Reputation management services are usually purchased by businesses — businesses with money to spend and Yelp ratings to repair. Although there are some exciting dustups in the world of corporate reputation management, when it comes to individual reputation things can get... personal. Here's a guide on how to do personal reputation management, tips, tricks, and checklists.
Reputation matters, whether you’re an ordinary individual, an extraordinary individual, a crook, a saint, a political figure, or an entertainer. But reputation matters for more than just individuals. In the world of business, reputation has an ever broader impact.
Corporate sentiment, or business sentiment, is how people feel about a brand. In more technical terms, it’s the level of confidence that shareholders have in a corporation or business—the prevailing mood or attitude about that company’s success (or lack thereof).
In today’s digital environment, reputation is more important, more pervasive, more unforgettable, and more meaningful than ever before. It’s easy to neglect, abuse, reject, or shred a reputation. It’s difficult to build, sustain, protect, and enhance a reputation. It can happen in minutes, and circle the globe within hours.
