• Have a clear plan – before creating your official account; you must know what exactly do you want from your page and work towards achieving your goals. Do not set a high goal instantly. Begin with small achievements initially and work on increasing those with time.
• The audience is all that matters – work on building your audience. Post the stuff which would attract the viewer to explore more about your services and hence engage in your services.
• Be active – keep updating your audience about the new services. Being a designer, you can share some pictures of your decor and design displays. Interact with the audience as much as you can. Answer their queries and engage with them.
• Target Posts – you should know what type of audience you are searching for and how will you turn the viewer into customers. For this, you need to know your audience and their needs well. You can share compelling posts on social media to target a particular section of people who are called ideal customers. You need to know their needs and offer them things according to their need. Hence, targeting them so that they cannot deny the deal and go ahead to avail it.
• Make use of tools – social media is a pocket-friendly way to advertise and expand your business. This can help save your time if you make proper use of the tools available. For example, you can post something and schedule it for a particular time so that it shows on your page from that specific time onwards. This way, you will be more active on social media. You can post the entire day’s post at a single time and schedule them. This way, you won’t need to post again and again and hence will save — a lot of time.
Designers keep on designing stuff frequently, and they need to advertise often too. Social media has made this hassle-free. Making the most out of the opportunity is entirely in your hands. You are free to frequently update stuff online, engage and build a relationship with customers and also you can keep track of people’s interest and target it to earn more profit.
Keep in mind to work more on quality and not on quantity. There is no use of posting twenty times a day and getting no or very few engagements. But if you post thrice but post the needed, the stuff which your ideal customers are interested in, you’ll gain benefit. Also if you post too much at a time, very few people can reach out to all of them.

Social media plays a significant role in promoting services be it redesign services or any other for that matter. all it requires is its intelligent usage and active participation.
