Getting your work out there using Social Networks
They've got their foibles, at least as far as i'm concerned, but social networks can be a great tool for self promotion whether you're a photographer, designer or just want the world to see you.
I've been reluctant to set up a Facebook page for a while owing to copyright issues but today i finally decided to get one going. Within a few hours it's generated quite a few hits. Combining this with Flickr, Google+, Twitter, Tumblr and GHZ itself i've set up a nice circular for advertising myself and others. Using share buttons on flickr I can post to my much ignored Tumblr page, this then posts to my Twitter account which in turn posts back to my Facebook. It only takes a few clicks to get good coverage. Currently I generate about 20 hits within a few seconds.
Obviously I also like, favourite, and share other peoples work i enjoy which also usually generates hits back to one of my pages.
I'm aware this isn't anything new but I thought i'd at least detail all my pages here. Please feel free to add me. If you do drop me a note and i'll be sure to check your pages out.
As ever, if you wish to feature your work on GHZ all you have to do is ask. I've been less active than I wanted the last few months so I haven't invited many people in but i'm still open to suggestions.
Here I am, come say hello:-
Have a good day!
