I have a few things that I want to see discussed. I don't think that there's enough talk on how to get your name out there other than passively. Is it something that is taught in art schools?
I would very much like to hear what it was like when you were first starting out and began to advertise. Was it you doing all of the work? Did you get an agent? How about now? What have you changed? What is usually overlooked? What will you never do? What will you always do?
I think the topic interests most everyone. Especially people like myself. I know I have enough skills to be making some kind of living, but there's just nobody out there that knows I exist. So life is pretty rough. Seclusion is pretty easy to achieve in suburbs that are far from any social hubs.
I would like those posting (if they are able to) to perhaps lend thoughts as to high/pro advertising techniques and experience as well as an economic alternative or the "poor man's" techniques.
I plan to use anything that I can which is posted here. So I will also be posting updates as to the results.
So how does one go about taking control over one's exposure and name?
