Getting your name out there is all about bragging about the work you just got or just finished or that award you just won. Don’t be afraid or too modest to share these accomplishments. You don’t have to send out a formal press release with everyone one of these milestones, a simple verbal pat on the back with a blog post or tweet can be just as powerful. The advantages are obvious, it’s a free or a very low cost method to get your name seen to hundreds of potential new clients. If you’re worried about a client being upset you shared info about the work, don’t be (unless you are under an NDA). A client knows the importance of getting their name out there just as much as you do and will probably be thrilled you are talking about the project. Bragging modestly about yourself without being self-centered gets people to learn more about you and it shows that you know how to market yourself. And at the end of the day, your work could be fabulous but without having a method of spreading the word about it, no one is going to notice.
