I hate money issues. That's why I prefer 50/50 and preferably full payment in advance. I just want to get out of it the sooner as possible. But some people think we are trying to scam clients by that. No... we are not. We are just trying to pay bills and buy food and have a normal life like anybody else. Nothing fancy. Just normal.
So when we artists give you a rate and a value. Please. PLEASE don't be surprised and say stuff like "Oh my! that's a lot of money, I thought you charged cheaper" "this is so expensive" and shit like that. NO. That's an insult. Because I'm not trying to get rich here. I'm trying to get the enough to keep on doing what you need.
Other good manners are:
- Don't think you're doing us a favor: There are no favors here. It's business. Fair trade. Period. We can get to be friends. But that's also not necessary.
- Briefing: Say exactly what you need. And if you got any specifics. Tell them. We don't read minds. Hundred p
