Generation vs Product
My DS is with Generation and on Website. I was asked if I wanted him included on website. We agreeded and paid the ONE Time Fee and have been ACTIVE and CURRENT since then. Generation updates his area with his latest pictures, stats and work as I send it in to them. The website is a great Marketing tool and I am
to have my DS on it and a part of Generation.

We were with Willy and went to Generation due to a very late response on something we felt should have been handled more expeditiously. My son has done a lot of work with Generation - my daughter (pretty much due to size - less right now - but did a nice amount with Willy ) he has been asked to be on their site - I just felt burned by paying for 3 kids on Willy's site and I personally think it if would bring them more money (and the kid more bookings) than it is mutually beneficial to put the kids up on the site. Paying for it seems silly to me. We truly pay enough in gas, parking and time. It just a bottom line builder for the agency. They still send him out like mad and he still books - and we have a good relationship.

To clarify.. NOT That the Relationship or frequency of Booking has anything to do with being on the website. I just feel in the grand scheme of tho Fa why not offer Ur Child the most Visablility possible. The fee is used for setup and maintenance of Ur child's area, and as stated can be and usually is taken right from Ur child's wages. So truly no out of pocket. To each is own, whatever works for your child and family. BUT Myself and My DS, enjoy being a part of Generation... And NOPE Im Surely not a Generation " Plant" or "Spy".. Lol. As Much as Patti, Gretchen WORK for The Gen kids.. I seriously Doubt them to have to time for such.

First time reading all this and ever writing on this site but I feel I have to clarify
A few things. My son has been with Generation for a year now. He hasn't been sent out a lot but when he does get sent to a Gosee he usually books. They take the time to pick a good fit for him so we are not wasting our time and money. They def do not brag on fb. They don't post half the jobs they actually book. My son is very artsy and was picked on in school for not being the "athletic kid". Patti and Generation team really have given him the opportunity to build his self confidence. I know that might sound silly but they care about all the kids that they represent. It's a hard business which is why I waited till my son was 6 to start him out but if I knew how great patti was I would have started much earlier. Anyways for people who want a agency that has a heart Generation is a great option. Btw my son book pretty big jobs like Oscar fs armani saks and so on. Wanted to just add that just so u can have a few great examples of jobs they book and guess what they never bragged abt it on fb. That's just how Patti rolls lol. Good luck

One more thing they never once mentioned adding my son on the website I actually heard about it from another mom and requested that they add him. He book way before being added to the site. Ok that's all

I Have to agree,I have had such a great experience with Generation in such a short time. I really feel like she cares about my kids and that I'm not just another Gen Parent. I don't know about the other agency, but I really, really love being apart of Generation. My kids have had a great time and we have only been with them for a few months!
