I came across this article on Preston Bailey's blog today and thought it was interesting. Enjoy!
40/60 baby! 40/60!!!
Very good article--
I had to laugh a little because when I'm reviewing the contract with the client and get to the part about payment 2 weeks in advance, I always tell them "Because we don't bake unless we're paid to!" EVERY SINGLE CLIENT says "Well, duh"
thanks, interesting that 50/50 or 60/40 is the standard. I agree with Jamie, 40/60
Love this quote: Im not chasing you down for a dang thing if you see me and my team at an event, trust & believe weve been PAID.
She took the words right outta my mouth
Not that I want anyone else to deal with nutty clients, but it does make you feel a little better when you're reminded that cakers aren't the only ones people try to pull the "My event will give you so much 'free' advertising" stuff on
