Redefining on-line identity with your personalised about.me page!
Ok let me ask you a simple question, how it will be if you get a chance to integrate your entire on-line presence in a single page? That’s where about.me comes into picture. It not only lets you create your personal page but it helps you to integrate your entire online presence in a single page. Now when you will tell someone about you just give the URL of your about.me page. That’s it. You don’t have to mention all profiles of yours. You may have a dozen of social media profiles but now all can be organised in a single page.
Now the ultimate thing what makes it so special ! Here are my observations:
The entire YOU in One page! That’s the difference
What do you think about complete identity means? I think it will be a place where you can show everything related to you including who you are, what you do, your likes, dislikes, achievements, social media profiles and lots more because there are so many things which defines a complete person. But all of these in a single page! That’s exactly what about.me provides.
Example. In your about.me page you can show your name, profession, your short biography, where you live, your education, workplace not only that you can also connect your social media accounts directly through apps, which helps visitor to get a better glimpse on you and your social media activity. Isn’t it cool?
Simplicity/ Minimalistic approach matters a lot
Whether it is in design or manageability, simplicity is a quotient which attracts users a lot. That’s where about.me excels. You can customise the design (including colour, font, background and many more) according to your choice from it’s easy to use dashboard which is the central control panel of your account. The dashboard provides lot of features like checking notifications, editing, page stats and many more in a simple interface.
Promote your skills and find target audience
One of the main reasons to create a centralised about page of you is to attract your audience more. In whatever profession you are for example you may be a blogger who wants to bring more visitor to your blog, you may be a job seeker who want to attract employers/ clients to your skills or you are an author who has written a book which is on sale in amazon, so you want to bring more interested buyers from your profile. Your about.me page make all these lot easier.
All of these can be done by an interesting feature called ‘Create Spotlight’ which helps you to show your skills or bring your skills to the spotlight. So just select create spotlight option and you will get a page to create your spotlight. You just have to select a specific option according to your need and give some necessary details and click publish. Now guess what ? The spotlight you created will display on the top of your about.me page.
Share and spread your voice
What is the benefit to have a online public profile page if you can’t share it to your existing friends and followers to other social media channels easily. It’s where you will like about.me. You can share your about.me page via popular social media like Facebook, Twitter & linkedIn. You can also share your page via email.
Not only that it gives you more exciting facilities to attract more visitors. You can add your about.me page link to your personal email signature. Now when you mail someone that person will get all the details of you by following the link. Beside this you can tell the world about you by creating your personalised about.me visiting card. It’s free but it includes a small fees as shipping cost. You can also mention your about.me page in different social media profiles by creating link.
Get details of your visitors from Page Statistics
Will it be cool if you can’t find who have visited your profile, from where they have visited whether they are from search engines or social media channels. For this purpose there is a section called Page Statistics under your dashboard. It shows how many person viewed your profile from where they have visited, in which links they have clicked and many more analytical data regarding your page.
Still want more?
All of the above mentioned facilities you will get in free of cost. If you need more there is also an upgrade option which adds more personalisation option to your profile.
If you upgrade then you will get a custom .me domain, Email address and many more exciting features including all your free features.
If you ask me to draw a conclusion then from an user’s perspective I must say, it really gives you an integrated on line Identity.
