Why You Need Reputation Marketing

Why Online Reputation Was Not Important Before

For years there has been 3 areas of online marketing:

  • Search Engine Marketing
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Reputation Management

Search Engine Marketing (SEM) was dominated by Google, Yahoo and Bing. In the last few years, Social Media Marketing has taken off in a big way with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc and is completely different to that of SEO.

Then you have Reputation Marketing, with companies like Yelp, Amazon and Ebay, whose main focus is not SEO or Social Media, but people who are looking for products and services based on reputation.
