I would like to know your thoughts about my question/problem. I care a lot about online presence and I want to brand myself this period for some auditions and interviews.
My surname in my country is quite usual, so it is hard for me to have a presence on the internet where all my usernames are the same. In my opinion it is the best method to have the same username to every account you use.
I am trying to find the best and professional way to have the same username in all of my accounts (twitter, linkedin, skype, facebook e.t.c.).
I tried to use the first letter of my name with my surname like nsurname but I can't have it on all networks. My full name is big, some networks does not accept it.
The best method I thought is to build my online presence using surname jr It is available on all networks and as a .com domain and I am the junior.
My second thought is to use as a .com domain my full name, 17 letters and have all my networks as surname jr.
What is your opinion about my view?
The issue is not professionalism in my opinion but ease of brand recognition. If your surname is your brand then drop the JR from it to register a domain. Now if the surname.com is already registered I would come up with a different domain name and try that.
JR is not part of your surname but actually a qualification that there is another person with the same name.
I think when it comes to branding, consistency is key. I think you can use surnamejr to your advantage if you make a play with it on your site.
