I am looking for Small businesses that can give and help new models in the business. This can get them organized, make them beautiful, and learn about your specific company. There are many direct sales businesses I have never heard of and would love to share them with the industry. Small businesses this is a great new way to promote your business to others who you have not been able to network with. I am having the following on my team: Photographers, Studios, Hair Stylists, Makeup Artists, Wardrobe Stylists, Personal fitness, Safety/chaperone. Small Businesses: Consignment stores, tanning salons, beauty salons, home based businesses (Tupperware, Avon, Mary Kay, Custom jewelry) This is networking within this community as well as out.
****Please make sure we are able to use your company logos and images. ***
Who are you marketing to?
I am marketing mainly of course to models but, I am also networking to the other Specialists within this industry. There are several cross overs that we can do to network and make some more connections than we had before. We will be teaming up with some of the national modeling portfolio sites as well. I have been allowed to submit a blog on one of the sites for approval once we are fully up and running. You will be able to get in touch with a demographic that you have not been able to expose yourself to before.
Who will you be listing on your site and how will this affect my demographic?
Only one rep from each line will be represented. I will only have one Avon rep, one Tupperware rep, and if you are a store you will be the only one in a fifteen mile radius. Your demographic will not matter as most companies are able to drop ship or ship their products nationwide. I have local and national companies that will be listed.
Why should a small business advertise?
I love referring businesses and items that I like to use. This way you can market to more consumers that would have that demographic that you would be looking for. This will be regional and national so it can help in networking outside of your normal circles. You will also be able to network with other businesses and piggy back of leads.
What are the fees for ad space for Small Businesses?
Small business ads are 30.00 per year. If you would like a full page it is 45.00 per year. All vendor ads and listings must be paid before going live. No ad will be live until payment is made. Please refer to the checklist. If you have more questions, please contact Model Boot Camp.
What is my fee paying for?
Your fee is paying for your ad to be on the Resources page as well as being part of the book. It will or can link to your page or your site. It is for the SEO work and networking that I will be putting in to make this a success. Your rates are your own so even one booking can eliminate your whole annual fee.
What is a guarantee that someone will buy my product or stop by my store?
Since we will be directing the models and other companies to your link and your business, the odds of them logging on and picking you off of a general company website is slim. We link directly to you. It is not a general search. This will increase your odds in getting someone to book with you. I am sorry but I am unable to guarantee sales as I wish I could. I will be getting the word out there with our site, tweets, and other marketing tactics. If you are in the Southeast , I will be making events where we promote your company.
Is my fee refundable?
Sorry but no. I am only selecting a few in the industry to have on my team and this is to mainly schedule your free time to make money. I am not getting any kickbacks from your sessions or consultations. You are able to be listed as inactive or only able to take assignments on certain days, months, etc…
What will be listed on my ad?
Your ad will be your small advertisement of your Company and a small tidbit of your personality.. I will be putting a small sentence on why you were selected to be on this team. Again this is a small business ad. It will list you logo, short description of your company and contact information.
Will I be the only rep for my company?
At the beginning I was hoping this would be the case but, for various companies I am adding one more rep per company. As we all know some people may not click and therefor I need a back up for this purpose. There might be two reps but they usually will be on opposite coasts.
Can I terminate my partnership with My Modeling Boot Camp?
Marketing is a gamble and yes I know that some people will have to wait and see what happens as times always are changing. We can remove you from the site and the lists as requested in writing. No fees can be refunded. At only $20.00 or so a year, it is a small investment that can be returned with one sale.
MMBC has the right to terminate its agreement if a vendor is found to be unprofessional or have unethical practices. The agreement signed notates this.
When does my contract start?
It starts on the 1st of the month that you sign up. If you add on another company the contract will be prorated back to your initial sign up date.
