Whatever your business, product, or service, credibility is key. It’s also true with your personal reputation. On that note, the information that appears, or doesn’t appear, whenever your name is searched on the Internet is a litmus test of your personal and professional credibility. It’s called G-cred.
To help with that G-cred, here are 9 things you can do:
1.) A maxed-out LinkedIn profile: Lots of folks have a LinkedIn profile, but few have a LinkedIn profile that’s fully completed for maximum impact. Is yours?
• Don’t just have a short job title, tell folks as much as possible in that title space. The more key words, the better.
• Have a bunch of recommendations? No? Then here’s a tip: If you want more recommendations, try giving some.
• Be sure you include all your website links and a Twitter feed.
• Is your profile Summary awesome? Is it filled with juicy keywords?
• Got videos or SlideShare presentations? Add them with the SlideShare app.
• If you want you can even display your reading list.
• Lastly, be sure your latest blog posts and Tweets are being displayed in your LinkedIn update feed.
A LinkedIn profile is usually one of the first things that comes up in an Internet search. Be sure you have a great one.
2.) A blog: It’s easier than ever to create a blog. Not only will it help with G-cred, it’ll help position you and your business as a leader in your field.
