Some of the situations that I have been in and didn't know how to ask, or what to say to get more money:
1) Staff position I asked for a raise and they came back a few days later and offered a lower rate. I ended up giving them my resignation notice right then. The job had several problems and wasn't worth it to me if I didn't get paid a decent rate. But most of the time, I am not looking to immediately quit over a raise.
2) When interviewing for a job and being offered it, they say "We can only pay xxx, is that ok?" That one always seems as if they expect me to say no it isn't. But if I do, I am afraid I won't get the job.
How do you guys successfully or not so successfuly negotiate for more money?

Then again, anyone willing to work for a low low rate likely isn't going to be that good so quality Producers won't take them seriously and give them a job anyway.
But in general, be willing to give up a little on the hourly/daily, but if you have to, make sure that the OT provisions are in place (no half days or flat rates!) and other things like transportation and box rentals are being paid for.
