Back in 2011, my good friend Chris Talbot was writing an article about social media marketing. Chris asked me for my thoughts on the subject. At first I was puzzled; why me? At that time I was very new to the subject of social media marketing. I did not consider myself a guru of the field. I took on a new role at my previous employer, in figuring out how to jumpstart our presence online, beyond the website. I pretty much dived into the subject headfirst learning about each social platform; how they worked, posted a comment, what kind of audience did it attract?
Years later I followed up with Chris, how that article went that he interviewed me for then. Knowing what I know now about social media marketing, I’ve learned so much more. He had informed me it was for Freshbooks.com blog. My 1st reaction was “HA! I use that service. What a coincidence.” If you’re not aware of what Freshbooks is, it’s a cloud based account software and service. For my freelancing purposes it’s been a big help just with managing the invoices and payments, and with my work tracking. The fact that I can time track using the iOS app and generate an invoice from my phone, it’s been a big help. If you’re a small business or a freelance designer as well, definitely look into using Freshbooks. It’ll keep you organized with all the paper work and tracking your expenses.
