The Battle with Internet Modeling Websites

It is so easy to get wrapped up in the Internet Modeling world to remember that the "real modeling world," involves working in the "old fashion," way of mailing headshots, compcards and having these tools. Becoming your own business might seem simple from just a photo download and then go! The comments come in, the photo shoots are scheduled, but many of these moments, encounters and shots could seem to be really worthless when it comes to how a girl really gets ahead as a model. The Battle is that is feel good, you feel connected to being a model and you like the feeling of getting hits and clicks and comments, but the real truth of being a model, working as a model with brands and magazines invovles a lot more work than staring at your profile on a free modeling website. So before you rely on the Internet to make you known, start taking action and using the old fashion way to get ahead. You need stamps! Envelopes. A good printer to print your resume. You need to make a comp card, www.compcard.com. You need to understand that modeling is more than using just one approach or angle, it is using them all and not missing a beat by letting your goals slip-side because you only think your chances are being an Internet Model. There is so much more out there for you, you just have to seek it and use ALL of your resources.
