Working with a brand can be an amazing experience

There's nothing like doing what you love & getting paid for it. Better yet, theres noting like using products that you truly love & believe in + getting paid for it. Especially when the deal goes smoothly. Unfortunately, that's not always the case.

That's where the creators guide to contracts comes in.


Charge what your content is worth. 


Understand your contracts with ease. 


Flawlessly negotiate rates & contract terms.

There's just one problem...

You have no idea what you're doing, this is all so new to you or you've been burned in the past...

  You have no idea what your rates should be it's so easy to price out your hair services, but this is different, you were gonna make this content anyways.

  Contract terms look like a foreign language and your eyes literally glaze over when you start reading contracts. Before you know it, you've signed something without fully understanding it.

  Negotiating anything is terrifying what if the brand says no? What if they laugh at you? What if you lose the opportunity by asking for too much?

  You've been burned by a brand in the past & really are not interested in reliving that nightmare again.

  You aren't sure of the right questions to ask or what to say because you're new to this. But you want to make sure you're covering all your bases.

Here's the truth:

It doesn't have to be this way

When I was coming up on social media & started working with brands, it was still so new. There was no one that came before me that was willing to share their experience, no one was willing to share the "scary stuff". But that's what I'm here to do for you. I want to share with you all the DO's & DON'T's of working with brands & the 🚩to look out for.

Lesson 5

Questions you should be asking

Before you agree to a brand trip, or a partnership blindly there's information that you'll need to be able to make an informed decision. These lists of questions range from questions about brand trips to questions to ask BEFORE sending over your rates.


Audio Files

Just about every section includes audio files & downloadable PDFs. There's also links to google docs where it's easy to copy & paste your scripts right into your email. You will have lifetime access to this course but, I do recommend making duplicates just in case!

I need this Guide


Hey, I'm Cryistal Chaos

& I want to share a story with you


I'll never forget my first major brand partnership that I negotiated on my own. The contract seemed never ending, but my excitement got the best of me & the only thing I asked to be removed were the ownership rights. I didn't understand anything else, so I didn't bother with it.

Long story short, I had to cut $6k out of my invoice due my own lack of understanding, lack of proper questions & really just general lack of knowledge. My goal with this guide, is to keep that from happening to you. To give you as much information as possible so that you can enter into partnership negotiations with confidence & not be afraid to go after what you want. 

But it wasn't always this way...

After that I started heavily researching any brand contract that came my way. I learned the terms, I stood my ground when it came to my rates,I wasn't afraid to ask questions or even demand more detailed responses. I also started turning down deals with brands that just didn't align with me. 

In the long run I had less stress because I wasn't being asked to do work I wasn't getting paid for last minute. I vetted all the brands I worked with well enough to know exactly what I was getting myself into.
