Did you know people can claim your business name on social media websites without you knowing it, ala “cybersquatting”?
That’s why registering your business name on social media websites is very important. As the owner, you should register your business name on social media websites before someone else does.
With hundreds of social media websites, registering your business name on each site can be time consuming. Luckily, there are websites where you can quickly find out whether your business name is available on a given social media website. If available, you should then register your business name on that website.
One such website that enables you to do this is KnowEm.com (opens in a new window). KnowEm quickly checks your business name’s availability for each social media website; it also checks your name as a domain name, too. Plus, if you would rather not manually register your business name on each social media website, KnowEm can automatically register your name on each social media website for you for a nominal fee.
My recommendation: register your business name on the most popular websites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. which KnowEm identifies. At the very least, protect your business name on these websites to prevent the possibility of someone claiming your business name on these popular social media websites.
