New Major League Reputation Service?

A press release has been written about me and my new site =) I guess the word is out now:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States of America (Free-Press-Release.com) February 21, 2011 —
A new domain name has been registered this year for the “Reputation Management” niche. Nothing new there, except the name of the site is what succeeds in drawing in attention. According to WHOIS, it is registered to Tim Hickman, blogging champ for small businesses in Philadelphia and around the US.

The reason for the hype is that Tim himself talked previously about the numerous reputation sites out there. So could this one have the potential to be different? The URL seems to say as if there are new techniques to the Reputation Management Services (RMS), or that reputation management has completely changed from the past. The URL in question? ReputationManagement2011.com

According to internet analysts, “RMS could be changed as we know it.” We see how different the internet has become in just one year in 2010, with the use of Twitter, Facebook and Linked In marketing. Perhaps 2011 will be a new ball game as well. One thing is for sure, with a domain name like that you can bet it will rank high almost automatically for that keyword, and let’s just hope they are ready for any mass streams of traffic or potential clients. The site can either be a hit or a miss. Given Tim Hickman’s history with blogging and social media marketing, it has the potential. But will it deliver the results?

Complete Idiot’s Guide to Social Media Marketing

I went to a discount book store yesterday in my area. It formally was a Forman Mills (For-mon Mills!) That jingle always gets stuck in my head. Anyway, it turned into a bulk book store. I will have to say I was less than thrilled going in there, epecting a huge store. There was not a big selection. it could have been that they ‘lost their lease’ (how does that happen?) and so they were not getting any new books. Everything was at least 80% off.

Their business selection was small, but they did have one good book that I have. Then I came across the “Complete Idiot’s Guide” section. I usually hate these form of books, but two caught my eye, but I picked up one: “Social Media Marketing.” SInce that is my next venture I figured it could be a good read. Although even my friends joked “You probably could write that,” I bought it anyway mostly for the fact this $19.95 book as $3.15. I could not complain. So I will be reading this lately. I will make an updated post(s) on whether it is a good read. I picked it up though, so right there I at least recommend it for even new comers. I don’t buy too many books, so if I do it usually means to me it has some value.
