Modeling and Selling the Model you are

Well a lot of girls want to be models before they know the answer to " how can I get modeling work."

I think it is important to know how to market a product before creating it, or launching into it. I think it is important to consider what it means to be a model and how to be one. Here are some of my thoughts:

Modeling to me is modeling products, everything from shoes, to q-tips, to washing machines and soft drinks.

Modeling isn't just having a photo shoot, and making a compcard, I think modeling involves going on go-sees, working with brands, magazines and selling.

I think a great model is also a great saleswoman. To sell herself and also the products she works with.

A model knows how to "work" a product, make it look presentable at a shoot, and handle it in a way that speaks, and has emotion.

A model is many sizes, but with always personality, energy and can represent a certain look or has the "parts" and personality to sell a product or brand, magazine editorial and ad campaign.

A model isn't just a person who is on a reality Tv show, a model is someone who is really working with brands, products, in catalogs, ad campaigns, whether online or in print.

A model can be a grandmother and a baby

A model doesn't have to be tall to work in the commercial print modeling world.
