Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 01, 2013
Small and medium-sized businesses can no longer take their online reputations for granted if they want to survive in today’s markets. Online reputation is now an essential element of any successful business and marketing plan; but alongside simply handling daily productivity and employee management, few local companies have the budget, manpower, or expertise to analyze and understand where their online reputation currently stands, much take effective control of it. Recognizing this challenge, MyRepBuddy has been launched as an innovative and powerful online reputation management platform.
MyRepBuddy employs intelligent, real-time data monitoring and gathering to help clients gain a complete overview of their online reputation—especially those potentially harmful conversations that could be converted into positive interactions. Collected data is verified, and inconsistent business listings and database entries are flagged for correction to help establish an accurate and professional online presence.
At the same time, MyRepBuddy automatically retrieves ratings, reviews, and mentions from Yelp, 411.com, Citysearch, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, blogs, and dozens of other popular sources, so SMB owners are aware of the digital conversations surrounding their business and are equipped to respond appropriately. All of this data is distilled into easy-to-comprehend competition comparison graphs, email alerts, and periodic executive reports .
Marc Trimble, co-founder of the MyRepBuddy development team, had this to say about the platform launch: “The harsh truth is that many local businesses don’t have the budgets necessary to overcome poor company perceptions online. At the same time, if ignored, negative digital reviews and conversations can entirely wreck their chances for survival. So we developed MyRepBuddy to offer the most cost-effective, convenient, and customizable online reputation management platform around!”
MyRepBuddy is linked with another powerful digital marketing platform, Local Checkmate, which puts local businesses in the search engine spotlight, driving new business and sales while establishing a company’s digital brand footprint. MyRepBuddy ensures that when a business starts showing up on front page search engine results, browsers see positive reviews and testimonials, encouraging higher conversion rates and long-term customer loyalty.
“MyRepBuddy is our direct response to an increasing demand for cost-effective tools that allow businesses to monitor their reviews, improve their online visibility, and increase their social audiences—not just in a reactive scramble, but proactively...in real time!” said Marc.
MyRepBuddy helps businesses connect with customer conversations, confirms online listings, and analyzes how they stack up against their competition. To learn more, visit MyRepBuddy’s main site at http://MyRepBuddy.net.
