Go and try and sell a cheap beat-up pickup truck to a millionaire. Nope, of course, he’s not going to do that. Because it’s a waste of time and efforts. A millionaire is not gonna buy a pickup truck when they can afford to buy a Mercedes.

This is something clients can rely on, and it’s also really memorable to everyone else. – nose points is sort of a gray area as a personal preference to an extent, but yeah, just use social media for business.

Aside from your private social media accounts, however, do add a touch of personality to your business accounts, so maybe just like, take a selfie of yourself with your work or make a gif of you creating something or maybe just a picture of you headed on a trip somewhere, but do add a touch of personality to you, some of your business posts, and I do say some because you don’t want to overdo it on a business account and you don’t want to seem like a narcissist. If you’re a business, it’s not a place to show off your life. And, yes, Of course, themes, you’re going to want to have a super established theme throughout the entire graphic design career from social media to your logo to email newsletters to everything in your business that needs a theme.
