"Search marketing and brand monitoring are the highest priorities, especially for the Marketing and Compliance departments of direct selling and network marketing companies," said Tina Rawlins, Crandall's colleague and the author of MLM Brands.

Today, brand real estate in search is susceptible to negative visibility--gripe sites, complaints, trademark infringement, trademark dilution, copyright violation, traffic diversion, competitive malice and deception, compliance, and many other hazards riddle branded search visibility. Instruction on initiatives to monitor and protect your brand is prepared by Crandall and Rawlins to help manage online brand real estate before a major issue arises. Their cohesive brand management philosophy on the web for brands of all industries is: Why wait until the damage is done?
To further showcase the methodology and demonstrate the areas of opportunity, Crandall has published a short Brand Command case study utilizing the brand real estate of Proactiv Solution on Google.
