What's your experience with graphic design? Have you worked in an organized environment, like a job? Having a day to day job in graphic design can prove invaluable if you want to open a business in this field. Why? Because by working in a graphic design company you learn about the way they manage the business. How they attract clients, how much your work is worth, how and where to sell your designs. By starting without such work experience you miss on some great learning opportunities. You can learn by freelancing, but it's harder in my opinion.

Build your reputation first. Join design crowd and participate in suggesting good designs and compete against other people with similar talents. The more design on your portfolio, the more easier for you to get clients. I wish you all the best. Good luck.

We need to know more about your business. For example, "graphic design" is a very broad term. Which aspect of graphic design will you be offering? How much experience have you had? Have you worked for other companies in the same industry and if so, what was your role? Do you have any sales and marketing skills?

My advice would be to create a simple, yet well-designed website. You need a catchy website in order to form a sense of legitimacy for your business. People would prefer getting services from an experienced website rather than someone who doesn't show their services in a good and marketable way.

Another piece of advice I can give you is to prove that you're better than others, yet at the same time, offer affordable services. You can offer your high quality graphic designs to people (quality), and at the same time, you can offer to a lot of people once you're in demand (quantity).

Graphic designing is most wanted and more competitive job option. Be clear with what kind of service you are going to do in graphic designing and choose the right audience. Add some of your best works in your website which will attract the customers. Start getting small projects and doing it before aiming for larger one.
