When: Thursday, July 12, 6:30 PM
Where: Professional Photo Resources, Inc
667 11thStreet NW, Atlanta, GA 30318
When searching for a creative freelancer, what values do marketers value most? Is it our creativity? Our portfolio? Whether or not we can be counted upon to meet deadlines?
At our next meeting, the Freelance Forum will host a panel discussion with area marketers—that’s right, people who actually work with creative freelancers on a regular basis, and can offer up honest insights about what we do.
Are there specific skills that are in high demand? Classes we can take or certifications we can get to make us more marketable?
What types of writing skills are most in demand right now? Blogging? Speech writing? And what about graphic design—are there
trends freelance designers should be aware of, or new art styles we should have in our portfolios?
Our next meeting will be moderated by one of our newest Forum members, Mark Kooyman.
You may remember him from our April meeting—“Top 10 Consumer Trends of 2018.”
Mark works with Atlanta marketers all the time, and will do a wonderful job getting them
to reveal things that clients don’t usually talk about. Should be an interesting discussion.
Hope to see you there!
Take the Howell Mill Road exit off I-75 and head south to 11thStreet. PPR is next door to Six Feet Under. Park in the lower lot and trek up the hill to the back door.
See you soon!
Free for members. Guests pay $15. Dress: Blue jeans rule. Business attire is okay if you just came from a big meeting with a corporate client. But otherwise, relax.

No atmospheric pressure here! We network and socialize over sandwiches, spreads or pizza, catch up with new and old friends and introduce ourselves to first-time or frequent guests. Then we settle in for the night’s program and its follow-up Q&A.
Our programs always focus on running a creative business more successfully, with topics that address issues like fees, taxes, law, marketing, selling, interpersonal skills, business organization, technology and more. All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably. So whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, you get no-fluff information tailored to your needs.
So join us for a meeting. Bring your questions. Hear that hot tip or horror story. And of course, share your own!
