Improving Online Reputation

Do you want to boost your scientific impact? Do you want to improve your scientific reputation?

Did you know that more visibility means more readers for your publications which means more citations? And what happens when you get cited more? Oh yeah, your scientific reputation grows.

Writing a blog and using social media are great ways to gain visibility. They allow you to get more “eyes” on what you are doing = more exposure.

Probably you already know that blogging and social media are important for scientists. But who has time for that? Maybe my consulting services for scientists can help you.

And there are many questions that can put you off.

  • Do you need to be a geek to set up a blog?
  • How often do you have to blog?
  • Twitter or Google+?
  • Do I need LinkedIn?

Don’t waste time setting up your online strategy, I can do that for you. (If you want the answers: no/ not so often / at least Twitter / it’s a must have)

You focus on doing science, I help you to show it to the world.

You choose the tool: a science blog, social media, or both. I get them ready for you.

The more scientific information that you share with the world, the bigger your reputation will be. Traditional methods like scientific journals and conferences are still number one. But you can multiply their impact with a science blog and being active in social media.

Consulting Services For Scientists

My name is Julio Peironcely and I am about to finish my PhD. I know what it takes to do science and how hard it is to find time for scientific blogging. I was doing a PhD, exercising regularly, playing basketball in a team 3x week, and I had a social life. Despite all this, I have been active with blogs and social media for years.

If I found time for blogging, you can find it too. Let me get you started.

I have managed to grow science blogs that got thousands of visitors a month. Thanks to my online activities I gained unheard visibility for a PhD. This resulted in new scientific collaborations, opportunities to present my research in traditional conferences and online media, and to get more citations than I had expected.

Let me do all this for you. These are my consulting services for scientists.

What this is not

I am not a web designer, so I won’t customize the layout and every color. I will make sure though, that your blog theme looks great and it works properly.

Blog maintenance is your task. I leave the science blog ready  for you to write. WordPress and most themes get updates that install easily. If you want to change something in your blog down the road, that is a different service. If I cannot help you with that I will recommend you other professionals.

I don’t work with blog providers (the ones that host the blog for you) like Blogger, Tumblr, or I only work with self-hosted WordPress blogs, because that’s the right choice if you are serious about science blogging. And I only want to work with you if you are serious about science blogging.
