TAL­ENT TURN-OFFS

CALL­ING YOUR­SELF AN IN­FLU­ENCER

“Ditto en­tre­pre­neur. It makes me cringe,” says Danny Lowney. In­stead, just say some­thing funny about your­self.

OF­FEN­SIVE TWEETS

“Peo­ple need to be brand friendly,” says Lucy Loveridge. We’ve all seen how dodgy jokes and com­ments can come back to haunt you.

SNAPCHAT FILTERS

“It’s such a no go,” says Marc French. Model and TV scouts want to see you, not a load of an­i­mated but­ter­flies fly­ing around your face.

PESTERING AGEN­CIES

“Every minute you spend reach­ing out to a man­ager and say­ing ‘Can you sign me?’ would be bet­ter off spent on your work,” says Lowney.

SELF-PRO­MO­TION

“I don’t like it when a so­cial me­dia plat­form is just a sales plat­form for other ven­tures,” says Lowney. Have some­thing to say, not some­thing to sell.
