Jiang Yuning was very gentle and she was fluent in English too. It was impossible for them to refuse to communicate with her.
&x201C;Miss Jiang, our company has been unable to achieve good sales levels even though we have put in many years of hard work and have already penetrated the Asian market for a considerable amount of time. How are you able to turn this around for us? Moreover, in our opinion, the price quoted by your company is a little too high. The price quoted by Miss Zhong&x2019;s side is within our budget and the degree of cooperation that they have agreed to assist us in is to our satisfaction too.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning smiled after listening to his words. After that, she replied, &x201C;Mr. Lyle, the choice of your ambassador should not be determined by the price that you have to pay but instead, it should be determined by the value that the artiste can provide you. Sorry, I do not mean to belittle Miss Zhong, but you have to picture the various billboards being hung around the many different amusement parks in the future. Would you prefer an ambassador with a sweet and pleasant image or a singer with a heavy rock metal image endorsing your brand? I have to admit that Miss Zhong is certainly a great singer, but her rock style is obviously not in line with the requirements of your branding at all.&x201D;
&x201C;I know that your itinerary is very short and packed, and you have to find an ambassador for the Asian region very urgently. However, if you really think that price is really the main concern, then I am sorry to say that it would definitely be very difficult for Fairy Tale to succeed in the Asian market. We can always negotiate and discuss the price, but a suitable ambassador is difficult to come by.&x201D;
&x201C;I believe that you have a very good understanding about the market, Mr. Lyle, and I believe in your judgment too. Moreover, I believe that you might have some misunderstanding as to the degree of cooperation that my company and I would be willing to provide. As long as we are in a mutually agreeable and happy working relationship, I will definitely participate and cooperate in all the promotional activities and events unconditionally.&x201D;
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, Mr. Lyle frowned as he looked at Jiang Yuning.
This was because Zhong Hongyu had indeed smeared Jiang Yuning&x2019;s image in front of him in order to secure this endorsement for herself.
Furthermore, Zhong Hongyu had done it in a very deliberate manner, as well as prepared a lot of defamatory materials against Jiang Yuning to prove her point.
However, after meeting Jiang Yuning personally, Mr. Lyle felt that she was a very open-minded and frank person. Jiang Yuning had not only talked about Zhong Hongyu&x2019;s weakness, but she had also generously admitted the fact that Zhong Hongyu was a famous and good singer.
This Jiang Yuning was completely different from how Zhong Hongyu had portrayed her to be.
&x201C;Moreover, I have already shown you my greatest sincerity. As far as you are concerned, Mr. Lyle, who do you think will garner more interest from the ad sponsors?&x201D;
Zhong Hongyu was a singer and she definitely could not surpass Jiang Yuning&x2019;s appearance and value as an actress.
As a singer, her limitations were far greater in comparison to that of an actress.
&x201C;What other talents do you have to convince us that we will be making the right choice?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning then imitated the style and voice of several anime characters. &x201C;Besides that, I can also save you the cost of having people to do the voiceovers. This will definitely save you a lot of money. If you arrange for a grand signing ceremony for me, I will also prepare a promotional gift for you.&x201D;
No one knew what kind of gift Jiang Yuning would prepare for the ceremony, but just thinking about it was exciting enough for them.
About fifteen minutes later, Jiang Yuning successfully won over the hearts of other party and managed to obtain the endorsement contract with an overwhelming victory. The person in charge of securing the contract arranged for his subordinate to stay behind and prepare the contract for Jiang Yuning immediately.
The young paparazzo was so impressed and fascinated as his idol was really impressive. &x201C;My idol can represent herself as an agent.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help but knock the young paparazzo on his head. &x201C;Don&x2019;t talk so much.&x201D;
&x201C;You cannot let your Sister Vera find out about this, okay? I have already spoken to the people at Fairy Tale and they have promised me to tell Vera that they have changed their minds after further consideration. Therefore, this meeting never happened at all.&x201D;
&x201C;You are really too fond of Sister Vera,&x201D; the young paparazzo said as he pouted.
&x201C;Your Sister Vera finally found someone who loves her. Let&x2019;s allow her to be in love and go on dates instead of disturbing her love life. We need her brain to secrete more dopamine so that she can be a more pleasant and happy person, okay?&x201D;
After the negotiation process and the signing of the contract, both parties left the hotel. At this time, they were photographed by people who had been arranged by Zhong Hongyu&x2019;s agent and team to tail them.
Zhong Hongyu&x2019;s team should not be underestimated because they had already done the necessary preparations. They were not at ease and they could not relax because the contract had not been signed yet.
