Being a spokesmodel requires a level of confidence and charisma from people who want to find success in the industry. This is because they represent more than the brand that they work for. As spokesmodels, they have the responsibility to earn peoples’ trust to help ease the process of making their next purchase.
Kimi Weintraub, the most sought-after spokesmodel in South Florida,
“I have a genuine desire and take pride in wanting to understand and relate to my clients. My development training and innate people skills allow me to not only connect with my clients with confidence and reliability but also with viewers watching me on screen,” she said.
Because of her expertise, Kimi has a lot of experience in the industry which makes her advice valuable to those who want to follow in her footsteps.
Taking Control Of Their Careers
“My biggest advice to anyone branching out into this industry is not to wait for the bookings to come in, but to bring in the business yourself. Nobody cares more about your finances and your career than you do. Sometimes youʼll have to think outside of the box to make your dreams come true,” she said.
One example can be taken from Kimi’s life. This was when she turned one agency booking into a booming business. After her first on-camera speaking job that she booked less than two years ago, Kimi realized she had a true passion for it.
But when youʼre just starting, those jobs are very hard to come by. Kimi would audition and attend castings for dozens of bookings in the hopes of landing just one of those jobs.
Tired of waiting, Kimi decided to build her reen screen studio, film herself, edit the videos, and sell them to interested clients looking for a professional video to promote their business.
“I spent hours at YouTube university learning the ins and outs of green screen lighting, filming, and editing along with getting much-needed help from a friend and mentor of mine who is an expert in all things photography and videography,” she shared.
Within weeks, Kimi had purchased and assembled cameras, tripods, lights, and turned a spare bedroom into a fully functioning green screen studio where she produced hundreds of videos for businesses all over the world.
“I am truly passionate about my career, any time Iʼm in front of the camera, it never feels like work. It is true. If you love what you do, youʼll never work a day in your life,” she said.
