3 Things Entrepreneurs Can Do To Protect Their Online Reputation

 

Its no secret that reputation is everything. Especially in the internet age where people can write a review on Facebook and watch it go viral in a matter of minutes. If you are an entrepreneur, no matter what type of business you are in, protecting your online reputation is one of the most important things you will ever do.

Here are 3 simple things you can do right now to protect your online reputation:

#1 – Be Proactive

The best way to protect your online reputation is to be proactive instead of reactive. Most companies wait until the damage has been done before reaching out to an online reputation management company for help. Some companies don’t even realize they have a problem until sales start declining… THEN they seek internet reputation repair. No good.

While you can fix bad reviews, it can take months, and in some cases years, to do so. That’s why your number one goal should be avoiding getting to that point in the first place. You should focus on controlling the top 20 spots in Google and all other major search engines. An online reputation management service can be helpful with that.

When you control the top 20 spots, it will be very difficult for any negative information to suddenly appear on the first page of the search engines.

#2 – Own Your Brand Name On All Major Social Media

It is vital you claim your brand name on all major social media networks before anyone else does. Even if you have no plans of posting to them anytime soon, having them is still a great way to control your online reputation. The top 7 social media platforms you should set up accounts on are Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest, LinkedIn and YouTube.

#3 – Learn Basic Search Engine Optimization

Google rewards websites and blogs that are properly optimized for the search engines. The number one rule of search engine optimization is to create content you know your users will love. Its all about providing as much value as you can. After you provide value you can focus on sprinkling in various keywords throughout the content. This is what will tell Google what your page is all about.

Fabletics’ Plans to Open More Stores

Fabletics is a new fashion company that majorly deals with fashionable yoga pants. Its products are affordable since they offer discounts to their customers. The co-founder of the business, Kate Hudson, designs her apparels to make the consumer feel sexy. Different types of memberships are offered by the company to its members, and the best of all is the VIP membership. VIP shoppers buy clothes at a lower price for example; they pay only 49.95 dollars for three Fabletics that have a regular price of 100 dollars.

Products from Fabletics are sold online. VIP members get a recommendation of the best outfits for them every month. The company sends a new set of handpicked outfits to the user on every first day of the month. The user logs into her Fabletics account at the beginning of the month to make a selection or to choose the ‘skip this month’ option. If the consumer fails to log in by the fifth of every month, 49.95 dollars, which is the minimum cost of an outfit, is credited to their account. The handpicked outfits are not shipped without approval, and the consumer can use the 49.95 dollars credited to her account in making a different purchase. Membership can be canceled by calling 1-844-322-5384. Customers can return products for exchange for free and a restocking fee of 5.95 dollars is charged by the company if the client asks for a refund.

Fabletics is currently growing at a fast rate. The company has a plan of opening about seventy-five to one hundred physical stores in the next five years or less.

The stores will enable the shoppers to try the Fabletics clothing by fitting themselves and also give the company’s staff a platform of encouraging the customers to subscribe to its online service. The advantages of the online service are the great discounts that customers enjoy when the products are sent to them once a month and charged on their credit card.

The co-CEO of JustFab (The parent company of Fabletics), Mr. Adam Goldenberg, told the Forbes magazine that the firm has been receiving complaints from users who do not understand the subscription service, but currently, the complaints have reduced to about 5 to 10 per month. He still considers the complaints as too many even though the company sells about 800,000 commodities each month. This is an indicator that the customers like the program. Forbes research through the Better Business Bureau on the effectiveness of the JustFab online distribution systems indicated that the company currently receives few problems about its service. All subsidiaries of the enterprise such as Fabletics are currently listed separately.

What to do in the Face of Mud Slinging

If you have a career, or even a job, it is likely that at some point in your professional career, you will face some level of criticism. Whether it be from your boss, colleagues, clients, or competitors, it is nearly impossible to go your whole career without some level of criticism. But it is very important to know what to do in these situations so as to protect your individual reputation as a person and as a professional in your field.

