Maintaining Reputation And Integrity To Help You Make Money With The Internet

Jun 6, 2008
There are too many sophisticated and knowledgeable bloggers and website managers in blogosphere today to try to spin rhetoric. Your reputation and integrity are priceless gifts until you lose them. Trying to regain them is nearly impossible.

You are always at an advantage if you are aware of your flaws. By being honest about them you can better prepare should they become the topic of a reputation attack, even if you are not able to correct all of them.

Many companies make mistakes regarding their reputation, and then try to cleanup the mess by trying to push down the evidence on Google. Don't wait until you're already knee-deep in a crisis. Fight reputation fires fast, keeping out future negative listings.

The very moment you see any reputation attack you should take action. You might only need a comment from the blogger's comment section, it might require your own video or blog post, or announcing what steps you're taking to resolve the issue.

The key is to respond quickly, apologize if needed, address the situation, and prevent it from becoming the lead story in the newspaper. Next, make sure you tear down those walls and become completely transparent so you regain your customers' trust.

The web empowers individuals to share even the smallest piece of information online. You need to assume everything will make its way to the web, internal memos, phone conversations, hallway chatter and behind door talks.

Even if you tell a journalist something "off the record" only speak the words you want others to know. Your readers want to know that you are truly sincere and say what you mean. Be honest and live up to the reputation so your customers keep their expectations.

Prospective customers, future employees, investors, and journalists are just a small sample of those that will turn to your own website when determining the reputation of your company. Have all they could possibly need and throw-in extra so they stay there!

A blog will allow you to hold conversations with your customers and gain priceless feedback showing you respect them. This type of sincerity provides a positive experience and a bonding between you sharing an appreciation for their valuable insight.

By building and then maintaining a well-earned reputation and integrity you will have vital components to help you make money with the Internet. Your customers and new readers will all come to realize that you consistently live up to your brand promise.
