Phil I’m sure that it will be selling. Things from custom jobs performs better from my experience. In this type of jobs I think that way. If my job can be usual stock file then I work as usual without any fee. For anything else above it (special version, exclusivity, not stocky specific music) ask for prepaid.

Sorry to hear that Phil :( But I’m sure his production wasn’t nearly as good as yours. Everyone I’ve “met” on AJ has been great so far. I can only hope I don’t come in contact with people like that. Best of luck Phil, bounce back!

PhilLarson –you don’t start to work for anything or anyone here on the freelance world before you get first down payment no matter what author it is ,even if Angelina Jolie will offered you free sex to do custom audio work you need to be strong say no and still ask for down payment if you want to do custom audio work for many years.
