In a world where almost everyone has access to the internet, your first impression can sometimes happen with a simple Google search, and without even meeting someone face-to-face. Personal Reputation Management for individuals allows you to take control of your online image and portray yourself in a more accurate and positive manner.
What is Personal Reputation Management?
Personal Reputation Management combines several techniques aimed to clean up an individual’s online search results to help them utilize a more professional and accurate online image for themselves.
Google is the world’s number one search engine with over 63,000 searches per second. When someone has a question, they go straight to Google.
Why do you need Personal Reputation Management?
Nowadays, online screening is becoming more and more popular, and quite frankly necessary to help gather information about a person. This can apply to job applications, college applications, and even online dating. An individual’s online reputation stands in to make a first impression before the individual has a chance to his or herself. Whether you are applying to college, interviewing for a job, or even trying to get a date, people are going to check up on your online image before making a decision.
Anyone and everyone can be their own personal detective with the help of Google. When you Google your name, what do your search engine results say about you?
Why is Reputation Management for individuals important?
Taking those results into consideration, someone can develop either a positive or negative online reputation. Links, images, videos, social media posts, social media profiles, tweets, likes, mentions - it all gets taken into consideration when creating your personal online reputation.
If a hiring manager searches your name online and finds search results filled with professional websites, articles and links, odds are they would be much more likely to consider that person as a candidate, opposed to someone with questionable material online associated with their name.
A negative online reputation can stand in between people and the job of their dreams, acceptance into their top pick college, and even landing a date with someone who might be a great match.
The truth is, your online reputation speaks before you even get a chance to, because it offers a sense of unbiased opinion to someone who is looking to gather information about who you are, what you do, and what you bring to the table.
