If the Client Sends You Business
The Client Doesn't Send You Business
The client does actually get you exposure! Wow! Everybody wins!
The client pays you the difference immediately.
The Client Pays
The promised exposure never comes. The client still has the work that you did for them, and that's not fair.
“We can't afford to pay you anything, but it will get you great exposure and look amazing in your portfolio!"

Why Get The Work for Fame Contract?
It happens all the time. A new client comes to you and says that they can't pay for your design services, but that if you work for them you will get great exposure.
"Everyone will see the work that you did and want to hire you!"
Maybe, maybe not, but a promise is a promise and a contract is a contract. That's why this contract will put those promises in writing.
If the client gets you the work that he or she promised to get you, you could get new clients and the client gets great work for free.
If the client doesn't get you the work that he or she promised to get you, you could make them pay.
Get the exposure or get the money.
