Why You Need a Personal Webpage

Want to promote your business or skill set to a potential client or employer? Creating a personal webpage is the way to go!

In this post, we’ll go over the reasons why you need a personal webpage to make you more competitive in your field.

 

Stand Out from the Crowd

A personal webpage is a perfect place to stand out from the crowd. Here, you can display your skills, projects you’ve built, or clients you’ve worked with in the past. 

Potential clients are always looking for what you can do. While you can tell them about it during an interview, showing them is a much better approach. Using a personal webpage acts exactly like an “About Me” website. It’s the best way to tell more about yourself if you don’t have the room for it on your resume. It’s also quick and easy to direct potential leads to it if you’re using a digital business card.

 

A More Dynamic Resume

A resume is nice to have, but it often fails to convey to the employer your personality as a person. With a personal webpage, you have the opportunity to show your personality and your brand. An employer will get to know you more through a webpage than a piece of paper lets on.

 

You Get to Customize What You Want Others to See

A resume follows a standard, dignified approach that is often dull and non-expressive. 

Although being professional is essential, you can still do that and express your brand on a personal webpage. That’s because a personal website allows you to customize what you want. 

You can add the colors associated with your brand or throw in some images and any other details you weren’t able to fit on your resume, business card, or in your 30-second pitch meeting. In the end, you can hold your head high with a professionally slick webpage that draws interest in what you do and gets your message across.

You get to decide what you want people to see about you and your brand.

 

You Can Share All of Your Social Media Links in One Place

Sometimes a resume or traditional business card fails to direct people to your social media profiles (if you’re hoping to do business that way). They can’t click on a link if they are using a hard copy. 

Imagine trying to manually type the URL from a piece of paper to a web browser. Not only is it tedious, but it’s annoying if the link isn’t short and memorable enough.

On your webpage, you can easily share all of your social media accounts in one place and make it easy for others to see.
