How to Promote Yourself on Social Media


At SF Weekly, Anna Pulley doles out advice on social media self-promotion. She reveals how to gain exposure without feeling silly or guilty, reminding us that social media is a community, and it helps to treat it as one.

“People want to share things that have value, either to them personally or their careers or for some greater purpose, like a charity or cause.

Wit and cleverness get you in the door at some places, but helping others succeed provides the most return on your investment.”
