John,

Unfortunately, people are not simply going to like your page because you've asked them to. Seeing as you're a business and not a movie, those who like your page are essentially testimonials more-so than fans.

While I quite like some of the work on your page, I don't have any first-hand experience in working with you, I've not seen you around the forums enough to build a persona around your username, and I have no other incentive or reason for liking your page.

I mean no disrespect, simply trying to put things into perspective.

Lastly, it certainly doesn't make me wish to help you when I see that you've spammed your links in the General Discussion forum too. Your work should speak for itself and your name would get around by word of mouth from previous clients...

Overall though, your profile looks good. Keep up the good work and I'm sure your Facebook page will be liked by many. Perhaps you should make the social media icons more obvious as I didn't even seen them until I specifically looked for them.

Thanks for the honest reply, much appreciated. I will take this into consideration now. Was just looking for feedback as I am a junior designer and haven't went to school yet for design so this is kind of to see what other people think of my work since I don't get alot of feedback now. Thank you tho I will try to not post in other sections.
