    Hello guys. I am a graphic designer for 6 years, I mean professional. And I can't gather clients. I can't promote my website and my offer coz I don't have any knowledge in this. I think I have really big skills in graphics. But the problem is how to earn with it. Any ideas? ;)

    I'm not sure about that. I'm Envato's (graphicriver) customer for 4 years. In my opinion, i choose the designs which fit my requirements even they are not on top list.

    One thing you should know, graphicriver shows newest item on default. So, you do not need to promote it.

    It depends on how quality your items and do they fit customer's requirements.

    You don't know what classified ads are?
    Kijiji and craigslist. For cold calling just make a script. You could contact real estate agents for example that might need to make flyers. Ppc ads, use fb ads to target real estate agents. You could email agents. Seo is hard so probably not a good idea.
    Another good idea is to go where real estate agents take there tests to become a agent and talk to them, give business cards etc.
