FAQ's

Simply complete a search and review our Talent profiles. If you like what you see, join our Platform and reach out to those with great portfolios, and to those who impress you.

How much should I pay a Talent?

Each Talent has their own rate. Therefore, a event's cost will be determined by the type of event, the length of time to complete the job, the Talent's resume and their own individual rate. We recommend asking a Talent for an estimate before starting your project, so you know the range of cost.

There are a couple questions to ask yourself before beginning a project:

Does it require a specialized skill? Proven, qualified artists, particularly in technical disciplines will typically command a higher rate.

How familiar are you with the skill you are hiring for? If you are hiring outside your knowledge base, we recommend doing your homework. Make sure the Talent is qualified for the project by viewing their portfolio. Ask them questions... lots of them! Also, if you have the financial means, this is the time to splurge a bit. Pay the Talent a little extra cash to secure their talent. View EC Model & Talent Agency as a Project Manager helping you find the ideal Talent.

How do I pay my Talent?

After selecting a Talent, reach out to them and inquire about their preferred payment plan. Some Talents will ask for a down payment via Paypal, and some may use an escrow system. Each Talent will have their own desired payment method.

How do I evaluate Talents?

Reviewing a Talent's profile is the best way to determine their strengths and weaknesses. Look for events they have completed that are similar in size and scope to your project. We always recommend reaching out to a Talent and asking them a few questions before beginning a project.

How do I complete a successful event?

Be knowledgeable! Knowing what your project consists of before starting it will help your project go smoothly. Giving in-depth project scopes and answers will give the Talent the best possible chance of completing your vision in a timely manner.

Communication! We know we say this a lot, but communicating clearly, thoroughly and consistently is very important.

Why should I use the EC Model & Talent Agency Community Networking Platform?

EC Model & Talent Agency Network is the easiest way to locate and hire accomplished Talent. Our Talents can make your event shine!.

What if I can't find a Talent for my event needs?

If you can not find a local Talent, browse our other members. Most Talents are open to travel, and do so regularly.

If you still can not find a Talent you trust to complete your project, post your project to our Job Board. This will allow qualified Talent to to submit their resume to you. This makes it easy to review their work qualifications for your event.
