Hey you! Staring into that computer screen won’t do you any good! Get out there! Do some shit! Use exclamation points in your everyday life! It works for us! As always though, we know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Stop using exclamation points!” And, “Yes, I do need to get out there, but where do I start?” Well, we’re glad you asked, unsure non-exclamation user. Why are we glad? Because Stan (http://branddna NULL.blogspot NULL.com/)‘s got a free tip for you and it comes cheap. Very cheap…
Last week I came across an interesting way for young creatives to promote themselves.
Twitter (http://twitter NULL.com).
UK based Graham Watson offered a free trial of his services via Twitter.
Now although this sounds good, he only has 66 people following him on Twitter. Very few of whom would be in a position to give him a job.
So why was his use of Twitter so clever?
Because Twitter is a social medium and all about sharing.
So even though I have no idea who Graham is, or where he works, his tweet appeared in my Twitter stream.
Because one of his friends follows me on Twitter and shared his message with me.
As you can imagine, I was so impressed I shared it too, both on Twitter and on my blog (http://branddna NULL.blogspot NULL.com/2009/07/creative-twitter NULL.html ).
As a result, Graham’s offer of a free trial of his services reached several thousand people.
Which is definitely something worth thinking about. Don’t you think?
