Why isn’t anyone viewing or responding to my casting call?
Unfortunately, we cannot say exactly why some people may or may not respond to casting calls.
Model Mayhem is set up to give our members full control over their careers as artists. This means that they can choose to accept work or ignore requests for work if they so desire.
If no one has responded to your casting call, it could be for a number of reasons. The job, pay, or even the wording of the casting might not be attractive enough to members for them to inquire further. They may not be available the days of the project.
If you are casting for an event tomorrow, you will be less likely to receive responses, as most talent book their projects weeks to months in advance. Consider giving people more time to respond to you by posting your casting several weeks before your event!
Check your Title.
If your title doesn’t grab the attention of someone, they probably won’t click on your Sponsored Casting. Model Mayhem can’t help you come up with what is best for you, but you can start by making sure your title accurately describes who you are looking for and what your project is.
Check your Details.
Sponsored Casting Calls should always include the basic details of a job as required by the casting call rules, but this can leave your talent wondering what’s really going on. Giving precise information in your casting helps those reading about your project understand what they are applying for. If you have links to help reference what you are talking about – such as a product website, a video, or a portfolio – include those too!
Compensation makes the modeling world go around.
Only being able to offer trade for work is not necessarily a demerit for responses, but it’s no secret that jobs that offer monetary compensation are more likely to be responded to than jobs that are only trading for images or products.
Finally, if all else fails, you may try sending out some Proactive Alerts.
