Many people don’t realize that even though you are contacting a trade show model staffing agency, girls are independent contractors. Just as in any field, someone with five years experience can command a higher rate than someone with no experience. As independent contractors, they set their rates. Not every girl will work for a given rate. The agency typically sets what they feel is a competitive price for the particular job and contacts their database of models.

The cost to hire a trade show model varies and is based on

  • Responsibilities – what do you need your trade show model to do? Do you just need a girl to hand out fliers and scan badges, a job virtually anyone can do? Or, do you need a model who is confident with sales and can represent your company and talk professionally about your products or services? The more responsibilities, the higher the rate.
  • Experience – How important is your trade show? More experienced models will perform better. They typically can handle every situation and can often provide you with insight or tips. The greater the experience, the higher the rate.

Promotional model rates vary because:

  1. There are different types of promo models – from street teams to brand ambassadors; there are different kinds of promotional models. As a promotional model agency, we match the model type with your requirements. It may not seem like there is a difference to the casual observer but the experience and responsibilities vary by promo model type.
  2. Model responsibilities Vary – As we mentioned above, responsibilities vary among the promotional modeling types. Having out product
  3. Supply and demand – If you intend on promoting your products at a local concert or NASCAR race the odds are that your competition is doing the same and promotional models will be in high demand for these events. If you need an experienced promotional model, we recommend booking far in advance.
  4. Location – larger markets pay more. Las Vegas promo models, NYC promotional models, and Los Angeles promotion girls all command the highest pay in the country. If you participate in multi-city promotional events, plan your budgets accordingly.
  5. How many hours are worked – Promotional models will typically discount their rates if they are working a large volume of hours. Agencies will often lower their rate for a high-volume time and multi-model jobs. If you only need a model for a few hours, you may want to consider a half a day as the there are minimum rates. When you staff a promo model for part of a day, she is unable to work any other jobs that day.
  6. Miscellaneous – Other variables that affect promo model rates include the model’s desire to work for your company. Models get excited working for large, well-established brands with excellent reputations, especially if they know or use your product. The day of the week and popularity of the event can also influence a model’s interest.

by Amy K

Our models were terrific!! Vanessa and Inna worked well together, did a great job, and the launch was a great success. We had just enough samples for the 2 days and PEZ and PEZ Hedz made it into a lot of hands. They created the awareness and excitement we were hoping for. We made the Wednesday daily news and 10 most awesome moments of the show from Candy Industry (link below), we are#1! http://www.candyindustry.com/articles/86237-awesome-moments-from-this-years-sweets-and-snacks-expo All of the PEZ team, including our CEO from Austria, thought they did a great job as well.

I have been working with TSM for several years and they are by far one of my favorite agencies to work for. They are super organized, reliable and professional and committed to making sure both their models and clients are happy. Ive worked with a lot of agencies over the years so I know this is not always the case! I believe that when an agency treats their models well it creates a better working relationship and commitment to success for all parties involved. I look forward to booking events with TSM and helping to make their clients trade shows successful for years to come!

PROMOTIONAL EVENT TIP: PLANNING IS EVERYTHING

Planning a promotional event can be a challenge, especially for small companies. Planning, when done right, can achieve positive results. Promotional Events include new product launches, partnerships, and any event that puts you face-to-face with your customers. Getting in front of those who can use your products is extremely beneficial in today’s digital age where many companies exist only online.

Planning can go a long way in determining the success of your event. A few tips to help you run a better promotion event:

  • Define your goals upfront – Are you looking to increase brand awareness or generate media coverage for a new product? Are you trying to increase your reputation in particular markets? Having a predefined goal helps you to have an event that maximizes your time and creates the biggest impact with your targeted audience.
  • Define your core message and a plan to demonstrate that messa – You can’t be all things to all people. Are you the hot new company that is disrupting the industry or are you the best tasking or easiest to use? Your message needs to be memorable; you want attendees leaving with a lasting impression of your brand. Once you have your message, how do you demonstrate it? That is the million dollar question. Product demonstrators, promo models, brand ambassadors are the solution. Making sure these models are aware of your core message is important, so don’t forget.
  • Social media and follow up need to be prepared in advance – knowing how you are going to get the most out of your promotional event leveraging the Internet and sales follow up is of vital importance. If your promo models interact with customers, and you didn’t plan for a way to harvest their contact information or provide a call-to-action, then you are missing out on opportunities. Using email addresses, website landing pages, phone numbers, and social media account are proven techniques to keep communication with your customers.

If your promo models acquire new customers, enlarged your customer list or social media presence, then you know your event worked. Please feel free to reach out to us if you promotional models for your big event!
