  1. More really valuable information Carla! Even those of us who are regularly visible online, in forums, blogging and commenting need to remember that when it comes to cyberspace you are never “off work” when it comes to what you say. I have an ongoing Google alert for my name and as sensitive as I am to this advice, every once in awhile an alert comes through with a comment I’ve made on a forum or blog that i don’t even remember making. Thank heavens I haven’t had any problems but still it’s always a bit of a thump to the head reminder. Thanks!

    Definitely be aware of your reputation online. People do look to see who you are, especially if you seem interesting and they want to build that trust factor. A couple years ago I was working on cleaning up a company’s image with the fans in the various niche they covered. It was not easy and there were articles documenting incidents that could have been done better. However, the company was new and started by college students that did not have much experience. After connecting with some of the major groups that were not happy with that company, they changed their tune and even offered to help if it was needed.

    For the company, I went through a whole spiel about online reputation. In the end, I was really happy to see that the outlook was much more improved and the company had a better handle on what to do.

  3. Hi Carla,Reputation is everything and it can take a long time for you to build up a great reliable reputation only to have it destroyed in a moment when you do something dumb!

    I teach everyone that every word spoken online or offline is energy and the power of the tongue, our thoughts and our written words does have enormous impact on our lives.

    I agree to be honest and yourself. Proclaiming your guru status when you are a mere beginner is risky is downright stupid. Over time people will get to know you for who you really are. We are all unique and have much to offer.

  8. Hi Carla, these are great tips! sometimes social media seems so friendly, it’s easy to forget where we are, and that others will see what we’re saying, and may interpret it in a different way to what it was meant. The challenge is, that when people read what we’ve said, we’re not there to clarify any misinterpretation.

    VERY helpful tips in your video Carla, thank you.
