Spice up your mainpage with card.ly
- 16 Comment
How many times do you have to add, upload or link to your online communities? If you’re anything like me, it’s quite often. There are a few platforms out there which allow you to create what is essentially an online business card, but card.ly is my new favorite. The set up process was easy and there were 27 background options (and that’s just in the free version). I was also able to grab the embed code and share directly on my blog (see below).
Even if you don’t use card.ly, you should consider creating a place to streamline all of your feeds and sites. Why? It will make your online life a bit easier, visually shows your online presence and makes a nice addition anytime you need a single link to share in a blog comment.
What I like most:
- A short and personalized URL address (http://card.ly/prsarahevans)
- Social media-friendly look and feel
- Ability to add personal and professional contact information
- 140-character bio
I’m a fan of the free site, but don’t know if I’d spend the money to go pro (even though it’s $3 a month). Do you use card.ly or a service like it? What else would you like to see in an online business card and/or mainpage?
Card.ly allows you to have your own mini business card profile, without needing to have any design or programming skill. We will host it for you also. Most parts of the site are free as well. Developed by: @olivierturbis, @giggsey and @harknesslabs.
