Game plan
  • New Rules

  • Business Rep Man
  • Personal Rep Man
  • QA

New Rules
  • You do not control your reputation, or message,
    or brand image. On or offline.
  • The only thing you can control is what you say,
    do, or contribute. Same in the real world.
  • No one cares how large or how old your business
    is. They care about what you do or say.

New Rules
  • Talking like a robot or a corporate drone doesnt
    work. Being real does.
  • People want to see the real you regardless.
  • Your marketing plans (and the future of your
    career/business) depend on putting your best out
    there online.
  • 63 of a companys market value is attributable
    to reputation
  • Remember Your grandma can see all of this.
