Has anyone ever blatantly copied your content?
Now, I haven’t been creating content that long.
But it just happened to me the week before last.
I received a form submission on my website, this individual booked a call with my sales team to conduct what we call our Continuous CyberSCORE assessment.
The next day, I was reviewing that “who has viewed your profile” section on LinkedIn, when I noticed a name that looked oddly familiar.
So I logged into our booking system, and sure enough, the person who was viewing my profile on LinkedIn, was the same person who had booked the call.
Cool I thought. He’s seen my videos!
But then I noticed his LinkedIn headline…
Looking at my LinkedIn headline, it reads, “Eliminating technology gaps without doubling costs using a unique discovery method.“
Yes, I know it’s a bit long, but that’s not the point here.
Looking at THIS individual’s LinkedIn headline, it reads, “Eliminating technology gaps in your insurance agency, without doubling costs by using a unique discovery method.”
Here is my LinkedIn banner.
And here is THIS user’s LinkedIn banner.
Now I know what they say copying is the highest form of flattery. And I’ll be honest, I am a bit flattered.
I’m a content creator with only about 2100 followers.
I must be doing something right.
Sure, I could have gotten upset and reported the use of the LinkedIn but I did the only thing I really knew how to do and that was create a video about it.
Have you ever dealt with a copycat? And if so, how did you handle it?
