While social media platforms like Instagram can be a great way to attract potential clients to your freelance makeup business, if you rely solely on Instagram, you are missing out on potential bookings. Not everyone is on instagram!
Many of your potential clients will be using Google to find a makeup artist – so it makes sense to have a presence on Google.

So when a potential client types “makeup artist” into their Google search, it will show them a list of artists near them.
