What Businesses Should Understand About Online Reputation Management

Online reputation management is the process of overseeing and controlling the reputation of a business. Most mentions posted online about different businesses do not reflect what the company would call positive publicity, and that explains the reason most companies have been looking for ways to manage their online reputation. Failure to embrace the right strategies for managing online reputation could lead to losses should customers get wooed by the mentions to shun the products offered by a company.

However according to onlinereputationreviews.com research, what few understand is the right procedures they should embrace to make the process easier and successful. There are few methods of managing and boosting the reputation of a business that don’t even require you to invest large amounts of money to execute.

Responsiveness to issues

Customers are impatient beings and would rather move to the next company than keep sending messages to inquire about a single issue. A single negative mention and the whole world will get to learn about the bad side of the business. One of the worst realities is that bad publicity is likely to stay fixed in people’s minds that the good things about a business, so working on keeping the reputation of your business clean is something that should never be overlooked.

The time you take to offer solutions to issues would determine how the public will view your business. It is advisable to ensure your support team is equipped with the latest technology that allows them to answer queries in time. The feedback offered should also be relevant to the needs of customers and should strive to remain relevant to what the company offers as well as its promise for the future, explains a FOX News article.

Additionally, using measures that would suppress your competitors is not the wisest thing you can think about when managing online mentions. Instead, you should try to concentrate on winning customers over and keeping them engaged through quality submissions. Offering good services and responding to complaints positively will only work to raise your reputation and more potential customers will convert once they get to learn about the progress.

Education Reform Is A Legacy Dick DeVos Can Be Proud Of

Dick DeVos has been one of the world’s premier education reform activists in my opinion since he began looking to the future of education for children in his home state of Michigan over three decades ago. In an interview I read with Dick’s wife Betsy the education reform specialist explained the interest the couple share in education reform came about when they were touring schools during the childhood of their own children; the article from Philanthropy Roundtable explained to me the concern the couple share for education reform is based in their own experiences talking with parents who were struggling to send their own children to Potter’s Christian School just outside the DeVos family hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan. I understand the reasons behind the couple’s interest in education reform a little more after reading the interview with Betsy DeVos, and appreciate the fact the couple based their early reform efforts in Michigan before expanding further across the U.S. Although I would not look at Dick and Betsy DeVos and view them as radicals in their political beliefs the bipartisan assistance they have created for education reform has seen them labeled as such after their more than 30 year attempts to improve education in the U.S.


Education plays a key role in the work of Dick DeVos, but as in his business choices the Michigan based investor is not willing to limit himself to a single area of philanthropic giving. I myself have a deep love of the arts and was pleased to read on the Wikipedia page of Dick DeVos that he has worked closely with the Kennedy Center for the Arts for a number of years to help fund some of the most important programs in the U.S. DeVos has funded an arts management center at the Kennedy Center and provided funding for Kennedy Center sponsored programs in his own hometown of Grand Rapids. I have also been impressed with the way Dick DeVos has put the needs of international students at the top of his own list of priorities with a scholarship program targeted at students from developing nations wishing to study at the Thunderbird School of Business Management.

Hipster-Vibe University Students Cash In on Farm-to-Table Trend

Necessity truly is the mother of all invention – and herein lies the story of three Georgetown University undergraduates who craved a healthier, tastier and youth-oriented, off-campus dining choice. According to a BloombergPursuits.com article, what began as one salad bar start-up in 2007, SweetGreen, has grown to 31 restaurants nationwide. From an ingrained work ethic based on discipline, along with a notion that healthy living – not just nutritious food, had become a deep-rooted value in their demographic, only inflamed the desire and ambition of these men to steer far away from a traditional institutional career and look towards a life-enhancing, vibe-generating, healthy-eating restaurant venture.


