What is reputation management?  

Reputation Management is the monitoring the reputation of a brand or an individual across the internet and devising strategies to counter negative content that is deterrent to the individual or the brand. 

In general, reputation management will assess what your organization is known for and what is the prevailing sentiment. Optimal reputation management is aimed at managing and maintaining your brand and public relations. It feeds all aspects of your reputation, allowing you to positively influence the existing image of your organization over your competitors. 

Good reputation management means being aware of the current wishes and sentiments of your target audience. If you are not sufficiently informed about current market developments, this can be detrimental to your communication policy and your market position.

To manage your reputation successfully, you can proactively influence the image of your organization. You will also have to monitor the risk of failure for your business. Common methods of risk monitoring include the following:
