If you take al look through the online, you will see a huge amount of clients who are absolutely over the moon with the service that they received. There are a he range of benefits for individuals and for businesses when it comes to using a reputation management service and as someone who’s business is currently using such a company, I completely understand where these clients are coming from with their reviews.
If you aren’t sure whether or not this kind of thing would work for you and your business, here are just a few reasons why so many of these customers are happy with the service that they received.
Many clients reached out to a rep management firm after discovering that something terrible had been written about them online, which was strictly untrue. What comes after this, is a huge learning curve for businesses and business owners, about the fragility of their online reputation and just how important it is to protect it. Most people don’t realize this until after something has happened, perhaps you can learn from these people and get a ahead of the curve.
Many businesses who have written reviews also state that for many years they would be working towards trying to build their brand, but there was always something pulling them back. In some cases these owners were recommended a rep management company, and in this instances they swiftly realized that what was preventing them from growing their brand, was a lot of negative stuff written about them online from the past, when they were just starting out. If you use a rep management company you can make sure that the internet is representative of who you are now, and what your business is currently providing.
Another reason why many of these clients wrote reviews, or at least why they used a rep management company, was because they had toxic partnerships. What I mean by toxic partnerships is partners in business who have been found guilty of foul play. What happens in such an event is that the world considers your business to be the same as your partners, in terms of being dirty, and then you are tarred with that brush for a very long time. In this kind of situation a reputation management company can easily help you and your business sever ties online with the toxic partner.
Interestingly I saw a lot of graduates posting reviews about how the reputation management company had helped them to clean up their online image ahead of a job interview. I had never thought about it before but it does make sense that if you are going for a position as a lawyer, you don’t want your future boss to be pulling up embarrassing photos of a trip you took to Ibiza when you were 18.
Reputation management companies do a great deal of good work for businesses and individuals, why not give them a try?
