One of the hallmarks of the modern web is the  60 Minute Profit Plan Review ability for users from every walk of life to review just about anything, from products to services to contractors. Consumers are becoming increasingly dependent on these services as their first stop when looking at buying a new product, going to a new restaurant, or hiring an independent consultant. One of the most productive things you can do for your personal brand is to build a reservoir of positive feedback on these sites, as they have high search relevance and are trusted by consumers.

At first it can be difficult for people to accept the idea of opening themselves up to critique from anyone who wants to leave a review - after all, if someone is capable of giving you positive feedback, they're also capable of giving you negative feedback. The thing is, just because you don't actively pursue these review sites doesn't mean you won't appear on them, it just means you will have much less influence in who is reviewing you. Anyone can create a profile for you to review your service, whether you want them to or not. By taking a proactive stance you stand a much better chance of generating positive feedback, as well as managing negative feedback when it does inevitably crop up.

Once you have a profile on the major review sites, make it as easy as possible for your customers to post positive reviews for you. Try to avoid actively soliciting their reviews, though, as this will generally not work, and may frustrate clients. Just do your best to have very visible links from your sites to the most important review sites, and consider including a "Review me on Yelp!" or similar note on business cards or other bits of media.
