Quickly Earning 5 Figure Paychecks With Reputation Management Services
A good reputation is synonymous with success. Public perception can make or break a business or an individual. Which is precisely why everybody, from Presidents to fortune 500 companies to celebrities spend enormous sums of money on reputation management services.
It is estimated that the corporate expenditure for reputation management exceeded a cool 4 billion dollars for the year 2014 alone!
Seems like a lot right? Well, what wouldn’t you give to have that super embarrassing pic taken off facebook, or move that nasty article on Page 1 of Google about you or your business?!
For Businesses and Business Persons, that need is MUCH greater – and they will go to any cost to take care of it!
Our lives have become increasingly intertwined with the web and consequently, the boundaries between the real and the virtual have collapsed. This is good – it keeps people honest and more importantly, it is going to put cash in your pocket! Providing reputation management services is an exciting money making opportunity. If you are even remotely web-savvy and have half decent PR skills, you will enjoy it immensely AND earn some serious pay checks in the process.
The internet has been credited with leveling out the playing field. Earlier, people watched whatever was being broadcasted on the TV or radio. This made them easier to manipulate and control. Now, people have the means of making educated decisions about everything they do – be it taking a vacation, buying a house or even marrying an individual.
On the flip side, just a couple of bad reviews can spoil can tarnish the public image of any entity – forever!
This is especially true for small businesses. A single bitter, vengeful customer can wreak havoc on the internet and malign the reputation of an otherwise perfectly ethical business. Mischievous friends can post compromising college pics of moms and a person trying to make a new beginning can never escape from his/her past.
This is when you come to the rescue!
People and businesses are willing to pay big bucks to maintain an unblemished, impeccable social status as this has priceless financial, political and societal benefits.
The process of reputation management is fairly simple:
- You remove all the bad content about your client from the first three of four pages of Google.
- You improve the desired public image of your client by posting loads of good content, AND moving up existing GOOD content they approve of.
That’s it! In short, you are doing a bit of advertising while keeping controversies to a minimum. This is a very common practice in advertising and PR circles – showcase the good, cover up the bad!
