DIY TOOLS

REPUTATION SOLUTIONS

Reputation management is our craft, and our tools are advanced solutions backed with expertise.

AUDIT

Professional online reputation management services typically begins with a closer look at your digital footprint, including the identification of all positive, negative and neutral mentions of your brand on the web. This audit process is designed to root out any problems or threats your brand is facing, evaluate your strengths and weaknesses, and gain a better sense of your visibility, ranking and authority for product and industry-related search terms.

REPAIR

The online reputation management phase is usually where your ORM services are put into action. This often includes removing threats, mitigating damage, improving search rankings and creating a more positive, compelling brand presence. Generally, the repair phase of your ORM strategy combines elements of negative information removal, content suppression, asset creation, search engine optimization (SEO), online review management services and autocomplete correction to build out a more competitive online image.

Monitoring

Ongoing monitoring is crucial to keeping your online reputation management services on track. Brand monitoring is generally used to reinforce your reputation repair plan and ensure your brand is protected throughout the course of your ORM efforts. A comprehensive monitoring plan notifies you when new blogs, comments and social mentions of your brand are posted on the web, providing you adequate time to prepare a response and adjust your approach.

REPUTATION TOOLS

GOOGLE ALERTS

For DIY reputation management strategists, Google Alerts offers a simple and relatively easy way to monitor mentions of your brand online. Free to anyone with a Google account, the Google Alerts tool allows you to set up an alert that emails you anytime it recognizes a new mention of your business, ensuring you can react and respond quickly to news surrounding your brand.

Though the Alerts tool does have a number of limitations, it is fairly intuitive—and may be a good place to start if you’re taking on the challenge of online reputation management services on your own.

RANKUR

Rankur’s primary focus is on monitoring your social media presence (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc.), though it also purports to offer anything from brand and audience analytics, and web intelligence tools to web monitoring, online review management services and more. Available in tiered service packages and at different monthly subscription rates, Rankur services may help you better understand your social media footprint and how to use social channels to your advantage.

Rankur also offers “online reputation alerts” that can be customized to detect and notify you of negative online content when it appears on popular online review sites.

INFOSWEEP

InfoSweep is a digital monitoring tool providing 24/7 monitoring of your name and personal information, such as any existing or past phone numbers, addresses, or other private information that may be widely available online. Listed as a comprehensive online monitoring solution, InfoSweep offers individual and business brands customized, round-the-clock privacy monitoring that tracks your personal data and sends alerts once new info pops up on data-aggregate sites—as well as removal services for deleting your info, and that of your relatives, from hundreds of data-search sites across the web.

An easy, effective tool for monitoring and protecting your online privacy, InfoSweep memberships start at just $19/month—a cost-efficient addition to any brand’s online reputation management services strategy.

MENTION

Mention offers several monthly packages for monitoring and publishing on popular social sites. Each package comes with progressively broader coverage in terms of creating brand alerts, tracking mentions, and scheduling and publishing posts on social—though each also comes with a higher monthly price tag.

Mention’s social monitoring platform could be an effective DIY reputation management tool in terms of reining in your brand on social sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn—and for gaining insights into competitor and industry performance on social—but its usefulness begins and ends within the social media sphere. If you choose Mention, it may be best to supplement the tool with other ORM solutions for a more robust reputation management experience.

REPSCI QUIZZES

UBERSUGGEST

Neil Patel’s Ubersuggest offers a number of analytics features and services for the do-it-yourself brand builder, including domain and keyword analysis tools to reverse engineer what’s working for your competition online. With Ubersuggest, you’re provided reports on which competitor’s pages are doing well for crucial search phrases and on popular social sites—as well as access to a free keyword suggestions tool showing what search phrases you may want to focus on moving forward.

REVIEW NINJA

If you’re going the route of DIY reputation management, managing your reviews should always one of your top priorities. Review management tools like Review Ninja may help provide a better handle on your brand’s review presence—the awareness needed to respond to online commentary quickly and more effectively, and before negative ratings can do too much damage to your digital reputation.

As an online review management services provider, Review Ninja claims to provide review monitoring and measurement across more than 100 review sites—as well as tools for generating more reviews and growing your review presence on the web.

TINEYE

TinEye is unique among DIY reputation management tools in that its focus is strictly on image location, matching and monitoring. TinEye’s reverse image search product allows you to paste or upload personal or business images into its search function to find exactly where they appear on the web, while the TinEye Alerts function alerts you as soon as any of your images pop up on a new site.

Unflattering or questionable images can do extensive damage to your brand image, and TinEye’s image monitoring and location capability may come in handy if or when a harmful image has made its way into the social sphere. It may else help you avoid the potential for image duplication, which is frowned upon by Google’s search function. 

THE BRAND GRADER

The Brand Grader purports to provide an introductory “snapshot” into your brand’s online reputation, one that covers mentions of your business on the web and provides a glimpse into how customers perceive and interact with your brand online. Upon entering your brand name and email into this online reputation management services tool, The Brand Grader claims to send you a report on the conversations surrounding your brand, which you could then use to build a stronger presence down the road.

Brand Grader is essentially a one-off monitoring tool with connections to Mention, though it may provide an inkling of insight into potential problems you may not have previously known of.
