About Steven W. Giovinco

With Master’s degrees from Yale University and New York University in Interactive Communications, I have 20 years experience connecting people through technology, and have gained direct experience in finance, law, television, and the arts. I started Recover Reputation because of the need to build my own online presence and saw the value in being of service to others by repairing their online reputation.

Previously, I ran my own social media and SEO business working with small businesses in the creative and marketing fields (photography, fashion/beauty, etc.). Before that, I ran Lifetime Television’s internal communication site and other applications, connecting over 500 users across the country. At Lehman Brothers I was a consultant where I redesigned their sites to be more user friendly for the 10,000 employees. Working at Citibank, Thompson Financial, NatWest Bank, Ernst and Young, I gained extensive financial and law-related experience. Besides business and technology, I also have a background in the arts, and have worked directly with art galleries, museum curators, and art collectors (and am a collector myself).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Does Online Reputation Management Take?

Each reputation repair or brand building project is different and unique. Most projects average about six months to complete, although it could be a little less or more. In most cases, you can start to see an impact within a month.

How Much Does It Cost?

Costs range depending on the severity of the issue, the urgency as well as other factors, and the return on investment (ROI) is very high. Since each project is completely customized, prices range from $500 to $30,000 for completion, with most falling somewhere in between. We offer prices that are competitive to the big companies. Since we are small, you pay for our work, not our overhead. We are also flexible with pricing arrangements and billing too, offering flat fee projects in one or two payments or upfront payments with a monthly maintenance.

 

Why Does it Take So Long?

Repairing your online reputation is complex and requires analysis, site set up and time to take effect. For example, Google does not rank recently made sites highly, so it can take months for changes to be found properly by Google. Also, it takes months to create a genuine and trustworthy online presence where sites link back to you or treat you as an industry leader. Generally, an average project takes about six months to complete.

 

What Can I Do If Someone Posts Negative Comments?

You might not be able to stop the attacks, especially if they’re anonymous. In fact, you might not want to: if they dont show up on the first page of your search results, it might be best to leave it alone; attempting to contact the poster could cause them to add additional negative posts.There are steps you can take steps to limit the potential reputation damage they could cause, however. For example, maintaining an active presence on websites like Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and YouTube can help give you a layer of protection from online attacks and also give you the tools to promote positive, truthful information about you and your business.

 

Can You Stop Slander on Social Networking Sites?

The Internet has made it easy for people–including competitors–to share opinions, and sometimes these opinions are slanderous or harmful. On many of these sites, if the comments violate the terms of service you can report the post as abuse at Facebook and YouTube. We also advise customers to engage in an online reputation management service to take control of your online reputation. Being proactive and creating a positive profile helps prevent future negative content from appearing online. Engaging with a lawyer to take legal action, however, is very costly and might not be effective.

 

What is Online Brand Building?

Google has recently changed its algorithm so just search engine optimization is not enough to get your site visible. Online brand building includes SEO as well as social media and content creation, such as article writing and blogging and is the post effective way to generate traffic that lead to sales.

 

Can Recover Reputation Make the Negative Results Disappear Forever?

Sometimes we can completely remove negative posts, especially if it includes personal information such as social security numbers, bank accounts, and your home address, for example. However, the best plan is to proliferate positive information to suppress the negative results.

 

Will My Documents Remain Confidential?

All documents are strictly confidential and your private information remains will always remain that way. Since you only work with Steven W. Giovinco, owner and founder, no one else will ever see your private information.

 

Who Are Recover Reputation’s Clients?

Since Recover Reputation is founded on protecting the privacy of our individuals and businesses, we will never disclose the names of our clients for confidentiality purposes, unless specifically instructed to do so.
