Taking on a spec piece can be really troubling. It can also be rewarding. I find it really awkward. I’ve only had a few decent experiences with spec ads that have led to more work or a better relationship. I’m not going to tell you whether to accept them or to not, but I will give you a few experiences I’ve passed through since graduating college.
