Owning Your Online Brand is a Must

So I’ve been a broken record about this “Owning Your Online Brand” issue. The reality is, I’m even writing a book about it. Why am I so passionate about this? It’s because I am contacted daily by prospective clients who have been negatively impacted by their negative search results.

If you are not actively taking control of how you appear on Google Search results, then you are opening yourself up for the possibility of major damage control in the future. All it takes is one unsatisfied customer, one angry ex-friend or ex-employee or just some troll who decided that you are their next victim.

Take a moment to Google your name and your business name and look at the results. You should own your first page of results. If you do not, then make sure you sign up for the top 15 social networks today.

Important Tip: Remember to fill out as much information as you can. The more you fill out the info, the higher impact it has on how Google and other Search Engines view your profile.

    Great reminder to make sure that we are in control of our online brand. Just one dissatisfied customer can damage our reputation, and one “off-brand” message can send mixed messages.

    Thanks for sharing this post. I really didn’t think it mattered in filling out everything. I never did it because there was information I just felt they didn’t need to know.
