1. "Write us a nonfiction/brochure/direct feedback box on spec, and if we use it we'll pay you."
This mechanism they'll exchange a heading or two, use it - and not transmit you just about it! Some clients will even variety few secondary revisions in the schoolbook and claim that it's a entirely new package! It doesn't fall out repeatedly...but it happens.

Think double in the past jumping in this millpond.
5. "I keep up a correspondence slaughterer replicate myself, but now I don't have the case. What can you do for me?"
