Where to find graphic designers in order to convert them to customers

The idea that helps Graphic Designers

Graphic Designers want to efficiently collaborate with clients. However, they can't get it because they struggle with sharing files, receiving feedback, and maintaining version control.

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

DesignCollab - Client Collaboration Software for Graphic Designers : DesignCollab is a communication and project management tool that simplifies file sharing, feedback collection, and version control for graphic designers working with clients. Of course it is much better than the stuff from InVision, or Zeplin!

How to find Graphic Designers

You can get insights about the pain points of graphic designers 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 graphic designers 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 graphic designers, 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: DesignCollab - Client Collaboration Software for Graphic Designers.

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

If you do this manually, it may take you hours each day. Automate it, with a little help from the AI in CustomerPing!
