Do you struggle to get paid what you're worth for brand partnerships? Do you feel like you're always being undervalued by brands, or even undervaluing yourself? Do you have a hard time charging money for your work when it seems like the world is telling you that ethical influencers should work for free?
That all stops now. In the Ethical Writers & Creatives' latest workshop, Benita Robledo, ethical fashion activist and speaker and the founder of Compassion Fashion and the popular eponymous Instagram account, will show you how to price your work fairly, and negotiate with brands in order to achieve your financial dreams. Benita, whose passion is arming you with all the info you need to go out and create a more compassionate closet (and lifestyle) for yourself, has negotiated strong deals of up to $5,000 with established multi-national brands as well as new start-ups, including Samsonite, tech innovator Bolt Threads, and the menswear-inspired womenswear brand Tradlands. She’s cracked the code on how to ensure she’s paid a fair wage while creating additional income streams for herself and her photographer through image licensing. And she's done all this while staying true to her core ethics.
In this workshop, Benita will cover:
Why you need to stop working for free
Why you’re worth more than you think you are
How to price your work
How to stand firm during negotiations without alienating prospective clients
How image licensing works and what to charge
Contract negotiations How to deal with brands who say they don't have a budget
