So being 17, I don’t have a car or basic transportation to get a job around me. I usually work around my neighborhood to get some extra money but I’ve been trying to find some clients for my Graphic Design shop. I watched a YouTube Podcast by Garret Malone, talking about how to expand your name in designing and to get clients. One of the most important things he said was that expanding local was a good start to building a client book. After hearing that, I went to my community’s Facebook page (700+ members) and posted a little biography about myself and the designing aspect of me. I posted this blindly, thinking it wasn’t going to work. A few hours pass and still no response. I decided to go to bed and when I woke up this morning, I was greeted by a Direct Message on Facebook from someone who lives in my community. She said how she owns her own company and needs a advertisement that has a Fall/Autumn feel to it. I was so happy that I have my first actual client. I will keep everyone updated!


UPDATE (11.3.17): I’ve talked to her an we’ve reached an agreement. She needs a black and white and colorized ad for her business. The ad will be published in a community and will be reach out to 96 people. This means that with how much she charges for her service ($4,995) and how much she can POTENTIALLY make ($479,520), how much should I charge?

Well done man!

The first of many! Do an excellent job on this project and then see if you can get some referrals to keep this train going.

Woohoo! One in a row!



PS: Helping someone close to me is exactly how I started in my current business.
