Hat tip to my colleagues Averill Buchanan and Wendy Toole for alerting me to about.me.
This is a sharp little platform that enables you to create a 1-page website in minutes.
If you already have a website then this is just another tool with which to advertise yourself online. If, however, you've not got round to building a website and are a little nervous about taking the plunge, or you're pushed for time, then about.me may be just the ticket.
The screenshot below shows how I designed mine. I used my brand colours to make it recognizable.
It takes only minutes to input the basics using the toolboxes, so if you're a little nervous with technology there's no need for concern. It's simpler than setting up a Facebook or LinkedIn profile in my opinion ... easy to navigate and edit, and no intrusive adverts or messaging that I can see so far.
