An introduction to Online Reputation Management

An introduction to Online Reputation Management

Online Reputation Management (ORM) is vital to protecting your brand online.  Online Reputation Management is the latest trend in the online advertising world. The concept of Online Reputation Management was derived to help corporations, business owners and professionals dealing with negative comments in the web.  It is important to handle your promotional campaign in such a way so as to protect your positive image and brand online as a simple Facebook status or blog entry can damage your reputation.

Develop innovative promotional strategies

Your organization’s online reputation depends on how other people, especially the customers, look at your company. A disgruntled client is more than enough in order to destroy your own status among potential customers. Hence, to protect your brand online, it is important to create highly effective promotional campaigns, securing more customers.

Monitor your online status regularly

Most companies or professionals turn to online reputation management as a reactive approach to existing negative comments in the search engines. But, you should verify periodically your online presence in the web to ensure your positive image.
