Scottsdale Reputation Management Firm Reputation Maxx reveals why being online is more powerful and necessary than ever before.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's digital age, the majority of people in the world spend some part of their day online. Consumers are looking up companies and professionals before doing business with them, and employers are looking to see what prospective employees look like online. Besides having negative posts and embarrassing pictures on the Internet of oneself, the worst thing that anyone can find when they search for a person's name is nothing.
Scottsdale Reputation Management Firm Reputation Maxx understands that there are many people out there who prefer to keep their personal lives private and not have a web presence. However, this is the wrong way of thinking. There are many different reasons why a person should put some serious time and effort into the way that they look online, especially if their name is something unique with not a lot of search results for it. Without divulging too much information, a person can make sure that they keep a clean landscape with these tips.
1. Make a LinkedIn Profile – One of the best ways to shine light on an individual's achievements and accolades when applying for a job is to create a LinkedIn Profile. Done correctly and with the proper amount of information, setting up an optimized profile can take some time, but it will be worth it in the end. Employers are now going to LinkedIn and other social media and profile sites to scope out what potential employees excel at and the skills that they have been endorsed in. LinkedIn is a great tool for networking and getting connected with a new job as well.
2. Don't Leave Anything to Chance – Not having anything up on the Internet about oneself leaves a person vulnerable to attacks in the future. Whether it be a disgruntled former employee, unhappy customers or other attackers, it's best to make sure that anything negative is not easily found online. The only way to do this is to build up a strong, protective barrier of positive content to ensure that a person's good name stays clean.
"If you don't have anything online, you set yourself up for failure," said reputation expert and CEO of Scottsdale Reputation Management Firm, Reputation Maxx. "You need to make sure that there's something there so you don't leave yourself unprotected."
3. Take Action When Necessary – If something negative does surface, don't wait to take action. The longer negativity is on the first couple of pages of search engine results, the more it solidifies itself onto those pages.
"If you've been attacked online, don't wait and hope that it will go away," said Halicki. "Take immediate action to address the issues head-on."
