Mystery authors: Win an Ever.com lens to promote your book. Enter here.
How memorable is your website or blog URL? If you need something smart and snappy, or if you’re just looking for another place to promote yourself, create a page at Ever.com.
The concept works by pairing an adjective (“best” is the most popular) with a keyword or short phrase and then creating a subdomain URL that is easy to remember. For example, an author with an upcoming detective novel to promote might create a page with the address best.mystery.ever.com.
This is another way to create a profile page, resume, online business card, or book blurb that you can have at your fingertips should you have an elevator-speech opportunity. An editor might actually remember something like best.mystery.ever.com.
The Ever.com domain is owned by Squidoo and is another one of their portals. So it is a different domain and a potentially different audience, but the same account and interface as your other Squidoo lenses; nothing new to learn.
