A quick note on Personal Branding

I had a meeting with a smart prospect yesterday.  We had a short talk about  how our companies might work together, got to know each other, complain about the weather.  At the end of the conversation, he said “so, you blog a lot huh.  I google everyone I talk to.”

It was the first time anyone had admitted to Googling me before we talked.  It was validating in a way.  A big reason I blog is to raise not only the profile of my employer, but my own personal profile as well.  And when I did an ego search, it was pretty interesting.

I have two main blogs that I write on in a professional sense, this one and IfByPhone’s.  When I googled my name, the first two pages were filled with a guest post I did at VoipSupply.  That’s great, but it would have been much better if I had been paying attention to what people were going to see when they searched for me.  You see, my prospect thought I was a VOIP guy, which I am not. The reason it shows up all over is because I blogged there under my full name, not just my first name.

So a short lesson is that if you’re going to build a personal brand, you might want to make sure to:

  • Ego search every once in a while
  • Market your full name

    I think non-techie and small business people generally do NOT search before a meeting unless they do a quick LinkedIn lookup.

    I do find all kinds of interesting information about people though – things to bring up in conversation.
