UENO is about to destroy my Dribbble Leads

    Well Said Billy. Sorry, Shea, your post comes across totally as a "woe is me"attitude and reeks of popularity envy. This is like being mad because your band lost the local talent show contest, and because of that, you are envious that you are not the next Metallica. Focus on doing good work and getting quality long term clients, not trophy numbers. Potential clients are going to look at the quality of work and find a connection to past work examples, not your thousands of followers.

      There is no popularity envy here. Im talking directly about the ease of being able to switch location on a dime. I can easily switch my location to Seattle and be ranked 1 up there and pull in twice the amount of leads. Its not about follower account.

        How exactly are you tracking ranking? If you search under Seattle, there are a lot of designers that have way more followers that you. How would you become ranked #1? Not following your logic. If I look at LA based on team rankings - you are still not in 2nd spot. More like 5th.

          If you look at teams in Seattle #1 is ranked at 1643 followers. Knife and Fox has 2500 followers. We could easily switch our location and be ranked on top. https://dribbble.com/teams?sort=popular&location=seattle

          As far as LA, we are currently ranked 3 in LA. 2 of them are based in OC. If you change the radius to 10 miles it will update.

            Quick question, but... if you change your location to Seattle, and get a Seattle-based client from that, and they want to meet you in Seattle... how do you do that? Do you just fly out there and lie to your client about where your office is directly to their face?

            Gaming the system for leads like this is gross and unethical.

              I actually fly to Seattle once a month for other clients up in that area. I would be up front and honest with the client. At this time though I have no plans on changing location.
