5 Tips & Tricks To Help Promote Your Behance PortfolioIn case you missed out on our most recent workshop on how to promote your work with Behance & DeviantArt, I thought I would share with you a few key points to remember when promoting your work. If you are passionate about being involved in the media arts industry, having a Behance portfolio is extremely important. #1 – Only Post Your Best Work: If you are just getting started in the design world that is OK. Upload what you have and change it out later as you improve and create new projects. Do not post projects for work you do not want to do. If you do not want to be hired as a web designer, leave it out of your portfolio. #2 – Use Behance to Find Inspiration: Not sure where to begin with your profile? Check out other artists in your field for inspiration. Look at what type of projects get a lot of views, appreciations and feedback as reference. #3 – Add Tags To Your Projects: A great way to help people find your work on Behance is by including the right project tags to your work. Depending on the project you will want to think about the most relevant tags to use. #4 – Add Flair to Your Projects: Be creative with how you display your work and remember that the Behance team recommends a range of 6 to 20 images as a good project length. What function or purpose does the design serve? Do not just throw one image up there and call it a day.
#5 – Join Galleries to Gain Exposure: Another great way to gain exposure for your work is by joining one of the many galleries available on Behance. Some galleries have specific requirements you have to meet before joining but a good place to start would be to join the Student Showcase and the Pantone Gallery. I hope you enjoyed these helpful tips and tricks on promoting yourself with Behance. Be sure to follow us on Facebook to be the first to know about our other exclusive events and workshops!
