Composite cards are not much of a biggy in this part of the world. What most agencies do is just get a model and ask for payments as agency fee.
Well, to the models especially the start ups, I bring you the good news.
IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO HAVE A COMPOSITE CARD.
Did I hear you say why?
Let me tell you a story.
There was a man called Mr Ayo. He was on a business trip to the United States. He boarded a plane and on the way he caught on something very interesting his seat mate was reading in a magazine. Of course, as business men, they related well. They discussed the economy of Nigeria and how best it was going to be redeemed.
On ending the discussion, his seat mate asked him where he was going to. Mr Ayo told him.
The young man was amazed and told Mr Ayo that he knew the President of the organization. He told Mr Ayo he could help him seal the deal he was going for. He obviously did that because of the kind of intelligence Mr Ayo showed.
He requested for a business card so he could reach Mr Ayo. But Mr Ayo had known. Disappointed. Mr Ayo persuaded him to have his number.
Little did he know. The man was a very busy man because he was the president himself.
Now, imagine you were Mr Ayo, what would you have done?
Your composite card is more like your complimentary card. It shows how professional you are. It is your marketing tool. It shows how serious you are with your modeling career. Models managed by agencies have their agents submitting these cards to companies who select the models they want. Most agencies, sadly, do not do this.
DO YOU HAVE A COMPOSITE CARD?
In our next meet, we will discuss what your composite card should look like. Do not miss it.
Have an extra ordinary week.
