JW Maxx Solutions, a leading online reputation management firm, knows that having a strong online reputation is vital to having a successful business. The online world is ever growing, both in size and in importance, and professionals who have not made their mark will fall by the wayside while their competitors excel. The sad truth is that many people do not realize just how important their online reputation is until it has been attacked. Only then do they take action to protect the way that they are seen on the Internet.
“There are many strategies and tools that we utilize to fix your reputation once it has been damaged,” said JW Maxx Solutions CEO and Founder Walter Halicki, “But the best way to defend your reputation is to think ahead and protect it before it has been attacked.”
While an individual can only do so much on their own when it comes to reputation management, they can start taking a proactive approach to protecting their reputation with these simple steps.
1. Monitor what is being posted online: It is important that when attacks do happen, they are caught and dealt with quickly. There are a number of online tools that can be used to monitor a business’ name online. This is an easy but effective step toward keeping a watchful eye on the business’ reputation so that it can be protected.
2. Claim an Internet presence: Today, it is very important that businesses have ways for their client base to get in touch with them and see what they are doing. When a business wants to make a spot for itself online, it needs to establish itself on major social sites and establish a connection with these customers. Positive interaction gives the business a good image and will help it fight off attacks that may occur down the road.
3. Ask for reviews: Negative reviews are some of the biggest threats to an online reputation, however if one negative review pops up in a mass of positive reviews, it is not nearly as high of a threat. People who see these reviews will assume that the negative is an anomaly, and not the norm. Many wonder how to get good reviews, but in most cases, all they have to do is ask. When a customer truly appreciates the service that they have received, they will be more than happy to leave positive feedback.
Building a strong online reputation is hard work, but it is a very important step to take.
