Your bid should reflect the complexity of the deliverables listed in the brief. A video that includes text overlay & music is going to be priced differently than a product flatlay. Additionally, if you are posting a photo to 1 million followers vs. 1,000 followers the additional impressions will raise the price of the post.
On some gigs, you may see pricing information. Here’s what you may see:
- A suggested bid price: the brand has a specific bid price in mind for you! You’re free to name your own price when applying, but to increase your chances of selection, it’s best to keep your bid within the suggested bid.
- A fixed compensation rate: the brand has a set bid price and you’re unable to name your own price for this campaign. By applying to that campaign, you’re agreeing to the set price.
Make sure you’re willing to complete all of the deliverables in the brief at the set price you’re agreeing to. This is your work, and we want you to walk away equally satisfied with the partnership. Once you agree to the set price, you are not able to negotiate or change your bid.
