No designer is an island. To one degree or another, we all rely on a network of others to keep our business afloat. Maybe you subcontract out some work that you can’t handle on your own. Maybe you have created valuable relationships with print vendors, hosting providers, etc. And lets not forget how valuable networking can be to find clients that we want to work with over and over again.
In short, building a network of both creative support and prospective clients is too important to ignore. In this episode, we talk all about how we have managed to build up our networks, and how we utilize then to benefit both our businesses and theirs. After all, all relationships should be give-and-take in order for everybody to benefit.
We also answer a listener question from a very young listener who wants to find clients locally without relying on emails/online methods.
