Finding your promo models and hostesses: why companies need to avoid the "do-it-yourself" booking.
An excellent quality hosting represents a real calling card for your company during events, shows and exhibitions. Hostesses and models are the key figures which attract potential new customers and make the visitors' experience special. These girls stand out for beauty, elegance and fine attitude since their primary task is to improve the global image of your business. But why should companies pay extra money for a staffing agency, instead of hiring an attractive free-lance girl?
We all know that nowadays the internet gives us the chance to act independently and the Do-It-Yourself is becoming a thing in every field.
Nevertheless, when it comes to professional staff recruitment, the task is not always a piece of cake, and indeed, the consequences of a wrong decision could turn out to be a bitter pill to swallow.
But enough small talk, let's find out together why we should avoid DIY booking!
Three very good reasons why a company should refer to an event staffing agency.
1) First of all, time is money.
Exhibitions, trade fairs and events are a can't-miss showcase for any business, but they also represent a significant investment.
Finding your perfect hostesses implies to canvass the Net, to get in touch with all the suitable profiles and to figure out who could be the most proper and reliable person. Your agency could handle this work for you, taking care of all its stages; before, during and after the event.
See to the catering, setting up the stand and– of course – dealing with guests is challenging; wouldn't it better to devote your energies to it?
2) Another aspect we should not underestimate is the "stood up" risk.
It is always hard to tell by a phone call if the girl you decided to sign up is trustworthy and you don't want to be out of your hostess the night before the exhibition. But if you have an agency to refer to, you don't need to worry about this sort of inconveniences, since bookers are prepared to solve any emergency situations.
3) Scam Alert!
Also, with the spread of Social Media and editing programs, we all deal with every day, touched-up pictures. Obviously, there is no way for a company to arrange live castings and there is a chance to jump into a girl whose look is very different from what we have expected.
Once again, if you count on a professional agency, you can be sure that what you see is actually what you get, since recruiters work precisely to ensure the quality of your staff. In most cases, the agency knows her hostesses personally and can rely on a wide-ranging database, complete with clients' feedback.
As you can see, "buy cheap, buy twice" is not always true. Saving money on your staff will steal a ton of your precious time, and the effort to economize could end up costing you an arm and a leg.
