General Online Reputation Management

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
