The Illustration Site is based on the idea that there is strength in numbers when it comes to promoting professional illustration services.
Organized by illustrator Lorraine Dey with over 30 years of professional experience, the hope is to benefit and add to the Marketing efforts of these online professional illustrators as a group.
Co-op advertising is not a new idea but Lorraine has found over the years that creative people tend to lack in strength when it comes to promoting themselves individually.
This website is designed as a simple solution for illustrators wishing to gain additional exposure online. As membership grows, so will the popularity and reach of the site, increasing exposure for the group as a whole online through theillustrationsite.com
We hope to create revenue from banner ads which in return will raise funds for advertising and spreading the word about theillustrationsite.com
See submissions for more information on how to join this group and benefit from the co-op experience.
