Companies mentioned in this article: Reputation Maxx

ATLANTA, July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The experts at Atlanta reputation management firm Reputation Maxx are well aware that any business or individual's online reputation can be compromised by outside sources that post unfavorable content, regardless of the validity of said material. While it is difficult and nearly impossible to prevent people from posting negative material that can damage a reputation in the future, individuals and businesses can control what material they release to shape the way that they look online in the present. It is important to note, however, that if this content is not thought out properly, it is necessary to make sure that the positive content is promotional, appropriate and easily shared.

Any material deemed inappropriate or offensive by others can ultimately damage the reputation of an individual or company that put that content on the web, shares the Atlanta reputation management firm of Reputation Maxx. This is why clients should be extremely careful about what they put online coming from their name or company. Topics such as politics and current events can offend certain people, especially when a stance is clearly stated. While there is freedom of speech, everybody must recognize that not all readers will agree with certain opinions. Expressing the "wrong" opinion can ultimately paint a negative picture of that individual or business.

Online reputation management expert and Reputation Maxx CEO Walter Halicki states, "The way people look online is incredibly important. In today's world, everybody has access to the Internet and can find information about anybody. Any dirt that people find can damage businesses and people who rely on a good reputation to be successful."

Online branding is only as effective as the clients who recognize the power of their words and what they decide to release publicly. Any opinion that might not directly represent a business or even an individual should be kept private. Free expression might not be worth the consequences of a damaged reputation. In other words, everybody must be cautious about what is said, and the type of information being released online. Regular caution can help protect clients who want to maintain their reputations on the web.

The Atlanta reputation management firm of Reputation Maxx is available for helping clients who want to not only repair their damaged online landscape, but also help secure a brand's web presence through content management and digital marketing campaigns.
