Advertising agencies – advertising is a broad branch in the field of marketing. But what does everything count among them? And why is advertising one of the best paid jobs in the model business? In addition to poster advertising, flyers, catalogues, advertisements and general print advertising, advertising clips, both for TV and the Internet, are also part of the range of advertising. Through the instruments, for example the carrier media, companies try to polish up their image on the market or to set it at all. And I do it deliberately!
You are as a model part of the marketing strategy of Brands
Well worked out marketing strategies are behind an ultimately simple advertising campaign that is spread through the media. The companies try to address their target group directly and to communicate with them on a different level, also to influence them. The aim of this is to make customers feel addressed, identify with the company and finally increase the sales market. In order for the company to achieve these processes optimally, it is important to find the right models for the right advertising. Ultimately, it is these that carry the company’s message to the customer.
Advertising in national markets: commercials and shootings for “all”
Washing machines, laundry stands and detergents. Advertising is much more than fashion and new smartphone. Household products, insurance and supermarkets. For national markets, advertising is produced that is close to the end consumer, less in terms of values such as “lifestyle” and international “jet set”. Here one tries only rarely to arouse the international life feeling in the consumer, mostly it concerns the advertising agencies here around familiarity. Instead of high class parties, in national advertising families tend to drive their new car into the garage, where they simply make a fresh pizza at home in the oven. The family meets at the table, everyone laughs! In the next spot, friends sit at the lake grilling while they drink a cool drink. Afterwards a family father and his daughter are happy about the cheap car insurance.
As a model in advertising, you naturally have countless areas in which you can become active. Just a glance at your mobile phone shows you all shops, all websites, all companies book models or buy picture material. Looking back at the advertising posters, it’s not just fashion companies. Banks, insurance companies, automobile manufacturers, telecommunications companies, they all advertise.
What challenges are there as models in the commercial area?
Many New Faces work well with fashion because their facial expressions are still relatively rigid. That makes her kind of cool and as long as you’re very young as a model, it works. At some point, however, the demands will rise. From the first shooting with five models, who play a group of close friends for a commercial, up to one of the most difficult tasks in commercial photography: family shootings! Therefore a little insight into how difficult it is to capture emotions in the perfect moment from all involved. There are also children on the set, no professionals and maybe a family dog who doesn’t always do everything on command.
Family shootings with kids and spouse
For example, you must learn to interact with children and other models. For a single photo, the same motif is often shot over several hours. They are all just waiting for all models to convey the perfect emotion at exactly the same moment. For example, the father should throw a ball to the child, while the mother joyfully clasps her hands and the dog lies perfectly. So the scene is repeated, over and over again. Really exhausting! With every single shot you have to bring out the emotion again and again. A really challenging job that requires a lot of practice and skill.
Large campaigns require a large team – for a single photo
Especially photos that look simple on the advertising poster have often been produced with a lot of effort and large teams. The campaign is initially planned in the advertising agency over weeks and months. Afterwards, photographers will be booked for the photo shoot, technology, the entire location, catering and much more. Anything for a photo.
The success of a photo shooting depends at this moment therefore crucially on you. Your performance must be available at the push of a button. Your smile must be perfect even if you had a long night flight the day before. And even when you’ve barely slept. Even if you’re sick, you can’t stop a production so easily. Experienced models are therefore a lot of value on the set, they reliably bring their performance.
Advertising in international markets: Requirements are even stricter
While in the individual countries the focus is very much on the average consumer, international advertising often looks for international dimensions. That means: Perfect body, full hair, charm and style. International top models offer this mix.
