Marketing... What's your plan?

© Tritooth ( Help)
So I have to market myself to get anywhere. I think I sort of have the taking pictures part of the photo business down, but the business, i.e getting my name out there and getting hired, not so much.

I am sort of at a loss for what to do...... i got myself a myspace page and plan on getting a facebook page. I have also set up blogs at live journal and blogger, which I have to start adding to.

But does this really help? or are these just a giant waste of time?

Would I do better with more traditional marketing strategies? i.e bulk mailing, cold calling, local chamber?

What are your thoughts....... what is your experience?

So since you wrote this, how have you done, what worked, what didn't? I am just getting started (10 months in) and trying to get the word out. I emailed my portfolio to all the local news stations and also when I find a local bloger I email them too.

As a start to marketing myself on-line i joined something called squidoo, and put together something they have created called a lens.

There are other stock photographers on there and lots of information about pretty much anything.

This is the lens I made.

My wife also made one for my artwork. let me know what you think.
