Portuguese are creative: poets, designers and curators.
Last week Jacob and I attended the UserVoice Summit. We’re the team that has responded if you’ve ever reached out to us via our Support Center, Twitter or elsewhere. And this was a great event for us to connect with other people working in customer care.
We heard leaders speak from amazing companies and organizations about streamlining process, scaling support, and just sounding human in communications (something we aim for). It was an opportunity to take stock and think about how we support the about.me community.
If you haven’t yet, be sure to stop by our Support center. It includes frequently asked questions but also tips and tricks for making the most of your about.me page. Additionally we gather product ideas and use the features voted on to help determine things that get prioritized to work on.
At the Summit we were even recognized for closing out requests and reports in the forum, which is truly an award for the whole team here! They work hard to address issues and include features into updates to allow our team to provide great support.
If you have any feedback regarding support here or have things you’d like to see us doing, please let us know! We love hearing your ideas.
For this week’s inspiration, check out these pages from scientists, engineers, space cadets and amateurs who work in space discovery and travel programs.
So you’ve created an awesome page, drafted a page-turning biography, connected a few services – now what? Here are some tips for making the most out of your about.me page after completion.
First, add your personalized about.me URL to your email signature! You can get rid of images that might not load or extra links, and instead point to the one spot online all about you.
Now that your page is complete, let your friends, followers and fans know! Share it to Twitter, Pinterest and more to get your first visitors easily. Then, add your page URL to your profiles at those services. It gives potential followers the context of who you are and what you’re about with one click.
Finally, for all of your offline contacts, score some complimentary about.me cards.
