    Sure. :)

    I believe Facebook is one of the best places to advertise your product. I say, go with a Facebook Page.

    Social Networking sites are the most visited pages in the internet aside from online stores/shops like ebay, amazon and etc.

    You can also try posting ads on a local online shop/store if ever there's one there in your city.

    i think, the other most visited networking sites are twitter, formspring, plurk & instagram ;)
    It's better that you focus on sites where photos are always in newsfeed of the homepage of users so you can make sure people get to see your designs

    1) Having a personal profile with subscribers is often just as effective as a fanpage, especially for your purposes. However a page does have more analytics.
    2) If you want me to jumpstart you with a few thousand audience and run your page let me know. Of course, it'll be for a price.

    I would say facebook can give your business a boost. I am pretty sure, there are people who are looking for your services in your local area.

    Also, try the local newspaper, give out leaflets, etc. It helps a little bit.

    I'd say do both. Promote your Facebook page on the profile, and promote it in other social media linking to the Facebook page/possible eventual website.

    promote your facebook page more than your profile becoz if your facbook page is very good optimized then it will automatically link direct to your profile.

    Facebook profile and page have their own advantages and disadvantages. The biggest disadvantage of having a profile is that you can only have a limited amount of friends (5000).
