We want you to kick this week off right so today, it’s time for encouragement and education. If are happy with your level of success as an actor or model, stop reading. If not, then we hope you’ll find value in spending the next few minutes reading, contemplating and acting on this post!
First up, Encouragement.
You are probably the greatest hinderance to your own success. Stop it.
The only formula to being successful in our business is constant effort and exposure.
In other words, the work you put into this business is directly related to the success you get out of the business.
Now, for the Education
If you are willing to put in the work, the next step is how to maximize your return on that labor investment. You want to work smart. We all do. No once wants to waste their effort. So start this week off by making a plan and start putting your Webcomp portfolio out there. This includes active projects where you are submitting the URL to your Webcomp AND inactive marketing, where you’ve blanketed your URL everywhere you can (Facebook, email signature, Twitter account, personal website, IMDb, etc).
Now for some action. Putting your portfolio to work!
We get lots of surprised responses from talent and clients alike from the volume and completeness of our communication. While that’s good for us and the TalentSoup brand, it’s a sad reflection on how many agencies operate. We tend to err on the side of too much information!
Much of today was spent getting booked talent their call sheets, communicating with other talent about active jobs and other bookings, and general emails about Webcomp images and incomplete accounts.
Call Sheets (times, locations, maps, brings, hair and makeup status, phone numbers, etc) are assembled, and sent out to booked talent, copying any agencies whose talent are involved, with a request for reply to confirm receipt. This let’s us close the loop and inform clients when all of their talent are confirmed booked.
Communication is important in our industry and it’s a two way street. We book hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of talent every year. So if we are lucky enough to work with you, please over communicate with us. We don’t mind.
Yes, this is rhetorical but its really important that our talent consider their Brand, their Package, their Image. You ARE the product folks. So think about what you are presenting to potential “buyers” of your product.
Here is a perfect example from one of the many ripoff sites (more on that below). We get email “submissions” from our free castings that they rip off our site then charge talent to view. The talent respond and apply, which sends an email LINK to us.
Good Tuesday everyone! Sorry for the slow updates here on the blog.
We’ve got some great stuff cooking so hang in there! And don’t forget to keep looking for work anywhere and everywhere!
Your Webcomp makes it easy, powerful and effective. From stats to track who’s looking at you to beautiful email versions of your Webcomp (not just a link that someone has to follow!), we built incredible tools into your account. So go use them! Check out this short video to get you started.
Given the amazing stores at Natick (that’s who is providing the gifts) I’m guessing this will be an amazing start to one new couple!

Never a dull moment around here…happy Monday everyone!
A brand we all know is back (5th or 6th year they’ve been a client) for some great talent. This project will shoot May 9th but a closed, invite-only go see is mandatory for select talent. That happens this Saturday in Atlanta. Project will book 2 principals and 2 extras.
Can’t give out too much info but project 1110 is another satisfied customer back for more. We’ll be casting kids and adults in Atlanta (150 mile radius I believe). 3 hours on set.
Pro accounts paid $1000, Pro minors paid $750. Entry accounts get 80% and of course, our Agency linked talent will see fees based on their account with us as well.
Project will have a closed, invitation only on May 9th. Then chosen talent will shoot on one day, May 14-16th.
Keep those Webcomp’s fresh folks. You never know when we’ll be submitting you!
