A ‘Cup’ of coffee with a Key Opinion Leader

Good Day.
Something weird happened just lately and I just wanted to share something from my heart.
When we KOLs (Key Opinion Leaders) are asked to support agencies for WOM of their client’s projects free of cost and as a goodwill gesture, we also expect them to offer decent compensation in return if not money which we can charge as fee.
And when we do not ask for a fee and are told to be compensated via giveaways sent by clients for us – we expect agencies to be honest and give us what we should be rewarded with instead of sending us items like these.

Thanks for this Mug and Pen that I might never use.

PS : Show some respect to KOLs, your agency makes money because of us.

    Am glad someone brought this up. Totally with you on this. A positive impression can’t be bought, only earned. Only if brands & agencies could get that simple fact.

    I totally agree. In fact, I have stopped taking assignments like these where they treat you weirdly and are not even decent enough to give something back in compensation (not necessarily in monetary terms). Stupid people, i swear!
