Givenchy: Exclusive women’s fashion

The accompanying video for Paris Fashion Week, in which Givenchy presents its 2021/22 fall/winter collection, is characterized by gloomy and dark elements. The cool and fast show reminds of something dystopian.

Balmain: Runway on the tarmac

A unique and recognizable silhouette, style and attitude, fine craftsmanship, this is Balmain. The truly stunning new Balmains collection is presented at an airport, on the wings of an airplane, on the tarmac and even in outer space! The intergalactic runway with the moon in the background is a real highlight.

  • Here you can find more videos from Balmain.

Chanel: Timeless ready-to-wear fashion

This year’s Chanel collection is classic Chanel: chic, elegant, timeless, a little casual. Check out the new Autumn/Winter 2021/22 womenswear collection here.

Miu Miu: Runway in the mountains

Founded in 1993, Miu Miu is the instinctive counterpart to Prada, an experimental, alternative expression of a unique vision. Miu Miu takes its name from Miuccia Prada herself and draws on the unconventional, complex and impulsive character of the woman behind it. The fashion is presented behind a breathtaking backdrop of snow-white mountains:

Louis Vuitton: Fashion at the Louvre

The crowning finale of the Paris Fashion Week on March 10 is the fashion house Louis Vuitton. To the music of Daft Punk, the models walk in the new designs without an audience in the Louvre in Paris and present fashion that is anything but boring! Watch the video of the new Louis Vuitton collection here.

Blawko22: Digital model with badboy vibes

Blawkoo22 – Miquela and Bermuda have already made a name for themselves in the Digital Models world. In addition to the two women, there is now finally a man alongside the Digital Models. We present: Ronald F. Blawko. Better known as Blawko22, attractive, mysterious, a real sex symbol. Just like a real model, he causes a sensation and entertainment, for example with his turbulent love life.

The Blawko Look: Mask and Badboy Look

Blawko’s look is reminiscent of the typical fuckboy look: streetwear look, urban, stylish and special. His trademark is the mask he wears to cover his mouth and chin. There is no picture without the face covering. According to his own statement, he does it to look , a more mysterious and enigmatic. “It is always good to put a little mystery in his look”. Exciting and unusual it definitely makes him. Maybe he’ll change his mind and we’ll get to admire this beau’s full face at some point. Besides his mask, Blawko’s distinctive look is also represented by his tattoos, the most noticeable being the tattoo on his forehead and eye. The tattoo on his forehead represents his love for Ashley Funicello Spinelli.

Model career: small start of a big career

Just like normal supermodels, digital supermodels also have a busy schedule. Blawko has worked for brands like Off-White, Balenciaga and Supreme. He graced the cover of KingKong Magazine and was part of the Absolut campaign at the Sonar Festival. In keeping with his skincare, which is hugely important to him, he did an ad for Glossier Skincare.

Ronald F. Blawko. The digital model was created in 2016 by Brud, founded by Trevor McFedries and Sara DeCou. Brud also created model friends Bermuda and Lil Miquela. As a fun detail, Blawko wears Brud’s logo on his right thigh. He and his friends are represented by the PR company Huxley.

Sex symbol of a new era

Blawko, who hails from Los Angeles, rose to fame as a colleague of famed robot beauty editor Lil Miquela.

In terms of character, Blawko is an incredibly self-convinced, almost self-absorbed guy. He is almost fascinated by his appearance: He would love to clone himself so he could then kiss himself on the forehead. His looks are what he thinks about all day. If that doesn’t sound like self-conviction, the young beau can afford it: With his smooth buzz cut, his airy eyebrow slits and the facial tattoos, he is considered a sex symbol.

Here you can find other successful virtual models in the world:

More than fuckboy look?

When it comes to love, the attractive Blawko knows his stuff, if you look at his You-Tube channel. Loud instructions on how to get the best women or what you have to do so that the online dating and swiping on Tinder and Co. finally brings success. But how does it look like with him in terms of love?

Blawko is a guy who likes to go on dates and probably shouldn’t lack beautiful women. But what about a committed relationship? There is supposedly a bizarre love triangle between him and Miquela and Bermuda. How the story plays out and whether Blawko will soon be seen partnering Bermuda again in a fashion show…it remains exciting. A kiss picture without his mask would definitely be….

But even if things aren’t going well in the relationship, Blawko knows one thing: how to stay friends with his ex-girlfriend. At least that’s what one of his YouTube videos promises.

Blawko’s Youtube: Relationship with virtual models and his life

Like many of today’s stars, the model is also active on YouTube. 4800 subscribers regularly watch the model’s videos. On his channel he publishes videos about his life as a young robot, gives love tips or gives a tutorial on how to get a great body.

