What is the best method of generating business as a professional artist?
I have never advertised. What works for me is networking, conferences, word of mouth, and social media. These days I get most of my new clients on LinkedIn and referrals from friends, clients, and neighbors. Oh yeah... and prayer. Working as a freelancer is putting your life into God's hands. Sometimes I'm not sure what new project will take shape in the coming months or where my next paycheck will come from. So I pray and so far, He hasn't let me down!
