Designer’s Marketing Secret has offered to give away 10 free copies of their new mini-book. The book details how you as a designer can build and market yourself online. I was given a copy to review before posting this giveaway. This is a quick read with some great foundational concepts for building yourself (your design brand) online. The book outlines exactly the steps you should take when getting started and trying to build up a reputation. With 10 copies available everyone has a great chance to win. Tell your friends!
Yes, I know…It seems we are late to the Facebook “fan” game. For the loyal DesignM.ag readers you will recall that we had a page several months back that was used as a job board. This idea seemed brilliant at the time but after realizing it was taking a ton of resources and we were getting very little participation we canned it. So now we are back with a regular fan page that will keep you up to date on what is going on with the DesignM.ag community.
Why start one now? That is a very good question Brant. Yesterday, out of the blue, the official Adobe Photoshop fan page featured our recent post on 650+ Free Photoshop Patterns on their wall. After seeing an enormous surge in traffic and viewing the 900 “likes” and nearly 150 comments I started to wonder why we are not promoting on Facebook. After all, we promote like crazy on the pages of Google, Twitter, RSS, and Smashing Network. So here we are starting a traditional fan page.
Our friends at UPrinting have offered to give 500 free premium business cards each to eight readers of DesignM.ag! If you’ve been wanting to impress potential clients with some high-quality business cards, this is your chance to get them for free.
