Do good things appear when people google your name?
(Don't know why this is important? Here's Why You Should Google Your Name Right Now.)
BrandYourself has just relaunched their website and to celebrate, they're sponsoring this contest with prizes that will help boost positive results for you in Google searches. Thank you, BrandYourself.
This is the fourth contest as part of the run-up to JobMob's 5th Anniversary on March 21st, and still more are coming.
In case you missed them, here are the others and you can still enter each one too:
The idea for BrandYourself came from co-founder Pete Kistler, a star student who years ago had trouble getting job interviews because anyone who googled his name instead found mentions of another Pete Kistler who had been arrested for drug-related offenses.
Co-founder Evan Watson says that “BrandYourself is the only Do-It-Yourself platform that makes it easy for anyone to improve their own search results.”
The new BrandYourself.com won the SXSW accelerator competition and has been covered on major media such as Fast Company, the New York Post, Mashable and TechCrunch.
Here's how it works:
You can also build a custom profile on BrandYourself that will also appear as a positive result in your results.
Some suggestions of what to write in your comment are:
Be as descriptive as you can.
Simple – Leave an impressive comment.
The winners will be the 6 people with the most impressive comments as judged by Evan Watson, co-founder of BrandYourself.
You, or anyone you know, can try to influence the choice of winners by leaving more comments in support.
The best commenter will win:
5 people will each win:
And if you think 3 months isn't enough time to make an impact, Evan says that “most of our users see results in the first couple of days, and 70% of the upgrades to a premium account come in the first 48 hours.”
These are all good prize packages that can immediately have an impact on your job search, your freelancing business, your dating life or anything else where people are regularly googling your name.
Void where prohibited.
To be considered as entries in the contest, all comments must be submitted before this coming Monday, March 26th, 2012.
And please tell your friends on Facebook to comment too.
