Over the years, I have made plenty of mistakes when it comes to recruiting models for my senior spokesmodel team. And I see other photographers making the same mistakes!
In today’s episode of The Seniorologie Podcast, I am sharing three mistakes I’ve made and I see others making when it comes to recruiting models for senior spokesmodel teams and how to fix these mistakes to get the most applicants for your senior spokesmodel team!
The Seniorologie Podcast is a weekly podcast hosted by Leslie Kerrigan, creator of Seniorologie, for high school senior photographers. Whether you are just starting out or you have been photographing seniors for a while, The Seniorologie Podcast is your resource for all things senior photography related.
Highlights from Episode 41:
* Mistake 1 – Only posting on social media and not posting enough!! Social media is such a great tool when it comes to marketing and recruiting for your senior spokesmodel team but it is not the only tool! And when we are using it as a tool to recruit new models, we need to make sure we are using it the right way!
* Mistake 2 – Not utilizing our existing clients, models and audience! Too often we focus on new people and overlook the fact that current seniors, current models and even moms can help us find new people to join our team!
* Mistake 3 – Not creating a deadline, sense of urgency or call to action! Simply posting about your model team applications doesn’t prompt people to actually apply. You have to give them a deadline, remind them of that deadline and close the applications to create a fear of missing out if they don’t apply!
