Leave your virtual business card on the web...and promote yourself !!!

Not everyone has gotten a website of their own. And even if they do, it is often not updated, or is hard to make changes to, or has the perennial problem of many websites, namely TMI - too much information.

However, I have seen that a blog could be an ideal place to let people know who you are, and what you are upto. It is your virtual business card, and one that can be readily updated. A blog as your business card should be succinct and visually appealing. Be sure to have widgets that people can click onto if they should want more information about you. So links to your LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook profiles could be placed on your virtual business card blog. Be sure leave a way for people to contact you, which could be via email, text messages, phone, a tweet, ping, or any other way that works best for you. Consider leaving your virtual business card when you reach out to people on the web, leave comments for others, give a review on Amazon, or any other place in cyberspace.
