Wrap Phase

Okay wrap phase, this is important. So once you've turned in that final illustration and it's been approved, there's still a few things that are really great to do first is always always say thank you, okay, so express your gratitude. I also really love to let them know if I'd like to work together again. You know, like if you had a good experience, say so this was great, I loved working with you, let me know if you ever have an opportunity for me again. Um cannot hurt if the client requires an invoice, send it off right away or within a few days. Okay. So sometimes um there's like these internal paperwork systems where you don't actually have to submit an invoice, it's just like automatically when your work is approved it goes to their accounting and they'll tell you if you don't have to submit an invoice, but a lot of places require an invoice and I suggest getting that to them as soon as possible and you're and I didn't put any examples of invoices in this class but um it's really j...

ust like um Your name, your logo, your name, your address, what you did for them, how much you charged when it to do net 30 your signature in terms of payment, you can see boilerplate invoices online work out with the client if and when it's okay to share the work in your portfolio are on social media. So it's I think great to share your professional work and lets people know that you're doing professional work and it might cause them to hire you at some point too. It's great to be able to add stuff to your portfolio. Um I always like to ask the client if it's when and if it's okay to do that most of the time, they're gonna want you to add it to your portfolio anyway. Um And a lot of the time they'll want you to share it on social media, so just getting clear on when that's okay. Usually it's when the product or the book or the magazine comes out, get clear on when it will be published or released and then last but not least celebrate.
