A brief lesson- the first of many, in “Email Etiquette for Models”:
Let’s honestly analyze your email address- If you are submitting yourself for modeling jobs online, and doing so with the email address PartyGirl69_420xxx@stonerbitch.com, briefly take a moment, and reflect on this choice. This moniker of yours just might be sending a less than professional message to those on the hiring end.
So now the solution: get yourself a new and appropriate email address- one that is simple and relevant. This can serve as your “modeling email”. You can keep your old email address as a “personal” account for family and friends only, and use your new modeling account strictly for industry contacts. When setting up your modeling email, try to pick a username that has no chance to be misconstrued- things that include a variation of your name/modeling name are definitely your best bet. Don’t throw in unrelated interests of yours to “jazz it up”, no matter how innocent they are. For example, your name plus your undying love for Taylor Swift- CrystalMillerTaylorSwiftsfirstname.lastname@example.org, is still going to send the wrong message. Try something simple and straightforward, such as: crystalmiller, crystal.miller, millercrystal, crysmiller, etc.
This may seem silly, but minor details like this are very commonly taken for granted in this industry. I assure you, things like this DO MATTER when you are applying for modeling work and WILL make a difference in how you are being perceived!
Happy emailing! xoxo
