Agent Month continues here at ARG! Last week I explained the differences between ATA, NATR and SAG Franchised Agencies and what that can mean for you as a client.

Now, there are a LOT of talent agents out there, and I’ll be the first to tell you… some are wonderful and others are… not so great. When it comes to your team, you want to have a team you can trust.

What makes a talent agent good at her job? Let’s break it down. Join me this week as I break down the skills an agent should have, and some things I’ve come to expect from my own representatives. 

When it comes to rep – you deserve an AMAZING talent agent on your team! Learn what makes a good talent agent with these tips and expectations from @ActResourceGuru @Ajarae! #TalentAgent #ShareClick to Tweet This Episode of #GuruTips!

Remember – these tips are just as applicable for talent managers as they are for agents, though managers don’t negotiate contracts.

I hope these tips help you! To grab your copy of the Agent Action Guide: How to Meet, Sign and Love Your Agent… No Matter What Your Resume Looks Like (including the full explanation on how to understand and potentially revise the General Services Agreement agency contract) click here!
