In the past I’ve often written article on the importance of how people can find you, not just a physical location but also digitally. We’ve discussed web sites, Social Media, Google suite of products etc. Let’s pose this question - when you're about to meet someone new, perhaps a new client, supplier etc, what do you do? Google them right!
Guess what, they’ll be doing the same to you!
Whilst they might find your web site, maybe LinkedIn and other social media, often that information is confused with other pages of content, videos and images. Whist we know the importance of your rankings in Google for your web page, equally important is your personal name! What happens if someone Googles you and they cant find anything about you? What does that say to them, or worse, they may have to trawl through 20 other people by your name, just to find you?
You must own the online real estate for your name. A great web site, that takes less than 10 minutes to set up is http://about.me. In fact, writing this article prompted me to make some changes to my about.me site.
This is a great site to promote you which also linked to all your social media accounts, web sites, newsletter/ blogs and much more! Being a responsive web site, automatically people will be able to view on any device without you having to change any settings.
Check it out, set up a page and start get hold of your name as a brand.
