The Significance of Online Reputation Management Today

 

It’s not hard to recall the days when managing your online reputation was simply a matter of making several phone calls to the aggrieved parties, apologizing and possibly replacing a product with a new or better one. Today, any business person knows that apart from having to exchange products, there are new challenges as the customer is online keeping an eye on what you are doing all the time.

Building a solid business brand can take many years, but a negative review can bring it all down overnight. The answer to today’s problems can be found in Online Reputation Management (ORM). Today the scope of ORM is no longer merely restricted to getting rid of any negative customer comments. It now entails the development of an online strategy that will positively impact on how your entire business brand is perceived.

Why is ORM critical?

Any business stands to gain much from positive customer reviews. However, the damage that can come from negative and bad publicity can cause up to 5 times more damage, especially if such is coming from peers and friends.Negative and bad reputation will not just affect how customers perceive your business but it also has the potential of negatively affecting your bottom line in a very short period.

Efforts directed towards managing your business online reputation must not only focus on your local market, but also on the wider global impact. Even a small business today may one day decide to go international and this may become hard if your reputation out there is already damaged particularly on social media.

Negative comments and reviews that extend beyond useful criticism, those that borders on accusations, have the potential of generating negative perception, as your prospective customers can easily be swayed by such opinions.

This is what makes it extremely vital to manage your online reputation and if possible engage professional reputation managers like The Search Fixers to fix a bad online reputation.

Online Reputation Repair Services Can Help Local Businesses

 

Companies cannot afford to ignore their online reputation, even if they are a local business, since it does not take long for negative reviews and blog posts from irritated customers to hurt a business. Imagine a potential customer looking for your plumbing company’s phone number on Google, since no one using phone books anymore, and they see negative reviews and articles that put your business in a bad light. The consumer will see these results and think twice about calling your plumbing company. In fact, they will probably call one of your competitors. That’s why it’s imperative to fix bad reviews.

Unless people are posting blatant lies, or they are purposefully trying to ruin your business, there isn’t much you can do about damaging reviews. These are people’s opinions about your company’s service, and the first thing you can do is apologize for poor service. Learn from your customer’s criticisms and your business will eventually recover. Unfortunately, small, local businesses might not stay afloat while they wait for good reviews of their new, improved service, since less than one-quarter of consumers write positive online reviews of businesses that they have patronized. That’s why you may need internet reputation repair.

Airlines and other enterprise-level businesses can churn out press releases and articles to fix negative search results and consumer experiences posted online. Small business typically turn to a online reputation repair service, such as The Search Fixers, to help them recover from negative press. The Search Fixers’ reputation management consultants are similar to a public relations firm; they have their U.S.-based copywriters create positive press for businesses. You can’t stop consumers from posting negative reviews on Angie’s List or Yelp, but you can get The Search Fixers to highlight the positive aspects of your business via press releases and blog posts that can fix bad online reputation. When consumers search for your local business on Google, they will see balanced, factual information because of their reputation management services.

People also share their experiences with businesses on social media. They will recommend a good local firm to their friends, or warn people away from a local business where they had a bad experience. Besides trying to improve your online reputation, you should also look at the complaints, and correct the problems. This will help insure your next online reviews are positive ones.

Olivia Munn in For X-Men Apocalypse

Olivia Munn in For X-Men Apocalypse

Filming for X-Men: Apocalypse is supposed to begin at the end of April in and around Boraie Development . In the middle of film development, there is now more reason for fans to show excitement for this next movie.

Director Bryan Singer went to social media to formally announce that Olivia Munn is the newest member of the cast, and is set to play the mutant Psylocke in this latest installment in the X-Men movie franchise. This is the latest cast member announcement, in addition to casting Sophie Turner as a young Jean Grey, Landa Condor as Jubilee and Ben Hardy as Angel.

Munn, whose line of work includes being on Attack of the Show! and The Newsroom, has a longer acting resume than much of the cast in this movie, much like the character of Psylocke in this movie. In fact, she is supposed to be an independent player in the movie, though what filmmakers decide what to do with her in future projects is another big question.

