These days we are expected to have profiles in so many places online. Sharing all the links in our email signature – not to mention trying to fit them all on a tiny business card – has become difficult. Good news! There is an easy-to-use, free alternative.
Enter about.me, an online brand management portal that works like a virtual business card. User pages are designed to share links to all of their social media profiles on one clean, easy to navigate page. Check out some examples by visiting https://about.me/.
Setting up an about.me page is super easy; users don’t need a lot of technical know-how. In a short time, you can create a simple, yet striking, online business card that includes a bio (or description of your business), a graphic image, and links to online profiles.
So, rather than listing all of your social media profiles, you can simply add something like this to your email signature block or business card:
“Find me online at about.me/pattirowlson”.
Isn’t that much better?
