ItsMyURLs is Now For Dummies!

We are honored to be featured in Joshua Waldman's book "Job Searching With Social Media For Dummies 2nd Edition".

ItsMyURLs is mentioned in chapter 11, as one of the valuable tools that will help you in your job search hunting.  The book just came out this past week and I was lucky enough to get a reviewers copy sent to myself by Joshua and the Publisher.

This isn't the first book that mentions our services, but it's probably the best so far.  This book is great for anyone looking for a job, or for those of you who are looking for some guidelines on how to job search and have a digital presence this day and age.  The paper resume is dying quickly, you need to know the stuff in this book if you want to have an edge in your job search.  Some of the tricks and techniques in this book literally let you see jobs before they are posted on big sites like monster, indeed, etc.

You can grab a hard copy (which I recommend) at any major book retailer, or grab a digital copy via amazon for your tablet, computer, etc by clicking on the book cover below.

How To Add Your Vine Profile Link To Your ItsMyURLs Profile

Currently it takes a few steps to add your Vine Profile link to your ItsMyURLs link list.  Once Vine makes it easier with a direct web URL, you won't have to do this.  For now, this works and if you want to make a link that people can click on and get to your Vine profile, this is the best way!  Let's get started, first we need to figure out your Vine ID number (Vine profile link).

1. Finding Your Vine Profile Link And Copying It.

Open the Vine app on your mobile device, go to your own profile by selecting "profile" from the top drop down menu.

Next, select "settings" from your profile page.

ItsMyURLs QR Code

We get a lot of questions about the QR Code feature that we offer, this post should explain just about everything.  Trust me, it's a great way to get others to find you on all of the sites listed on your IMU profile, it's innovative and we are the only company to offer the feature quite like this.

First off, the question that some of you may have is, what is this barcode on my IMU profile??  It's called a QR (Quick Response) code, and it can be scanned with a mobile device (use one of the many free QR scanning apps in the app store, or Google goggles for android).  In most cases these codes are scanned with your mobile device, then take you to some kind of promotional advertisement, video, or other marketing type page.  It's definitely cool that you don't have to type in a link on your phone to go to a web page.

So what happens when someone scans your ItsMyURLs QR code that comes with your profile??  Anyone that scans your QR code instantly gets to the mobile version of your profile, so that they can choose to connect with you on any of the profile links that you have listed!  Did you get that?....I said, all anyone has to do to connect with you on Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, Pinterest, etc is to pull out there phone and scan a barcode!  Pretty cool stuff.

To expand on the idea, you can place your QR code on your business cards, marketing materials, billboards, banners, and anything else that you think people could scan from.  You can see how many people have scanned your QR code, and from what region of the country and world at anytime by logging into your profile and clicking on "view analytics" from your dashboard area.

So the concept of the one click, and now ONE SCAN to get someone to access all of your social profiles and links is included for free in our service to all of our users!  Try this, pull up your ItsMyURLs profile on your smartphone, scroll to the bottom where your QR code is located, have a friend open a QR app on their phone and have them scan it right from your screen....presto!   

Like the late, great Steve Jobs would say.....Oh, ONE MORE THING.  We also offer an upgrade to the traditional black and white QR code, to a custom branded one with your own image inside of it!  The ultimate branding tool this day and age, a code that people can scan, with a picture of yourself, your logo, or anything that you want inside of it!  To upgrade, you can login to your ItsMyURLs account, click on "brand QR" from the dashboard panel.  It is a paid feature, but well worth it, we need to design your image inside of your QR code as well as test it on many different smartphones and QR apps to make sure it scans great.  We have some really great stuff planned in the near future for your QR code.

Here are some sample QR codes that we've made for our customers:

Keep in mind that you won't be able to scan any of these unless you click on one of them and have it by itself on the page, otherwise your QR reader will get confused if there are more than one QR code in view.

Dashboard - Adding Your Bio, Account Info, and Changing Your Password

In this post I will explain 2 different dashboard tiles, the "Edit Profile" and "Account Settings" on ItsMyURLs.  They are pretty much self-explanatory, but I will eventually get through every dashboard tile option.

Edit Profile:

To edit your profile info, select the Edit Profile and the popup will come up with the profile info options in it.

In the "profile info" tab which is the default tab you can enter your full name, date of birth (this helps us show relevant ads on your profile), gender, and location.

After you finish that tab, click on the "biography" tab and enter some info about yourself.  People see this info when they go on your profile and click on the "user info" tab.

Account Settings & Change Password:

Select the "account info" tile in order to pull up these settings.

  • The first box shows your current email address on file.  It's important that you keep this updated as this is the email address that we will send you a password recovery email as well as our email newsletter.
  • Below that are two input boxes where you can change your password.  Just enter the same password twice and click save in order to change it.
  • The final option is for "email notifications", it's a toggle button that you can turn on or off.  This is not to disable our newsletter.  This is built in for future use of our soon to be released notifications center (hush hush stuff....stay tuned).

Have a great weekend.

Dashboard - Adding, Editing, and Deleting a Link To Your ItsMyURLs Profile

I'm going to explain some of the "Dashboard" features in our new ItsMyURLs 2.0 layout in the next few blog posts.  This will be the first one, the most important one, how to add links!

First things first, in order to toggle between your profile and the dashboard, click on the arrow next to your username in the top right menu bar, and select the page you want to view from the dropdown menu.

Now to add links, from your dashboard select "Add A Link".  

Next, choose the appropriate link type from the top menu bar inside the popup menu.  For most links you leave the default, but for links to your AIM, Skype, Instagram, and Email, make sure you select them from the menu.  

Once you select the correct type, fill in the two boxes below with whatever it prompts you to and click "add a link" to save it.

After you add a link you can edit, delete, or sort any of your links by selecting the "edit, delete, sort links" option from the dashboard.  To delete or edit a link, click on the link you want to delete or edit and a popup will come up prompting you to make edits and save it, or click on the red delete button to delete it.

To change the sort order of your link list in the way that it shows in your profile, click and drag the arrow next to the link you want to move and drag it to wherever you want on the list.

That's it for today folks, I'll explain the user info and edit account options in the next post.

Here's my profile after adding my Instagram link.
