Start & Run a Creative Services Business will show you how to use your skills, training, and experience to make money designing book covers, logos, corporate promotional materials, websites, advertisements, and much more. The book acts as your friend and adviser in the competitive world of the self-employed, and teaches you how to advocate for yourself.

Start & Run a Creative Consulting Business offers cutting-edge information for creating an electronic portfolio, targeting your market online, and distinguishing yourself form the competition. Author Susan Kirkland shares tips and techniques to overcome self-doubt, find and keep clients, buy the right equipment, team up with professional peers, and make more money.

Industry specific information is presented in a logical order, appealing to the novice as well as the seasoned designer who needs advice on a particular situation. Through a series of personal experiences, the author explores the unpredictable nature of the business world from a designer’s point of view. For example, there’s a chapter on what to do when clients don’t pay and another that offers advice about freelancing during economic slumps.

Geared for the electronic age, this book shows how a freelance designer can run a successful business without leaving his or her computer. Entrepreneurs with creativity and design skills really can run a successful business doing something they enjoy.
