The Cost of Hiring Models

With inflation at an all-time high, it is understandable that many of us are trying to save on costs. At Models Direct, we know that businesses are relying on alternative innovative methods of cutting costs and clamping down on extra expenses. Why should they have to spend unnecessarily and lose more money?

When it comes to marketing a campaign, the question that will arise will be whether it is worth sourcing models independently or hiring them through an agency. Essentially it is: do you do it all yourself or enlist the services of professionals in the industry?

Word of mouth referral is great, or even scouting models independently through other mediums such as reaching out over social media platforms to influencers or connecting with models via LinkedIn. These methods are possible whereby you will be contacting and liaising with models on your own terms. It might take some time, research, perseverance and chasing up to find what you are looking for. Your vision for your brand’s or company’s message can be met… but at a price other than just money.

Your timeframe might be comprised of searching for the right model. It will take time to find ‘the one.’

Your budget might be more than you predicted even if you have found the right model. If their rates are too high, your expenses may become more of an inconvenience.

Your team may become overworked searching for the right person to fit the bill. It takes dedication but can also mean burning out before you have even started especially if your team have other roles to fulfil.

Your resources might be limited. Where do you start searching for your model? Are they reliable, dedicated and motivated to help you? Do they have references to vouch for them on a professional level?

Your perseverance will be tested when you are working to a timescale. What will happen if you cannot find someone in time?

You might need replacements at short notice. Will you be able to fill your model’s shoes should they back out from the job?
