Are you a mid-level freelance or staff/agency creative ready to push your career into PRO territory?
This bold & lively lunch-and-learn event for working creatives will give you practical, no-kid-gloves tools and advice to take back to your workstation NOW to start pushing your career to the next level. Veteran creatives Alexa Verardo (designer & illustrator) and Tee Iseminger (copywriter & creative director) will be your hosts, and each month we'll cover topics like pro-level pricing, finding—and communicating—your unique value, organic pitching, leveling-up into leadership, indispensable work tools, and more.
This month's Level-Up: "How to price like the wheel, not the spoke.”
This workshop is designed for freelancers stuck in the pattern of lowballing bids, accepting low-budget projects, haranguing over hours, and generally people-pleasing in your proposals, and for staffers/agency creatives ready to negotiate a leveled-up role and salary that positions you as the creative partner you’re ready to be.
Pricing beyond hourly rates
What your rates or stated minimum salary tells clients about how to use you
How to avoid subconsciously undermining your value
Strategies for setting a rate or salary that reflects the end of this phase of your career and the beginning of the next
Why higher quotes can get your more (and better) clients
How to project a value that matches your new higher rates/salary requirements
We'll provide lunch (vegan and gluten-free options available), just bring a notebook and pen and your ambition to level-up in your creative career. Join us!
The AIGA Level-Up Lunch Series happens every 4th Thursday, 11:45a-12:30p at Freerange Central. $10 members, $15 non-members.
