  3. You’re right, a company’s online reputation can definitely make or break a business. When an issue arises, it’s important to fix it and let your customers/users know that you’ve sorted it out or are at least aware of the situation.

  6. Hi Gary,

    Yes – I agree. Regular monitoring and reporting is one of the most if not the most important part of ORM. And people tend to think that ORM is only used to combat the negative mentions etc. when in fact it allows for so much more when it comes to positive mentions and engagement to build a larger community and or business base as well as a overall positive sentiment about your business and or brand.

    1. Removing information from Google is nigh on impossible. Controlling information is a systematic and time consuming effort. Corporate reputation management needs to be handled by a professional.

  7. Online reputation management includes monitoring all those activities, which are related to your products, brand and business, and if you see any negative post then it should be removed or suppressed using ORM techniques.
