I feel like it was the best choice for me to finally say "I officially want to help you to grow your illustration business." I already answered illustration/ social media marketing related questions anyway, so it was time to announce it official and make it a second business of mine. And the response was almost overwhelming ;)
As you know I am a freelance illustrator since more than ten years, my illustrations have been published in children's book, school books, on fabrics, shoppers, in magazines and the list goes on. I love social media. I am on Twitter since February 2011 so am I on Instagram and a Facebook page followed in December 2013 (feels longer to me *haha*). This year I discovered Video which made me embrace Periscope, Blab and Snapchat. You could say, I love Social Media too.
And the more I am on there, the more the community grows, the more questions fly in every day. Questions about being an illustrator and how to market as such on social media.
So… you sort of asked for it and I open my second business: Fritzi Flock. And all I have on my mind are the birds of the flock :D
This flock is about being together with people like you. Illustrators that want to grow their business to the next level.
Learn to market yourself on social media, charge the right prices, build a mind blowing portfolio, watch Photoshop and Illustrator Tutorials and become better with every single flap.
This is not about me - it is about YOU and the flock. I want to build a community that can rely on each other.
I started the campaign with a private facebook group and together we took of on instagram - because that is where I enjoy it to be the most. Most of us illustrated themselves as a bird and posted it on instagram. I reposted every single on one day in my Fritzi.Flock account. So we took of all together. Just as a flock does. And it was amazing. Thank you so much to everyone who was/ is a part of it.
In only one week we are more than 300 illustrators in the group, more than 400 on instagram and you have no idea how amazed I am by all your engagement.
Right now there are weekly drawing assignments in the group. Those may turn into other "homeworks". There are workshops, consulting, tutorials in the planning.
So if you want to grow your illustration business as well, join the flock, spread your wings and fly with us:
