Your reputation is well-deserved. We protect it from harm's way.

The reputation of a CEO affects corporate reputation, customer loyalty, investor trust, and other factors.

The internet is a fantastic place that allows for free speech and open information. However, free speech is not always equitable, and a single disgruntled customer can frequently rally a metaphorical mob with pitchforks to try to burn down your corporate reputation.

In such cases, corporate online reputation management is the best line of defence. It not only removes negative corporate reviews, online comments, opinions, and remarks that harm your brand's online image, but it also nurtures positive comments and remarks, ensuring that your corporate image is spotless when people search for your brand or business online.

Why is your online reputation important? Just as most people Google the name of a company before doing business with it, we do the same for the people with whom we do business. And what they see on the first page of search results can heavily influence how they choose to interact with you (if at all).

Today's business founders and executives must use social media to build their reputations. Online reputation management necessitates a long-term and deliberate strategy, similar to how a company's brand is built. The reputation of a C-suite executive has always been critical to a company's success. Nonetheless, many CEOs in the past focused the majority of their efforts on the organization's internal operations rather than its external reputation.

Why Do CEOs Need to Manage Their Reputations?

Under constant scrutiny, reputational risk can pose a strategic threat to a business, according to ReputationManagement.com, a provider of reputation management services for organisations, businesses, and individuals.

"Reputational risk refers to the possibility that negative publicity, public perception, or uncontrollable events will have an adverse impact on a company's reputation, thereby affecting its value," the firm writes on its website in "Reputation Management for CEOs and Executives."

"Reputational risk is analogous to an earthquake. It strikes without warning, altering your corporate landscape, consuming revenue, instilling fear, and causing chaos. Unfortunately, it is frequently minimised or confused with other types of corporate risk "The company continues.

According to the firm, the first step in managing reputational risk is for CEOs to control their own narrative. Some fundamental principles for achieving that goal are as follows:

  • Having a clear vision for your company
  • Being inspiring and motivating
  • demonstrating integrity and ethics
  • Internal communication training
  • Concern for employee well-being and company culture
  • Having a global business perspective
  • Having good public relations and external communications
  • Making a decision
  • Keeping an eye on the customer

Today, the majority of a CEO's "narrative" takes place on social media, and savvy executives understand that mastering online reputation management is critical.

Being the CEO of a large corporation used to be much easier. CEOs were primarily concerned with running their businesses quietly and keeping investors informed and satisfied long before Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and the 24-hour news cycle. Today's CEOs are jacks and jills of all trades. They are not only in charge of the company from the top, but they are also expected to be more open and accessible (as well as accountable) to employees, stakeholders, and customers. CEOs must also handle crises with tact and extreme sensitivity. They must also have adaptable thought leadership skills and ingenuity.

For better or worse, the CEO is now the company's public face. This means that when people think of Facebook, they think of Mark Zuckerberg. And the online discussion about him has an impact on the public's perception of his company.

Let's take a closer look at the six things every C-suite executive should know about managing their online reputation.

Your Online Reputation Is Important

As a company executive, it is ESSENTIAL that you address and manage your personal online reputation. This has the potential to have a significant impact on your company's bottom line. Consider conducting a quick search on their technology executives to help you make your final decision. If you're like most of us, you'd leave those searches feeling a little more confident about them.

You Must Perform An Online Asset.

How do you know what information is available about you if you aren't looking? A simple Google or Bing search is an excellent place to begin. Perform similar searches on specific social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and others. If you work in the B2C industry, look for mentions of your name on review sites like Yelp, Angie's List, and others.

Examine Your Competition

Take a look at your competition while you're assessing your own online reputation. What CEOs in your industry are doing well, receiving a lot of positive coverage and press mentions? Determine what your competitors are doing well so that you can borrow, emulate, and/or improve. These actions will help to inform your own online strategy.

Remember: Your personal life isn't private when you're online.

Because of the COVID crisis, our living rooms have been transformed into offices. Your personal Facebook account's privacy settings may be set to "friends only," but the blurry-eyed photo of you at your buddy's bachelor party could be open to the public. The same is true for your wedding announcement, your name in the church bulletin, and your political or charitable contributions.

What You Can Control Must Be Controlled

There are several things you can control that will improve your overall online reputation. The goal here is to distinguish yourself and make your various profiles as appealing to search engines as possible. If this happens to you, I recommend adding unique, up-to-date content to all of the "owned" profiles you control.

Maintain Constant Online Presence

As a business executive, you must constantly monitor your online presence. There are tools available to assist you in keeping your online reputation up to date. You should set up Google Alerts under your own name. This monitoring tool searches social media, news, blogs, videos, forums, podcasts, and reviews, among other things. It includes analysis so you can tell whether someone is speaking positively or negatively about you.

Each scenario presents its own set of challenges, but in general, it takes about twelve months to establish a positive reputation on Google's first page, with noticeable results after a few months.

Because videos rank faster than text and images, posting regular, ongoing videos to your YouTube Channel and websites is critical to the success of your reputation management efforts. The quality of your media outputs is also important in providing your audience with a positive experience.
The only way to have information removed from Google is if it contains sensitive information that could jeopardise your physical or financial well-being. Otherwise, suppressing negative results through ORM is the best way to correct your brand narrative.
