Personal branding is a big part of the business world and it is important that your image is represented well. Brand Yourself is a website that allows you to arrange what links show up first when you “Google” your name. I began the process of using Brand Yourself to help boost my personal brand. The website took me through a series of prompts to define websites and profiles that were mine or not. The first 10 websites provided were not me, which resulted in a score of a F.
The website offered me various suggestions to boost my profiles in the rankings on Google. One of the suggestions included me entering the profile links that were mine on social media sites, such as, Twitter and LinkedIn. More suggestions offered were adding a profile picture, posting a status on a social media platform, and updating social media profiles.
