Contact is a platform that allows creative talent to be booked directly. Already operating in London, Paris and New York with clients including Vogue, Burberry and Nike. Contact allows clients to search, find and hire talent anywhere globally directly over desktop or mobile without going through an agency.
Contact was born in 2018, out of the need for change in the modelling industry. Contact creates an ecosystem where the talent have control over their own careers. Talent can currently select the jobs they want, on the terms they agree and manage payments via the platform. Contact provides full transparency on fees and costs and ensures the client exists.
The industry has always been associated with high commissions and hidden costs. Traditional agencies currently use "bookers" to manage a finite number of models whilst the booking process can be time-consuming, expensive and result in costly miscommunication.
Contact doesn't take a commission from its models vs the 30 - 37.5% industry average, instead it charges a 20% booking fee from it's clients. Models get paid within 7 days rather than months later as with some traditional agencies. The ease and speed of talent search using one platform reduces costs, whilst Contact's upcoming in-app communication has been designed to save time and communicate changes in schedules.
We're bringing a tech-enabled approach to an old fashioned, broken system. Our strategy is to move into other creative verticals, beyond models, such as photographers, stylists and HMUAs. more
