Designing what people say about you

Unless you’re a complete a**hole, you’ve probably got at least some friends, colleagues, or customers, that are willing to publicly endorse you, or your company. Sure, they could use LinkedIn. They could use TripAdvisor too, if you’re in the hospitality business. In fact, there are probably hundreds of tools out there, that you could have them use. However, these tools are often either too complex to use, or give you little or no control over what people write about you in public.

I have therefor created a web app, which I like to refer to as a “micro blog”, which allows others to publicly endorse you, and share their endorsement with their friends. I refer to it as “The Harvester”, because it allows you to “grow love” and “bury shit”. It gives you a simple link, which you can send to your friends, from where they can write a small endorsement about you. Tip of advice; Use it in your email signature? You can also put it on your business card, as a QR code if you wish. Below is an example.

Imagine if you could get 100 people to publicly share all of your good qualities with their friends. How much would that be worth to you?

Yesterday I sent my friends a PM, with this link, asking them if they could testify to some of my good qualities. In less than 5 hours, I had 13 public endorsements. Some of them wrote about my qualities as a human being, and used words such as …

Our experience with Thomas is of an honest, good hearthed, good intentional, very reliable and responsable man to deal with

Others focused on my skillset, and wrote things such as …

Thomas Hansen is the most genius person I have ever met when it comes to IT.

Others again, would focus on what I can help others with, such as this one …

Thomas is a programming genius, and his products are safe and efficient. I would highly recommend to consider his business tools

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise the value of the above testimonials. In fact, they’re arguably worth their weight in gold! And most of these endorsements were also publicly shared by those who wrote them. I have created this in such a way, that I can easily set it up for you, or your company, if you want to use the same tool. I would argue that its main USP, is its simplicity. It allows people to extremely rapidly write something nice about you, without having to fill out complex forms, create user accounts, or any other complex steps. If you’d like to hear more about this product, feel free to toss me an email. Below are links to some examples of what my friends wrote about me.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise that these testimonials, from my close and personal friends, are worth their weight in gold for me. Thank you btw, to all of you 🙂