Virtual Influencers: Top List! Lil, Miquela, Zoe Dvir & Co.

We dive into the world of digital models, influencers and Instagram stars. Virtual influencers are taking over the market, are no longer hype. Lil Miquela, Zoe and Ella!

We introduce you to models including Lil Miquela and Ella Stoller, the first two virtually created models and what exactly makes each of them so special. And how they managed to get on the runways and covers. Here’s the top list of virtual avatars:

Zoe Dvir: From bartender to catwalk model

Virtual Influencer / Models / Avatar: Social Media Marketing Strategy – Trends

Virtual / Digital Influencers – Cocaine Models is the first model agency in Europe with virtual influencers. Exclusive and new! For many, virtual or digital influencers are something completely new. Especially for marketing strategies. International examples like Lil Miquela show that it makes little difference to people if the star on Instagram is “real”. What is “real” on Instagram? The virtual and the real world are getting more and more mixed up. Instead of classical marketing methods (TV, poster) more and more brands are changing to modern marketing methods like social marketing and even more special influencer marketing.

What is Influencer Marketing?

Influencer marketing is an approach that attempts to maximize the effectiveness of a company’s marketing activities. Therefore, agencies design concepts and strategies around people who have a large community (many followers) and whose opinions carry weight within the community. In this way the followers carry the messages further, into their micro-communities. Influencer Marketing is a subordinate part of Social Media Marketing.

Influencer marketing is a social marketing strategy that focuses on conveying brand messages. Instead of marketing directly to a large group of consumers, such as on TV or with poster advertising, influencer campaigns usually focus on a specific target group, or followers of the influencer. Influencer marketing usually comes in combination (cross-media) with social marketing (like ads) and content marketing. Tip! Read here (external) more about Influencer Marketing, Social Marketing (like Ads) and Content Marketing.

The focus of the activities is however on the purposeful information spreading of the Influencer to their or its personal target group.

Virality is not equal to influencer marketing

Although some in marketing consider virality (word-of-mouth marketing) and influencer marketing to be the same, there is a big difference between the two disciplines in social media marketing. Influencer marketing is about getting key people (relevant people with access to the desired target group) to make their influence felt in their own community.

Word-of-mouth marketing is the actual way in which this communication takes place between influencers, community and other people. Therefore almost every influencer marketing by nature includes word-of-mouth marketing activities. Especially the scattering effects (friends) make influencer campaigns so interesting and effective, if they are strategically prepared and planned correctly.

Digital influencers: hype vs. classic marketing

Traditional, digital marketing works less and less, just think of “pop-ups” and “ad blockers”. Similar to TV advertising, every form of marketing loses its appeal over the years. People are simply used to it. Accordingly, marketing strategies must change. Social media marketing is no longer new. Facebook, for example, was founded in 2004, it will soon be 20 years old and the first generation will take Facebook for granted. Nothing new, everything has been there before.

One of the newest and most effective forms of marketing is Influencer Marketing. Because, the connection between sender (influencer) and receiver (community) has never been so personal. Thousands of examples and best practices show how successful such campaigns can be when brand and influencer match.

So instead of reducing revenues from digital advertising and content marketing, smart companies are investing in this new form of marketing. Influencer marketing is not “just” reach, for your own brand name. Because of the close connection, a large, personal factor also plays a role. This makes influencer marketing activities so much more emotional than classical marketing strategies.

We are excited about all her steps that will come now! Here you can see her first official commercial, released today on our YouTube channel.

Digital Influencer?! The Hype

Virtual models now appear on the front pages of major magazines such as Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle and Vanityfair. They are the new faces of marketing campaigns and receive a lot of attention and prestige in the social media. The generated models are not only incredibly hyper-realistic, but also capable of seamlessly transforming and revealing completely new outfits, poses and faces. Because each model’s look is completely unique and is generated from scratch, the models can be tailored to meet the needs of each client.  This technology has the potential to be used by fashion brands as a time- and money-saving measure. The possibilities for what can be created are virtually endless.

The planning of an Influencer campaign by agencies varies greatly depending on the challenge of the individual project. But in general, it is all about identifying the perfect target group or the desired reach. Because, unlike many people think in daily online marketing, it is not about working with a specific influencer, but in 90% of the cases, the reach is first determined by the agency. In other words, which target group is to be addressed, what distinguishes it, demographic characteristics but also emotional ones.

Only when the basic goals have been defined and the persons (target group) we want to address with our campaign, the actual search for the influencer begins. The influencer is then evaluated analytically and in a structured manner using various social media tools, and prepared for presentation. The next step is to decide which person the company wants to work with.

