KnowEm Username Check
Establishing an online brand can be somewhat tricky, what with all the different social network platforms available. You’ll ideally want to have the same identical account username on each platform you’re active on, making it easy for folks who already know your brand to find you.
But what about platforms you aren’t on, and may be active on in the future if the need arises? The smart thing to do, of course, would be to immediately create accounts with your brand’s username on those platforms, claiming and reserving them exclusively for your use whenever.
This is where KnowEm can save you a lot of time and effort. Enter your brand’s desired username, and it checks its availability on all the different social media platforms in its database—about 300 of them, it says—and reports back to you, giving you the opportunity to claim and lock away what you can.
Although you could try claiming accounts on all the social networks in KnowEm’s database, that’d be silly. Focus on the 25 most popular, that’s what you’ll want to do. With KnowEm, you don’t even break a sweat trying to figure out who those 25 are; KnowEm tells you who those are, and checks them immediately for you from the get go.
Tip: When trying to come up with a unique name for a startup, product, project, or pretty much anything you’d like to have a consistent brand and username on social networks (like, say, an author pen name), on top of domain names, you’ll want to add KnowEm to the mix of things to check before you commit to and finalize any branding decisions.
