Who will raise their rates after winning a Grammy?

Gotta be a commensurate rise in fees too, however.

Wider talent pool / client pool--I'd say most award winners find that that is a nice consequence of a higher profile.
Do I ?

Maybe it's your locale that does not value the award??

But to US public and to musicians in my cadre, and others that might hire you, winning a Grammy is a badge of honor that says you're the best. And the best get to charge more.

It is extremely difficult to win.

You guys write to minimize the winner. Why do you do that? You are so out of it!

It needs to be monetized or what good is it?
I agree with you. The award means something.

The best argument against raising your rates after winning, is that you have already been working at this level presumably (likely for years). Thus your rates should already be at (or near to) "grammy award winning rates"??

And thus if you feel a need to raise your rates after winning a grammy, then perhaps your rates were not high enough beforehand?

Not sure I agree with that logic, but I can see how it could be argued at least

Oh, I don't know. Gordon Gekko was charming.
