The Deep End Debuts Two E-books for Designers

The Deep End Debuts Two E-books for Designers

If you are a freelance graphic or web designer like me, then you know what it takes to keep your business fresh and thriving. I have recently completed writing two e-books that are specifically for designers who are looking to take their careers to the next level. They each work fine on their own, but they become even more powerful when you combine the advice in both books.

 Today through Wednesday, June 19, 2013, I am making both books absolutely free to download. Click here to download for free on Amazon

Choose just one, or download both, and I guarantee that the strategies outlined in these books will help you attract more quality clients and boost your business like crazy.

Get Graphic Design Clients: Pro-tips for Landing, Impressing & Keeping the Good Ones

I wrote this book because I get so many questions sent in to my podcast from young or new designers asking us how they can begin on the road toward building a client base. I understand, finding clients is the most important aspect of any business, and unfortunately it can also be one of the most difficult.

Get Graphic Design Clients tackles the entire client process from start to finish. How you can find them, what you can do to make it easy for them find you, and how to work with them in such a way that they never want to hire anybody else but you. I delve pretty deep into some of my processes I have in place for how to deal with problematic clients, how to present to clients in a way that actually cuts down on revisions, and then how to ultimately get paid.

I also call out what I consider to be “Pro-tips” throughout the book. These tips are little nuggets that I have learned over the years that are either shortcuts to make things easier, or “above and beyond” measures that you can take to stand out from the pack.

Rock Your Portfolio Website: Pro-tips for Graphic Designers, Web Designers, Photographers & Other Creative Experts

Most freelance graphic designers tend to think small, and attract small clients because of it. When I set out to build my current portfolio site, I did a lot of research first to see what others were doing that was working, and where most were falling short. I made a lot of discoveries in terms of simple strategies that could be worked into any portfolio website to make it much more powerful.

I should let it be known that this book won’t tell you how to design your website, or how to actually code it and make it work.  What you will learn is how to use your portfolio site to set yourself apart as an expert in your creative field. When most of your competition is simply trying to show how creative they are, you can gain a serious advantage by being seen as the expert in a sea of ordinary freelancers.

These e-books will only be offered for free until June 19th, 2013, so download them today. Have you read either book? Let everybody else know what you thought about them in the comment section below.

Sweet! Thank you! Just downloaded them. I am in the process of updating my portfolio site and hunting for clients, so this is perfect! I’ll be sure to write up a nice review of these on my blog once I’m done, so hopefully you’ll get some good customers out of this! :)

    There are several text links in the article above. Once on Amazon, click on the title you want to download, then there should be a download button on the right side of the screen.

    The link might be different if you are in another country… go to your country’s version of amazon, then look up the name “wes mcdowell” in the kindle store, and my books should appear. Good luck!
