“if you search for a service provider’s name and you can’t find it online, that business is bound to go under, everyone is online and so should be your business.” Ciaran Connolly, Co-Founder of ProfileTree
Nairobi, Kenya (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
All brides and groom want to remember every detail from their wedding and capture every emotion to cherish forever. Ben Kiruthi discovered his passion for photography very simply by taking fun shots of his friends and family. He talks to ProfileTree exclusively.
Speaking of the advantages of being his own boss, Ben said “The working hours are flexible…The downside to this is that you are absolutely 100% responsible for any of your failures, mistakes & losses. You tend to overwork yourself & also it is very tricky drawing a line between your personal & working life.”
When asked about the internet and social media, Ben said “Internet is my main marketing media. About 80% of my business comes from the internet…I have also a Facebook page, twitter account & also a google+ account. All these I use to leverage my business, connect with existing and new clientele as well as market and sell my personal and business brand.”
Ciaran Connolly, Co Founder of Profile Tree stresses the role of social media for any type of business “if you search for a service provider’s name and you can’t find it online, that business is bound to go under, everyone is online and so should be your business.”
