Making Your Own Website

by Unre Visagie

Making Own WebsiteIf you are serious about building and expanding your career, you MUST manage your online profile. The simple question here is:

“What do people find when they type your name into Google?”

If you do that quickly…

What do you see? Only your Facebook profile, maybe you have a Linked-In profile, with no photo and three or four connections…

The days of hiring people based on their CV’s and Resumes are over.

The first place a company will look if they consider you as a potentially good applicant is the Internet. They look at who you link to on your Linked-In profile, they look at what you have published online, they look at where you spend your time online. So how do you think it will look if the only place they find you is on non-related communities, or they only find your private FB page?

You MUST participate online in the industry you want to grow your career. Blogs, forums, Linked-In groups, online communities… Even if you feel like you do not have anything to add, YOU DO, so stop thinking you do not.

Join a few forums and answer questions, using your REAL NAME. If someone asks something you do not know, go and research the question quickly and publish answers, become a resource in the community.

You must have a website / blog

In today’s career world, you need to have a website. Join this community to learn how to setup your own website quickly – “Making Own Website“.org – it is a very simple process.

Start by creating a website where you focus on industry related topics, do not mix personal with career or business related topics. Rather run two or three separate websites for each area, but start with your industry related website. If you keep the focus very niche, and you follow the guidelines on the making your own website community, you will be able to earn money from your website as well. But earning money from your website should not the driving focus, it should be a secondary focus, the driving focus should be to add great value to your industry and I guarantee you that the money will follow.
