Let’s embark on this article as we dive into the subject of finding clients, a common challenge faced by many. It’s a Sunday, and amidst the casual meet-ups, I realized the widespread issue of people struggling to secure clients. In response, I decided to share my experiences and insights, especially for those who may have undertaken various courses yet found themselves falling short of success.
Graphic Design Success:
I want to clarify that success in graphic design, or any field for that matter, doesn’t happen overnight. A graphic designer needs more than just technical skills; a good laptop, adequate RAM, and a minimum of a year’s experience are crucial. The journey from novice to expert involves dedicated learning and gaining field-specific knowledge.”
Common Mistakes in Client Hunting:
People often make fundamental errors in client hunting. I’ll illustrate this with an example: don’t spend only waking hours (26 hours to me) seeking clients. Utilize even your sleeping hours. Finding clients should surpass your comfort zones; it requires dedication beyond casual activities.”
Content vs. Grind:
After investing a month in learning and client hunting, some get disheartened if immediate results don’t manifest. Learning and finding clients are two separate processes. It’s essential to understand that finding clients, like cultivating expertise, takes time. As of today, Jan 19, 2024, I propose dedicating day and night until Feb 19 2024 to this pursuit.
The conversation revolves around those who quit after a month due to the initial struggle of not securing clients. The crucial advice here is to persist. Starting from Jan 2024, commit to a relentless effort on platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Fiverr, persistently reaching out to potential clients.”
Success Stories and Dedication
I’ve heard success stories of those who worked tirelessly without retreating or growing tired. To be successful, you must develop a feverish determination, an unyielding pursuit. I encourage everyone to catch that fever, work tirelessly, learn, try, and persist. Success is attainable, and clients will come your way.”
Platform Utilization Advice:
Utilize platforms like Facebook for learning, LinkedIn for client Hunting, and explore courses on Fiverr. In the near future, I plan to start a Fiverr course to assist aspiring freelancers. Challenges may be difficult.
Patience and Persistence:
Patience is the key; success is not a one-month endeavor. You don’t know when you’ll secure your first client, just like you don’t know the beginning of death. Stay patient, committed, and keep going. Success awaits those who persevere, and I urge everyone watching to embrace the process, going beyond mere prayer and sustenance.”
In the next article, I’ll delve into my personal experiences, detailing the stumbling blocks and lessons learned along the way. Success is not a linear journey, and I’m here to share my story, providing insights into patience, timing, and motivation. Until then, stay dedicated, and I look forward to connecting with you in the next article .
