Why E Commerce Companies Need ORM

Like it or not, people are talking about you online. They’re talking about your brand, your products, the industry and your competitors. Do you know what they are saying? If not, why not? Can you afford not to listen?
Managing your online reputation isn’t shameless promotion; it’s a means of defense and a best practice as well. If you don’t protect yourself, someone can easily post a comment, make a video, create a blog post, file a complaint, promote your competition, develop a hate site and more. Or even worse, an angry employee will leave the company with revenge on their mind.
People who care about their online reputation are the ones who are seeking employment, selling a product, looking for an investor or simply trying to score a date. Either way someone is going to turn to a search engine to learn more about you.
The effects of negative online reputation may be as subtle as a user clicking on a competitor’s search result instead of yours or as damaging as an industry-wide boycott of your products and/or services. Financial implications of having a company’s credibility called into question, there are potential legal ramifications that could dominate your time and cripple your financial sustainability, as well. This will often cement trusted news and legal results in the top search rankings so that even if a case is dismissed or resolved, you will be living with the consequences for years to come. Things like, determining who is responsible for the negative reputation, if you need to re-position or remove certain employees or dealing with potential losses in workforce, add further monetary, morale and growth consequences.
