Promote YOU.Inc with a personalized Gravatar

Branding yourself

Key ways to improve your image on the net

You know the importance of promoting “You.Inc” right?  With folks getting so much hype, lies and junk these days on the internet, the only thing that we know is REAL is YOU.  Your picture, your voice, your video, your blog/website, etc.

Hype shot glass

More Hype!

The more you promote YOU.Inc the more you will be known, the more you will be liked (assuming you are a likable person) and the more you will be trusted.  Getting someone to know, like and trust you means you have credibility with that person so you are trusted in what you say and do.  As a sales person, that trust is crucial to your success.

Your picture goes a long way to help folks get to know you.

Here I am.

Now, another way you can get your picture seen is by having it with comments you put on blogs or forums or other places on the net.  Those places commonly accept what is known as a “Gravatar”, those little pictures or drawings that show up on your comment post.

Creating your own Gravatar

If you have not created your own gravatar, your post will show a default or generic one, as determined by the blog settings.  Wouldn’t it be neat if you had your picture there instead of a little graphic?  That would brand you and help create and improve your image so folks have an easier time getting to  know, like and trust you.

Well, it is drop dead easy to make your own gravatar.  Just go to http://www.Gravatar.com and click on the link that says “Get your gravatar today >>” and follow the easy instructions.  You will have to have a picture of yourself on your computer or a link to one on the internet.  You can crop it to your liking and then save it as your Gravatar.

The gravatar is linked to your email address so make sure you put it in correctly and use it on your blog & forum comments.  That way, gravatar.com can use your email address to pull down the gravatar that you created.

Enjoy your new-found fame!

Suggestion:  If you don’t run a blog, I would strongly recommend you start one today to brand You.Inc.

    Great post Fred! Anonymity is one of the main causes of distrust and business failure online and most people are unaware of it. Even something that “seems” insignificant can make a huge difference in branding and definitely does affect results. As always thanks for providing continued value in everything you do!

I just really enjoy learning & reading your blog! I will keep all you tips in mind tho and use the ones that work best for me when the time comes.

    Cool, I actually just did it! made some gravatars. I’ve been putting it off for a long time. Some are personal, some are not.

    Great idea to get personal with potential customers. Most likely, when you get down to it, people would choose the one they trust over price.

    I will agree on this statement that “The more you promote YOU.Inc the more you will be known, the more you will be liked and the more you will be trusted”. This is a significant thing that would make you soar in the net. And be professional enough in facing sequences if you think you have overpowered your opponents.
