Organization Is A Huge Skill For Internet Users


Bookmark and ShareI was reminded recently cleaning up some social media channels how important organization is.  No matter how great a presentation of a site, or page is, if it is not entirely organized users ultimately will move on to preserve their time in effect.  That brings me to the site that I was thinking about at the moment which is Modelmayhem.com.  Modelmayhem and other similar social, and self promotional sites are often extremely challenging.  People have to set themselves apart from the crowd.  This is tough because many people copy each others styles.  With the Internet a clothing trend can go around the world instantly.  Things that are popular in Los Angeles are popular in Beijing China at the exact same moment.  As a model in one country it is hard aside from a really custom set and clothing style to break away.  Even harder is the level of talent that seems to be on the rise.  The obstacle is very similar to how eBay power sellers have had to evolve such a high level of branding and customer service that is beyond what many would expect from actual companies.  Many people have traditionally wanted to 'network' or shove their ideas on other people.  If their work and portfolio on model mayhem for example is not in order they can have problems.  The first for example would be a photographer with many models.  Too few pictures will not represent the depth of the abilities of the photographer.  Too many and people get lost.  Obviously a master portfolio open to the public is an excellent way to give back to the digital commons but on the front page of model mayhem business contact front  there must be order in the photos so someone could navigate and understand where the photographer is coming from quickly.  People make their move and decide online in the matter of a moment.  In cyberspace we only have a few seconds to purvey our points.
Models face similar challenges, except they are trying to achieve depth from a single person.  This can be a challenge to communicate the scope of work that a model does.  Whether one should just list the resume by number or give some samples that is up to the individual, but it can help to have those high impact masterclass pictures forward.   Also people struggle with descriptions and often are not entirely accurate which may turn off a high end photographer unless the model has some cred and notoriety in their world.  It can be tough to be the perfect individual.   Organization is key to rehash probably the most important social media related skill that few really think about.