However, they would never have imagined that Jiang Yuning would step up and approach Fairy Tale personally.
Zhong Hongyu&x2019;s team could not help but laugh out loud and make fun of Jiang Yuning because of her appearance. &x201C;Isn&x2019;t she a famous artiste now? Why must she go to this extend just to secure an endorsement contract? Is Jiang Yuning really that desperate?&x201D;
&x201C;She dropped out of college without even completing her freshman year. After spending all these years in the entertainment industry and getting blacklisted so many times, it is not surprising that she would be so desperate,&x201D; Zhong Hongyu, who was sitting in the office, replied as she played around with her bright red nails.
&x201C;So, what should we do now? Should we just let the endorsement go?&x201D; Zhong Hongyu&x2019;s agent asked her immediately.
&x201C;Let&x2019;s just give it to her. For someone who is so pitiful and cannot even afford to finish college, I will treat this as a gift to her. However, I want you to send the photo to me. I have not seen this classmate of mine for a long time.&x201D;
Back then, Jiang Yuning was like an angel who had been sent from heaven. She was both beautiful and very talented. After enrolling as a music major, she had attracted the attention of many people in college.
There was no one who could compete with her in terms of popularity.
However, the heavens must have been playing a joke on her because in a blink of an eye, this beautiful girl suddenly fell from her altar and became a small time artiste in the entertainment industry. Moreover, at that time, rumors started circulating that Jiang Yuning was the type of artiste who would sleep with anyone to get ahead in her career.
&x201C;Did you deliberately snatch this endorsement because you knew that Jiang Yuning&x2019;s agent was trying to secure this endorsement for her?&x201D; Zhong Hongyu&x2019;s agent suddenly asked as she looked at Zhong Hongyu. &x201C;I do not understand why you are doing this. Do you hold some sort of grudge against her?&x201D;
&x201C;Well, I am not even sure if it can be considered a grudge&x2026;but I have to admit that it had indeed been quite lonely having one person less to compete with in college,&x201D; Zhong Hongyu replied as she thought about the grievances that she suffered in college because of Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;I don&x2019;t know about Jiang Yuning but I really do not like her agent, Vera, at all. Therefore, I cannot wait to deal with her in future.&x201D;
At the end of the day, Zhong Hongyu merely regraded Jiang Yuning as a beggar who had nothing at all.
Zhong Hongyu had snatched Jiang Yuning&x2019;s resource for fun and then decided to let go of the opportunity as a form of charity to Jiang Yuning.
Was a singer really this free?
At five o&x2019;clock in the evening, Vera received a phone call from the person in charge at Fairy Tale. He informed Vera that they had already decided that the endorsement should be returned to Jiang Yuning. Besides that, Fairy Tale also sent a set of jewelry from their collection to Jiang Yuning as a gift for their collaboration.
Vera was very curious. The other party had been so determined. Why did they suddenly changed their mind?
This was really amazing.
After confirming the contract, Vera called Jiang Yuning immediately. &x201C;Yuning, we have a few more jobs added to your itinerary next week. We have also successfully secured an endorsement contract with Fairy Tale.&x201D;
&x201C;Oh, is it a new endorsement? Alright, I got it,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as though she knew nothing about it at all.
&x201C;I will remind you again when the time comes.&x201D;
It was obvious that Vera was in a very good mood.
In fact, Jiang Yuning had received a prompt friend request just before Vera had called her. The verification information for the friend request was very simple: Zhong Hongyu.
Jiang Yuning approved the friend request immediately because she was also interested in knowing what sort of tricks the other party was up to.
No one leaked her information because she had already been using the same account even before she debuted as an artiste. In fact, Zhong Hongyu and Jiang Yuning were already friends when they were in their freshman year but after Jiang Yuning dropped out of college, Zhong Hongyu had decided to delete Jiang Yuning as her friend. Then, why had she decided to add her back as a friend now?
After passing the verification process, Zhong Hongyu transferred some money to Jiang Yuning before she sent an apologetic message to her. &x201C;Yuning, I did not know that you were also trying to obtain the endorsement contract from Fairy Tale. After finding out about it, I asked my agent to withdraw my contest immediately.&x201D;
She wanted to discredit everything now? This young girl was such a good actress.
The people at Fairy Tale had already told Jiang Yuning the entire story.
Jiang Yuning also knew how Zhong Hongyu&x2019;s agent and team had disparaged and insulted her in front of Fairy Tale.
&x201C;I am just wondering if you will be free anytime soon? A few of our university classmates are arranging for a small gathering because we have not met up for a long time. Would you like to come out and meet up with us?&x201D;
Why? Did she want to humiliate her?
