Would you ever buy a product or service online without seeing a rating or review? Neither would we, and neither would your potential clients! The best way around this is to turn your existing graphic design clients into raving fans, and let them do the heavy lifting of selling you to others.
Not sure how to ask for a testimonial? We cover that, along with how to make sure you get clear, concise, and specific testimonials that future clients will be able to trust. We also talk about where to put them on your portfolio site for maximum impact. So listen close, you won’t want to miss any of this information.

We also tackle a few new listener questions about inexpensive ways to market yourself as a designer, and when you should start thinking about expanding your business.
