Online reputation management FAQs

How does online reputation management work?

ORM starts with the evaluation of risks and challenges. A comprehensive evaluation helps in creating a reputation management plan to deliver a positive online image for clients. 

After evaluation of negative results, we create an action plan to push them to the lower pages of Google so that no one can find them. This is accomplished through the concepts of reverse SEO and brand building.  

How much does online reputation management cost?

On average, reputation management companies in developed countries like the USA and Canada charge $2000 to $4000 per month to push down multiple negative links or resources from the first page of Google. 

On the other hand, online reputation management packages at Upreports start at $700. The difference in cost is major because of the difference in currency value.