Before that, the basic strategy of the Influencer Marketing Campaign is discussed.

Target group, goals and call-to-action

The definition of the topics is just as relevant as that of the target group. After the target group, we look at which topics are best suited to address the respective target group. This involves various characteristics that a campaign can have, not only the graphic and visual content but also the texts and the information they contain.

If we take a look at the information carrier alone, we have numerous possibilities here. Depending on the social network, the placement of links is possible so that a customer can directly use the option of a purchase. This is called Call-To-Action and is the direct forwarding of a customer, through an online marketing campaign, to a product or service. This works excellently with influencers on almost all platforms, from Instagram and TikTok to YouTube and Facebook.

With the currently very popular Instagram network, which appeals especially to a young target group (up to 40 years of age), it is again not possible to place links away from the stories. Here many agencies work mainly with coupon codes or hashtag campaigns. In the end, the goals of a campaign can be evaluated by monitoring and other social media software. The text is not only about links, but also emoticons are very popular to express complex feelings or even emotions with a sign.

Text, links, emojis… Social Marketing in every detail

Compared to the normal language we use, emoticons contain extremely many characters. Everyone knows the saying:

Picctures say more than 1,000 words

As mentioned above, campaign planning goes deep until the final strategy is found.

In the end it goes from the global schedule to details like “posting texts” and emojis in the posting. Emojis stand for a single piece of information, which in turn expresses complex issues. In short, you can talk a lot about the discount code or just post a happy smiley. The happy smiley will get more reactions than the simple text. The question is how long is the text? You see, Influencer Marketing is a very complex field and just the topics of planning and defining the target group is a chapter in itself, depending on the complexity of the individual project.

We also help you develop media concepts and produce content for YouTube, Instagram and other social networks. If you have any questions please contact our Influencer Marketing Agency.

Increase reach: Marketing strategy “Community”

The more people ‘talk’ about you or your brand, the more successful you are! The principle is well-tried and also works in Social Media Management. To gain reach in social networks like Instagram and TikTok, it is especially important to work with the right people – the perfect influencers. For lifestyle, beauty, fashion and travel, models are the perfect multipliers! They set trends, meet famous people and wear the latest collections. Thus they offer one of the most authentic product placement for your own brand.

Opinion guide: Set trends instead of following them

Just like editors in magazines, influencers in social networks are the opinion leaders. They are interesting for people because they report live and directly from their private lives. By this absolutely authentic presentation their photos, stories and videos in social networks and with their Followern are hot desired. Products and brands they use are bought, used and in the best case further-recommended. As a result, the influence of social media as a marketing tool and advertising medium has become particularly strong.

Especially in the younger target groups, influencers on Instagram, TikTok & Co. are the stars of the new age. Everyone who wants to follow these trends follows them, not the classic TV commercials. Even young bloggers reach thousands, tens of thousands of people with their channels. This offers brands, fashion labels, businesses and companies unbeatable advantages of direct customer contact and sales promotion.

Efficient marketing and first-class results

Multipliers, influencers, testimonials, brand ambassadors – there are so many names for this one popular concept in Referral Marketing. Our model agency is one of the first movers for social media & Models. Fashion companies profit especially from models as brand ambassadors. The organic reach is almost free of wastage.

Book strong multipliers for your next social media campaign – with CM!

Classics like YouTube, Facebook and youngsters like Instagram, TikTok

Modern market leaders – Instagram often still a secret tip in online marketing of companies and businesses for their products and services, which are to be advertised or promoted in social networks. For few weeks it is in addition, possible to switch to Instagram advertisement. What distinguishes Instagram, especially from the other major social networks, is the very precise targeting of target groups. Facebook has since taken first place with over 1.5 billion users, Instagram already has over 1 billion. Due to the previously very specialized user group, the image network is inherently low scatter loss in promotion. Crossmedia, network-spreading work is the success prescription for range and Coverversion in social networks such as Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, TikTok & Co.

Here are the big players for Germany:

  • Instagram – The app for photos & small videos
  • YouTube – The biggest video platform
  • Facebook – The network for everyone
  • TikTok – Kids and teenager

Monitoring and Reporting: Measuring success

If a company or enterprise wants to successfully advertise products in social media, two factors must be taken into account. This is the choice of media (mix, style, channel, etc.) for the clever placement but also the verification (monitoring) of the success after the advertising campaigns. Social Media Monitoring is therefore concerned with the particular challenge of checking results – successes and goals that a company has set itself in the run-up to the respective campaign. Various methods of analysis, most of which have already been made available by the individual social networks, can help here. Here you can read out different information and see if your campaign was successful on the web. The key figures in Social Media Management are among others:

  • Target group (demographic characteristics, interests, geography, behavior)
  • Technology and user data (stationary, mobile)
  • Acquisition and origin (search engines and social media)
  • User behavior and conversion

Social Media Ads & Retargeting: Push Effect

Especially for the technological components, social media managers can create outstanding complex campaign plans for companies and enterprises. For example, we can show different ads to users who receive our ad but use a new iPhone than to users with older devices.

