Social media?

Was at the Plaza show when Bill Ruple was mentioning about the completed projects he'd post up on his Facebook page. Had me curious how the social media side is for you and the amount of maintenance-updates that are implemented.

Are you find this a good means to display your works? Any tips, suggestions using social media?

Was thinking about this and had also posted in other forums for input. The replies varied so it was a back-forth scenario about using social media to reach those potentially interested. For some I've seen that the exposure does promote sales, others it doesn't do much. This is open on how one presents themselves which will play a big role in attracting people.

One of the local guys does clean work and he places short v##eos of his projects on his Instagram. He's doing well that there is a flow of orders to keep him going.

I've had fairly good luck with posting on different social media sites. I've been using Facebook and Reddit for the most part with links to my website. I also found that there is a lot of interest on more art focused pages on Facebook.
