What Talent Agencies Do You Recommend?

 

 

 

 

 

We get this question a lot. There are a lot of talent agencies out there in the adult realm, so it’s not an easy choice.

Based on the happiness of current and past clients, along with our relationship with agencies, there are two we recommend: OC Modeling and ATMLA. Why? There are many reasons., but here are a few:

  • Both agencies treat their talent on their rosters fairly and with dignity.
  • They run their businesses with integrity and do the right thing whenever possible.
  • Both Sandra McCarthy and Mark Schechter are people we respect very highly and are respected as a whole by the industry.
  • They both do their best to get their talent working, and as much as possible.
  • Both agencies have many award-winners on their current rosters.

If you’re looking for an adult agency, you should contact one or both. They’re both selective and not everyone gets in the door. But that’s true of many agencies, since so many people are trying to get into adult. If you’re looking to get into adult, a good place to start is with the right agent. Once you’re working, then you hire a publicist, and that’s where we come in.

Don’t Let Anyone Tell You That You Don’t Need PR

I was recently speaking with someone in the industry who told me a female performer is going around telling people they don’t need PR. I thought to myself this can’t be good. So out of that comes a new blog about why PR is crucial for your career, if you’re serious about it.

There are Hundreds of Girls Entering the Industry Each Month

Yes you read correctly. Without a good agent and PR, there’s no way you will stand out. Of course, there are exceptions, but it’s rare. Interviews, press releases, and all the other services we and other reputable PR agencies provide are important to keep your name out there and get you working. We have had several clients who have experienced a bump in the amount of work they get from having PR. And, with companies it’s definitely a requirement, especially if they are new and want to get the word out there about themselves.

You Need to Pick the Right Publicist

There are some publicists who don’t do much and/or don’t have their clients’ best interests. If someone starts off with the wrong publicist, it can sour them on PR. Make sure you choose correctly. Check their track record, speak to current and past clients, and always go with your gut. If you don’t see results in two or three months, it might be time to get a new PR firm.

Make Sure Your Expectations Are Realistic

Many girls and guys think because they have a publicist, they will definitely get mainstream coverage. It’s never a definite. We have gotten our clients TONS of mainstream coverage and even got them cast in mainstream movies and TV. But the world still isn’t very fond of our industry, so we do our best with this. Also remember you’re not the only client of any PR firm and even if you get specialized attention, they need to service their other clients, also.

You Have to Want to Engage & Work with Your Publicist

Most publicists want you to approve press releases before they go out. And you will need to respond when they reach out to schedule interviews. You will need to RT their Tweets and even come up with your own Tweets. It needs to be a team effort with you and your publicist.

Make Sure You Can Afford It

If you only have PR for a short time, you won’t get the full benefit. Plan to have it for the duration of your career, because once it stops, you won’t see your name out there, unless you sign a contract with a studio that has PR. And, choose a publicist that’s within your budget–the most expensive isn’t always the best. We offer affordable rates and deliver results.

Step Up & Make Your Own Choices

Be careful who you’re seeking advice from as to whether or not you need PR or anything serious about your career or brand. If someone is jealous of you or has an ulterior motive, they’re not someone that you should seek advice from. Your agent, industry veterans or people along these lines are the best people to talk to.
