No Monthly Payments for Reputation Management? Flat Fee Reputation Management Services are here!

One of the first questions that I’m asked when talking with a client is “How much is this going to cost?” That’s a loaded question!

Monthly Fees

Every reputation management company that I know of charges in the same way, “setup/startup” fee and then monthly payments. Many companies will set a loose timeline of 6-12 months but others will stop billing when the work is complete.

Warning: This is very dangerous for a customer. When does the billing end? What happens if the negative is still on the first page? If they work isn’t finished in the timeframe, will you be billed indefinitely? Why would the company want the work done quickly if they’re getting paid monthly?

Flat Fee

When my company works with a reputation management client, we only charge a flat fee. When you get off the phone, you know exactly how much it will cost. There are NO MONTHLY FEES or any other tricks to get money out of you. You will pay the stated price and not a penny more.

It gets better! You will only pay half of the fee up front and the other half is due upon completion. This ensures that both the client and our company are on the same pagewe both want the work done as quickly as possible, and we put our money where our mouth is, you don’t pay until the work is complete!

Do any other reputation management companies have a financial incentive to get the work done as quickly as possible?

Contact us today for more information and to get a quote and straight advice, no tricks, gimmicks or hidden fees.

Reader Question: What is PR?

Short question from a reader:

What is PR and what does it affect?

Thanks for the question.  Page Rank (PR) is a metric that Google created.  PR is a valuation of all of the links coming into a site.  Google looks at and analysis the links pointing to a web page then gives that page a PR value from 0-10.  Without any in bound links (IBL’s), most sites will remain under 1. Once your site starts gaining traction, you will likely get to 2 or 3.  Without purposeful link building you won’t likely ever get higher than PR 2-3.

There are many services that offer to build links to increase PR, but does that matter? Personally and for my clients, I want to rank better in the search engine results pages (SERPs).  If you have a PR9 but don’t rank for any good keywords, does that PR matter?

Career in Reputation Management

I recently received a question from a long time commenter.

I have noticed that you’ve been getting more involved in reputation management. How would I start a career in reputation management?

That’s a good question and one that I definitely feel qualified to answer since I recently (in the last couple of years) have been transitioning to a full time reputation management business.

There are two ways to get into reputation management as a career.

1. Create your own business.
Creating your own business has both pros and cons. The benefits are that you control everything and get all of the revenue. The cons are you are also responsible for finding all of your clients, managing payroll, advertising, accounting, etc.

2. Work for someone else.
There are many reputation management companies looking to hire sales people with experience. If you can get some experience and have sales experience there are a lot of companies that would be interested in hiring you. Most reputation management companies pay a base wage per hour and a percentage of the sales that you bring in. The last company who offered me a position was paying $11 per hour plus 1% of all gross sales. That gives you an idea of what type of rates you can expect working for someone else.

Having experience in other types of sales, online reputation management is one of the most fun!

Good luck getting started! Reputation management is a fun and growing field!

Do It Yourself (DIY) Reputation Management?

Yesterday I received a phone call from a man who had been arrested and acquitted on charges against him.  He explained his situation and how he was in the wrong place and looked similar to someone the police were looking for. Regardless of his innocence in the matter, two local newspapers picked up the story and published his name, mugshot and details of the heinous crime speculating that he could be the suspect.

In an effort to clean up his name defamed reputation he contacted the newspapers and they refused to retract the story, remove his name and mugshot or help him in any way.  He contacted me for reputation management.

He had already started working on his own reputation and after 3 days he had an almost complete article on  He explained how he built the site but it wasn’t showing up for his name.

It is truly a good start to DIY reputation management, but it’s far from complete.  When I take on a new client I will typically create 20+ new sites all with unique content.  For one inexperienced person to attempt that would take them a week or two.  Then comes the real work of building links to each of those properties.  Without proper link building your reputation management campaign will never get off the ground.

DIY is great for some situations, but if your name or business name is showing up on real sites like a newspaper, blog, Yelp, RipOffReport or Pissed Consumer, you’ll need a real reputation management consultant to help clean it up.
