Enthuse.me isn’t venturing into new ground but they are combining design and simplicity to get people excited about building and sharing professional outlines online. In contrast to other landing pages like Zerply or about.me, Enthuse.me users can pick the best pieces of content that really show off their expertise or knowledge. Breathing out of the “Silicon Roundabout” in London, the startup jumped out in public Beta displaying single-page profiles recently for entrepreneurs, freelancers, small business owners, and other self-sustaining individuals that want to use the web to showcase their skills.
You create your own page by selecting a username and connecting for signup via LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook or manually. Add your profile avatar of choice and fill in a mini-bio describing abilities or whatever you think will grab the attention of possible viewers.
The elegant one-page profiles are made useful by selecting and embedding content, creating original content and connecting your social networks to display links and statistics. Using the various tools offered in the Enthuse.me platform you then add even more content from the web or upload items you think add that advantage specific for your page. This could be past written blog posts, press coverage, photos, videos, documents, or notes.
Results of your created profile page are minimalistic in design but easy to follow by removing the heavy imagery options on the other creation sites. The company plans to add more features as it grows, but for now it’s using clean design and content selection to target those looking for a new way to share their skills.
