I got already around 10 new Clients that got to see my site coming from
AND, most interesting ... some of these Clients come from other
photographers who follow me, and that they told their Clients that I was the
"one" who could do what they need for their companies
So, it is a social thing, where everyone is in touch, talking about similar
interests ... mine is photography, so I get more professionals following me
Also I found old friends and old Clients too
It is a new way of being on the web
