Free Exposure – Yeah Right

More following my prior posts about working for free etc. This is an e-mail exchange from yesterday. Another company trying to get free work by offering free exposure. Free exposure at best is worthless but from a start up company that has no exposure, free exposure is worth even less. Obviously the person just does not get it. And sadly they will sucker some people in who are just hoping to find some way of getting ahead and trying to be hopeful about it. I have left out the person’s name and the name of the company so as to not embarrass them, at least for the moment. Please read all of it. Enjoy the exchange and if I can answer any questions just let me know at

    • Thank You! I look forward to sharing more of these. Also would be great if we can pass them along to get people in the circle and grow the movement against this type of stuff.

        Absolutely. Sharing on FB. People can talk all day long about this but your real world example shows just how the flawed the mindset of “For the Exposure” really is.
