  • Working with Corporations

    Creative Pro just put out an article which really gives good advice for freelancers or small companies working with large Corporations. Clients like this are my mainstay... I certainly see the value of these tips. You might too.

      Yes good article. The thing I struggle with is showing how my work adds value and will make money or business for my client. I get tunnel vision and think that the benefit is what they can pay me. I feel like I want to make as much as possible and then question if I am being greedy. "The value of hiring me is that I get needed money I am desperate for" is not the appropiate answer. How do you show value? I don't have info of how my work made someone money. That is a good suggestion I need to research so that I can show value and benefit. Working with the decision maker is always the best advice with any freelance job.

      Thanks Viki
      I don't make mistakes. I thought I did once but I was wrong.

        Well, who knows. They might have their reasons that would make sense if we knew them.

        You're right, though, it's their money and if that's what they insist they want -- despite your best...

        I'm grateful for the time both you spent to inform me and respect your expertise. Didn't mean to sound like I was disregarding what you shared. Just figure if it's not going to make much of a difference...

        Hmmm, good question. Probably not. Most generally recognized professions seem to have licensing requirements, though, so I guess my comments stem from designers being somehow excluded and the profession...

        No one gave me a solution seems like either way I would get similar results. I suggested the clients use the file we already have in hand and they insisted they wanted vector. I'm open to having the imaged...

        Ha! I sure wouldn't try it with somebody's face.

        I just happen to have the artwork for what I was talking about. It was part of a large outdoor display at a marina advising boaters about...
