There is no better indication of a company’s reputation than online testimonials written by real customers. Potential customers rely heavily on the words written by previous customers and will often gravitate towards the product or service that yields the most positive reviews, regardless of price (within reason). Like anything else, it only takes a few seconds to make a good first impression so if bad testimonials are featured at the top of Google, Facebook or Yelp, it will likely have an impact.
There is no time like the present to take matters into your own hands, or have Planet 8 Digital take the reigns for you! A benefit of reputation management is a big bump in the search engine results pages. Google has shown that businesses with more favorable testimonials and/or star ratings are more likely to appear in the top spots.

A simple process that we at Planet 8 Digital like to follow is reward the good, and respect the bad. By keeping this in mind, we like to thank the good reviewers and give them incentives to bring their friends back next time! On the other side, apologizing to the negative reviewers is of paramount importance and assure them that the mistakes will never happen again. But to top it off, also offer them incentives to come back BEFORE they completely disregard your brand.
In addition to our simple process, we understand the importance of quick and timely responses; there’s no point in letting the negative thoughts linger in the customer’s head for days, if not weeks. So it’s in everybody’s best interest to address the customers immediately.
With Planet 8 Digital, consider your online reputation managed!
Online reputation management, or ORM, is the process of managing the online information about a person, company, or brand. The primary goal of ORM is to establish an accurate, sustainable, and controllable search landscape that represents the full arc of an organization.
Online reputation management involves publishing and optimizing digital content to control the first page of Google. A typical ORM strategy may include review management, social media marketing, search engine optimization, and customer service tactics.
Duration 1-8 weeks – If the problem you are having is with negative content, and that content can be removed at the source, it can take as little as one week, or as long as a few months to remove a web page. Factors affecting duration include whether we have a relationship with the site, can contact the publisher, and if the publisher agrees to removal.
Duration 1-2 weeks – Reviews that violate the Terms of Service (TOS) of the review platform can often be removed in a few days or weeks depending on the responsiveness of the platform. Reviews that do not violate the TOS can usually only be removed by the individual that posted the review. Sometimes that individual can be convinced to update or remove a negative review.
Duration: Early results: 8 weeks. Completion: 6-12 months – reputation repair (excluding removals) that involves pushing negative content down and positive content up takes about two months to begin working in most cases. The average reputation repair campaign takes 6 to 10 months for satisfactory results.
