I know from reading several different threads over the last few weeks that there are quite a lot of us who have recently taken the plunge into promoting via social media. (Or are teetering on the edge waiting for a shove!!) Some may be new to Folksy and selling and some not. I have been on Folksy a few years now but have only in the last couple of weeks joined Facebook & Twitter and also started using Craftjuice. I have also just signed up to British Crafters. (No wonder my head wants to explode!)
Anyway I wondered if any of you fellow newbies to any of the various social media and promotion sites would be interested in starting a thread for moral support and help!! (And hopefully those of you who know what you are doing can pop in and offer a suggestion or two!!) I know there have been a lot of things I’ve struggled with that someone else has probably figured out. I’ve just had a bit of an experiment with boosting a post and would love to know what others think about it!
There was an earlier thread about this book:
Which of course I can’t find now - the thread I mean! But I have found it really helpful and still have a lot to read. There is masses of info out there I know, including Folksy blogs but sometimes I find there is too much information and some of it conflicting! And there are only so many hours in the day and I want to be painting !!
So I’ll kick off with a question. I started out with my fb & twitter accounts linked but was getting fed up with seeing half a sentence and a link to fb on my twitter account. How interesting can that be!! What does everyone else do, link or not??
