Before You Make Another Move, Get Your Online Presence in Order

Before you market your product or service, get your online presence in order.  Complete an update of your LinkedIn profile, for example. Then to get a visual of your LinkedIn presence,  create a graphic like mine below. I created this on https://create.visual.ly/kelly/ when I learned about it from Guy Kawasaki on Google+

If you don’t like what you see, edit your LinkedIn profile to better reflect who you are and what you do.

Once you’re done, post it on Google Plus, Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and all your other favorite social media sites.