This scattering effect is excellent for companies with products in high and low price segments. Different messages can be sent to different target groups. Another component of sales promotion through social networks is retargeting, the intelligent re-targeting of visitors. By retargeting we intercept users who have already been interested in your offer. This increases the users’ willingness to interact and the success in the online media.

Example: Instagram, Facebook and Youtube Ads

Step one: Create a campaign with digital models. Step two: Gain reach with paid ads, remarketing and retargeting. Here is an easy visualization, for example, if you are fashion store with local flag ship stores. Ads will be shown to visitors only, with selected range of age and range to the local stores.

Find influencers: Complexity search to contract

Influencer marketing can be divided into 3 levels. Every single step requires time and patience. Especially because as a marketing manager, CEO, etc. you are not talking to an entrepreneur, often influencers are even minors. In this case, parents or legal guardians have to be involved as well.

Search and find authentic trademark advocates – step 1

The first step is the identification of suitable influencers, because authenticity plays an important role here. To start an effective campaign, the influencer should ideally already have interest in the brand or, even better, the direct product. For example, a model would be a good influencer for hotel chains, and a photographer would be a good influencer for camera manufacturers.

Evaluation and analysis of followers – step 2

The next step is the evaluation or analysis of the influencer in relation to the existing range. Caution, especially bought Likes make a quick evaluation difficult. Therefore, we also recommend working with a good influencer agency.

Contact and negotiations – step 3

The final step is to target the people who are likely to have the greatest impact on your brand or marketing message. Insofar as brand and influencer are “on the same wave”, the final step is to negotiate the terms. These include budgets, the number of postings on the individual networks, but also photo shoots, for example for additional media, keyword: content marketing.

Important: If an influencer thinks that your product or service is bad, he or she will most likely share the experience. So the “chemistry” between brand, products and influencer should be right. If not, distance yourself from a collaboration.

Los Angeles: CM goes LA – Become a model, casting dates & agency

Model Agency Los Angeles – Hello LA! Your favorite model agency is now in LA. Become a model, application, castings, now also in California, one of the most beautiful states in the USA. You always wanted to become a model at CM? You already applied for LA or you never did? Now is your chance! Apply online now or come to one of the next live castings. Here is some first info about LA.

Becoming a Model and Castings: News

Indeed, it’s time, the big dream comes true and we open our first office in Los Angeles! January 12 is the official start and probably the kick-off for a lot of work. With Cocaine Models, we have built a strong and popular agency with clients over the past few years. With international jobs, in Europe and America. If you’ve been out of Los Angeles before but haven’t had an agency invitation yet, second chance? And even if you haven’t had any contact with our agency before, this is your chance to apply to our modeling agency.

Here are some first tips for your model application in Los Angeles and the process.

Becoming a Model: Requirements in Los Angeles

For models there are many requirements, for example, in the height, the weight, as well as in the resulting proportions. Even in Los Angeles there are strict measurements when it comes to international fashion clients, commercials and fashion shows. Of course there are always exceptions, the zeitgeist changes the fashion world, the media but also the advertising. What we as a model agency, also our model scouts pay special attention to, are for example small, extra highlights, such as freckles or tooth gaps. So there is no perfect model, not even in LA. But as a model you come very close to the ideal of beauty. As described, you can not summarize it in general have e.g. give a few guidelines.

For female models, the ideal case

  • Body height women 174 to 180 cm
  • Beautiful and / or striking face
  • Slim proportions

For men models is the ideal case:

  • Body height from 184 to approx. 192 cm
  • Slim and athletic proportions
  • Muscle building must not be too extreme
  • Cutie or striking

As described, if you really want to become a model, you should try it and just send an application. Then you will see if the model scout gets back to you or if you don’t get any feedback. If you want to apply, you’ll find some important information right here! Before that, let’s take a quick look at the typical path to a modeling contract. How does one actually become tomorrow? How do you get discovered as a model?

Become a model in LA: 3 ways to a model contract

There are 3 ways to become a model.

  1. Scouting on the street or Instagram
  2. Online application with Polaroids
  3. Open Model Agency Casting

Let’s look at the 3 ways, their advantages and disadvantages, in detail.

Scouting on the street or instagram

The most direct and immediate way to a new contract in Los Angeles is to be discovered by one of the model agency scouts.

