My social media project was using Facebook to promote my photography business. I had a Facebook page started that I keep up with to post events and promotions. There were a few clients I gained from using the site, but they were more through family and friends on the list.Sadly it remains that way. There is a way to create a business or community page which I wasn't familiar with. Something else I didn't think about is that people may not search for local businesses on Facebook. When I search for a business I use Google first. I follow businesses through recommendations from friends.You have to let customers know they can follow you on social media sites using chicklets on your site. The photography sites that I found succesful used Facebook incorporate their page on their websites.I learned that Facebook is great way to network with other proffesionals in the field and have clients leave testimonials. For me this was a great learning experience. It is something I can definately put into practice today.
