Number thirteen of our weekly interviews in which we discover how real businesses are making Social Media work for them. Please meet Narjas Carrington-Windo from iNKLiNGS

Who are you and what do you do?

I am a ‘creative’.  I studied architecture and eventually became a graphical designer.  I am passionate about branding.  I think branding identifies who we are and what makes us tick.  I am a teacher at heart and in my business I help small businesses communicate more effectively with their target audience through the use of visuals.  I do this by designing or revamping their branding to deliver their message in a clear way.  I often start with the business card of a business to make sure that it reflects the brand of the business as well as communicating the correct message.

How do you use Social Media?

I enjoy blogging and blog most days about what I’m thinking and designing.  I share my blog on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn.  I love Twitter as the 140 character limit distils the message.  I also enjoy the social aspect of Twitter.  I have a Facebook page and a LinkedIn profile. I use Pinterest as a way of sharing design and information with others – I create a scrap board on Pinterest to illustrate my ideas.  On a personal level I also use Foursquare to promote other businesses.  Like many others I haven’t yet got to grips with Google+ but I do know people that say it is the best of the lot.

Can you share a Personal Success Story?

Blogging is definitely working.  Since I have been regularly blogging, I have been getting more enquiries.  Perhaps, more importantly for me, I get a great deal of personal satisfaction from creating my blog.  I find that being able to write my thoughts has increased and focused my creativity.

I have had referrals and enquiries on Twitter and I also use it to get information for my own needs and to talk about other people

Can you give our readers a top tip?

Twitter is like a fine wine – it grows better with age!  Have a go with Twitter, experience it, give it a chance and it will start to bear fruit.