The very first step is a visit to our agency, here you get to know our model booker and we get to know you. Here it is no longer “only” primarily about height, weight, proportions, but about motivation and sympathy. This is the fastest way, therefore it is also quickly described.

You got messaged on Instagram?

Important. Our model agency writes only and exclusively via the official Instagram channel to @cocaine.models

If you’ve been messaged by another Instagram account, have a fake. Protect the others and report these channels!

Online application with Polaroids

The best way for you is the online application. Here you can check quickly, free of charge and without obligation, whether your type is currently being sought in our agency portfolio.

The online application is completed in a few seconds, all you need is a few contact details and Polaroids. What that is, you can read here!

In addition, you only need to send a few initial data and information. The entry is very simple, there is a ready-made application form. You only need to enter a few details, e.g. your name, your place of residence, your contact details such as phone and email address and your height. In addition, you send two photos. Ideally a portrait and a full body photo. You can find a good description of how to take your photos in the link above.

Open Model Agency Casting

Way number 3, to become a model, are open agency castings, which are offered from time to time. E.g. in the context of Fashion Week. Here in Los Angeles you will get more frequent model casting appointments in the near future.

How does such an open model casting actually work? Basically, the agency wants to get to know as many as possible in a short time. Getting to know someone live is still something different than judging someone through photos or videos. Such open model castings are relatively costly for model agencies in the organization. You need a location, the right and important people, as well as bookers and scouts must have time. Nevertheless, it is worthwhile to organize such live castings, because as described, you get to know the people much better!

Queue – at open castings there is often a bigger queue if 50 or 100 models are there at the same time. It’s best to relax, find a comfortable spot and distract yourself with your smartphone. Waiting times and patience are definitely part of a model’s job.

Model Castings: Dates in LA

Don’t want to miss a casting call in Los Angeles? Follow and very much to instagram!

Tip + Advantage CM: We are looking for models not only for the American market, but also for the European market. An unbeatable advantage, one management for two large territories.

Here you can see for example one of our last big castings in Berlin, Germany:

Who are we? CM: The Model Agency

Our agency was founded in 2015 and since then we have fought our way to the top! With our team! Model bookers, scouts, models, influencers, as well as accounting and international setup.

  • So CM is not “just” a model agency, but a management.

Another advantage that many models and influencers appreciate about our concept. We not only take care of the placement, but also the set-up and international placement. So that you can work not only in your local market, not only regionally and nationally, but internationally.

Jobs: fashion show, social, e-commerce, campaign & TV

We are looking for models for various jobs for our clients in Los Angeles. Starting with fittings and showrooms, for fashion retailers and buyers, to fashion shows, with something more perfect. Typical model jobs at our agency also include social media shoots, such as for Instagram, as well as e-commerce shoots for new collections and campaigns. Once you’ve mastered all these levels, it’s on to campaigns, photo shoots and commercials. With broadcasting, on national TV, streaming providers on an international level, in the cinema, as well as on your smartphone, in apps or in the browser.

Here again a small overview, to the different model jobs:

  • Showroom
  • Fashion show
  • Social media
  • E-commerce
  • Campaign
  • Commercials

Welcome to the City of Angels

From Central City to Bel Air to Hollywood, Long Beach, Venice and a little further to Malibu, no part of LA and yet beautiful and relatively close. But LA is most famous for Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and the world famous Hollywood sign.

If you want to make it to the top, you should have a goal as a model. You should work abroad sooner or later! Although you already have many options in Germany and already live in a big market for advertising and fashion, there are even bigger jobs and campaigns abroad. You already know the “Big Four” from Fashion Weeks all over the world. But there are many more interesting markets for models abroad. In Europe, for example, there are Istanbul, Athens and Barcelona. In Asia there are several well-known and up-and-coming metropolises. As a model you can work here in Seoul, in Tokyo, Hong Kong or right next to Hong Kong, Gzenshen. As a model, the world is open to you.

International Modeling: Chand from Stockholm visits Germany / Shooting Time

In our new small model documentary we accompanied Chand three days in Germany. Together with Oliver Rudolph Chand shoots for trueprodigy. The brand sells in over 35 countries! So that the looks in the new lookbook, the shop and the store elements are just right, the label flew Chand in from Stockholm. We accompanied Chand backstage, in the hotel, in the gym but also at breakfast. A little insight for New Faces!

Casting! Casting! Casting! Production cities in Southern Europe and Asia

Most models are automatically drawn to the “Big Four”. However, many also go to cities for a few months to build up the book, cities that you don’t initially associate with fashion, but which are a microcosm all of their own. These include cities like Istanbul, Mumbai and Hong Kong. Here, products are produced for the whole world. Not only fashion, but also electronics and toys. Many producers are keen to do photo shoots and video shoots directly on location. Here the productions are much cheaper. Thus, the teams are larger, the shootings sets more elaborate.

