Well If you are looking to expand your business online the first thing one would do is research. Now If you have already done this you have quickly learned that everyone knows best and everyone has the perfect solution and half of those people end up being scams. When you are done, you have more questions than you started with and an empty pocket because you outsourced everything to different people.
First off let me start by saying getting a specialist in SEO on your side is one of the most important things you can do as a business owner. However do realize that it is not the only thing you need. There is something that a lot of business owners overlook when it comes to getting yourself noticed online. That is your reputation online.
According to ABC and USA today 80% of all new business is now being generated through reviews.
Step back for a second and let that soak in. That means if you are receiving a lot of negative feed back online you are only reaching 20% of you potential online customer base. In addition google released an algorithm late last year that now punishes businesses for having negative reviews pushing them farther down in rankings.
Think of it like this SEO is building roads to your business and reputation management makes you look good when people find you.
