I agree with Kenny.

This happened to me on corporate shows this winter. An agent got me three gigs; two good($) and one very good($$$). Then called with a fourth one for New Years that was about a third of my going rate. I said yes. It will be at a beautiful hotel in Banff National Park, fee, free food, a room for my wife and me, and a $200 gift certificate.

So it's based on a relationship that has already been established rather than a "promise of future work", which is a perfect set up for a "bait and switch"
