1) Experiment, experiment, experiment Natasha got started with experimentation. In 2005, she began video blogging and saw that people responded to her content. Afterward, she got interested in MySpace and Facebook. With almost 5,000 followers, she has now become an avid Twitter user.
Experimentation helps you keep up with changing industry landscapes. As Ben Rowe commented on Natasha’s Mashable post, “Twitter mightn’t be the silver bullet for all artists. A blog, Flickr or Etsy page might not be either. But the artists who are out there trying these new tools are already miles ahead of the artists who aren’t.”
2) Set time for social media Make sure you are not overusing the social networking sites. “I try to set a time everyday to check all my different networks,” said Natasha. Twice a day, after waking up and before going to bed, she checks her Twitter replies. That helps her avoid habitually overusing the tool.
