What is Online Reputation Management?

First, let’s define an online reputation. The way people see your business online by reading reviews, interacting on social media, reading news articles or other information makes up your online reputation.

Managing your online reputation isn’t necessarily difficult, but you have to know what activities will deliver the most value. For a local business requesting reviews and responding to reviews are critical. Also, how you engage with your local community can be just as important.

Why Does a Local Business Need Reputation Management?

Over the last several years, there has been a huge spike in “near me” searches.

For example, “service + “near me”.

More and more people are relying on Google Maps and other map platforms to help them find products and services that will solve their problems.

When people find your business, do they get a good first impression or do they run away?

Online reputation management can help your business reach more customers and close more deals.

  • Positive First Impressions

  • Convert More Customers

  • Show Customers You Care

  • Improve Your Online Rankings

  • Increase Customer Loyalty
