Jan 22nd Update: Many people have been asking me for the link to my personal website. I should've included it earlier! Here's the link: sunnytrochaniak[dot]com
Creating your own website is one of the most powerful things you can do for yourself and your personal brand. According to the Huffington Post, over 80% of employers Google search applicants before inviting them to an interview, and almost 50% of them have said they changed their mind based on what they found online. This is only trending upwards; this is just the beginning.
Most people scramble to simply change their Facebook name and remove their drunken photos, and while and this may be an effective hiding strategy, you need to ask yourself this question: you are competing for a position with tens, hundreds, or even thousands of other people. Do you really want to be hiding? This is your opportunity to stand out from the crowd.
When it comes down to it, having a personal website is great at 3 things:
The other great thing about having a website is that it's online 24/7. Take a little bit of time to set up your site right now, and you will reap the rewards it provides. Your website will be at work for you even while you sleep.

Sunny is a game-changer whose analytical skills and innovative synergetic strategies allow him to over-deliver, particularly at highly-matrix organizations.
I’m a business professional with a passion for marketing, technology, relationship-building, and creating something out of nothing. While most strive to fit in, I strive to be different.
These qualities seem to have come together and brought me to where I am today. Formally, I call myself a Digital Marketing Specialist, with a heavy focus on inbound marketing. I love offering real value and establishing real relationships as a result.
My work experience and entrepreneurial ventures have offered me a fantastic opportunity to learn and experiment, refining my craft in the process. Working primarily in a B2B environment, I’ve created dynamic websites using WordPress as a CMS, performed Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to generate organic traffic, and have developed social media and email marketing strategies to generate/nurture leads. I’ve used Salesforce CRM to manage these leads and campaigns.
I’m also someone who sets out to develop the skillset I need to get things done. Because I enjoy creating, I have over 9+ years of experience (dating back to my early highschool days) with web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, & jQuery, as well as Adobe Creative Suite; primarily Photoshop.
Lastly, I understand the importance of measuring results in order to improve my actions. I do my best to track KPIs, and Google Analytics is my friend. I’m one of those people that consistently finds myself wishing there were Facebook Insights for personal profiles.
