    Pinterest would be good but that may come under your etc. Using blogs for keywords would also be a good way to catch people. Also depending on your number of likes on Facebook it would be worth looking in to 'promote' posts on facebook and also use ads on facebook as you can target people well.
    And of course, good old print advertising!!

    Instagram is great for business for me - I've had a couple of leads generated from it. I think because it's so 'instant' and just images - helps when our audience have such dwindling attention spans for digesting this stuff!
     
  8. I find facebook useless for jobs, but twitter is amazing. I have had 3 jobs the past week from there.

    Twitter is great because its an open forum so you'll get exposure in from of people looking for your types of conversation. If you're getting plenty of public replies who want to buy your services then others will notice this busyness and enquire for their own needs.

  12. Nice one partho, what's your strategy for finding clients from Twitter? What do you think it is that makes them want to message you?

    I have a personal profile and a designer profile on Facebook. I find important to separate these two life aspects; it avoids undesired invasions of private life.
     
  14. Yes... I can imagine. Had some bad experiences then? Care to share? :D

    You know, I think that today it is not even a problem of "not showing you drinking a beer to a potential employer." It is more that there are weirdos who want to look into your business. I envy all the free time they have. My personal account doesn't show anything "compromising" because being edgy is just not part of my personality. But human mind can create monsters where there aren't any, if you know what I mean.
     
  16. Yeah, certainly know what you mean!
    Good call.

    I've got to get back into the whole social media thing but harking back to another thread "Behance".
    It publishes to Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin for you which is nice. :D

    I personally use facebook to promote anything since I feel that it is most widely used by organizations and people so you can can achieve good results.
