This post was from a draft a few month ago in a day after I plan to buy a domain name from some domain names provider website.
At that time I was searching a domain names for ‘filani.com’ which is my last name in my born certificate. I think that’s a catchy name for a domain name and will be easy to remember URL too.
And whoops! the result was surprise me.
Because the domain name was already ‘for sale’ Surprise surprise! I am not too surprise actually, because this is internet and billion people access it every day, and maybe dozen or maybe hundred peoples have the similar name in my country alone.
Yeah! but the price of ‘for sale domain name’ thats what make me forget to breath for a moment, but ya! whats happen let it happen.
I just take it as a lesson, thats how really important to buy your digital ID is. What I mean with digital ID here is having a website using your name as domain name.
Time is ticking out and I don’t want to make the same mistake again then I search a domain name for ‘hermansyahfilani.com‘ and Thank God it still available.
As fast as Peregrine Falcon catches their prey, I just purchase my domain names immediately.
So! thats why here I wanna share my opinion about reason why you need digital ID and why its important for the future, Your future!
Here is the 5 reason why you should have it from my perspective.
Good for your business and career
In this digital age, having a personal website using your name as it domain names and URL matches is an advantage. Whether you are a business man, athlete, author, artist, musician or any kind of your great profession is, it will make you undeniable in your field.
But most of folks still under estimate its power. Most of peeps think that its unnecessary stuff, or think; “that’s just for famous peoples, I just a small business owner. ” and so on something like that.
Oh.. come on! anything big always start with the small ones right? Why not take this as an advantage to grow and strengthen your business and career in the future.
Its #1 for build personal branding
Building personal branding is not easy thing, no matter how many book/e-book you’ve read, how many webinar/seminar you have go to.
Still you will need times, effort and resource to build it. And having your own name as your personal website URL is one of the best resource.
Really help you to build trust
To build a wide network, audience, fan or friend. What all you need is a trust. To make people trust you is not an easy task these days.
Especially in digital world, since internet is full of scams, fraud and list goes on. It definitely really really help your ass. People will easily to recognize you as you, for example (“Oh I know that dude, he help me to fix my problem on his website”) something like that.
Verified internet user
You may have a deal with a spam account on social media. Yeah! me either. Spam account is like wild grass, its getting worts and worst all the time.
Thats why, it also will make people not think or suspect you as a spam profile on this madness internet world. Make you as a verified person in this digital world.
Take it before someone else did
Take it before your neighbor that her or his name who have similar name as yours take it. It will be an epic joke you know.
Just closing words
Thats my perception about how really important for having a digital ID in this digital age, a sallow perception but I believe will become deep in the future. Unless you want go back to primitive world it may not important things (just sayin)
Anyway! perception is just a matter of perception, opinion can’t change the world I know, but can change our own luck for sure. If we can change our own luck then I am pretty sure we can change our world.
If you have any thought about it, whether you agree or disagree with me please share your opinion in comment section, I really appreciate it you do that.
Or if you see something incomplete or miss perception in my post maybe? please just let me know.
By the way thanks for visiting my blog, have a great day!
