Negotiating Basics

Have you ever been in the negotiation process with a client, but you do not know where to start? πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Learning as much as possible about a potential client before negotiating is very important, plus it will make things a whole lot easier. Prior to any negotiation, you should do some research about basic information regarding the company:

πŸ“ Client basic information (company name, address, website)

πŸ“ Primary contact information (name, phone number, email address)

πŸ“ Project description (Details regarding the project that is being negotiated)

πŸ“ Services that the client needs (Make a thorough study of the brand and list down which creative services they could need, because it could potentially turn into an opportunity to promote more of your services)

πŸ“ Existing branding (products, media, collateral pieces)

πŸ“ Deadlines (How much time you need to complete the projects)

πŸ“ Projected expenses (How much will it cost? Is it a flat rate? How many hours?)

Remember to always ask questions! I would also love to hear your opinion πŸ™†πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Let me know if I can help you out with further questions, or if you would like to hear more about this subject. You can reach me out via DM or email me at πŸ€“
