Remember it is better to focus on getting one set up before moving on to the next media site. It is better to do this once and that copy and paste to other sites keeping everything consistent. If you update one profile or profile picture you must update them all.
Your bio is where people find out all about you. Wright something that describes you and you’re business as if your promoting yourself and your brand.
Posting on your pages must be constant, so as an artist you will want to post your work with a short description that links to where your followers can find out more. Once you have your audience they will look for your new work and where you’re showing your work.