According to searchcleanup.com, the most important thing you can do when someone is attacking your reputation is to take the high-road. If you are an entrepreneur this can be particularly difficult sometimes, because your reputation is everything that you have worked so hard to build. Without the trust of your current and potential customers, you will not have a business at all. Therefore, it is easy to get defensive in the face of negativity. However, Forbes.com warns that by playing dirty back, you could cause greater damage. In a recent article posted to their website, they listed the five top ways that you can avoid such disaster.

First they start out by reiterating that it is important not to get into a mud slinging match. Of course it is easy to hit back when someone strikes you first, but try to keep in mind that by hitting back, you are not actually solving anything. Try to keep your character in tact by ignoring the enemy’s comments and remarks. Secondly, they advise that it is a good idea to reassure your clients that business will continue to go on as usual. It is natural for your customers to fear a disruption in your business in this time, so you will want to remind them of what makes you great by avoiding to become distracted with the negativity. It is also a good idea to remind your customers of the current value you hold by offering them even more value. You can do this by providing more content, products, or promotions to fit your customers biggest needs. If you start to feel overwhelmed in the process, it is important to reach out for help. Searchcleanup.com is an excellent resource for cleaning up bad news online if you are looking for any further assistance.

Is Laidlaw in Over it’s Head?

It seems that Laidlaw has bitten off more than it can chew. Relmada Therapeutics recently amended their complaint to the investment and brokerage firm. They include even further charges against Laidlaw in Nevada. Relmada succeeded in including both the failure of fiduciary duty as well as fees associated with damages to their list of complaints against Laidlaw. Relmada’s success in the past year should have yielded higher stock prices. Yet its stocks have declined because of Laidlaw’s consultations.

Relmada Therapeutics Files Amended Complaint Against Laidlaw and Its Principals, Matthew Eitner and James Ahern

Laidlaw and Co has had a losing streak for awhile, with more that 60 complaints under its belt to date. Laidlaw showed a failure to establish and implement adequate policies concerning anti-money laundering. They also had a failure to report customer complaints and monetary damages. Finally, Laidlaw created and distributed misleading, exaggerated and incomplete communications with the public. Principals James Ahern and Matthew Eitner have interesting backgrounds. James claimed he graduated from Assumption College in 2002. However, official college records don’t show him attending past the year 2000. He holds no degree, and at 36 years old, he has little experience to run a major investment and brokerage firm. Matthew Eitner doesn’t fare much better. This 38-year-old with a B.S. in criminal justice has no business working with a pharmaceutical company. Matthew has zero experience on healthcare, pharmaceutical and biotechnology business. Why then is he managing the investments of Relmada? It’s not a surprise that there are problems between these two companies. This is a warning to anyone investing in a company using Laidlaw: expect some drawbacks if you use this firm.

Securus Technologies Getting Bigger and Better

Rick Smith is the head of Securus Technologies headquartered in Dallas, Texas and is dedicated to improving his company’s concepts about communication connecting the prisoners with attorneys, friends, and family on the outside. Securus recently acquired JPay Inc., an electronic payment system being used in prison facilities in 33 states. On June 7, 2016, Securus sent out a press release listing numerous criticisms of Global Tel Link (GTL) and that company’s accused business wrongdoings which in a report by PR Newswire include overcharging customers and falsifying actual times reporting on accounts held by the friends and family paying for communications from outside the prison, itself.

Securus America has committed itself to bridge the communication gap between those in prison paying for their crimes and friends and family of the convicted having to pay to stay in contact with those convicted. Sadly, the responsibility to maintain the emotional connection has in the past been placed on those outside the institution, itself. But with Securus, that is rapidly changing. No longer is it necessary to drive to a facility housing the convicted and facing dehumanizing conditions including the indignity of full body searches. No more long, exhausting drives and the lodging expenses for those who want and need to visit their loved ones. Thanks to Securus an almost intimate video and audio experience has been made possible. While the charges for this monitored audio and video call may seem expensive, the costs are much smaller and pale in comparison to the emotional and monetary costs faced by having to visit the facility and to be subjected to the harshness and near barbarity of the facility, and only at a time which is convenient for the institution and not for the visitor.

