Do it Yourself Online Reputation Management

Here is a really cool company called Brand Yourself.

Their company, BrandYourself, is billed as a DIY platform that makes it simple for anyone to take control of their own search results. Their service created a lot of excitement  last week’s SXSW Accelerator awards.

If you have negative remarks showing up in the search engines, give these guys a try. They claim that the free version will help most people out. I tried it out.

Stuck on hold? How to get help from a real person

Check out the website GetHuman.com. When you call the number listed for AT&T, it takes only 20 seconds before you connect to a real rep. The same GetHuman.com website gets companies to call you back so you don’t have to sit on hold. Pretty interesting. Anything that can cut down on hold time is a good thing.
