twitter-bird-mosaicGoogle started it.  Facebook capitalized on it.  LinkedIn got on board, and now Twitter is following suit.

All these social networks offer ways to advertise your services.  Twitter’s maiden offering is a new self-service ad platform.  ‘Great article complete with how-to directions from HubSpot: HERE’S HOW IT WORKS.

Since serious money can be involved, you might want to seriously consider a move to spend advertising dollars marketing yourself on social media.  Each platform has its own strengths and weaknesses.

Having offered that caveat, I must say I’ve been impressed with the results that some voice-actors have gotten with SMART use of social media ads.  One voice talent has literally built his business 2-3 times its size from a year ago with savvy FaceBook advertising.

Such moves are not for the faint of heart.  You can, of course, tackle this yourself with oodles of study time which you probably don’t have, or hire a consultant to at least guide you through the basics.  Others will do this for you, for a fee.  There are a CRAZY number of people who claim to know how to do this for you.  Be careful!
