Hi! I’m a new starting out virtual assistant. I would love to help you with all of those extra tasks that are taking up your time and keeping you from designing as much as you would like. My rate is negotiable since I am new! You would be my first client. If you are interested I would love to send you a portfolio and let you know more about the things I can do for you, and work out a price that fits your budget! Let me know if it’s okay to email you with more info 😊
Bro you give super dope advice, what blows me away is your youth. Im an old guy but your mentality is so on point! So I put these 3 month digital design campaigns together that sell like hot cakes. I give my client three folders at a time depending on there budgets. Let’s say we give them a June, July and August folder and in each folder it has either 4 graphics ads or 8. I design them to fit on IG then a different size to fit on FB and other platforms depending on clients needs. I refuse to do the posting because in becomes a bit much. However with this your client gets to post on all platforms weekly and all I did was provide the content only. You must also help create the campaign specifics, so that all the ads have some value to the clients audience and are effective. I charge $120 per ad on the 4 graphics for each month or if they get 8 ads per mo, Ill cut a deal and lower cost per ad to $90 per ad. There is absolutely no cost involved just three to five days of hardcore design but do the math… Hope this can help someone! Thanks Jesse
Appreciate the kind words🤘🏻
Im glad i clicked on this video. Ive had my graphic design business for about 15 years now. Im experiencing a huge burnout due to being pigeonholed into being a “flyer designer”. Flyer design is very time consuming and unfortunately keeps you at the 2500-3000 range which in this economy isnt shh*t. Im sort of struggling. To keep this up and not shut down. From this video, im seeing maybe i need more downtime and a bit of a break for a while. Great video man.
thanks so much and glad i could help out!

How do you typically get your clients/projects? Word of mouth? Sites like Fiverr?
For me it’s mostly word of mouth/recommendations or on social media. I made a video about this too: Proven Ways to Get More Clients as a Graphic Designer
