Maybe. Or, you could turn down Mason's offer, and instead present yourself as a person of integrity -- one who viewers and other builders can trust, leading to more opportunities with the best companies.For example:
Let's say Mason paid me to make a video about one of his pedals so he could use it as part of Vertex's marketing. He still has other pedals and products out there that he wants to advertise. If I say nice things about him and his products in my personal videos, it's that much more likely I'll get his repeat business. I'll also be seen as a friendly and reliable outlet to other manufacturers. I may not get a big engagement from the likes of BOSS but with enough contacts at smaller companies it all starts to add up.
