Balloon HQ Members Gain Access to Great Services
Vanity E-mail and Web Addresses
email@example.com, www.balloonhq.com/artists/user, and user.balloonhq.com
Present a more professional demeanor to clients without changing any of the internet services and software you already use. Get an e-mail address and web address that represent the professional community to which you belong. Everything will be transparently forwarded to your pre-existing addresses.
Example: Jane Balloonist, uses AOL as her internet service provider. Jane can now feature jane_balloonist@BalloonHQ.com and http://www.BalloonHQ.com/artists/jane_balloonist on all her promotional materials. A BalloonHQ address conveys more meaning to potential clients than firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you switch internet service providers, there is no need to replace any of your promotional materials!
Automatically Create an On-line Portfolio
It can be difficult to maintain your own web site. Balloon HQ has made
that task easy. All photos that you upload will be displayed in your
personal portfolio, along with your contact information and your
personalized calendar or upcoming appearances. Distribute your portfolio
URL to potential clients. A Balloon HQ portfolio can be used either in
connection with your own web site or as a stand-alone web site.
If your BHQ email address is email@example.com, your personal
portfolio will be found on the web at http://jane_balloonist.balloonhq.com.
If you are an experienced web designer and you want to use the power of the
BHQ photo database, but also want greater flexibility than basic portfolios
offer, you can use special code we provide to place your portfolio within
your custom web site. You can read more about
creating custom portfolios.
