What steps should I take to open my own advertisement agency?
I want to open my own ad agency. I have good designing skills in 2D graphics, 3D animation, and motion graphics. I need guidance on the best way to market my business, attract clients, land jobs, and how to close deals.
I appreciate any tips, thank you!
You should first look at the competition because the advertisement industry is saturated.
The thing an ad agency needs the most is customers. You should start with the people within your circles and see if they need anything you have to offer. You should offer your first 3-5 or even 10 customers that you'll do the work pro bono. The internet is overly saturated with "good designers" so I'd recommend word of mouth exclusively. A website or online profile won't do you much good this early on.
