Marketing Me! Personal branding no brainers

What drives me crazy probably drives you crazy but are you doing the same things that drive other people crazy? (Say that ten times fast!).

Here's some quickies:

If you want to brand yourself, how do I reach you? Why bother selling a product if I cannot buy it!

- Email
Do you use a signature file at the end of EACH email?
Do you use Plaxo or something similar to manage your contact information like email and so other can find your email address?
What is in your signature file? Just your land line number? What about your cellular? What about your email address? How about a URL?

- Web
A company name is not enough. How many companies have the same name? Is your domain name readily available? Have you set up a real web page? Does it reflect your identity? Your company?
Can I find you with Google? Everyone does it. Do you have a keyword optimized website for you and your product?

- Phone
How do I reach you? Only be a land line with voice mail you check once a day? Or may I have your cellular?
Do you answer your phone? Or do you let every call go to voice mail and screen?
When do you answer your phone? Between 9-5? Or later and earlier?
What does your voice mail say? Do you update it daily or weekly or only when you travel?

I cannot buy your brand unless I know where to find you and how to reach you successfully. Please market yourself responsibly!

Happy hunting,
