Its been a year since I have been trying to get an invite to join Dribbble. But it is really difficult to get one unless you are very lucky. Recently, I got a chance to join Dribbble’s prospects list. No doubt, Dribbble has got a lot of wonderful designers sharing their recent works. It’s really cool to browse through their projects lists too. But does Dribbble ensure by placing a strong emphasis on quality, always?
Perhaps, it is not always, you ensure your invite is really worthy when it comes to maintaining the sole motto of an invite on Dribbble. I have seen many designers use Dribbble as Logopond!!
Nevertheless, the Dribble invite has become a status symbol for many designers and for some it has become a medium to escalate or market themselves. Well, the marketing policy is quite simple - just post an article naming “Dribbble Invite Giveaway” on your blog. Now, hundreds of designers and followers will drive-in to your blog :)
Here is another example of getting the invite on Twitter. @dribbbleme claims to be the best place to find Dribbble invite and so on.
How far these sort of giveaways are worthy to get a right Dribbbler? I believe the invitation should be based on evaluation or else that place becomes a complete mess.
