Any changes to your main email will reflect as your login email as well. Be sure to keep note of any changes you make to the “Email” field in the Contact Information section of your Profile.
Your Public Profile is your Profile as it would appear publically, mainly to Buyers. It can be accessed by going to “Profile,” selecting the “Profile” tab, and selecting “View Public Profile” at the bottom of the page.
Yes, the standard .png, .jpeg or .gif formats. We also suggest using image sizes of around 250 x 250 pixels.
Display Name is publicly viewable and Full Name is private for accounting, record keeping, and Union purposes.
Outside links will be visible for GOLD Members only. They have paid a premium for this option.
Buyers choose to post Non-Union or Union projects, we have made it easy for Union members to convert qualifying Non-Union projects after the Talent has booked.
No, entering Union Affiliation data allows you to convert Non-Union projects. If no information is entered, you will not be presented the information for qualifying projects.
Non-Union is not an affiliation and as of now, Union status is not publicly viewable. By default, all projects postings start as Non-Union.
Sell yourself! You have 280 characters to pitch Buyers on hiring you for their next project. Tell them how you can help their brand and what it’s like to work with you.
There is a 280 character limit.
We optimize your profile pages for “On Page SEO” – different formatting affects optimization. It’s best to keep your answers short and to-the-point so that you don’t feel the need for visual formatting. If we give you control of how to format your profile, we sacrifice the optimization of SEO. The core of our Buyer acquisition is based on SEO [Search Engine Optimization].
Put any special training or certifications you have, don’t put any clients here.

We recommend using the Category Name or an adjective and a Category Name. They never appear on the same interface, so it is okay to be redundant. A good example is “Conversational Commercial” instead of just “Commercial.”
We are missing a couple categories that will be added. You can always use the OTHER category if the category you are looking for is not listed.
Buyers want to see just one word describing demos wherever possible – if a buyer is searching for video games, that’s all they will see, because that’s all they want. Buyers don’t know to search Animation/Games for example. You are welcome to upload that demo and tag each upload how you need, but remember, the less demos the more successful your searching and inviting will be.
Yes, this functionality is coming soon!
The best way to contact us for help as a Talent member is to use our online chat system or email: [email protected], which leaves the phones more free for Buyers who need assistance with their projects. We are here to assist Monday through Saturday from 7am to 7pm PT.
