Wellman Wilson Consulting

by Lara on March 12, 2012

In case any of you have noticed how quiet it has been around here lately it’s because many exciting things have been going on – most notably that I have OFFICIALLY joined forces with my friend Karen Wilson to form Wellman Wilson Consulting!

What does that mean?

All the blog posts I’ve written here have been merged with Karen’s on the new site.  All the services I offered will still exist, but Karen and I will offer them together offering more bang for your buck.


Please visit

Please come and check us out at our new home at www.wellmanwilson.com, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/wellmanwilson, on twitter at www.twitter.com/wellmanwilson and by signing up for our newsletter.

If you already receive my newsletter, that list will be merged with the new Wellman Wilson newsletter.

I will slowly be dismantling this site so please bookmark the new one and visit us there – we plan to offer regular advice, tips, and services for business owners looking to understand and maximize the use of social media.

You have a Facebook page, but have you noticed the URL for it is long and cumbersome?

Did you know you can easily change it to something easy to remember and share?  Here’s how!

Visit www.facebook.com/username

Mine is already set but you just need to pick the page in question from the drop down menu and it will provide you with a box to enter your vanity url.  It will then let you know if that name is available and if it is you can claim it!

WARNING: You can’t change it later, so be sure you know what you want before you make any decisions!

It’s that easy!  Go and claim your vanity url now and then you too can tell people to check you out at a url as easy to remember as this: www.facebook.com/larawellmanconsulting
