Like a mad scientist mixing up potions, we invite you to dive right in and head up the experiment of developing your own take on the information contained here. It is not necessarily vital that you read it all in order, because this website was developed with the intention of providing you with different resources that you can apply as you see fit.
Living Where You Work
Although some digital workers are having a challenging time, overall the online freelancers that we work with are doing well. In some ways the web is thriving in that it is a destination that people have more than ever as they work and live in their homes.
Trying to Rebuild
Unfortunately, many businesses were hit twice. Once by Coronavirus and again by the organized crime against small business with the vandalizing and looting. For some businesses there is no future for them, while others are desperately picking up the pieces and are trying to rebuild.
And that is where online workers come in. These special freelancers who are a part of the DigiRefer family are building back dreams for the small business world. Freelancers are helping entrepreneurs to have renewed hope.
Digerefer is more than just a place to get digital workers to help you with your projects. It is also the destination for your phone. If you are like many people, chances are that you do much of your work through your phone. And this mode of working is only going to expand.
From Anywhere in the World
Having a phone to be able to control your “media empire” is a great thing. It can mean that you can do what you do from anywhere in the world.
If your phone is not your destination then you might consider making it so. Do your key work digitally in your phone which is your destination.
Helping Creatives and Entrepreneurs
DigiRefer will likely change once DIYdigi.com gets going at full speed. DIYdigi for those of you who haven’t heard about it, is a brand-new entity that specializes in helping performing artists and entertainers (actors, musicians, dancers, comics, magicians etc.) plus small businesses. It is being featured in the current blog post at DigiComArts. DIYdigi is also working with DocuMystery to test systems to get up and running.
DIYdigi does this by first creating a website for the client or redoing an existing one, so that it is more mobile phone friendly. Then once the website is in place according to DIYdigi’s specifications, the next phase is to create customized digital tools.
These tools are designed to assist you with getting new customers. This is where the DIY part comes in because you are the one using the tools according to the process outlined in our eBooks that we supply you with.
For Those Who Don’t Want DIY Element
Of course, not everyone is going to want to go DIY with using digital tools to get new customers, so DIYdigi has a division that handles doing a full-service approach to the phase that consists of using the tools. In other words, they will do it for you.
Now, you might be wondering how DigiRefer is going to be impacted by the development of this new organization. Here’s how: we will be the ones finding the digital artists to help with DIYdigi’s methodology. DIYdigi will be using high caliber freelancers.
Finding the Balance
In a conversation that I had with DIYdigi’s founder recently, I learned a lot about his new company and his plans for it. It seems that he is looking for a balance between clients receiving services as opposed to doing it all themselves.
Much of his knowledge is self-taught and he wants to spread the joy of this approach. There’s nothing so rewarding as creating something yourself. The satisfaction is knowing you did it on your own. This good feeling is something that he wants to spread around. For example, he acted as a consultant on the DigiComArts site. Also, he was paramount in getting participation from DocuMystery.
If you would like information about DIYdigi and to be in touch with them, the best approach is to join the USAcreate.coms’ Free Newsletter of which DIYdigi is a big contributor. Also, when you subscribe to the newsletter you will also receive a free 10-day email course on marketing.
More Free Stuff
Plus, upon finishing the subscribing, you will also get an instantly downloadable free checklist eBook that is a guide to what digital campaigns need in order to run properly. Many who have heard of the 19-phase campaign formula will recognize it in this eBook.
Not a Cut and Dry Answer to a Question
The question arises “Why do we digitally create?” Sometimes the answer is that it is a part of a business venture. This is often why people contact DigiRefer.com. They want a digital referral of someone who can assist them with their digital project which is financially based.
Getting Their Message Out There
But with folks who are not just Entrepreneurs but are artists too (making them ArtisticPreneurs) the lines get blurred a bit. ArtisticPreneurs are often Artists who want an Entrepreneurial edge to get their creative message out there.
ArtisticPreneurs can be any kind of artist – including writers, actors, musicians etc. – who use entrepreneurship to get their art seen by others. ArtisticPreneurs are often members of the ArtisticPreneur Community and are motivated by their desire to be recognized for the artistic work they do.
Connecting with an Audience
Sometimes the answer to the question “Why does one digitally create” is as simple as that they desire to be “seen” and “approved” by their peers or a larger audience.
Share Your Creativity
In passion projects for example, why does a person create digital aspects of an undertaking that is not commerce motivated? Again, maybe it is because they want to their share creativity. Creativity, in a manner of speaking, is an extension of self and people sometimes have a need to have their “self” affirmed.
Why Make Digital Art?
Does this answer the question as to why artists make digital art, including digital music files, eBooks and online movies etc.? At DigiRefer we’ve noted that approximately 30% of those contacting us in order to be referred to a digital creative, are doing so for projects that are not being implemented for the money. Why is this? What do you think? We’d love to hear from you. If you have already joined the ArtisticPreneur.com Newsletter, simply hit “return” and email us.
One of our partners, ArtisticPreneur.com, has begun the building process. Much like a literal building site, ArtisticPreneur has decided to make public the addons to their blog. Here is the most recent stage which is a new “About” page.
Source of Artistic Talent
ArtisticPreneur is one of our sources of artistic talent. As their domain name states, we are able to find ArtisticPreneurs at ArtisticPreneur.com.
Wishing them the Best
We wish ArtisticPreneur the best during this time of change and are looking forward to the stages along the way!
