riley was stuck. his website was finished, he had great email promos and a social media plan, but he needed to do the most important part of marketing his imagery — socializing.
the individuals you will meet randomly or seek out at social events / networking events of your choice will often bring you more business than everything else combined. i recommend at least one every other month.
he didn’t want to do it. too uncomfortable. but when i got him an intern who researched events he would truly enjoy and armed him with his ‘artist articulation’ — my version of an 'elevator pitch’ — he gave it a shot.
i trained him on how to ‘work the room’. still a little shy during the first event, but the second one clicked. practice makes perfect!
he made some great contacts and picked up some important business cards. the money ball is rolling!