Nathaniel Ru, Nicolas Jammet, and Jonathan Neman have not only found the sweet spot of salad bistro-style restaurants but has also successfully conveyed their vision through three rounds of venture capital fundraising. The Washington-based start-up garnered $95 million by pitching a set of values that embraces the food they serve, how they run the business in the back office, treating employees as ‘team members’, a community-oriented mission, and most of all, making healthy food hip, desirable – even sexy. The right combination of lettuce, dressing, healthy accompaniments and a hipster ambience has all contributed to the success of the high-end salad chain.


CEO and Co-Founder, Nathaniel Ru acknowledges the three men’s tech background has proved valuable as the company’s website and mobile app account for 30% of all transactions. Sweetgreen’s placed an initial strategic emphasis on what Millenials know and do best, that is online interactions. With Ru’s input, employee management strategy has reversed the Google-styled office production strategies and replaced it with decentralized headquarters and ensuring that all office employees break five times per year to take a role in working directly in a restaurant. One key piece of advice Nathaniel offers for entrepreneurs is to hire capable staff to delegate workload as soon as it becomes possible. Avoiding burnout and having time to read books can be just as valuable to building a company as putting in 16-hour shifts.


Creating a high-end salad chain restaurant takes skill in cultivating the right people. Nathaniel Ru continues to believe that merging good food with technology is the right way to add to sustainable living while serving delicious and nutritious food options. His motto ‘Everything you do, should last longer than you’, is what keeps him focused on that initial vision of living better – for himself and others.



Getting Concerts In With Securus Video Calls

Securus video calls are really great for people who are trying to help inmates not miss too much. Missing a lot of what happens on the outside can happen a lot, but now people are being told that they can catch the concerts and events that they would miss. There are many people who are using Securus like I am to make sure that kids can have their parents see their concerts and other events. They do all that hard work, and they want to make sure that everyone sees it.


Securus has created a really nice app that works on the phone and tablet, and I have taken kids to concerts with the tablet going to show the inmates the concerts. The inmates sit down to watch these concerts, and they are given a chance to see what is happening when they are on the inside. These inmates have rights as parents, and I think that we are helping them better than ever before because now kids can be seen while they are doing the concerts and other production work that people usually miss out on while they are in prison.


Someone who is in prison needs to have someone on the outside who will place the calls with Securus, and they need to remember that it is very easy to use the app. I use the app almost every day to help kids, and I have brought it to concerts with no problem. I have had kids playing their instruments or singing into the app in their homes, and I think that it is important that parents get to see these things. It is a very good incentive for them to be able to change their lives while they are in jail, and they will know what is waiting for them when they are released.

Adam Goldenberg’s Unique Venture

Adam Goldenberg wants to bring a unique model to the fashion world as the cofounder of JustFab. This company was founded in 2010 along with his business partner Don Ressler. The company is an online fashion retailer and the premise behind it personalizes the items that its sales based on the fashion tastes and preferences of those who subscribe to the service. This is an attempt to bring a personal touch rather than simply act as a fashion boutique. This is part of what makes this business model different. Since 2010 the company of Goldenberg has also expanded beyond fashion for adults by also including lines of clothing for children. Through the company, there have also been celebrities who have released their own fashion brands as well.

The main thing with the company is that it wants to emphasize a personal and custom touch on Crunchbase. the membership model is one of a unique things about the company and it is one of the things that Adam Goldenberg was looking to emphasize the most as it helps to create a more personal experience with each different customer rather than just relying on a very typical and impersonal experience that is usually in the case with more traditional fashion outlets.

Because of this approach the need for customer service and to be able to provide useful customer service is one of the most important things for JustFab because by doing so they will be able to have individuals who will be happy and excited with their selections and feel a closer connection to the company as a whole since they are using a membership model which is not something that is typically seen in the world of fashion according to Adam Goldenberg. Since JustFab is a digital retailer they really look into timing the overall customer experience and to be able to make their customers happy, while this is a thrust of just about any other business because of the type of business model that the company has chosen to pursue it becomes critical that excellent customer service and satisfaction are key essentials in improving the overall quality of the company according to Adam Goldenberg.

