BrandYourself is the only DIY product that helps people control their own search results. It started when my co-founder Pete couldn’t get an internship in college because he was being mistaken for a Drug Dealer in Google. If you wanted to improve your results, you either needed to know how Search Engine Optimization works (most people don’t) or pay thousands of dollars for a reputation company to do it for you (most people can’t). We wanted to put the important power of online reputation management and personal SEO in everybody’s hands by creating a free product that made the process simple to manage themselves. We have product and features to help you no matter what your situation
