    Darren,
    I think that’s a SHIT HOT idea! You’re right on the money, I’m always walking around with the idea that someone could be badmouthing me on that there interweb thing!
    You’re also right about the time factor, I think I’ve actually had the time to sit down and search it. As it was, that was 3 AM one night I couldn’t sleep from worrying about all this crap!
    I’m not too sure if I can help you with pricing though since I’m just a start up and there’s not lots of cash floating around but I would definitely pay for that service!
    I hope this helps you as much as you help me with all your sage advice.
    Keith

      Thanks Keith for the response!

      I appreciate you checking in. So let me ask you the question this way; if I can get you what I talk about in the article, would you pay $10 bucks a month, then a flat fee to get negative reviews worked on? Or would you pay one flat fee of say $29 a month to monitor and protect at the same time? I ask because the protection would be an add-on service that would either need to be paid for when needed (negative reviews) or to have a it included in the service?

      Thanks again, and happy the site helps you!

        Hi Darren,
        Sorry for the delay in answering your question, hadn’t realized I could answer you.
        To answer your question though, I would pay the ten bucks a month for monitoring but would prefer, I think to decide on a case by case basis if I would like to handle it myself or rely on an expert to handle it for a pre-determined fee. Hope this helps.
        Keith

    Dear Mr. Slaughter,

    My thoughts are the same as Mr. McGorlick’s. And to follow up on your question to him, I believe I’d prefer to pay a lower amount, get notified, and handle it myself. So, basically only pay for notifications (positive and negative)… maybe a report twice a week. But with that said, I’d be willing to pay more than $10 a month for it. I think $25 per month for two very basic reports per week telling me when and where my company, myself and other key people in our organization are mentioned.

    Thanks.

    Sincerely,

    Chris

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks for reading and commenting. I appreciate your feedback! To add a one better to your reporting, I am thinking doing almost real-time reporting for either good or bad will be the best way, so whatever I do, that will be part of it. So, I can count you in?

      Thanks again!

    Reputation management is important, difficult to monitor for the contractor and of great importance to keeping good business headed one’s way. It is easy for a dissatisfied customer, vendor or for that matter, competitor, to write negative comments for purposes that primarily benefit them. Therefore, I feel it it is important to monitor one’s internet presence and address negative issues. A monitoring fee of $10 monthly and a fee to address issues when elected makes sense to me.

    I would be willing to pay $10 a month. maybe your monthly fee could be tired so that lager contractors that have a larger presents on the web and will require more monitoring (and the service will be more valuable) can pay more. And the small startup guys can benefit from the service and you can have them as clients as they grow to be the bigger contractors.
    I like the idea of low monthly and charge per issues resolved. I will probably address the issues myself, unless you can have a program that can completely remove the bad review!
