What do you like best?

It allows promoting the products or services offered by my company through a web page, thus increasing its reach. Its use is very intuitive, which makes it a very simple tool to use, in addition to the fact that it is not necessary to install additional programs on your computer is very beneficial, since we can do everything from the browser. Another point in its favor is the fact that we should not worry about uploading the information we want to see reflected on our page, since the system does it automatically and without so many inconveniences. The process of creating new campaigns is very simple and uncomplicated, where thanks to the step-by-step wizard you can create the pages you want to display without so much complication. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In general, the platform works quite well, the only drawback it presents is that currently the basic plan is very restrictive, so if you want to use all the benefits of this platform it is mandatory to hire a pro service to access more functions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It was used as an additional tool to the curriculum to promote the services that I offer as a professional, where I could also link my portfolio to it, in such a way that just by sharing the link that this tool provides me with all the people who have access To the link you can see my contact information and my work done, so that if you are interested in my work you can contact me by this means.

What do you like best?

I have had various experiences with about.me if it is true that it has many really cool functions such as being able to link your resume there and place a direct link on my main page so that more people can view it and get more clients interested in our services I also like it its design since it is very simple and attractive in addition to having predictive text that helps you improve your presentation so that more people can come to see you if that part up there is great we also had bad experiences because when I had a problem technical support I did not give myself the attention I needed, they did not answer my questions or when they did, it was too late since they made me wait even weeks for something that could be solved in a couple of minutes Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In addition, I would love for their technical service and customer service to improve since they are really terrible, I would love them to include more templates or to let the profiles be more creative, so a little more of our personality would be in them and therefore they would be more striking for our potential clients Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It's a good simplified, low resolution storefront for your business. I haven't used it as an individual or freelancer, but as a strong authority profile for my business.

It's really easy to use and super fast to set up, they are also coming up with additional features and options and you can link all your profiles and catalogs from there directly. This means you can have a high authority profile centralized with all your links. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

They are a bit pushy on the upgrading pop-ups. It's normal, they need to monetize their platform. Also a bigger variety of templates would be appreciated. Other than that, it pretty much does the job. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I really recommend having a page on About.me, at least start with their free offer and then see if it fits your business requirements. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having high domain authority profiles is hard, and they are vital for the visibility of your business. About.me allows us to have a quality page with all our other profiles linked there. We can refer customers to this page for more information, and the page from about.me is easy to find on google. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I was able to grow my client base and generate better-qualifed leads. I usually use Linkedin to generate leads, but I was able to find better leads on about.me Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The interface is very easy to use for customization. I originally created an About.me page to centralize all of my social media accounts and to include a personalized blurb about the hobbies I have. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not think I got enough traffic to my page to warrant continued use. I ended up deleting my About.me since I did not see any benefit from using another publicized platform (in addition to the other social media accounts I have). I am also not in an industry where I would need to promote myself in such a way by using personal websites. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Good for personal branding for those who are more aggressive with putting their name out there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When recruiters would contact me I would send them my About.me link, and I included it in my email signature as well. About.me is overall another tool in the branding tool box, but if you are not selling yourself, it doesn't have much added value. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

For someone with no prior web experience, I found about.me to very easy to use and customize. All the changes I made were fast and didn't need HTML knowledge. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Sometimes the website would have a glitch and the formatting would be altered for some devices (specifically phones). A quick refresh usually fixed it. Happened a few times. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Utilize it as a blog/introduction for students to learn more. We are able to update it constantly with new information and make it visually appealing for students by adding photos, videos, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
