A recent post commented on Peter de Jager's playful advice for speakers. As a result of that post, Peter and I have been in communication and he's updated the list. It will brighten your day. Take a look here.
I obviously haven't had time to post here but am taking a few minutes for a mini-rant ...
Why would you craft a nice, attractive website and put none of the principals names in it?
How can your name NOT come up in a Google search if you're an active professional?
Why do you make it hard for me (a potential client) to find you?
Okay, I'm done now. I feel better.
Obvious advice but apparently not everyone is heeding it: Google your name often to know if you indeed show up. This is also important to know who else with your name is showing up and doing things you wish they didn't do!
In addition, if you're a principal in a professional services firm, make sure I can find you easily on your website. Don't make me have to call your number and then listen to your after-hours office directory listing to find who I'm searching for.
Okay, now I really feel better. You can go back to what you were doing.