Elephant, helicopter or dreamlike South Seas beaches? No problem! These countries are a real Eldorado for building up your own book, as you can get an extremely wide range of jobs directly. In addition, there are big brands that produce photos for dealers and buyers right here. This way you can also quickly get international brands. What is the catch? Of course there is a catch, the payment. While you earn four-digit sums as a model in Germany even as a New Face, here it’s only a few hundred euros. While German agencies are strict about rights of use, a subsequent payment is often not so certain. The A&O here is a large agency that has been working with the local agency for a long time and has had good experiences.

Placement – Model agencies and jobs worldwide

At some point comes the moment in which your model agent or your model agency will talk to you about the topic of foreign countries and placement. In principle, there are two different forms of placement abroad.

Direct Booking – direct booking of the model for commercials and shootings

Direct bookings are the most pleasant form of cooperation for you as a model. Your mother agency recommends you to their partner agencies or one of the agencies would like to work with you. Through direct bookings model agencies try to fill their portfolio perfectly, so that they have new interesting models for their customers. With high priced jobs it is often no longer relevant where you come from. The travel expenses are taken over Europe-wide or even worldwide. That’s why agencies like to take good models for direct bookings. You are then just like in your mother agency in the model board of one or more agencies. Availability and option requests are then always forwarded directly to your parent agency. This does not change much for you. Also all updates of measurements, pictures and video material will be coordinated by your mother agency. With a little luck you will get your first bookings quickly. Since these are “direct” you won’t have to go on a casting beforehand, you will be booked solid and travel to the production location. But it is much more profitable for you to give directly on location, to “on stay”.

On Stay – Work abroad for two to three months

The supreme discipline for models: conquer the world! During an On Stay you will travel as a model for sixty to ninety days to a partner agency. Especially in the beginning, you will live in model shared flats and attend countless castings every day. If you decide to take this step, it is clear to you that you want to concentrate fully on life as a model. A stay abroad must be planned in advance. In Germany, most models start after school, before they begin their studies. For models it is the ideal time to travel. You are currently in the stage of “never seen before” and are in the absolute prime of your life. If you take the chance now, you can make it internationally as a model.

On Stay Expiry – How you live during your stay

First of all, as a model you have to actively decide to try your hand abroad. The active decision is important because you will have to deal with big agencies and clients at a young age. For example, if you say that you would like to go abroad, your agency will invest time in finding a good agency for you. Contracts will be signed and maybe airline tickets already booked. If you break off a few days before, this will not have a positive effect on your career, as trust will be lost. It is also important for you to have thought everything through in advance. You will be in a foreign country and will also be living with strangers for sixty to ninety days. If you are still young, talk to your parents about your plans right at the beginning. They have a lot of life experience and can always give you good advice on your way. Besides, you will always have a contact person in your agency from the beginning.

Many models ask me at the beginning, how does such an “On Stay” work? Will it cost me money? With a good model agency behind you, your stay abroad is just as well planned as a package holiday. Contracts are signed weeks or even months before the trip. So you know very early when you will travel, where you will live, who your local contact person is and much more.

An On Stay never costs you money as a model. Good agencies always work on the principle that you as a model have no investment. The partner agency abroad takes over all your expenses in advance. This includes the flight tickets, the accommodation but also services on site such as gyms, drivers or “pocket money”. In the end, the costs are deducted from your income. If you end up with a negative amount, the agency will cover the costs. This is what we call “minus balance.” In any case, you gain experience, certainly footage and it doesn’t cost you a cent. Good model agencies invest in their models. If you are proposed for an On Stay, the agency believes in you and the success you could have abroad. Also the local partner agency believes in your success, otherwise they would not invest time and money to fly you in for two to three months.

Yulffi: Bangkok, Munich, Cologne, Madrid to Tokyo

Yulffi is on the road a lot. Here he was after his Reebok campaign (Munich) for a stopover in Cologne to shoot with our Janine, Lea and New Face Johnson. Soon it’s back to Bangkok and with a little luck on to Tokyo.

Garantuee Contract – Guaranteed income and great jobs

Models who have made it far, had many clients and an absolutely fantastic book will gradually get their first “Garantuee Contracts”. Then you even get a guaranteed minimum income from the agencies. They do this when you are so good as a model that, in theory, you don’t need to travel abroad anymore. Or, you already travel so much that other agencies have to convince you to come to them. If you made it here, congratulations.

