Reputation Management Contest - help a fellow Realtor not be a playboy mom
Imagine you shared a name with Tiger Woods's wife, or Heidi Fleiss's father and were trying to make a name for yourself online as a professional Realtor and responsible digital citizen. Potential clients Google you after meeting you and end up with pages and pages of scandalous references to something your famous relative had done. This is what is happening to our client and friend Carolyn Capalbo, and we want to help her. Read on, fellow bloggers, read on (it's going to be a wicked fun contest with great prizes too!).
Message from Carolyn
My name is Carolyn Capalbo, and I'm a REALTOR® in Northern Virginia. Google my name and you'll find photos of a bikini-clad Carolyn Capalbo, and articles about the Eliot Spitzer sex scandal. You can read my blog post for full details, but here's the gist:
In 2008, Eliot Spitzer was forced to resign as governor of New York due to his taste in high-end escorts. The prostitute at the center of it all is Ashley Dupre, whose mother's name also happens to be Carolyn Capalbo. Reporters began bombarding me with phone calls asking about my daughter and the governor, and even acquaintances and business associates started questioning me about it. Now I hear that Ashley Dupre is on the May cover of Playboy, so I imagine that people will start calling me again soon.
Having to explain time and again that I'm not that Carolyn Capalbo is exhausting, and it's hurting my professional reputation as well. I want my name back!
