If you’re new to freelance PR, or indeed any type of freelance work, and can’t afford to get your own website up and running, there are other options.

I’ve been experimenting with two websites – About.me and Flavours.me - where you can create your own homepage or ‘splash page’, and integrate all your social media in one place. This is ideal for anyone new to the freelance world who hasn’t yet got their own website.

Here’s my two tester pages I made:

http://about.me/manchesterisace

about.me/manchesterisace

http://flavors.me/manchesterisace

http://flavors.me/manchesterisace

As you can see both are very similar and just as easy to use. Both of these profiles only took me about 15 minutes but you could spend a lot longer faffing around with layout and images to make them look even better.

With Flavors.me, you can also upgrade for more options and also better link juice.

Definitely worth a look!
