Are They Reading ABOUT YOU? How ABOUT.ME?

By
Real Estate Agent with Solutions Real Estate CA DRE #01490977

How about a quick profile you can customize with a neat photo and personal stuff about yourself, then link to it so others can read about you.

Use About.Me for your free profile - be creative, and as detailed or as simple as you want. This is not the time to ramble on about all your awards, specialities, accomplishments, and real estate stuff, but a time (my opinion) to get personal and share some tidbits that folks might not kbnow about you.

Here's mine

 Relocation Dude About Me Business Cards from Moo.com

Check out my about.me profile!

I also got some free business cards (50) through Moo, too.

Relocation Dude About Me Business Cards from Moo.com

Visit About.Me to set up YOUR profile, if you haven't already done so.

 

Here are some thoughts on how to use this:

Get a Specialty Business Card

Create a postcard to mail or use as a handout at networking meetings

Add the link to your Email Signature

Add the link to the Sidebar of your ActiveRain Blog OR in your Signature

Add the link to your AC Profile Page

Create stickers using a unique URL
