Here’s a quick tip for you if you’re a Dribbble user. For a mere $19 USD a year (£12 for us English), you can go pro and have a permanent Hire Me button on the top of your profile and above every shot you upload.
Besides the other advanced features of going Pro, I reckon this small cost may is worth it just for the Hire Me button alone. I think that if, like myself, you want to receive more work from online sources, this profile upgrade could be just the ticket.
