If you are already affiliated with an agency, be sure to mention that. Ideally, add a link to the agency's website.
When you choose photos to put on the site, be selective. If you've done a professional shoot, don't include the contact sheets -- just the best pictures.
If you have a separate section for the polaroids, that's useful too.
Only post what agencies want to see. If your body isn't in the condition you want it to be, don't contact agencies until it is.
Often models build small websites, ask agencies to review it, then continue to pester the agencies every time they update their site. Agencies won't look at someone who had wasted their time in the past.
Once your website is built and you're ready to contact agencies, remember to be professional in your correspondance.
The subject line of your e-mail should be something like "New Face," or "Seeking Representation." It should not say "The Next Supermodel," or "Your Newest Star."
