Do you own your own ‘personal name’ as a domain name?
Don’t you think you should?
Shouldn’t this be a part of your IP (Intellectual Property) strategy, and protection?
To my mind it’s all a part of positioning yourself online, AND protecting the integrity of ‘you’ as the person behind your brand.
When I started online 10 years ago trying to make a name for myself, I couldn’t even get on Page 1 in Google!
So if someone was doing their ‘due diligence’ on me, checking me out as Peter Butler they would see all the other Peter Butler’s in the world but not me L
The bottom line is people still want to do business with people they know, like and trust. Even if your branding is ‘corporate’ and you are simply the ‘silent’ face behind the business a lot of folk will still do their homework and due diligence and check out the person behind the business.
So, there I am, Page 3 in Google, it was a tough gig being a Peter Butler.
I thought I was popular, turns out I was just common L
There are a lot of Peter Butler’s out there, I was up against Football players, Plastic Surgeon’s, a Guitarist, and all manner of people with the same name, a competitive gig it was J
So, should you at least secure your own personal named domain?
I think so.
