Whether for a television show, marketing/endorsement work or an advertising campaign, we connect our talent with your client’s needs.
What a Talent Agent Does:
Act as a liaison between clients and brands, PR companies, and others that are looking to hire talent
Match clients with companies who are looking for specific project implementation
Promote and represent a client’s specialties and interests in dealing with potential companies and brands
Negotiate rate, scope, and terms of jobs
Negotiate contracts to reflect the best possible terms and conditions
Invoice and collect payments due
Believe in each client
Simply put, the talent agent’s role is to represent you, your specialties, and your best interests.
Think of your agent as a combination pitch person, negotiator, and advisor — which includes nurturing and nagging!
