Talk:Promotional model

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

It is extraordinarily inappropriate in every way for Promotional Model to be encompassed in the Parent category of Motorsports.[edit]

Promotional models may promote a variety of products, services, and events.

Promotional models market various personal hygeine products, software, hardware, furniture, hair makeup and other beauty products, fragrances, internet and television service, brands of water, beer, wine, liquor, energy drinks, loans, toys, fashion and accessories, home remodeling, IT services, bridal products, entertainment events, health club memberships, numerous magazine and newspaper publications, real estate service, credit cards, spa resort or vacation packages, various food, candy, and snack products, mortgages, bars and nightclubs, websites, labor services, transportation services, banks, retail store chains, tax services, tobacco products, band and concert performances, baby products, home products, diet and fitness products and services, prescription and non-prescription drugs, pet products, automobiles, books, movies, insurance and more.

Less than 0.000001% ( less than one millionth of one percent ) of promotional models promote motor sports. There is a young man on wikipedia (you know who you are) who enjoys video game conferences and japanese motor sports so much that he would like the very definition of promotional model to be tightly tied to them, because in his mind, this is what a promotional model is. While race queens may rule his world, wikipedia is meant to be an objective source of information, defining the scope, and main or primary meaning of a term. If you actually fathom how promotional models are used by companies every day all over the world to acheive their marketing objectives for the many products and services that exist, it is evident that the definition and supporting photos in the 'Promotional Model' Wikipedia entry should best reflect what promotional models actually are and do and should not be skewed by any one person's enthusiasm for a particular hobby or the models that promote it. Race Queens is an extremely miniscule category of promotional models, and are unrepresentative of most promotional models, which, in the course of their work, actually convince consumers to purchase a product or service for sale, demonstrate a product, or create a brand identity. 141.157.242.184 07:47, 9 April 2007 (UTC)




I don't know whose entry this is below, but it is poorly expressed, not descriptive, and has clear advertisment content inappropriate for wikipedia : ENTRY


Being a promotional model means that you are a brand ambassador for a certain company. ... These people who consider themselves to be promotional models, work diligently and responsibly. ... They are punctual, and well respected in the promotional modeling industry. ... One of the largest promotional agencies currently is Protege Promotions. They specialize in hiring promotional models for different companys through out the U.S. ... unlike other modeling agencies, Protege Promotions charges no agency fees.


Sorry, but that looks a lot like advertising for the services of this particular agency, and as such should not be in the Wikipedia.
