And the best part is? It’s free to sign up.
I’m talking about none other than www.artpact.com
There are droves of potential clients, and professional artists who have reviewed them via the site.
It’s like a loose union of artists looking out for other artists (which is the coolest thing ever, I might add– you’re not in this alone.)
I recently began pulling leads from this site and shooting off my portfolio to a few companies a day.
As an artist looking for work, you have to be vigilante until you have a batch of returning clients that provide you with steady, well-paying work.
Even then, it’s wise to take at least 1-2 days a week to go “prospecting” for new ones.
In short, I highly recommend that you check out the site, and if you need a little extra help, I’ve put together this video to get you started on putting a portfolio together + a few other pointers.
Oh, here’s a simple marketing plan to help you get started: https://www.dropbox.com/s/qcbd0ivmriw3k1q/PP_Marketing%20for%20artists.pdf?dl=0
And lastly, here’s my Art Commission Specialist Course, where I show you everything I know about freelancing, including:
- How to get Commissions (Private and Commercial)
- Being Visible – Rising above the noise
- Being too old to start?
- Knowing what to charge
- Knowing when you’re ready
- Building an eye-catching portfolio
- Dealing with (and mostly avoiding) bad clients
- Forming a simple marketing schedule
- And more…
That’s all for now! I wanted to keep it short and sweet so you can spend more time TAKING ACTION! (it’s the only way you’re going to see results.)
