  27. 27. According to Chris Perry of Career Rocketeer:<br />In order to manage your online reputation, you need to create an online presence, and here are the first steps:<br /><ul><li>If you have a Facebook profile, make it look neat and tidy, or restrict access to it. Make sure that your friends, in the case their profiles are publicly visible, don’t publish embarrassing pictures or videos of you.
  28. 28. Make sure you delete any pictures, videos and or articles online that might give a wrong impression of you. Even if it is simply a bad review on Ebay, make sure to leave a reply telling your part of the story. This is reputation management. Every company should do it, and you should do it too. The internet is huge and you cannot control what people write about you. But you can find the articles and make a comment on them.
  29. 29. On networking sites like LinkedIn, point out your key areas of expertise. Think of LinkedIn as your online CV with recommendations from your contacts. If you get recommendations, make sure that they are from people you trust and that have something valuable to say about you.
  30. 30. Twitter is another great tool where you can get some attention, but is also a tool which allows for real time search. That means that if you are writing about how “bad your boss is” or “how boring your job is,” you could be in big trouble. Twitter is so visible and the constant number of updates make it rank very highly. So think twice before publishing anything there</li></ul>8<br />

  44. 44. Monitor: What Others are Saying<br />According to Trackur.com, this is what you should be tracking to monitor your Social Reputation:<br />1. Your Personal Name: Whether you’re a volunteer, advocate or employee, you should monitor any media mentions of your own name. An extra tip, monitor your social networking usernames too: monitoring “andybeal” would likely not include mentions of “andybeal.”<br />2. Your Company (Charity) Name: Monitor your company name, but also monitor any likely misspellings or legacy company names. For example, United Way, but also “UnitedWay:, “UWC” etc<br />3. Your Product Brands: You may not be able to keep track of all your services and events, but you should track the ones that are the most vital to your business.<br />4. Your ED (and other execs): You should monitor all possible iterations of the ED’s name, so you can be the first to know when there might be a kudo or catastrophe looming.<br />5. Your Marketing Message: “So easy even a caveman can do it?” “Just do it!” What if those campaign slogans were accompanied by “sucks” or “I’ll never buy from them again?” Monitoring your marketing campaigns will help you understand if your message is getting across, and what your customers have to say about it.<br />
  45. 45. More to Monitor:<br />6. Your Competition: Surely you’d find value in knowing your biggest competitor just got the jump on you. <br />7. Your Industry: If you keep a watchful eye on industry trends, you can spot opportunities and potential disasters. <br />8. Your Known Weaknesses: Your brand has a weakness. If that’s a shock to you, I apologize for being the bearer of bad news. Still, it’s better I tell you now, than a customer tell the New York Times. <br />9. Your Business Partners: If you’re Boeing wouldn’t you want to know if one of your airline customers just declared bankruptcy? How does that effect your quarterly sales numbers? Identify your key business partners and make sure you know what’s happening to their business.<br />11. Your Clients’ News: Monitor the news for your clients and then send them a note to congratulate them on their accomplishments–or maybe “watch their back” if you see trouble brewing. Your retention rate will go way up! <br />12. Your Intellectual Property: If you invested the time–and expense–to register a trademark or copyright your work, shouldn’t you make sure it’s not being infringed upon? Apart from enforcing trademark infringements, you should also make sure there aren’t any cases of mistaken identity. <br />13<br />
  46. 46. Monitor: Tools<br />Google Blog Search – This is a Google beta search engine for blogs.<br />Technorati – Technorati is the leading blog search engine indexing millions of blog posts in real time. It also tracks the authority, influence and popularity of blogs.<br />TweetBeep – This tool provides hourly Twitter alerts sent via e-mail.

  47. 47. Best Practices<br />A little bit every day<br />Do good<br />Share<br />Help someone out<br />Entertain and engage<br />Build relationships<br />Moniter<br />Rinse and Repeat (Rinse away what doesn’t work, repeat what does)<br />Tips:<br />Act fast!<br />Keep everyone you know in the loop<br />Don’t count anyone out as unuseful – be open to new contacts<br />Confirm your privacy settings<br />Engage your employees<br />Have a Social Media Policy<br />Have a Social Media “Style Sheet”<br />Don’t<br />Post photos that you wouldn’t want a donor or ED to see<br />Post company business (good or bad) and inappropriate information about your current or former employer / employees / clients<br />Post the stupid stuff you do at work (eg: goofing off, playing games, flirting)<br />© Copyright Linked Into Business - All Rights Reserved<br />
