Nice framing on the, um, pens. And it sounded like someone was making breakfast just off-camera. They chose to do a bad zoom instead of taking the time to cut to a decent close-up. And the read was weak. Other than that, the mug guy must be really happy with the quality he's getting for his money.

I would say don't race yourself to the bottom on rates. What you've proposed seems fair. That he's asking you to come down more means he's interested already. Play poker. Stay confident: "it costs what it costs". Really, you don't want to do these any cheaper, all that will do is eat up time you could spend on a more productive client, and damage your reputation for a quality work product.

I agree with the concept of him buying a day's worth of production for a fixed amount, and seeing how many GOOD spots you can get out of that one day, as a benchmark for the future relationship. He's nuts to turn that down, as when he averages the number of completed spots across the amount spent, it will have a unit cost about as much as one of the pens. Moreover, keeping the assignments to single days means you can bill more often and not be forced to wait forever to get paid. You don't move ahead until the single day has been paid for. You are a businesswoman.
