Slidecast: BrandYourself Startup Lets You Control Your Own Google Results

In this slidecast, Patrick Ambron from BrandYourself describes how the company lets you control your own Google results.

Like any good company, BrandYourself started as a problem that turned into a mission we just couldn’t ignore. We hated the fact that reputation firms purposely mystified the Search Engine Optimization process, making their customers feel trapped. We hated that these firms overcharged customers for something they could easily do themselves if they simply had a platform that educated and empowered them to do so.

So we made it our mission to create a Do-It-Yourself platform that makes it easy for anyone to take control of their own search results without any price or technical barrier. We’ve been working around the clock for over a year putting together the team, expertise and building the platform you can use for free today.

I tried out the BrandYourself process and I found it to be very easy to set up. If you have a stake in what people see when they Google your name, I highly recommend you get on the site and sign up.
