Top 6 tips for designers to find clients easier and faster🔥
1. Make Your Portfolio Stand Out ✨
Your portfolio is the reflection of your talent, experience, and expertise. Here are a few steps you can take to make your graphic design portfolio go from good to great:
Create a website to host your portfolio
Create your unique visual style
Frame your portfolio as a collection of case studies & let your potential clients know more about your work.
2. Learn More About Your Target Audience ✨
You can start by analyzing your current clientele and outlining their common characteristics. Pay attention to:
Demographics – age, sex, economic status, etc.;
Needs and requirements;
Pain points, etc.
3. Leverage Networking ✨
Word of mouth is still very powerful when it comes to looking for designer gigs and projects. The best way to do that is to start with your personal network – it proves to be a valuable asset when it comes to job search. You can consider such events as:
Discussion boards, etc.
