Do you have what it takes to be a Brand Rep and Influencer?
In addition to launching the Little Kids Business online Marketplace in March 2018, we realised that some of the 110+ Brands who sell directly through our Marketplace were in need of Brands Reps. This may assist the Brand to gain lifestyle photos of their product in use. In order to make more sales, it is important to showcase a product with Marketplace white background photos as well as quality lifestyle photos showcasing their product in use.
Product images not only testify to the quality of the product but they also serve as windows into the eCommerce store, creating transparency and trust, for this reason, it is believed that 93% of customers buying decision is made based on photography alone.
The Brands Reps Directory will provide Brands with an easy to follow Look Book of potential Brands Reps for their Brands. They can read information about the Brand Rep and decide if they would be a good fit together.

What is a Brand Ambassador?
A Brand ambassador is someone who receives DISCOUNTED products, and in return will share photos interacting with the product. For example, a clothing Brand might sell this person clothes at a discounted rate and in return, they publish photos of themselves of themselves in these clothes and tag the Brand. These people usually have a moderate amount of Instagram followers and promote the Brand on their photos through hashtags. This will naturally, help attract more followers on the company’s own profile, and they then convert those people to customers.
What is a Brand Rep?
Brand reps (representatives) are people that may receive FREE products in exchange for them taking pictures and posting them on their Instagram account. These people have many Instagram followers and promote their photos through hashtags. Naturally, this kind of Brand advocacy helps attract more followers on the company’s own profile, and they then convert those people to customers.
What do Brands look for?
Choosing the perfect Brands Rep is incredibly important for a Brand as everything in an image—quality, subject matter, colour theme and saturation—should speak in a uniform voice that resonates with the Brands target audience.
- Bright, clear photos, that suit their style are a must.
- A visually appealing Instagram feed with good use of hashtags, and followers that are interacting with the rep is preferred as Brand Reos often act as Influencers.

We can help you be found however we are not a Modelling Agency
Little Kids Business is a Band Reps Directory which acts as a point of introduction between Brands Reps and Kids Brands. We are unable to set up Modelling jobs between Brands and Reps therefor it is up to the Brand to contact the Rep directly. In order to make sure that there is a clear understanding between the Brand/ Brand Rep, we encourage you to enter into a legally binding contract with the Brand/ Brand Rep.
Can anyone apply?
Thank you for understanding that it is at the discretion of Little Kids Business to accept your application. Little Kids Business has a strict curation policy with regards to all photos displayed on the Little Kids Business Marketplace and Directory.
If you have submitted photos that are not clear and in good light, we will decline your application and refund you any money paid.
We do not accept images of children that are
- Not clothed, baring any nudity.
- Displayed in a way that would enable them to be easily identified – for example, in a school uniform, directly outside their house with a number or street sign showing, or showing their full name.
By applying to the Little Kids Business Brand Reps Directory you must be the Childs parental/guardian and give consent via a tick box.
Please note: if we decline your application we ask that you politely accept our decision. You are welcome to apply again at a later date. Any feedback given will not pertain to the physical appearance of your child, merely the quality or style of the photography or if you have under 500 Instagram Followers.
Why do I need to have a Public Instagram account?
You must have a Public Instagram account/profile with the photos which you wish to publish on the Little Kids Business Directory currently available to be seen by the public on your Instagram account/profile. This is to provide the Brands looking for Brand Reps the opportunity to see if your photography style suits their Brand. This will also allow them the opportunity to see many likes and comments you receive on your Instagram posts, while also allowing them to easily see the number of followers that you have. We ask that youonly share with Little Kids Business, photos which you have posted on your own public Instagram profile /account. Little Kids Business will double check that all photos are published on Instagram before we publish them.
Why do I need to have a Public Instagram account with 500 followers or more?
As Brand Reps also often act as an influencer for the Brands they represent, it is important that you have 1000 people or more interested in your Instagram content.
How much will our listings cost the Brand Rep?
Don’t pay over $500, to list with a modelling agency. We feel it’s very important to keep the listing fee low so that as a parent you can all easily afford to list your child/children with us for Brands to discover.
- The cost to list as a Brand Rep is $49 per listing/ per year.(unless on sale) As an example, you may choose to list in 3 categories Boy, Girl and Sibling. This will cost 3 x 49 = $147.00. As children age, it is very important to update your listing annually with new photography and updated information including age. Even things such as eye and hair colour can change in a year so we will ask you to review all details.
How much will it cost the Brand to search our database?
- To search through our curated database is absolutely FREE.
