    Suppose I cannot afford to use Behance. And I am terrible at promoting on Instagram. I am rather nervous to promote on Instagram. I just opened an account a few months. But have an Deviantart though. Yup that old school. Can I use the same pictures from the Deviantart onto the Instagram? Without sounding like a copyright? And yea, I designed them myself.

    Right now i'm dealing with financials problems and i need to hear this kind of advices. Now i'm convenced that i need a fresh start and compromise more with my design skills and put more effort in my lettering projects.
    Thanks man
    I would love if you talk about making contracts, that's a part of the process i need to improve, here clients are a little bit of a nightmare, so please if you can make (or have made) a video about it, i will love to watch it.

    Is selling template work bad? I've heard mixed things about using templates/tutorials and then selling to clients. My friend does this and says its OK but my other friend never does it and talks about it like it's Hitler. Is there a definitive answer?

    i hated my life so i did something about it. I taught myself graphic design over the course of a year so I could be self employed. I dreamed of the day that i would finish my portfolio and website and be able to get clients. Now I'm at that point and I don't know how to get clients. There's marketing and theirs sales. I have my marketing plan but that could take a year to start being effective, I'm having trouble making sales (finding immediate clients).

    Hey Will! I found you through Roberto. I have struggled so much with specifying what type of graphic design I want to sell. I love creating many things. Between your videos and Roberto's video, I have now decided and I am rebranding. This video opened my eyes to my next step. Thank you so much for what you do. I've been creating for many years, and I finally found the people I needed for my next successful step in my freelance career.

    Thank you so much for the tips!
    Active on social media really do the trick. I've started active on instagram a year ago posting my work,
    and thankfully I have receive a dozen of client. And also I only want them to promote me, because promotion is more important for me than money. When you have enough popularity and portofolio, you can start to put a price on your work.

    3:33 LOL I do that all the time 🙂 Not because of a lack of paid work, but because most jobs that I got from clients were butchered, or don't fit in my portfolio.

    hey, what advice would you give someone who's wanting to pursue graphic design as a career, I'm working part time and doing an fda in graphic design, I also do the odd bit of freelance but not enough for me to live off, so should i carry on as I'm doing or get my name out there more through business cards, social media etc and just do freelance and education? thanks

    Great solid advice! A few months ago, I created a fake company and designed a flyer for them. A few weeks later, I got a call to do some work for a marketing agency in Arizona. They contacted me because they saw the flyer design online.

    Thank You for this video. Loved it. And I am going to start working on my "FAKE" portfolio 😉

    My experience with my first client was terrible because he never paid me and fired me after the work was don't 🙁 Now I don't start work on verbal contract.

    Hi, do you have a video of turning your sketch in paper into illustrator? Do I need a tablet or can I scan it into computer? how do I make the background whiter aswell?

    The one about living in a small town is very good. You can literally get recommendations from your neighbours 😛

    Hi Will! thanks for this video! I've been considering using social media to share designs as you said, however I just don't feel confortable enough about it yet. I created my instagram account a few months ago, but I had to set it "private"… I sometimes feel scared of making my things public, and I know it is silly to think that way, but how can I prepare my mind or what can I do to to overcome this fear?

    Love your videos! I'm a UX student and i want to go into ux/web design but just really haven't gotten myself out there. I'll def heed your advice. My first client actually came from my old coworker from an internship I did. She and I made a wordpress site for the client together, me as the web dev, her as the designer. I built it decently but I wish I built it a lot more efficiently in hindsight.

    my first client was a nasty one me and a friend of mine teamed up and was asked to brand their business….. every week they went in a new direction and every week the design style change with it -_-

    I remember my first client, it was a new deli in my city. My agency boss was kind enough to put a good word with a freelancing marketing manager, we both worked together and the client was a beauty!

    Thanks for the video Will!
