Completed – Rate and Review All People in Business

Reviews, recommendations, and personal testimonials are at the top of the list when it comes to research and influence in a buyer’s decision process before a purchase is made. In addition to the power of a high-quality and trusted review, the business and revenue generated from such reviews can also be worth millions. In fact, just the mere concept alone of compiling and providing such data for customers has generated billions of dollars in new business.

Sites like Yelp and Google Reviews help individuals find reviews for local restaurants and retail businesses. However, reviews and recommendations aren’t just for products and services. Take LinkedIn for example, which was acquired by Microsoft for $26 billion and is based on that same type of recommendation and review service, but on a more professional level. The game of online reviews, ratings, and recommendations is on that is continually being tweaked time and time again, yet always in demand.

With the way technology and data is rapidly growing and scaling across the internet, is it only a matter of time before everyone has an online review and rating system for themselves? This is something Completed.com wants to make happen. The company was recently featured on TechCrunch, as they are looking to change the way reviews and recommendations are made in the business world today — but also on an individual scale versus product or services, while also being more user friendly and personal.

Since we are all quite familiar with the concept of a site like LinkedIn, you should already have a good understanding of how a site like Completed.com. The difference between the two is where reviews, ratings and personal/professional highlights come into play. Also, profiles and reviews on the site aren’t limited to just business professionals, but everyone.

So what are the benefits to using a site like Completed.com?

Besides the obvious of having a site that you can reference to for reviews, personal information, and work history, there are other benefits you may not have considered yet:

  • Improve Search Rankings
    We all know that social profiles rank extremely well in the search results for individual and brand names. This is something to keep in mind when creating a profile on Completed. Since they have an authority site and will likely be gaining more traction over time, it’s important to secure your name now. If you like what you see, send a few backlinks to your profile and maybe scoop up another first page ranking for your name. From within your profile, you can also link out to your website and social profiles as well, which can pass a little SEO juice to your sites.
  • Grab Your Name Before Someone Else Does
    Just like domain names and social profiles, you want to act fast when it comes to grabbing your name. Since hundreds or thousands of people likely share the same name as you, it’s only a matter of time before someone else with your name registers on their site. (ie: https://www.completed.com/individual/First-LastName/) Secure your name and profile, then verify your account in the process.
  • Building a Professional Profile the Way You Want
    When creating a profile within Completed.com, you will have a wide range of fields to choose from (much more than what is offered within LinkedIn). You will also have more flexibility with the type of information, resources, and references as well. With all of your data and professional history on one site, it could be an ideal reference for you and potential clients. This is especially true for anyone in the freelance space, where reviews and testimonials are extremely important.

You can see how all of this information comes together in a live profile in the example below. In addition to all of the fields you see below, when actually in your account and filling out of all of your details, other sections include Trade Shows attended, greatest attributes, favorite foods, life milestones, favorite sports teams and more. As you can see, it’s a more personal approach than what LinkedIn offers.

In a new world where everyone is obsessed with page one rankings in good, how their reputation looks online and only having the best recommendations possible… a site like Completed.com can help bring everything together in one simple page.

It’s free to create an account and I’m sure there will be many new improvements and features added in the future. Visit their site and put together a profile of your own today. You might be surprised with how fancy and professional you look and feel after walking through their simple profile wizard that asks all the right questions!

How to Follow People that will Build Your Follower List

Social media is all about who you know and how you interact with them. When it comes to engagement though, there is always a big learning curve to start. How do you get people to follow you and start commenting or asking questions?

There are plenty of theories on this, but for my money, the simplest solution is to be proactive. Posting endless reams of content and doing nothing to encourage people to engage is a waste of energy. Instead, take half the energy you spend writing, recording or hiring and use it to follow and engage with other people.

Who though? That’s the big question. Who do you follow and what do you respond to that will provide the greatest possible return on your time investment? Here are some things to keep in mind.

Thought Leaders in Your Sub-Niche

If your products deal with search engine marketing, follow thought leaders in that field, but get specific. It’s easy to go out and follow people like Matt Cutts or Rand Fishkin, but they are unlikely to follow you back and engage with your content. You’re competing with tens of thousands (if not more) people also trying to engage and draw followers from those audiences.

Instead, get specific. Find someone in your subniche that focuses on specific details related to your site. For example, if you write a lot about video marketing strategies as a tool to boost search rankings, follow Mark Robertson, a video SEO expert with 6,000 followers. He is much more likely to respond to your tweets and questions and promote your content to the people following him.

Be an Equal

Don’t gravel or send queries to the people you follow. This is not a traditional publishing space. It is a social space and social interaction is measured only by follower activity and engagement. If you have something useful to say or a question that someone thinks will add to their own follower base, they will respond to it, whether you’re a nobody from Wisconsin or a Fortune 500 CEO.

The key is to have the confidence of that Fortune 500 CEO whether you’re in your basement or a high-rise office. Be sure of yourself, confident in your knowledge and ready to share your ideas openly.

Ask for Suggestions

Ask people following you for suggestions on who to follow. Be willing to admit you don’t know some things, go out and find people who do know those things and build your following base. This works not only Twitter but on Facebook, where you should Like a fair number of Pages so you can interact with those people on behalf of your own sites.

The key to social media is engaging with people as intellectual equals. Forget about the socioeconomic standing of you or your company. Build a foundation that gives you people to respond to a large potential audience that might follow you in turn.
