Sign Handle… Claim your Social Media Property before someone else does! <tweet this>
Without a Handle… you don’t exist online! Make it easy for people to find you! <tweet this>
I need a handle, man. I don’t have an identity until I have a handle. – Joey (Hackers) <tweet this>
So…. What’s a “Handle”?
A handle can be anything from 5-15 characters (letters & numbers only) with no spaces or special characters. Most Social Media sites call them “User Names” but in reality it is your Handle!
Here are some Examples:
The idea is to own your Handle (user name) on every Social Media site out there… that way anyone that is searching for you within Social Media can find you easily.
Choosing your handle:
Choosing the right handle for your business is VERY important. If possible, it should be your business name, however most businesses have a name longer than 15 characters.. so if that is you… be creative!
i.e. The name of our company is “Solid Marketing Strategies” way to long for a user name… so we chose “SMSGetFound” for our Social Media Handle
It is also very very useful to have a handle that is a keyword or keyword phrase directly related to your business as this will also help your Social Media pages show up in Google Search Results.
Your Handle also needs to be easy for people to remember, so a clever name using numbers to replace words (for = 4) can be good… again if it is easy for people to remember.
Check to see if your chosen Handle is available…
We use the site http://NameCHK.com to check 159 Social Media Websites to see if a given Handle is available. Now this is NOT all of them… but it is a really good start!
The next step is to see if the URL is available…
Once you have your Handle chosen, the next step is to check to see if the domain name is available. You can use a service like Godaddy.com or some other domain registrar to check.
NOTE: Make sure the domain you buy is the .COM! The COM is really the only one people really remember…
Although it is not the end of the world if your Social Media Handle is not available as a domain name, it is preferred! Let’s face it, would you remember “SolidMarketingStrategies.com” or “SMSGetFound.com” easier??
NOTE: You do not need to build a new website on your Social Media Handle Domain, a simple redirect to your existing website will do just fine!
We just handed you the Key’s to the Kingdom! The Holy Grail of SEO! <tweet this>
Once you have found a suitable Social Media Handle that is available on most (or all) of these 159 sites, the next step is to go and build out a complete profile on each and every one! Thus claiming your Social Media Handle!
PLUS, each profile on every site will have a place for you to put a link back to your website!!!
So why is this the “Key’s to the Kingdom” and “The Holy Grail of SEO”?? <tweet this>
Every one of the 159 Social Media websites carry a Google Page Rank of 8, 9 or 10 (a very difficult Rank to achieve!)… more than likely your website is at best a 0, 1 or 2! So for every incoming link from a high Page Rank site to your low Page Rank site, your Google “Clout” goes up…. along with your Google Search Rankings!!
Bottom line, there is no easy, fast way to do this. For most people it takes about an hour per site to build out and verify the profile… so you are looking at about 160 hours of work… but it is TOTALLY WORTH IT!
OR… we can do it for you!!
Our program builds out a total of 165 different Social Media sites including most of the sites you see on NameCHK. Our program takes 4 months to complete (as you don’t want to do too many to fast… it looks unnatural to Google and will drop your rankings rather than raise them!).
If you choose to have us do this for you, we have two payment options!
- Option 1: $300 per month over the 4 month period for a total of $1200
- Option 2: $1000 up front. Save $200!
This is by far the MOST powerful program that we offer!
