Here are some excellent ideas that I would like to share about online reputation management for your business. If you are a hard working businessman, your reputation is everything. You work so hard to build your client base and win referrals. The last thing you want is for a new client to Google you and choose not to do business with you because they don’t like what they see. Here are a few steps you can do quickly to manage your online reputation and avoid losing clients, money and your business because your online reputation is not as good as you thought it was.
The first step is to get a good view of what your clients are saying about you and your business. Start with a Google search with your business name, address, and your name. Take note of anything on the first 3 pages of Google that contains anything negative about your company. Next you want to search for your business on the following review sites:
Google Places: http://google.com/places
Yahoo Local: http://local.yahoo.com
Trip Advisor: http://tripadvisor.com
Ripoff Report: http://ripoffreport.com
Google Maps: http://maps.google.com
Complaints Board: http://complaintsboard.com
Pissed Consumer: http://pissedconsumer.com
Compile anything negative you find about your business on any of these websites.
The next step is to push anything negative off of the front page of Google. You do this by ranking positive things on social media and press release pages.
Start by creating social media and article pages for your business.These pages rank quickly and it’s no cost to set them up on these social media:
Facebook Fan Pages: http://facebook.com
And finally, if you want to have a little help and not do it all manually, just take a look at this video that will show you a way to manage your online reputation easily.
