A great idea for online networking using LinkedIn

Posted by bizcoachjason on October 10, 2007

Here is a suggestion from a member of MyLinkedinPowerForum, which is dedicated to helping LinkedIn users.  I am a huge fan of LinkedIn for professional networking, and I think this is a terrific idea!

My own LinkedIn profile can be found at: http://www.linkedin.com/in/distinctivecoaching (and now also at http://linkedin.DistinctiveCoaching.com)

Here is the post and suggestion from Victor:

I want to share an idea that has been very useful for my “personal branding”. I have an address http://linkedin.victorperl.com that forwards directly to my www.linkedin.com/in/victorperl page. It looks great in business cards and it costs less than $10 a year!This is how I did it. Go to godaddy and buy a .com address for your name for $9 a year (it can be .net, .org; .info costs only $3). Then make a subdomain that forwards to your linkedin profile address.

Instructions in
http://help.godaddy.com/article.php?article_id=415&topic_id=
In 24 to 48 hours you should access to your LI profile from your
http://linkedin..yourname.com.

Also, you can make google manage your email address and have a me@yourname.com (that you access through gmail). It looks great in business cards, too.

I hope this works for you. You can use a different domain name registrar, but I only have
experience with godaddy.

Thank you!

Victor
