Need to do some advertising - just looking for some general advice/tips

I need to drum up some more clients (RE/Commercial photography - maybe expanding into product/food photography).

Just wondering if anyone has any tips/advice so that maybe I can avoid a few pitfalls along the way.

I did previously spend some money on yahoo ads - for me it was a complete waste of money and their customer support was horrible. Spent a few hundred and literally got zero clients.

I think my biggest problem is that almost all of my customer feedback is on thumbtack. It's all good reviews, but I want to stop using thumbtack. They dont treat their customers very well and it's only getting worse.

I was thinking of spending a few dollars on both google and facebook. But my lack of reviews on either platform seems like an issue. And I'm not sure if i should have the ads direct people to my FB biz page, or my website.

Anyone have any general (or specific) advice/feedback? Is there another platform besides google or FB I should consider?
