“Hi Shreya, I am the PR strategist of a million-dollar company. Our Founder wants to build his influence and reach.”
Awesome! Based on your Founder’s profile review, here’s my proposal. Fees: ₹₹₹
“Oh, you charge for this? No, our company works only on collabs.”
What do you mean by a collab?
“We have a lot of reach on YouTube and Facebook. We can help you get more views.”
Okay, how am I supposed to pay my bills in Dublin?
I’m so surprised by million-dollar companies working purely on “collabs.”
Their currency of exchange is ‘reach & more followers’
Thanks, but reach & more followers are vanity metrics.
Reach & more followers aren’t going to pay my bills.
Will you accept payment in vanity metrics over currency?
P.S. I don’t pay good wages because I have a lot of money; I have a lot of money because I pay good wages.
