So what is this enthuse.me thing all about?

We created enthuse.me to help you promote yourself and your expertise. Create a one-page profile to show off what you're good at and why, and hand-pick the best examples of your work, knowledge or passion to prove you really know your stuff.

We're all about quality over quantity and focussing on only the best examples of your expertise. While LinkedIn is for your whole career history, and Facebook is for connecting with friends, enthuse.me is about chosing just one thing you do well and showcasing that in the best light - to the world! The website is currently in 'beta', but we will be adding a huge range of new features over the coming months.

What’s the “vision” for enthuse.me?

Although the service is at an early stage, a focussed, expert web presence is a powerful tool. We want to help you use it – to build your reputation, to gain new fans for your work and to connect with people who want to learn from you.

Ultimately, we aim to help every user to sell their skills, products and expert insight in the simplest, most effective way possible. We like to think big, so let’s call it “the world’s best knowledge marketplace”.

Your profile is only the beginning…

I could sign up, but what’s in it for me?

First up, you get early access to the service before any of your friends/colleagues/professional nemeses, allowing you to reserve your ideal username and then create a focussed, beautiful profile that communicates the best of what you do at a glance.

You can play with it, show off about it, use it as your online calling card… it’s up to you.

On top of that, your voice will be heard at a very early stage in our development. If you want to, you can help us shape the service in the way that best fits you and your particular area of expertise.

You can submit ideas and suggestions as you go, or join our Beta test group on Facebook to feed back in more depth.

FAQ: Setting up a profile

Why do I have to define my area of expertise?

enthuse.me is focussed on helping users to simply and effectively communicate their expertise; the very first step in this process is stating clearly and concisely what it is that you do.

We also believe the best way to promote yourself is to focus on just one thing you do exceptionally well, not everything you have ever done online, like many other profile building websites ask you to do.

What should I put on my profile?

Everything you add to your profile should display or demonstrate your expertise in the best light.

Focus on effectively showcasing the area of knowledge you have defined in your headline. Pick only the very best of what you do for your enthuse.me profile – first impressions count, so don’t make your audience work hard to find the good stuff.

Examples:

  • videos that show off your skills in action
  • great blog posts you’ve written that inform, teach, debate or define topics within your field of interest
  • recordings of talks you’ve given or podcasts you’ve made
  • links to examples & reviews of your work, interviews and features about you, awards you’ve won etc.
Can I create original content on enthuse.me?

Our 'Insights' feature lets you post short snippets of inspiration or advice, and other users can comment on these insights to start a discussion.

You can also upload your own thumbnail images for content you add, and in the near future we will allow you to create entirely new items on your profile from scratch, and upload files and pictures to display in any profile section.

Tell us what kind of content you want to create…

Can I personalise the design and layout of my profile?

Not yet, but we're looking into it for some future development! Send us your suggestions and requests…

Can I re-order items on my profile?

Yes! We're working on making this more obvious, but if you drag and drop the round icons in the menu at the top of your profile, the sections will be re-arranged in that order.

You can also drag each item in a section up and down to re-order them within that section.

I’ve made my profile… what happens next?

We’ll keep you up-to-date when new features and services are added.

As the site evolves we’ll help you to build your reputation, gain new fans for your work and to connect with people who want to follow your insights and expertise.

Ultimately, we aim to help every user to sell their skills, products and expert insight in the simplest, most effective way possible as part of the world’s best knowledge marketplace.

Until then, you now have a focussed, beautiful profile that communicates the best of what you do at a glance. Play with it, show it off, use it as your online business card or CV… it’s up to you.

What if I don’t use any of the sites you currently support?

Any of the 'enthuse' sections allow you to add content from anywhere online, and soon you will be able to add original content from scratch as well.

Can I change my username/url?

If you wish to change the display name on your profile, just click it. To change the username in your profile url, please email us at info@enthuse.me .

FAQ: And the rest...

Why is something broken in Internet Explorer/Safari/Firefox/Opera?

Who should I contact for press & media enquiries?

All press and media enquiries should be sent to press@enthuse.me and we’ll take it from there.

Why do you drink so much coffee?

Many reasons, and not just because our developers fancy the nice barista down the road...

Part of it is the need to stand up and move around on a regular basis, because sitting down all day is bad for you, don’t you know? (We also have standing desks for the same reason).

Another reason, is because there are some of the best coffee shops in London in walking distance of our office. And we're all addicted to the stuff! (We also drink tea... just because we're a British company, not because it actually tastes any good.)

What’s a falafel?

Our front-end coder Lewis once described a falafel as “a vegetable mouse”. No, we have no idea what that means either.