At some point you will just travel. No longer for sixty to ninety days, but for days and weeks, from country to country, from production to production. Because at some point your network will have grown so much that your management will completely take over the management of your time. You constantly get requests and have to plan your life and all your travels exactly.

If you haven’t had the question in your head for a long time, maybe now you will.

How much does a successful model earn anyway?

As I said, at the beginning of your career you will usually do small jobs for relatively, small fees. Models who make it definitely have the chance to earn an incredible amount of money. Of course I can’t tell you the exact fees, but I want to give you an insight. In Germany you will get for most shootings and shoots fees that are in the four-digit range. Some of them even fall into the three-digit range, for example for small labels that you like yourself. Commercials, on the other hand, quickly bring in high four-figure, sometimes five-figure amounts. It depends on how many production days there are, in how many countries the commercial is broadcast and in which media. For a large commercial, for example for a luxury manufacturer, it can be twenty to fifty thousand euros or US dollars. Whereby the limits are open, some make it already in very young years to etrem much success like supermodel Cara Delevingne or Beckham offspring Brooklyn Beckham. For his first Burberry campaign he got 57,000 US dollars, at the age of 19. It’s worth travelling for, bit by bit: Berlin, Milan, Paris, New York.

    Online editing explained: Basics

    You don’t have any work experience yet, but would like to do an internship with us? Learn here the first details about the job as an online editor and even more specifically content marketing manager. What does your job look like?

    Online editing: Job description

    Web editors prepare content for blogs and websites. They work closely with website managers to create unique, well-structured, readable and engaging content. This regular, new content, increases traffic (amount of visitors) to the site. The better the site is received by existing visitors, the more new readers your writing will attract.

    This job requires an excellent understanding of people, thinking and structures (setup), as well as a good sense of the principles and standards on our part.

    Working environment: Content Management Systems

    Online editors also need to know how to use content management systems (CMS) and insert images into blog posts and websites. So most of this work is done with a content management system. With us, you’ll be working with WordPress, the world’s most popular content management system, to do this. You will regularly write new content for our editorial calendar and learn from one of the best in online marketing.

    One of the main tasks of a web editor is to prepare articles for publication on the web. Online editors also make text more interactive and engaging by including images, videos and links to other sites in the piece. You’ll usually then also use image editing software like Photoshop to resize or crop images. For links to other websites, you make sure they open in a new tab to keep readers on the page. In addition, you check that the links and media are properly formatted and functional.

    Plan contributions

    As an online editor, you schedule posts according to the website’s predetermined publishing schedule. For example, a website may publish three articles per day, at certain times. Then you will make sure that these posts are actually published at the specified time. You will also schedule social media posts with links to the articles to attract even more visitors to the site when the articles are published.

    Content Marketing Manager

    Content marketing is a specific niche in the field of digital marketing. It is a way for businesses to connect with their audience and new people without selling them their brand or service!

    There are various mediums through which they make these connections, such as blog posts, social media posts, emails, gated content, and videos. Content marketing and creation is truly an “art form” and requires a lot of practice. For you, it’s about designing creative and interesting content that connects with a specific audience (target audience).

    Added value from experts

    It’s value-added content that helps the reader, answers a question or addresses a problem in a way that’s entertaining to read, watch (graphics, images) or listen to (video embed). Becoming known as an expert on a topic builds customer trust and loyalty, especially if you continue to focus on content that adds value to your audience.

    The purpose of content marketing is to move a person to action. Content should entice someone with valuable, engaging, and relevant information. The job of the content marketer is to determine not only how to do this, but also how to evaluate the effectiveness of the strategies employed using metrics.

    A content marketer must be both a storyteller and a data analyst. Ultimately, your goal as a content marketer is to work as part of the company’s overall digital marketing strategy by identifying the target audience and engaging with them in a way that makes sense to them.

    Take a look at the day-to-day tasks of a content marketer.

    Content: Website, email, social media

    You’ll create a vision for blogs, emails, and social media posts. As a content marketer, you’ll work with a team of writers or freelancers to provide topics. A content marketer can and should also be able to write. To create quality written content, you need excellent writing skills and must be able to persuade your audience without overtly selling. You can do this by understanding the needs of your target audience.

    Advanced Duties: Content Marketing Manager

    1. Research trends in your field
    2. Integrate keywords into your strategy and evaluate effectiveness

      How does a casting run?

      For our CM Gosee Days in August we have reserved three days and a separate model apartment, where models who travel to Paris from abroad usually spend their time. So we have an extra protected room and can use each Carsten as a single appointment.

      A casting appointment usually takes 15 to 30 minutes, depending on how many details are added. For example, if you have already gained experience, your model portfolio is already a little set up or you have the prerequisites to work as a model in the big fashion metropolises.

