Undeniably social media is an effective tool for internet or digital marketing. A digital marketing company would therefore obviously be expected to make optimum utilization of social media to manage the online reputation of their business and brand alike. As the benefits of a quality business blog is widely recognized in terms of greater brand visibility through which online reputation in turn is effectively managed, there probably isn’t a single online marketing company that has not reaped the benefits by having a quality blog.
It’s a well-known fact that a brand’s image could be relegated to disrepute due to possible adverse feedback posted on the internet. Conversely, the image of a brand could be promoted as well through positive feedback which is what any digital marketing company in India and elsewhere would obviously want. Therefore the necessity of a well-managed quality business blog could hardly be emphasized enough with regard to online reputation leading to growth of a business. An expert guest blogger could maintain and manage the blog or the blog could be managed internally as well. Regardless of whether an expert guest blogger manages the blog or it’s managed internally, the objective, focus and indeed the purpose of maintaining the blog is to build online reputation which would ultimately contribute in the growth of a virtual business. This is a fact that should not be lost sight of.
There’s reason to believe that a blog is the most effective tool to use to build an excellent online reputation and thereby ensure that business grows for online marketing companies. The thought process and personality of an individual is reflected through a blog which essentially enables readers to form an opinion about a business in general and a brand in particular. Readers get to know through a blog, among other things about the aspirations of a business and or brand, what the business and or brand aims at achieving and what it has to offer. Through a blog consumers get to voice their opinions about a brand, or business in general which is much appreciated.
There is a distinct advantage in having a separate blog site as opposed to integrating blog pages on the official website. A separate blog site would have separate ranking on SERPs. If the website of any digital marketing company for example and blog equally rank well, the possibility of being considered an expert in a particular niche is high. If either one of these sites have poor SERP ranking, the option exists to improve both rankings by using the other site. Even if there is a separate blog site it should be linked to the official website so as to ensure that the business grows.
While posting a new blog, at least one of the web pages should have reference. In this regard a blog post from the past with relevant content, or social networking pages or an article on an official website of an online marketing company perhaps or even a different blog altogether where a business and or brand has had positive reviews for example, would in all likelihood entice blog readers to look into the extent of online presence of a brand or business.
This strategy may convince and even tempt readers to visit the official website of digital marketing companies of all places perhaps and become a patron of not just the blog, but the products and services that the brand represents as well. With an ever increasing popularity of a brand and or business, online reputation management becomes easier as there would be a veritable fan following of a brand that would defend and protect a brand from onslaughts.
Depending on how powerful an official blog is, it would determine the effectiveness of an online reputation management. Through an engaging blog, SERP rankings would improve as would the appreciation and loyalty of a target market which translates to online reputation leading to earnings ultimately.