One possible idea for Psylocke in future movies includes the potential for an X-Force movie. The ground work for that movie may start with the release of the Deadpool movie, featuring Ryan Reynolds as the lead role, combined with a Gambit solo movie that also comes out in 2016. What can be taken from this is that there and three X-Men movies slated for 2016.

Gale Gadot Gets Into Amazing Shape for Wonder Woman Role

Gal Gadot has released some new photos showing off her impressively lean and muscular physique. The actress had to work hard to get in shape for the role of Wonder Woman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and all my friends over at Amen Clinics can’t stop raving about her.

Reportedly, the producers of the film and the studio execs want their superheroes to look like MMA fighters. This is why both Batman and Superman are going to be noticeably bigger and more ripped than what we are previously accustomed to seeing on-screen with these two heroes.

Maybe after the film is released Gadot could try her hand at MMA?

She wouldn’t have time even if she wanted to. Right after completing this film, the actress will star in the Wonder Woman solo film. That means she isn’t going to be afforded any time off from the weights and treadmill. All that gym time is a must when an actor or actress’ dream to become an on-screen hero is about to come true.

Prior to the filming of The Punisher, Thomas Jane worked out a near ridiculous five hours a day in order to pack on the necessary muscle mass for the role. For Wolverine, Hugh Jackman, performed a grueling workout that helped him look like an amateur body builder.

Playing a superhero on film does mean you end up with fame that will last, well, forever. That is definitely going to provide inspiration for putting a lot of effort into scheduled gym time week after week.

Dr. Jonathan Veitch: a Force for Good

Becoming the president of Occidental College in July, 2009, was just the beginning for Jonathan Veitch. Dr. Veitch has a long and distinguished academic career leading up to his appointment as president of the Los Angeles based Occidental College.

Dr. Veitch is a California native, born in 1959 he attended Loyola High School in southern California prior to his acceptance to Stanford University. Here he graduated with a bachelor’s degree, which lead him to receive his doctoral degree in the history of American Civilization from Harvard University.

Following his graduation from Harvard, Dr. Veitch became a professor at the University of Wisconin and then a dean at the New School’s Eugene Lang College. This sterling career was highlighted by his appointment to president of Occidental College, but marked only the beginning to his dedication to education and serving the community.

Dr. Veitch has focused on improving relationships between the college and the community. In past years, local residents had to contend with parties at frat houses and other student homes. President Veitch has worked on expanding the campus in a manner that will allow the college to reuse some of the existing buildings. This will allow for a denser campus which could reduce the amount of disruptions that the local residences experience.

The vision of a well integrated college and community was highlighted on the first anniversary of Dr. Veitch’s presidency. Occidental university held a public forum for LA activists to share their visions for LA’s environmental future. This sort of dedication to the well being of the community as a whole typifies Dr. Veitch as a person. His feverish devotion to academia as well as his concern for the well being of his students is well tempered by his concern for society as a whole. His appointment as president simply highlights his capacity to be a force for good, and Occidental College will be the primary beneficiary of that drive.

Amy Pascal is one of the most well known women in Hollywood. Pascal has presided over many famous films, and she is respected by everyone who knows the movie business. When word of Pascal’s future departure in May got out, immediately everyone wondered who would be able to replace her. After all, she has grown to become great friends with people such as Will Smith, and has produced many great films including Spider Man. One name that keeps popping up to replace Pascal is Tom Rothman.

Rothman was let go from Fox studios after working with the company for nearly 20 years. In that time, he worked with director James Cameron on classic movies such as Titanic. Tom Rothman is also well liked by many people in Hollywood, has a vast network of supporters, and has great work experience in the television industry. Rothman’s vast experience makes him the heavy favorite to replace Pascal who was very successful in her own right.

Whenever a giant in an industry gets fired, moves, or retires, there is always a legitimate worry that they are going to leave a void that cannot be replaced. Amy Pascal has had a great career in Hollywood, has made great connections, and has been extremely successful in the industry. Pascal is considered a role model for many women, as she has continued to have success in a male dominated industry. However, Tom Rothman is among the leading candidates to replace Amy Pascal, according to an LA Times article, and some consider him the favorite.
