With the widespread use of forums, discussion groups, blogs, review sites and social media (such as Facebook & Twitter), it is very easy for Internet users to post their opinions and rants. This content can be positive but it can also be negative with wide ranging consequences.

The essence of online reputation management is ongoing research accompanied by a strategy and tactics to deal with the individual situations found.

This webinar will take you through the 4-step process of building an effective reputation management strategy.

  5. 5. Why Bother With Your Online Reputation? “While your phone book might be collecting dust, consumers still have a need for the type of information it contains. But in today’s digital world, they’re more inclined to look for it on the Web ... a whopping 85 percent of consumers find local business information online, where reviews, store hours, deals and maps are just a click away.” - Study by Nielsen
  6. 6. Consumer Generated Content “We have officially lost control of when and where our messages are being consumed – a fact that would be obvious if we looked at our own behavior. With the ubiquity of social media and the instant access provided by the Internet, consumers are now in control of how they interact with your brand.” - Forbes, May 2013
  7. 7. “This is generally considered one of the toughest tasks in the SEO (search engine optimization) field. You're not only fighting for rankings on (up to) 10 different sites/pages or more, you're also competing against what many feel is a strong algorithmic component in Google's engine QDD (Query Deserves Diversity). “QDD is believed to impact the types of results Google prefers to show ranking in the top 10, and biases away from strict algorithmic "strength" and towards showing a variety of different pages (positive and negative sentiment analysis is suspected by some to be a component here, hence the potential impact on reputation management campaigns).” - SEO Moz
