Social media can no longer be ignored. While we want to get away from it, you cannot get away from the fact that it is important to your personal brand.
How do I know people are finding me online and not someone else?
How do I control what is being said about me online?
How do I make sure my Google ranking is good?
These are all good questions that many people have been asking at recent presentations and workshops I have been delivering. Its hard to answer them sometimes. And it was a little time consuming to go to Google and do this yourself, especially if you wanted to keep up to date on a regular basis. there might now be an answer.
BrandYourself.com is the first do-it-yourself platform that makes it easy for anyone to take control of their own Google results. I have been using it for the last few weeks and am very fortunate to have a good Google score and all the links on page one of Google when you search my name are me. I have also just taken a minute to post my profile. It should take 2-6 weeks to appear in Google, I will let you know. In the meantime take a look and let me know what you think - Paul Copcutt - Brand Yourself Profile
My search score is a perfect A+, better than any school grade! I have even earned a few status badges, and being an ex-boy scout we all love collecting badges!!!
But seriously does the same apply for you and your online brand?
