“We Can't Pay Your Rate BUT We Promise More Work” 🤥

#shorts #client #roleplay

CLIENT: If you help us this time perhaps we can have more business for you later if you give us a better price than what you’re asking now. How does that sound?

FREELANCER: It sounds horrible! How many times as a vendor when you sell something to one of your clients where somebody says I’ll give you half of what you’re worth and if I like it i’ll come back and give you something more would you do that deal?

CLIENT: No it doesn’t sound good but we’re an established business and we we’re always working with graphic designers.

FREELANCER: I sure hope so.Most of my clients are repeat customers of mine because I give them what they need and i like that you’re an established business so you know better than I do what the value of the work is and what happens when we don’t deliver. what’s the maximum amount of money that you’re willing to spend on this?

CLIENT: $500-600

FREELANCER: I appreciate you accommodating me so if we did something for say $750 would you be okay with that?

CLIENT: We’ll think about it.

FREELANCER: Okay let me know I’m making this concession because I see that you want to work with me and I appreciate it for this time I’m willing to do it for $750 but I also want to just be very clear that should you want to work with me in the future I have to charge you where I normally charge which is somewhere between a thousand to two thousand dollars. Okay?

CLIENT: Okay Thanks a lot!
