is social media enough to get models for senior model team

The short answer is no! ¬†ūüôā ¬†It is not the only thing you should be using to recruit models for your spokesmodel team! ¬†In today’s podcast, I am sharing part one of a live training I did inside the Seniorologie Community on Facebook where I answer some questions of members who wanted to understand why posting about their program was getting them the results they hoped for.

I remember what it was like trying to get people to want to be a part of something new when I first started my spokesmodel program and I understand how hard it can be. ¬†But in the first part of this two-part episode, I am sharing what things you can do in addition to using social media especially in the beginning stages of running ¬†spokesmodel program that will help get models interested. ¬†I am also sharing info that I got straight from my model team to help you with yours!! ¬†That’s right, teenage insight into what they would do if they saw a post on social and how they would react!! ¬†Listen to this episode for all the scoop!
