Want a Wikipedia Page?

  1. 1. Want a Wikipedia Page?
  2. 2. Why Would You Want a Wikipedia Page? Anyone can have a blog or a Facebook Page. But, it takes a very special person to qualify for a Wikipedia Page! 1. It will establish credibility. Since a Wikipedia Page comes up #1 or #2 in most search engines, it shows the world that you have established a level of notability in the world. People recognize that it is very difficult to get a Wikipedia Page. 2. It works as an independent third party endorsement of your thought leadership, concept, or product. This might make a difference when you are being considered for a speaking engagement, book publishing deal, or consulting contract. 3. It helps your Klout Score and other social scores. This counts as “offline influence” for most social scoring systems and can add a hefty boost to your Klout Score (10 - 20 points), thus showing the world that you have a lot of influence.
  3. 3. Do You Qualify? Have you been FEATURED in major media publications – for example - Wall Street Journal, CNN, Entrepreneur Magazine – national publications? Are the articles ABOUT you, not BY you? Have you been interviewed by a major media outlet – TV, print, radio, online? Sometimes it is your business, product, book, or service that might qualify. If you have 8-10 items of “significant media coverage,” you might qualify.
  4. 4. If you qualify, how do you get one? ● Wikipedia guidelines are very confusing about this. You aren’t allowed to write it yourself. And, it isn’t proper to let one of your employees or team members write it. ● After searching high and low to solve this mystery, I concluded that I could best serve my clients if I offered to create Wikipedia Pages as part of my services. ● If you’d like my editorial team to evaluate whether you qualify or not, please complete this quick survey:
  5. 5. What are the risks of getting a page? ● Risks: Please be advised that there are risks associated with this investment as Wikipedia is a “crowd sourced” website which allows many people – thousands of independent Wikipedia editors – to modify and remove pages at will. Here are some of the risks associated: ● – the page may be removed if the Wikipedia community believes that you do not meet the “notability*” requirement, ● – the page may be modified (added to by others) if there is (or has been) a public scandal/lawsuit/criminal investigation, ● – the page will be written in an objective style (versus a marketing style), ● – the page may not include things that you believe should be included (must meet Wikipedia guidelines), and ● – the page may include your birth date, birth location, parent names, and other info that may increase risk of identity theft or fraud (this info can be left out if desired – however, another Wikipedia editor might add this info).
  6. 6. Why hire me to do this for you? ● My team has been creating these pages for people for several years. We’ve learned the special Wikipedia procedures, formatting, and guidelines that are needed for a successful page. ● My team is discrete and operates with stealth. Over the years, we’ve learned what causes pages to have problems on Wikipedia, or even to be removed. We’ve developed protocols which protect our clients from problems and aggressive Wikipedia editors. ● I am Gina Carr, the team leader. I have an MBA from Harvard and an engineering degree from Georgia Tech. You can learn more about me at www.GinaCarr.com. ● Example pages will be provided upon request at gina at ginacarr.com.
  7. 7. Time Frame ● Time Frame: The time from the “order date” to the “publish” date can take as long as 30 days. ● If you would like to RUSH the project, you can pay a RUSH fee of an additional $250. Let me know if you need this link.
  8. 8. Guarantee ● Guarantee: I guarantee that the page will get published on Wikipedia. That is, it will make it through the initial screening and become a Wikipedia page. ● After that, the Wikipedia community takes over. ● If the page is not viewable (available for public viewing) on Wikipedia 5 days after first being published, I will refund 50% of the fee. During this 5 day period, I will work diligently with my team of Wikipedia editors to resolve any disputes from Wikipedia editors with regard to your credentials.
  9. 9. Investment ● Premium Page* - with Photo or Logo - $1500 *Photo/Logo to be installed after 90 days of “publish date.” **Includes 30 days Maintenance – reviewing for changes made by others, incorporating changes requested by you (if appropriate). Value: $100. Ongoing maintenance can be purchased after the page has been published. Payment is considered acceptance of these terms and conditions.
