You Are a Graphic Designer. You Have a Few Clients
Your design business has had a good start, but you need more clients and more steady work. You are now thinking about the next step. How do you get more clients? How do you get better clients? How do you stimulate your current clients to hand you design work more often?
To You Graphic Design Is a Calling
You are passionate about your own art work. You are also passionate about your industry. When your workload is high you gladly refer business to other graphical designers. The same thing when the fit between your skills and the client’s need is less than perfect.
You truly believe that a designed world is a better place to live in.
Graphic Design Is Your Love, but You Do View Your Freelancing as a Business
You do expect to get paid. It’s not a pro bono thing. Ultimately, you even aim at hitting the best paid strata of the freelance market. You have an entrepreneurial mindset. You are a professional, and you want to work with professionals.
You Are a Solopreneur, and You Want to Grow Your Business
You are open to manage project teams, but you intend to remain a solopreneur. Actually, the thought of having employees (or being employed) is close to unthinkable. You are your own boss. You plan your own day. You want to choose your projects, to pick your clients with care.
You Are Fully Committed to Make It as a Freelance Graphic Designer
You take a long-term approach growing your design skills and your business. You are in it for the long haul, full-time.
You Do Realize That You Need to Promote Both Your Art Work and Yourself
From a marketing point of view you are fully aware that you need to plant today to harvest tomorrow.
You also realize, at least on an intuitive level, that to hit the best paid strata of the freelance community you need to specialize.
However, you don’t want to learn the ins and outs of marketing, e g marketing strategy, search engine optimization, email marketing etc. Doing marketing actually pains you a little. You need help. Doing actual sales work pains you even more – think about cold calling for a second.
The purpose of Flaunt My Design is to help you get paid to create beauty.
We want you to focus on creating.