      New Faces are young models between 14-18 years. This is the perfect age to start modeling step by step besides school. Learn more here:

      Dates and address

      Please understand that due to the current situation we will not hold large, open castings. Send us a short application for the casting days. Our model scout is looking through all applications 3 times a day.

The city on the Elbe stands for fashion, premium brands, modeling and luxury. Although it feels a bit more price-conscious than Düsseldorf or Munich. The city is expensive, whether shopping or living, nevertheless Hamburg is among the first places when it comes to shopping experience. Hamburg has, yes it’s true, the most shopping malls in the whole country. Mostly small, chic and elegant malls directly in the city. Besides a lot of flair, the Hanseatic city also offers a wide range of entertainment, fashion and of course good food. For models, model scouts and us as a model agency, Hamburg is, as mentioned above, a real Mecca when it comes to fashion! Luxury is on every corner.

        All the leading fashion designers are on site in Hamburg’s old town and city centre. Whether Jil Sander, Wolfgang Joop or Karl Lagerfeld. Even if they are not native Hamburgers, they have been working in the port city for a long time. So the real fashion icons have been part of the city for ages and of course also shape the image of Hamburg’s city centre with their boutiques. Those who like bigger stores will of course also find all the well-known representatives. Here you don’t have to walk far, just to Mönckebergstraße: From makeup producer MAC to watches by Fossil, shoe shops by Görtz, Zara, Christ, and many more.

        In addition to luxury labels and fashion boutiques, you can also find many places off the typical routes to shop quickly or more extensively. The small independent boutiques are, maybe the impression is subjective, a bit more conservative than in other cities. For the best boutique hotspot, however, you have to take the subway a bit to Eppendorf. Here, many small, unique shops are lined up next to each other. Trends are born here or imported from all over the world – ironically, the modern center of the avant-garde is one of Hamburg’s oldest neighborhoods. Whether shoes, fashion, living or household goods, here the shopping tourist can find everything his heart desires.

        This Mönckebergstraße is generally regarded as Hamburg’s Mecca or the shopping street par excellence. Especially for tourists and short visitors it is easy to reach. The Mönckebergstraße is a traffic-calmed pedestrian zone with many shopping opportunities. It stretches from the main station to the town hall. Here you will find all the above-mentioned, well-known department stores such as Zara, Fossil, etc. can be found here. Of course there are also shops outside the fashion world.

        Finance and high fashion, you can find both in Hamburg at the ‘Neuer Wall’. Not too far from Mönckebergstraße and the Hamburg Stock Exchange, this shopping street offers everything your heart desires, provided you have the necessary change, of course, for the various designer boutiques. Here you will find the real who’s who of haute couture: Armani, Bulgari, Tiffany, Cartier and Louis Vuitton, to name but a few.

        Jungfernstieg

Two highlights at once, the waterways and shopping! Whether shopping or just for a stroll, Hamburg’s Jungernstieg always has something special in store. Among others, shoes and leather goods are a real attraction here. Only later we noticed even the Hamburger Hof (not far from the Jungfernstieg), also a really beautifully designed shopping center.

        Trends are created here: Eppendorf

        Where are the hipsters? The trendy district of Eppendorf is home to the young trends. The trendy quarter is a great place to find inspiration. We were particularly struck by the small goldsmiths and weavers in the centre, it’s rare to find such genuine craftsmanship. Therefore, Eppendorf is definitely worth a visit for people interested in fashion!

        Hamburg fish market

        Whether Hamburger or tourist, everyone meets at the fish market. Whether for a cozy beer festival of local breweries or after a long party night for a hearty breakfast. Don’t let the historical name of the fish market fool you! There’s so much more than just stinky fish! Every Sunday there are fresh cut flowers from friendly market people. There is trade at every corner. Since 1703, the Hamburg fish market has stood for cosiness, humanity and a real Hamburg feeling.

        Cologne Fashion Design – Interviews

        In few cities is shopping as worthwhile as in the Rhine metropolis of Cologne. Due to its proximity to the fashion metropolis Düsseldorf and the relative proximity to Frankfurt, Cologne is one of the reference points on the way from Berlin to Paris. Here you will find numerous fashion designers and young students who are trying to win over the fashion world and revolutionize it. Especially in the Belgian Quarter, one of the most attractive “Veedels” in Cologne, where small houses are lined up next to each other, shopping is very worthwhile. Here you can not only admire new creations every season, there is also always a coffee around the corner. As the boutiques are very small, you can very quickly get into a personal conversation with the designer. This makes Cologne so special when it comes to shopping, shopping tips and fashion boutiques.
