Enhance Your Online Presence With a Video Greeting

Are you trying to have a strong and positive online presence? If you’re in a job search, you definitely should focus on your “Google juice.”

In other words, what do people find when they search for you online? Fortunately, this is in your control.

One important thing you can do is to have a personal website or blog. A great option is to register the domain that consists of your name “johndoe.com.” This provides a great way to showcase yourself for anyone who may be looking for you (especially potential legal employers).

Another method is to create an audio resume, using the tool I mentioned a few days ago.

Something I have definitely overlooked is to create a video greeting. Chris Brogan just wrote about this concept at Lifehack:

YouTube is one of the most misunderstood pieces of software out there. It’s not TV. It’s a video sharing platform. Record whatever you want. But here’s a trick: why not record a video saying who you are, what you’re into, or what you do for work. Why not make it interesting, funny, or relevant? Post it, and then post the link to the video on your blog and your MySpace. A video greeting, so to speak, does wonders for adding some dimension to who you are.

A video greeting is definitely a unique and interesting way to showcase yourself online. You can be creative, show off your speaking abilities, and illustrate your outgoing personality. Why not give it a try?
