Magntize – Introduce Yourself to the World

Disclosure note: Magntize is a subsidiary of Qmulus LLC which is co-owned by the editor of this site.

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably got business cards, a personal blog, a Twitter feed, and even a Facebook page. What you probably don’t have, though, is one site that gives a comprehensive overview of who you are as an individual. Whether you’re a freelance writer, a university professor, or a personal trainer, Magntize is a place to make your introduction to the world.

Instead of spending hundreds of dollars to buy a domain and design a website of your own, use Magntize to create a custom website within just a matter of minutes. Get started by filling in your basic information, inserting a few key words to describe yourself, and choosing a theme—Magntize offers enough unique options to fit your individual taste and personal style. Websites built with Magntize look clean and professional, so there’s no need to worry about building a site that looks homemade. And thanks Magntize’s integration with third-party sites, it’s easy to link directly to your other online accounts on Twitter, Vimeo, Flickr, and more.

For just $9 a month, you can upgrade to a Pro account, which gives you the option to chose your own domain, custom email forwarding, additional premium themes, and a personal RSS feed that brings all your online activities into one single stream. Magntize gives web users of all skill levels the ability to make professional, polished, and visually pleasing websites in just a matter of minutes, which is why it is a service that everyone should check out.

Practical Uses:

  • Set up a place to introduce yourself to the world
  • Advertise your freelancing services to clients
