I participate in a few online forums related to my work. Today, when I took a look at my profile for one of the forums, I realized I hadn't updated it in a year! A lot has changed since then, including my skills set and focus. It was definitely time for a rewrite.

Now, I have not done this yet, but I think it would be a good idea to maintain a list of everywhere I've registered and created a profile. Then, I could review that list every six months to ensure that I'm effectively presenting my brand. Brand and reputation management is definitely something I need to systemize!

Amazon offers an "Author Page"...go there and launch one. Why? They allow you to also add your blog's RSS feed. Why? Your blog posts are then in the Amazon algorithm...a powerful backlink....not to mention the fact that however you title your blog posts, those appear as keyword text links.
Why? It's good SEO + Amazon allows you to add images or galleries...great if you author many books, e-books, manuals etc. You can showcase them on your Amazon Author Page - BTW, email me at address in my profile here and I will send you link to my Amazon Author Page...I won't link it in this post

Wouldn't it make sense to choose fewer places to be present online ... hope this remains one ... and try to maximize your presence there ... as opposed to being a lot of different places?

Being active on niche forums is necessary for me to offer the services that I provide. I still limit my focus to the sites that are most productive. I would assume that I am probably more engaged online than someone who has a platform-based product or service to sell.

@belew You are right. I choose to be present at website and learn to be more present at niche website as mentioned by @TParker. Since I choose to do animation and design work, I need to be present at behance also besides of website.
