Social media etiquette

Social media etiquette

Tuesday, 2 May 2017

For those of you who have been following my 2017 leap into social media, I am increasingly questioning, “What is the etiquette on here?”. I am finding LinkedIn a great resource and some of the articles are both relevant and motivating to my work. When scrolling down recent notifications, I’ll find someone has put a post looking for a graphic designer/wants a logo designed/needs help with their branding... “That’s me!” I think and add my details. Two days later I see another 50 graphic designers have had their details added too! Do I message again? What is the etiquette? Equally, I am part of a FaceBook Group which does much the same thing. I’ll see someone has asked for the details of a graphic designer and someone I know in the group has had their name put forward. Do I add mine as well, or is this extremely bad mannered/cut throat/dog eat dog?? Never wanting to offend anyone, but also wanting to put myself forward with my great portfolio, 25+ years experience, amazing testimonials etc etc what is the best way to approach these situations? I really don’t know so any advice would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks in advance, Natalie (amazing graphic designer!).

We've all heard the words 're branded' being mentioned, and it sounds a very costly affair, but quite often it needn't be. A company could have altered its business model so the branding gets addressed. In a lot of cases it...
