Keeping Your Marketing Efforts Secure

We all want to keep our marketing efforts secure. By now, you’ve probably heard about HeartBleed, the security loophole that is very serious for many many websites.

Time to change your password on your accounts for these websites and more: Twitter, FaceBook, GoDaddy, Tumblr, Dropbox, YouTube, Google, Vine, Pinterest, Instagram, Gmail, Foursquare, Yahoo, Amazon, SoundCloud… Basically everything.

This infograph, from LWG Consulting, says it all in very few words.

Major Sites for Marketing Efforts that are Affected By Heartbleed

Marketing efforts are not worth it if you have compromised security. Before you have a bigger problem on your hands, change your passwords on these sites.

Having a problem with your logins and getting your website or accounts stolen, not only locks you out of your own accounts, but allows someone else to post on your behalf. Which could ruin all the work of your marketing efforts. Worse, some of these sites are attached to your credit card, which can lead to credit problems.

Take the time now to switch your passwords. Make sure you keep your marketing efforts secure or you may turn a good thing into a very bad thing!