Igor Cornelsen is closely watching the Brazilian economy

Brazil’s economy struggled throughout 2015. Their populist president was unable to pass any policies that would cause economic growth. Typically, investors expect banks to struggle during a period of economic upheaval but the top private banks in Brazil were successful throughout the last year. Itau Unibanco and Banco Bradesco both saw their shares rise throughout 2014. Itau was especially successful during the third quarter of 2014. They were up 36% compared to the previous year. Bradesco was 28% better during the third quarter. This performance was truly impressive.

How did these Brazilian banks survive and thrive throughout the economic storm. Igor Cornelsen knows the secret to the success of these banks.

Knowing the market is absolutely critical for any company, and Igor believes that both banks had a deep knowledge of the market. Igor also believes that both banks had experience dealing with turbulent times. South America is particularly vulnerable to economic storms, so the banks were ready for any crisis.

Igor Cornelsen stated that banks in Brazil are tightly controlling their loans. They are only lending to credit-worthy borrowers to avoid major losses. This lowers costs because banks do not have to spend as much time researching clients or trying to collect on loans. The situation does put borrowers with limited credit in a tough situation, but Igor believes that is not the banks problem. The Brazilian government must issue reforms that will open banking up for more people.

Igor Cornelsen – Colorado, Bainbridge Investments

Brazil is in a tough situation, so many potential investors wonder why they should bother with the country. Brazil is actually in a great situation if their government ever recovers. The country has an abundance of natural resources. The country also has a deep need for infrastructure meaning that any economic recovery will feature a number of building projects. Brazil is also one of the world’s top food suppliers. Brazil is easily the most lucrative play in South America.

Igor Cornelsen believes that Brazil is a great play, but investors must recognize several basic principles of the Brazilian market. You must pay attention to the role of the banks. The political situation could change on a dime and change your fortunes. China is investing heavily in the region, and they rarely make poor plays. Finally, investors must pay close attention to the value of Brazilian currency. By watching these signs, investors ensure that they will not miss out.

Brazil is in a rough position right now, but they can recover. You can bet that Igor Cornelsen will be a part of the Brazilian recovery. This expert investor has closely analyzed the Brazilian market and he is confident that he will catch the Brazilian economic recovery. Investors should closely watch Igor Cornelsen, because his next move could make them millions.

1.3 Million Required to Prove I.D. In-Person for Venezuelan Recall

The recall referendum in Venezuela has taken a dramatic turn. The National Electoral Council (CNE) of Venezuela has issued a stunning ruling. All 1.3 million people who signed the petition to have President Nicolas Maduro recalled must appear in-person at local election offices to confirm their identity. The reason this is so shocking is because the law previously noted only roughly 200,000 people were originally required to prove their identity per the law.
Expert Jose Manuel Gonzalez is crying foul about the change in rules. The CNE has long been considered overly sympathetic to Maduro and his party. Regardless, the ruling has to stand unless the courts intervene in some way. That is, if the courts can intervene in this matter.

The CNE, however, has shown there were scores of irregularities on the petition roles. Both children and dead persons were listed and invalidated. 600,000 signatures were invalidated in total, which is an extremely high number. So, CNE officials’ actions cannot be blamed totally on bias.

The possibility of the recall referendum going forward according to Gonzalez may very much be in doubt at this point. 1.3 million people would have to prove their identity between June 20 and June 24. That is a very small window for such a massive number of people. If numbers end up falling well below what is required to enact the recall referendum, then everything is sure to fall apart. Maduro would, obviously, remain in power.
