Mike Magolnick

Hi, I'm Mike Magolnick. Welcome to my profile!


With every company and client I work with, my goal is the same... I want to associate my name and experience with the DNA of a great company so that in 20 years people will look back and say, "Yes, that's the company Mike Magolnick is/was with." I feel very blessed that all 3 of my books have hit the Amazon Bestseller list. Not because I can call myself a bestselling author but because I know that I've been able to effectively help groups of people navigate the worlds of brand strategy, social / mobile media, communications and critical marketing. My personal opinion is the Twitter is the most important of the social resources on the Internet so I focus a lot of my time and training there, but I also have substantial experience across the board in social. I have extensive experience with social/mobile/digital, reputation management, corporate operations, communications, marketing, sales, brand management, strategic analysis/intelligence and business planning and often have the pleasure of speaking on these things at business meetings, conferences and seminars. (I am also available to talk to everyone through Clarity... https://clarity.fm/magolnick) I believe in work:life balance. I am a full time dance dad to 3 competitive performers and a very active school parent. I'm also active with American Mensa and I currently serve as President of North Texas Mensa, serving the 5.5 million+ people in and around Dallas, TX. Some keywords/phrases about me...

www.CREDENTL.com It's scary out there. Anyone with an Internet connection can say anything about any company or any person at any time. With search algorithms constantly changing, it's often very difficult for companies to stay on top of their online brand identity. In fact, a simple search with your company name + a derogatory term such as "scam" or "ripoff" added to the search phrase could be extremely harmful to your business growth. Reputation management isn't just a good idea. It's critical. Well executed reputation management isn't about putting up a few posts here or there, it's about a strategic plan that incorporates multiple touch points and aggressive action. It's also about a solid foundation and strong education not only for the company but for the people who have chosen or been selected to represent the company. CREDENTL incorporates a "Diamond" approach to reputation management that encompasses public relations, communications, social media and general oversight. Most companies don't even look at reputation management until it's too late and then their only strategy is a reactive one. CREDENTL is devoted to working with clients to help them monitor, manage, and control their online image, helping to fight against lost sales, distributor/employee/customer attrition, lost partnership opportunities, and plain and simple embarrassment. CREDENTL offers customized reputation management solutions tailored to meet our client's specific needs.

CEO / Founder at CREDENTL LLC

March 2013

www.CREDENTL.com I started CREDENTL as a next-level reputation management, marketing and business strategy consulting company. Our motto, "Si Vis Pacem Para Bellum," translates to "If You Want Peace, Prepare for War." The idea behind CREDENTL is in line with the Latin translation - if you want a substantial competitive advantage, build your infrastructure so strong that the only option your competitors have is to fight for second place. I designed several specific and unique selling points to the CREDENTL service including a 4-Step proprietary system of evaluation and work flow - 1) Planning Process; 2) Feedback Cycle; 3) Social Business Operations; and 4) Application and Objectives. The NEW SOCIAL MEDIA AUDIT FROM CREDENTL Social media isn't going anywhere. It's growing exponentially worldwide with no slowdown in sight and is now part of every successful business' strategy. Having a social audit done by a professional will help you fully understand where you are, including your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. WHAT DOES THE AUDIT ENCOMPASS? The social media audit will evaluate seven criteria, each with multiple sub-topics. Each piece of criteria is uniquely weighted and given a value. The final score will be calculated based on the results of each criteria (main and sub-topics) and the score will be represented as a value between 0.1 and 9.9. Once the audit is complete we will provide a written service-based solution customized for your business.
