JW Maxx Solutions knows that Internet reputation management is an important asset for organizations. Without it, it is hard to promote a business and make sure that it is easy for people to find it online. When people are looking for goods and services and companies or individuals to fulfil those needs, they go online first. They look for information and reviews to help them find the best choice. When they see something negative, they will probably move on to someone else and the company in question will lose business. However, this effect is not exclusive to companies, but applies to individuals as well.
“If you as an individual look poorly online, it is going to impact your personal life,” says JW Maxx Solutions CEO Walter Halicki, “College admission officers, potential employers, even a blind date. They all have the ability to search for you very easily, and what they find is going to change the way that they see you.”
Everyone should be concerned about personal reputation management. Even those who may not think their reputation matters may come to find that it does. Before they get caught unaware, they should follow these steps to find out how they look online and how they can improve their Internet standing.
1. Search it: Anyone can find any individual by searching their name, and that includes the individual themselves. Everyone should take the time to search for their own name and see what the results are. Perhaps the results are great, and there is no need for concern. On the other hand, there may be something there to cause alarm. Whatever the results are, individuals should at least have knowledge of how they look to others online.
2. Check social sites: Social sites can easily be seen by others, so it is important for everyone to check their accounts and see what they have shared online. It is important to make sure that what is there is neither inappropriate nor too revealing of personal information.
3. Monitor others: While an individual may be very careful about how they conduct themselves online, they may have friends or family who are not as careful. Even without meaning to, others may post things that can damage an individual’s reputation. It is important for everyone to be aware of what others are saying and sharing about them at all times
