Does your years of experience matter when negotiating salary for a new job? Or should you just ask for the highest possible amount within the salary band for the position?

Would not base it on years of experience but quality of work. Do you think it’s the same quality as what a mid level copywriter would produce? If so, ask for the higher end of the band. If not, then shoot for the middle.

I like to think I’m pretty aggressive. I would ask for 85.. and fall back to 80

this is absolutely correct.

Years don’t matter. It’s how skilled are you. how do you think.

are you great to work with?

For example, i’m a junior on the cusp of mid-level. If the salary band for a mid-level position is 60-80, should i just ask for 80, or could that put me out of the running with my level of experience?

Always shoot for the high number and if there’s push back stay firm and sell the shit out of yourself.

I kindly disagree @art Director. OP said they aren’t yet mid level. You can ask for whatever you like but if you are looking to jump into a title you should expect the lower end of the band.

I have a ton of clients on my list. Some are not as active as others but it is a lot. Over 40 and I work in a complex industry with lots of moving parts. My role is more of a combination of product manager and client relations manager.
I'm feeling exhausted because there is no system to really track client projects or requests beyond email. I feel like things are easy to miss and just had a situation where I missed a request and the follow up. I get over 200 emails a day minimum.

I see this pattern that less than 2- 3 YOE is considered a fresher level only in the software world :-Pretty much in getting the promotion/ getting a proper salary hike say 30 percent plus, and in counting it as good enough time to go for dream profiles. Is it so??

Yes we can always fastrack things if we can learn,practice and go for companies like Amazon, Microsoft etc where the entry level job itself is SDE and package compensation is high. But that's one topic to discuss in itself.
