Facebook page? Marketing strategies?pokie (1217 pencils) | Sun, 2013-05-12 12:19
As I've mentioned earlier, I have quit my corporate job which I had for the last 8 years, and have started teaching design and primarily, advertising. It allows me more time for my kids and after I get used to the teacher pace, I'm wanting to do more of my own illustration/graphic design work. Maybe some photography as well.
Without trying, I have gotten 3 freelance gigs in the last month or so. Wanting to keep the momentum going as I approach 3 months of not getting paid...
Do you guys have a facebook page for your design work? I have friends who are photographers who of course have a FB page, and then only 2 friends who are designers who have FB pages. One of which specializes in invitation design, so it makes sense for her to have a FB page. Others I know are more *fine art*ists so, naturally, they also have a FB page (and do GD on the side).
Now, I have one friend who just decided to get into freelancing and made a FB page.
I'm just wondering... should I have a FB page? Do you?
I obviously need to get an online portfolio going first (which I'm hoping to accomplish over summer break), business cards, an identity system of some sort.. but I feel like, aside from the photography, why would someone "like" my FB page, which would be more geared toward other businesses?
What strategies do you use to get the word out?
