2. Strategy– As far as the strategy is concerned; we worked on the already existing positive links and also created our own positive profiles. We mainly focus on various subjects like content marketing, link building and SMO.

Content Marketing – Reputation building is one of the greatest qualities of content marketing as the good quality content can really help in building a reputation for a certain project as we observed in this one. In the present business market, it is very difficult to build leads and generate content and in this scenario content marketing came to our rescue. According to us, it is helpful in building trust and leads with the customers. A positive brand reputation can be built with the help of this process. It happens so, because when the consumers read your content they start building an opinion for your brand and furthermore if the content is engaging and valuable and educational, then they will start to think the same things about your business. It has been observed that more the value you provide with your content, it will be easier for you to build the trust with the target audience. Furthermore, when the leads and the customers start to see that you are consistently publishing the content across various social media platforms, they may start seeing you as the leader of the industry.

Link Building – Link building is important for both the enterprise reputation

Management and reputation management for individuals along with the back linking that is the core handling for controlling your brands for the online reputation management. The search engines search for the back links for the vote of confidence for a particular website or the webpage.  The more relevant the quality back links, the more will be the value of the website which will ultimately result in the higher ranks of the website in the search engines. There are various types of rankings that have to be kept in mind before beginning with the process of link building.

SMO – Social media optimization refers to the use of number of outlets and communities that is used to generate the publicity to increase the awareness of the product, service brand or event. There are various types of social media that are involved such as RSS feeds, social news, bookmarking sites, as well as the social networking sites and the platforms such as face book, Twitter, video sharing websites, blogging and so on. SEO is similar to the search engine optimization, however the goal is to generate the web traffic and for the site it is to increase the awareness of the website. However, social media optimization refers to the optimizing of the website and its content to encourage and indulge more users to use and share links to the website across the social media platforms and networking sites. It also refers to the software tools that automate the process or to the website experts that undertake the process for the clients.

3. Achievement–We removed all the negative links from first page of search engine in 6 months. In this way, we tried our best to remove all the negative links from the page and build a better ORM for the client. However, there were many times when our strategies didn’t work and then we changed our strategies in order to accomplish our goals. With this we can conclude that there are many obstacles that we face on our paths but these difficulties are the ones that make us blooming with ideas and help us struggle for the best.

Wrap – up
In the summation, we would like to say that we did not use any secret tricks or hacks to build a positive ORM. We only invested in the building of the quality content and implementing various link acquisition strategies to match the stages during the process that was going on. As the links became positive, so did our minds.

To recap, here is the process that we followed for the positive ORM-
• We focused on starting slow for the easy wins.
• The next step was to focus on the securing links that were important for the process.
• Then we built a passive link acquisition channel to build momentum.
• We were always intentional about the content creation and its impact on the search.
• We also focused on the level up of the over time and targeted on higher level value opportunities.

At the end, we would like to suggest that building a positive ORM is a repeatable and a scalable process and it can only be effective if we do not lose hope. Of course, you will always need to tweak and adjust the process to fit to the unique needs and situations. However, we hope that you take up the positive lessons from the case study and implement them for better results.
