We all gotta make money! But for some reason, no one ever wants to talk numbers, which keeps us all in the darkπŸ™Š

So in the latest episode of our podcast, we are gonna get into the nitty gritty of how to price your work. We’ll be talking about:

  • Day rates, and when to use them

  • Charging for usage in illustration (How will an image be used? How many copies? For how long?)

  • Five factors to keep in mind when pricing a job (money, exposure, service, personal interest, networking)

  • Tactics for negotiating (you can negotiate for more than just money!)

  • Be sure to figure out your bottom line, and know that it can change based on your overall financial picture

  • The value of agents. A good one can get you work and do all the negotiating for you!

  • Whether you should you ever work for free (ie just for exposure)?
