What they're saying about the course!
Yet another GREAT course! One of the key takeaways from this that I can personally attest to is that silence can go a long way when in the stage of negotiating with brands. I had a brand that offered me X amount of money and I said I would only do the video for 3.5X that. I didn't respond for about 3-4 days to their latest email and then FINALLY they compromised and decided to go with my offer. Also later on, the video ended up going VIRAL and working great for them as well (which I will be using as a case study/social media report soon! - Carlynn @espdaniella

The Understand Negotiations & Contracts Course was extremely helpful and informational. Before this course, I had no idea how to approach let alone read and comprehend a contact. I love how each term had a definition that made it easy to understand once explained. It was also helpful that there were examples to go along with the terms and how they would be used in a contract.- Sydney @sydneymcshan
As a content creator and freelancer, this course has been incredibly useful. I have some experience with contracts and negotiations but this has been a great resource, it gave me the right information to negotiate better and to understand the implications of a contract. The course is just perfect for any influencers, content creators or freelancers. - Claudia @wherewindstakeme