Bad Investment Advice is All Over the Media with Laidlaw and Company

Hitting it big in the stock market has never been easy. It is even more difficult today when investors and potential investors are inundated by information from a wide range of media outlets. A good amount of this information is unreliable or plain wrong. Some of this comes from a media outlet’s need to make money to continue its existence. Many stories will feature things like, “The Top Three Hot Stock Picks.” In reality, some of those hot picks may not pan out, but catchy stories like that will bring in viewers or readers. There is evidence that the hit rate for these stocks is sometimes less than if an investor picks a stock at random. It is also risky to predict the future, as a company doing well today might wind up in a negative light in tomorrow’s news.

Bad Investment Advice Knows No Boundaries

Flavio Maluf Discusses Implications of Brexit on Brazilian Economy

Flavio Maluf, the well respected president and Chief Executive Officer of Eucatex, recently participated in an interview with a business magazine to discuss the implications of the British exit from the European Union, otherwise known as Brexit. The business owner gave a detailed analysis about the effect of Brexit on the Brazilian economy. Specifically, Flavio Maluf discussed the implications of Brexit on his on company and the steps that he and his colleagues would be taking to combat any negative effects of Brexit on their company. During the interview, Flavio Maluf discussed his own personal history and his entrance into the business field.

Flavio Maluf began his career in business after he completed his formal education at a prominent University in Brazil. The young college graduate knew that he was interested in business management and operations before he completed his studies, but Maluf still worked in a series of non-management related positions before gaining a position at Eucatex in the late 1980s. After obtaining an entry level position at Eucatex, Maluf faithfully served the small company for many years before finally becoming the president and CEO of the company. After becoming the President of Eucatex, Maluf began a systematic process to grow the company at a swift pace. After more than a decade of operating as the president of the company, Maluf succeeded in growing the company at a substantial rate.

During his interview with the business magazine, Maluf stated that he believed that the implications of Brexit would negatively impact the Brazilian economy. Maluf, unfortunately, is not alone is his projections about the British exit from the European Union. Most financial strategists have predicted negative implications after the exit and had a point prove earlier in the year when the Brexit decision was announced and the stocks for the European Union dropped significantly. Flavio Maluf stated that this economic crisis would undoubtedly effect the Brazilian economy, but reassured stock holders by stating that his team had a plan in effect to negate the consequences of Brexit on Eucatex. Maluf stated that he was confident in his ability to sustain profitable margins for the company.

George Soros Has Economic Competition from Philip Diehl

Although George Soros is known in the investment community as the leading progressive investor in the United States, he now has some conservative competition from U.S. Money Reserve.

According to Crunchbase and Glassdoor, The Industry Council for Tangible Assets (ICTA) has named U.S. Money Reserve president Philip N. Diehl as the president of their organization. U.S. Money Reserve helps sell gold and silver assets to the common man, as a way to protect assets against the careless financial behavior of the current U.S. government.

Diehl highly values creating a favorable atmosphere for gold and silver companies to compete and sell their wares. Diehl worked to fight against a Minnesota law that made it hard for businessmen to sell their products to customers. Diehl is also a former director for the United State Mint, so he has vast experience about the government perspective for the regulation of precious metals.

George Soros profits from making risky hedge fund bets. He sees that companies are soon going to decline, and then bets against them. Diehl, by contrast, thinks that it is more important to hold assets that are stable and long term. Gold and silver are prime examples.

Although the paper value of the Soros fortune may be far more than the typical gold and silver investor, if the economy of the United States ever crashes, gold and silver will still be just as valuable then as it is now. Not true with corporate and government bonds and stocks, which are Soros’ financial life blood. As director of ICTA, Diehl is going to try to help the reputation of precious metals gain a makeover in the U.S.

A lot of modern economists scoff at the idea of using gold and silver, but they were valued as monetary units until very recent history. The market economists and their political stooges lose sleep whenever the economy takes a nosedive. Not so with the wise precious metals investor.

He chuckles as he views his glittery stash in the safe. No matter what the price level of the paper market, he has something that has been valued for millennia as a store of value.
