Sarah Needleman profiled a woman who started her own business.
Instead of setting up a business website she got a free online business card at DooID.com
It points you to her blog, Linkedin page and Twitter profile.
Great idea. Most websites are garbage.
They are so full of fluff that it's often hard to tell what the person does and the pompous way they write about themselves in the 3rd person is nauseating.
Blogs are less awful but not many people are going to keep them up so they are not for everyone.
I've been experimenting with About.me and some other landing pages and found them quite interesting.
You could accomplish the same thing by forwarding your business URL to a Linkedin page or a VirtualCV but these landing pages are a bit more pretty.
