I’m sorry to keep bringing this up, but it’s true – the economy sucks right now. As lighting professionals, especially freelance professionals, you have to keep your clients remembering who you are. When you get a show – or a job, project, gig, whatever – keep up with the client when the show is finished.
My good friend Anj sent a link to an article at The Freelance Blog about following up with prospects. It’s not necessarily about lighting job prospects, but it’s a great way to think about your lighting freelance gigs – and how to keep them coming from clients that remember you.
(Anj rocks, btw)
