Professional Networking with Mycubi - Create a Cubi
(Page 2 of 4 )
Signing up to join Mycubi is extremely easy. Simply provide your name and contact information, then choose the user name and password you’d like to use for the site itself to access your account. From there, you’re ready to create your own Cubi and become part of the network.
Mycubi is still new, and like all new networks it still has a few kinks in the system. Things might start to get hairy right away, as the My Account page has some bugs on it. However, just select the “Create new cubi page” option on the right-hand side of the page, and you’re ready to begin. (In other words, do your best to work around and ignore any small bugs you might see - mostly, these come in the form of page errors).
From here, you’ll start getting into the nuts and bolts of creating your Cubi. First, you have to decide what sort of profile you’re going to create. This all depends, of course, on just what you do and who you are.
Services. This applies to any professional or small business who provides something -- be it photography, legal advice, plumbing, etc. It’s likely that your main Cubi will fall into this category.
Events. As the name suggests, this category allows you to create Cubis for specific events. You may wish to create one for your wedding, for example. Since Mycubi is designed for use among locals, it can be ideal for big events that take place in one area.
Classes. This allows people to create profiles centered on certain classes. Educators, for instance, may wish to point students to a Cubi so they can keep track of assignments.
Groups and teams. Even groups and teams can create their own Cubis to promote themselves. This can be a good way to list meetings, games, etc.
Now, it’s time to start adding relevant information to your Cubi, detailing who you are and what you do. You’ll enter your Cubi name (Bob’s Building, for example), choose a more specific category (in this example, construction) and add a brief description (“new construction and remodeling services“).
You’ll provide information pertaining to your hours of operation and pricing in the next step, which is all pretty self-explanatory. At the top of this section, you’ll also want to enter several tag words. These will appear on your Cubi to let others know what you offer. For instance, Bob’s Building might list new construction, home repair, and renovation.
In the next section, you’ll be able to add links and a location to your Cubi. After you’ve added pictures (or chosen not to add them), you’ll get a look at the Cubi you’ve created. This is what others will see when they find you on the site.
Like the way it looks? Just hit the “publish cubi” button on the top left of the page, and you’ll be visible to all!
