There are management firms founded specifically to help other companies and people to control their online reputations. In a world that revolves around online interactions, these reputation management firms bring businesses and customers together to create a needed image of positive professionalism.
Businesses are not the only ones that use these reputation management firms.

Negative Reputation Defender, such as a scathing review by a disgruntled customer or bad ‘insider’ information from an employee that had been fired, need to be handled immaterially. The company should respond to the customer’s review and assure them that this experience was a mishap. The company is willing and capable of making up for those negative experiences. This will show both the customer, and other potential customers, that the company cares. They want the best experience for the customer when dealing with their product or service.

The organization will need to be proactive with social media to create an online brand that fits well with their product while being interactive with their customer base. This can be done by posting updates about new products, improvements being made, and uplifting stories about a customer’s experience with the product. Customers that come across their social media will be more inclined to enjoy their time shopping if they know the company values them as people.
