Now that search engine queries comprise nearly 64% of the average company’s internet traffic, managing your organization’s online reputation is more critical than ever. An extensively researched white paper explains steps that every organization or professional should take to ensure their digital profile reflects their desired image.
The report, authored by strategic communications firm Lumentus, details the importance of controlling your online reputation by building and maintaining a "digital fortress." A properly managed digital presence combines elements of owned content such as a strong company website, active social media profiles, third-party media coverage, and, potentially, online advertising.
"How to Make the Right First Impression: A Guide to Digital Reputation Management," is a practical guide to current search trends and statistics, which explains the increasing importance of search results on business growth and development. The white paper by Lumentus provides infographics, case studies, useful tips, and tactics, as well as industry best practices.
"Online reputation management is both a science and an art," said Lumentus CEO Laurence Moskowitz. "We created this white paper to offer corporate communicators, public relations professionals, and company executives a straight-forward guide on how to manage the ‘long tail’ of digital reputation. A successful online profile defines, projects, and protects the image that every organization strives to portray."
