With the world becoming more and more technological everyday, it seems like you need to have a place online where you can keep your contact information. Whether it’s just your e-mail address or more, ReachBy can help you do just that!

To sign up, you need to fill out the registration form. You need to create a username, which will be displayed on your contact page. You also need to create a password for your account. Then just provide your e-mail address, fill in the page headline, edit the page content (what your page will say), set up your security question and type in the verification code to prove you are human.

The next step is to check your e-mail for a confirmation. Mine came almost instantly. Click on the link in the e-mail and you’re ready to go! The link should direct you to your contact page so that you have an idea of what it looks like. If you’re happy with it, you can leave it as is and start handing out your contact link to other people.

If you’re unhappy with the way it looks, you can edit it. To get back to your main account page, click on the ReachBy logo in the top left corner of the page. You’ll find navigation on the left with these options:

Account Home – This takes you back to the main page of your account.

Edit Content – This is where you can edit what your contact page says and looks like. To find more customization ideas, click on the Formatting Styles link. That shows you the codes you can use to give your profile a more personalized feel.

To use the formatting styles, simply copy what’s shown. For example, we’ll use fine print.

They have [-fine print-] and you would put [-Hello!-]

That’s pretty easy, right?! For more examples, check out the demo page I made here.

Picture – You can also add a photo to your profile via the Picture section. Click on the Choose button to pick a photo from your computer and then click Upload. Next, select a position: right, middle or left. You can also put a border around the picture with the “Draw a thin line around the photo” option. Just check that box if you’d like to add a thin line border. Now, all you have to do is click the Save Changes button and you’ve got a picture on your contact page!

Change E-mail – This is where you can change the e-mail address you want your contact notices to go to!

Set Password – Here you can reset your password. Note: You’ll need to answer your security question to do so.

Identity Info – This is where you can reset your security question.

Protect Form – If you chose not to allow anonymous contacts, this is the section where you can make yourself even more secure from spammers by setting up a question the person has to answer. Or, you can change your settings if you chose to allow anonymous contacts and you no longer want to. And vice versa.

Deactivate – If you no longer need your contact page, you can deactivate it here.

Button Link – Here you can find a selection of buttons you can use on a Web page or social profile like MySpace, Facebook, Blogger, etc. That way, people can click on the button and go straight to your contact page. Just copy the code next to the button you want and paste it on the page where you want it displayed.

Logout – This button logs you out of your account.

That’s it. I hope you have fun using ReachBy!
