 thebookr strives to provide all the tools and information a client needs to arrange castings and bookings easily and instantly. Clients can see talents’ availability calendars, rates, recent polaroids, videos and snapshots right on their profile page and book them directly online. The job board features allows client members to share portfolios of their picks to nonmembers for easy online review. By putting the casting and booking process online, thebookr allows full transparency in communication and booking between clients and talent. Clients can conduct their own talent search, compare them and send lightboxes to colleagues instantly.  They have direct access to all talent information when they need it. Every talent and client must apply to be a member. We look for models who have a sellable look and talent who have a working book. And just as importantly, we invite talent who have the right attitude, are professional and enjoy managing their own careers.

talkTECH Communications is a group of smart, savvy, business-minded individuals who have taken the downfall of big business and the lessons of “Recession 2.0″ to heart and created a company to serve the start-up community and business middle-class: a class that invariably constitutes the backbone of our economy, and whose innovations will lead us into the mobile future. We also understand the four basic laws of supply and demand and how those pesky, little laws impact your business.

Our goal is to use the discipline of communications as it applies to your business, while leveraging innovative technologies to develop a creative strategy for distributing your news and information; and then giving you data and statistics that will tell you exactly how our efforts translate into real-time, relevant, meaningful tools for growing your brand.

Thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of Fashion+TECHSF Seminar. We didn’t know quite what to expect and not being from the “fashion world” we thought we might be out of place. We couldn’t have been more wrong! Owen Geronimo and everyone involved created a space for us to fit right into. Not only were we well received but the ideas, concepts and solutions discussed were fresh new takes on issues that pertain directly to the challenges that our business is dealing with as well.Thanks again. ~ Troy Rutt @ True Power Inc
