What's YOUR name?
Are you proud of it?
Then SHOW your pride and make sure that is part of everything you do online.
OK, taking a step back, I agree that there are many instances in which you would want to use a pseudonym to work online — and in that case, be proud of your pseudonym and make sure you rank for that!
In either case, make sure you RANK for whatever name you choose and make sure that the rankings MATTER.
For example, here are the sites and social media accounts for which you SHOULD rank on Google IF you are marketing yourself correctly:
- Your main blog
Those are BASIC accounts. Sign up for them, if you haven't already.
Below is an example of how I show up in a search for Rosalind Gardner (without quotes) on Google.
The only way you can get there is by using your name on your blog and anywhere you post comments as well as joining and posting to social media accounts under your name.
Be proud of it – whether it's your real name, a pseudonym or a company name – USE it!
BTW, if you haven't already done so, register your REAL NAME or Company Name at Bluehost today!
