Hey Labelers, we know you’re excited to launch your new brand, so are we! But we must ask when was the last time you googled yourself? What do people see when they search for you and your business? Is it good or is it bad? Either way, we are going to give you all the tools you need to do a personal and professional google scrub! Let’s get you polished and ready to launch!
Google Me, Baby
The first step is to do a basic google search of your full name and also your business name. Click on every link that mentions you and/or your business and thoroughly review what has been published. If you are launching a brand new business, this may ONLY apply to your personal name. Did MySpace pop up? Spokeo? PeopleFinder?
Myspace, Sis? Why is there still a MySpace account for you? Delete that account! Spokeo and PeopleFinder are common websites that you may find your personal information readily available to all who want it! We’re talking email addresses, mailing addresses, family members, phone numbers, sometimes your employers and the list goes on. Scary, right? Here’s how to remove it!
Here you will find a detailed link on how to get your personal information deleted from Spokeo. If you’re willing to pay a little coin, here are a few resources that will help you! Every website will be different. Be sure to search for their FAQ’s! Please always do your research before signing up or paying for services!
Lastly, be patient. Having personal information removed from specific websites won’t happen overnight, so it’s important to start NOW. It could take up to 30 days for your request to be completed. More importantly, keep any sent email requests and logged calls all in writing. We don’t think it will get to a place where you need it, but it never hurts to keep a record of your requests to have personal information removed.
Yes! Now you’re squeaky clean and ready to launch! When Creative Label is pitching 3you and/or your business, we want to make sure you are being represented in the best possible light. Are you ready to get you and/or your business seen by the masses? Click the link in our bio!
