    These are effective tips, securing your online reputation is a smart choice of any big and small businesses. Savvy consumers use online resources to research product or services, that’s why managing your online reputation is vitally important since everyone in front of you is a potential critic. Having a good impression to people will draw more customers and will keep your business in a strong phase.

    I have one more thing to add on your list, ‘solicit reviews from happy customers’, to counter the negative feedbacks from online review sites such as takethisjoborshoveit.com or in YELP. But it’s also important to respond quickly to negative reviews in a professional and helpful way. Publicly acknowledge the person’s concern and help them resolve the issue. All in all great list!
