Tips For Reputation Management

  • Always keep it positive – Like-for-like retaliation is not a wise approach when dealing with a reputation attack. Take control of your own online spaces and focus on keeping them positive, safe and secure. Interact with users on social media – engage positively with your audience.
  • Technical solutions – Preventative and reactive strategies can be created using filtering, blocking, monitoring programs and AI/machine learning tools. Learn what tools are available and how to use them effectively.
  • Invest wisely – Developing healthy pro-active reputation management is now a crucial element of business that requires time and money. Identify the areas you need to focus on and invest wherever possible.
  • Never argue online – Publically defending yourself may seem the natural and fair thing to do but this can often trigger more negative online content. Avoid arguments and always try to engage pro-actively.
  • Legal Counsel – In some cases, legal action may be an option. Ensure you have legal resources that can help identify issues such as copyright infringement, slander/deformation and data theft.
  • Prevention – Monitoring your reputation with search engine alerts can help keep you one step ahead in responding positively to issues, before they become bigger problems.
