What’s in a Name? EVERYTHING!

Posted on: October 23rd, 2014 by Neworld Coaching No Comments

Here's an Idea

Whether is it “Naming” your Company or “Naming” a new Product, keep your Brand Identity intact and consider these points…

  • Easy to market
  • Simple to spell and pronounce
  • Effortless to remember
  • Is not comprised of Spam Words
  • Conveys your competitive edge
  • Stirs client interest
  • Represents what you represent
  • Doesn’t confuse you with a similar business
  • Sells itself with no explanation
  • Has a positive ring to it
  • Doesn’t limit you to your geographical location
  • Attracts the types of clients that you want
  • Doesn’t limit the expansion of the business
  • Not too “trendy” (trends fade and so will you)

Have you Considered your Virtual Estate?

Posted on: September 18th, 2014 by Neworld Coaching No Comments

Dawn Fletcher
They say that necessity is the mother of invention…

and with Social Networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, it has become a necessity to consider your own “Virtual Estate” as something that will need to be handled in the case of your death.

With literally billions of personal and business profiles on the internet, the time has come to include clear instructions regarding your online information, how it is treated and whom (if anyone) it should become accessible to.

Recently I was asked what I would do with Michael’s profile if he were to die. Simple really… I would just find a way to memorialize him in some way and basically close down his personal online presence completely.  Then I thought… What if we both met with an untimely death at the same time?  What then? Who would take care of all the information and all of the friends and followers etc?

Naturally, the big 3 Social Sites have policies when it comes to death etc and this month l share the information I have found on Facebook.

According to the Help Center:

Memorializing the account:
It is our policy to memorialize all deceased users’ accounts on the site. When an account is memorialized, only confirmed friends can see the profile (timeline) or locate it in Search. The profile (timeline) will also no longer appear in the Suggestions section of the Home page. Friends and family can leave posts in remembrance.
In order to protect the privacy of the deceased user, we cannot provide login information for the account to anyone. However, once an account has been memorialized, it is completely secure and cannot be accessed or altered by anyone.

Removing the account:
We will process certain special requests for verified immediate family members, including requests to remove a loved one’s account. This will completely remove the profile (timeline) and all associated content from Facebook, so no one can view it.
For all special requests, we require verification that you are an immediate family member or executor. Requests will not be processed if we are unable to verify your relationship to the deceased.

Examples of documentation that we will accept include:

  • The deceased’s birth certificate
  • The deceased’s death certificate
  • Proof of authority under local law that you are the lawful representative of the deceased or his/her estate.

Personally I think that this is handled very well by Facebook.  I can appreciate their efforts to simply make the data unavailable to anyone.  After all… would you want your entire inbox falling into the hands of a family member after your death?  Most likely not!  It would be like reading a diary or personal notes.  All the more important to designate someone NOW that you trust to enter your account… take care of a few tasks for you if you want them done (like exporting pictures or friend lists to send a special note to etc) and then notify the Social Site according to their policy of your passing.

I find it amazing that we are considering a “Virtual Estate” as part of a determination of our wishes after death.  It is shocking how far the World Wide Web has come… and how quickly!
