Did you know that you can find work and opportunities, press and new clients all on Twitter??
I used to despise Twitter, but I think that came mostly from fear. It can indeed be an overwhelming site, but once you play around with it a bit, you can get the swing of it quite easily.
Start following magazines and blogs you like; when you see posts and pictures that you like, retweet them and start a conversation. After a while, you should Tweet them directly and say, ‘hey, I have been following you for a while and love what you do! See my artwork here…’
You can also spot jobs and opportunities/competitions you won’t see anywhere else on Twitter!
So, if you are feeling a bit stuck and need to make new online connections, get to Twitter!
