Collective

What is the Fresh Voice Media (FVM) Collective?

The FVM Collective is a network of talented service providers and freelancers who, under the FVM brand umbrella, indirectly provide their services to FVM clients.

FVM takes care of the marketing, client communications, contracts and administrative work. FVM Collective members get to focus on what they are best at – their specialized art or service.

Why Join?

Benefits to FVM Collective members:

  • FVM attracts, secures and directs paid work to you
  • FVM takes care of the marketing, client communications, contracts and administrative work
  • FVM markets your services under the FVM brand
  • You save time by communicating directly with FVM instead of multiple clients
  • You invoice FVM for services instead of multiple clients
  • You are the primary service provider to FVM. For example, FVM would only have one official graphic designer, etc. unless there was an influx of work or each graphic designer offered different services/styles. You are still free to offer your services directly to your own clients.
  • Flexible work

How are FVM Collective members paid?

FVM clients are charged your regular hourly or service rate (plus HST), invoiced directly by FVM. Once the client pays FVM (net 15-30 days), you receive full payment, minus 15 percent which is the FVM Collective service fee.

How are FVM Collective members promoted?

FVM is excited to expand its brand online and beyond. FVM will not only be promoting the work you’ve done as an FVM Collective member, but will be creating content through messaging, photography and videography.

For example, FVM plans to produce behind-the-scenes, interview-style videos of each FVM Collective member. This content will be shared through FVM marketing platforms, but will also be available for you to share on your own marketing platforms.

 

How does copyright work?

As a member of the FVM Collective, final copyright of your work is granted to the client. However, FVM will outline in client contracts that FVM and FVM Collective members have the permission to share final work on FVM and FVM Collective member marketing platforms.
