Putting Value in Yourself

Putting Value in Yourself

Okay. So, I had a conversation this morning that I did not like and I wish I could tell you this was the first time I’ve had this conversation and I wish I could tell you it was going to be the last but it’s not. So I need to address it here. Artists and freelancers, I need you to start putting value in your time. We work with a lot of artists and freelancers here. We offer a lot of different services from video production to testimonial video production, to animation, to drone photography, to geo-fencing, to competitor targeting, to the list goes on. And some of what we do in house and some of it we use freelancers for. They get it done right.

And the thing that I keep seeing over and over again is people refusing to put value in their time and weirdly enough it’s mainly the artists. The SEO people know how to put value in their time but the artists don’t. And part of it’s the money, $10,000 is a lot of money to a person but I need you to understand that $10,000 is not a lot of money to a midsize corporation. They’re not going to throw it out the window but as long as you offer them consummate value for that money they’re happy to pay you.

And the other part is not the money, the wishy washy attitude, the reason why there are starving artists is because they refuse to put value in their time because they refuse to put value in their selves. And let me be the one to tell you, let me be the one to finally wake you up and tell you that what you do has value. You spend a lot of time, effort, and energy building those talents and by the way you’re good at it. And if you refuse to put value in what you do no one else ever will. So, get over yourself be a professional. So, thanks to Peggy Johnson for being double super awesome. And if you’ve got questions, email me at andy@getjigsaw.com.
