The image above is from About.me which is a place to pull together different spaces or online services. This page belongs to Lou McGill and also links to the graphics on her printed business card. This helps to present a coherent view to your audience. As you can see the page pulls together Lou’s places on Flickr, a personal blog, Twitter, Behance, Youtube, and Linked in – as well as listing key websites.
It can be tempting to try a range of different services to connect with your audience, and very challenging to know which one will work for you. Sometimes it can be best to focus your energies on the place that feels most useful for you, as it can be difficult to keep several different social media services going – although many do allow you to link them – so if you post on Facebook, you can automatically post on Twitter aswell. We will be providing some guidance about different services and hints about getting the most out of them.
