If you’re a creative person, you might have received an offer to be paid in “exposure.”
No, it’s not a new cryptocurrency, but rather an offer to not pay you anything for your work because your work will function as an advertisement to others who will then pay you for your work.
If that sounds like complete nonsense, there’s a good reason for that.
A client offering to pay you in “exposure” is not a professional and does not value your skillset. It is also highly likely that any “exposure” they offer is worthless.
When you agree to be in “exposure,” you communicate that you are also an amateur.
Professionals get paid to do the work.
