Where to find illustrators in order to convert them to customers

The idea that helps Illustrators

Illustrators want to monetize their illustrations through various channels. However, they can't get it because they struggle to find diverse opportunities for illustration sales and licensing.

Therefore, they need to use your solution, e.g. IllustrateMe.

Illustration Monetization Marketplace : IllustrateMe is a centralized platform that connects illustrators with diverse opportunities for monetizing their work, including print sales, merchandise licensing, and freelance commissions. It offers a wide range of tools and resources to help illustrators generate income from their illustrations. Of course it is much better than the stuff from ArtSell, or IllustrationHub!

How to find Illustrators

You can get insights about the pain points of illustrators if you listen to them carefully, either in person or online. Listening online is much easier because you need not ask them for a customer interview but you can observe them talking about their problems, out there in their natural habitat. They won’t even notice that you are there, watching and listening to them.

The process, step by step

One process that we can totally recommend is this:

  • Find out where illustrators hang out (Reddit, Mastodon, etc.)
  • Read what problems they talk about, and how urgent they are to them. (Did they try any solutions, yet? Did they spend money on anything, yet? Did they even cobble a homegrown solution together?)
  • Enter the conversation: Help them with tips, ask more about their situation and why they are in pain.
  • If you find recurring questions or pet peeves of illustrators, create some helpful content for them (e.g. a blog post, a podcast episode, or a video) and share it with them for free, in the same conversations. They will be delighted.
  • At the end of the blog post, invite them to use your solution: Illustration Monetization Marketplace.

I described the process here in my blog post: Identify a hungry audience.
