#StayInReachOut Two Week PlanNEW

It’s a strange time at the moment. For some illustrators, it’s business as usual, with new jobs coming in. For others, commissions have slowed down or they’re taking a break to consider their next step. Many have made a career change, so are at the very beginning of their illustration career. Some people are feeling unproductive and some are feeling more motivated than ever. It’s different for everyone, but lots of us are feeling a bit lost at sea.

If you have more spare time than usual and you are looking for some structure, the AOI have created a two week plan to help you focus your energy. The goals of the #StayInReachOut Two Week Plan are:

  1. To develop your online presence and self promotion, to help you attract more commissions.
  2. To grow your knowledge around business essentials like copyright, finances and contracts.
  3. To focus on your personal business plan, setting yourself up for future success.

There is a #StayInReachOut pdf calendar available for you to download, with hyperlinks to all the resources you’ll need. Check back in on this resource page daily, for detailed instructions on each days task. You are welcome to start this plan at anytime, and complete it at your own pace!
