Create a magnificent profile. Your profile is the first piece of information anyone will see concerning you or your business and it should be exceptional. Indicate as much detail as you can about what skills you have or what your business is about.
After putting your profile out there so clients can see what you or your business can offer, join a Facebook group. You can join one or create one that is specific to your niche. Remember if you create a group you will need to dedicate the time and expertise to work with the group. If it is your group questions and topics of your niche will be directed to you initially.
