Top Three Dangers of Reputation Management Exposed by Reputation Maxx

As people hire reputation management companies to clean up their online landscape, they need to be aware of several different problems they may encounter if they choose the wrong firm.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Having a positive online reputation is becoming increasingly more important in today's digital age. People are constantly being promoted, searched for and found online, whether they like it or not. There are social media sites, blogs, websites, reviews, and pictures that can all be affiliated with someone's reputation. However, not all of this content is necessarily positive. When searching for themselves online, people may come to find that they have a negative reputation and seek to get this problem fixed.

They then may search for an online reputation management firm online and base their decision off of the promoted advertisements that they see when they type in these worlds online. While this seems like the perfect solution to clean up a dirty reputation on the web, the company may not actually be as reputable and effective in what they do as one might think. Any company can put a budget on a pay-per-click campaign; people would be better served to find a company that ranks higher on those keywords without the help of paid advertisements than with them.

One of the leading reputation management firms in the industry, located in Scottsdale, Arizona, Reputation Maxx, wants people to be aware of several problems that they may encounter and warning signs to look for before choosing these companies that appear to provide results but do not actually deliver on their promises.

Before hiring a reputation management company, be sure to check out their standings with the Better Business Bureau. Both individuals and corporate businesses have turned to these businesses and have come to be sorely disappointed with the results. The experts at Reputation Maxx have provided three dangers to be wary of before choosing these reputation companies.

1. The company may open up several domains by using the individual or company's name. However, the actual client does not own the name of themselves or of the company. The business that they hired owns these domains with their names in it, and may not be able to get them back. Before hiring these firms, one needs to be sure that they would own these assets if the contract were to be terminated. This information can be found in the company's terms and conditions.

2. When hiring a reputation management firm, it may seem like one is getting many positive results immediately. However, after some promising results have been shown, this positive momentum may start to dwindle. These firms must be made accountable for the work that they are doing by providing the client with monthly updates on the progress that is being made. Few reputation management firms actually offer this vital service.

3. Some of these reputation management businesses virtually have done nothing for a large sum of money. To prevent this from happening, be sure to have the company review the terms and conditions by pointing out and showing the client the important details they need to know.

Brand jacking is a strong possibility, and people need to watch out for it. Losing control of one's own name or company domain is a frightening prospect, and can happen if people do not watch out for it. Be aware of the credibility of the reputation management firm before choosing to hire them for their services.
