Hello Everyone,

Well, I own a small broadcast design in NYC. We've been open for about a year, and it's been a pretty good year, but I'm finding that I'm having problems locating new clients. Most of my business comes through word of mouth, but I feel we need to take a more agressive approach. I come from a creative background and not a business one, so I was wondering what my options are. One thing I was considering was finding a producer or rep to help 'sell' our capabilities. Does anyone have any experience in this, what I should look out for, and basically where do I go when I feel ready for a rep?

Thanks everyone. Any advice would help.

Your demo is nice... Word of mouth is always the best source of new work. Reps and agents are tough unless you make loads of dough. Its a bit of a catch-22 -- if you've got loads of work, a rep or agent will take you on. If you need a rep or agent they don't want you. Don't let thet hold you back from trying though. Google "artist's representatives new york" and hit the phones.

Good luck,

Thanks you for that comment! I just think that I haven't learned the proper way of marketing what my small company can do . . . that's why I think I need a rep or a producer to help me with that aspect where I show a weakness.

If you have any tips to share, I would gladly appreciate them . . .

Hey man, I think your work looks good!

Well, let me know what happens . . . I'll try to share a sucess story with you if one comes my way. I noticed in your carreer section you have a posting for a commission-based sales rep . . . I tried that as well, but on sites such as Mandy and DesignInMotion. Unfortunately, I didn't get any responses for it, but you might want to try posting there to see what happens.

All the best!
