A few months ago, I discovered a great site for helping people and small biz owners to secure and protect their brands and identities online.
KnowEm allows you to check for the use of your brand, product, personal name or username instantly across over 340 popular and emerging social media websites. Grab your name before someone else does.
Lisa Barone (of Outspoken Media) did a great review at SmallBizTrends that I learned a lot from.
In less than five minutes, I registered and started protecting my username on dozens of sites. Take a look. It is free for the basic service. You then click through to go to the registration link at each site and worth doing. The home page image you see above lets you enter your name (or brand) and in seconds you see where your name is available or taken. If you’re busy, Knowem can do it for you: The individual level of service is $99 and you still have to complete all the details, but they initiate it for you. The business level at $249, does just a bit more and handles uploading your photo, bio, etc.
