I'm sure a lot of you will relate to this video. ;-)

Sirenetta Leoni's curator insight, May 24, 1:48 PM

Very funny, only slightly exaggerated, but sadly not all that far off the mark. When put into different context, we can see how absurd and insulting some "proposals" from clients really are. No one who understands the real value of what they do would agree to do a job on "spec," or at a huge discount now with the promise that it will be made up to them on some undefined "future" job.

 

Unfortunately, as we all know this kind of bargaining goes on daily, and actors, voice actors or any artists or other freelancers who are party to this have no right to complain when the client offers them even less the next time or gives the job to someone else who is willing to work even more cheaply.

@Sirenetta Leoni you are welcome! I agree that it is slightly exaggerated, but I come across it on a daily basis with my job.

Buffer: A model of transparency

Buffer: A model of transparency | The Social Media Slant Magazine | Scoop.it

In October 2013, when Buffer was hacked, the team behind the scheduling tool for Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn did something that many considered awesome.

Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's curator insight, February 15, 2:08 AM


I came across this interview with Leo Widrich and Joel Gascoigne, the co-founders of  Buffer, today, and had to share it. To me, Buffer is a role model in the transparency arena. 

That also explains why the company has enjoyed so much success these last few months. 

The interview  is 8-minute long, but well worth a watch.

Jenna Diaz-Gonzalez's curator insight, July 8, 4:53 PM

Transparency is one of Buffer’s core values. The company feels that by being transparent, it’s a mutual benefit to itself and consumers. After being hacked, Buffer used its transparency to mitigate concerns from consumers, thereby avoiding animosity and gaining loyalty.
