I hope you are all doing well. Recently I have started using social media in a more professional way to promote my services as a translator.
I opened an Instagram business account for starters. I must admit that although I am not a huge fan of social media, I have rather enjoyed creating new content every day to post on this account. I thought I would not find enough material to publish, but it is incredible how many tools you can find to help you do this.
I have been using apps like Canva and Later. I especially love Canva! They offer so many amazing designs and they are so easy to edit and use! You can visit my account @translation_expert
And, although I started the account in order to get more clients, and therefore, more work, it has also been a great way to connect with colleagues around the world! I still haven’t really found new clients, but I know it takes time to get your brand to be truly noticed and I have been at it less than a month.
So, my journey will continue…and shall I dare to use Facebook? Only time will tell 🙂 but I’d love to hear your comments about how social media is working for you, and any pointers you may have.
Have a wonderful day!
