  • Drive traffic to your website
  • Create an interactive webpage for Google to index
  • Increase your search engine optimization
  • Position your brand as an industry leader a role player in your field
  • Develop better customer relationships
  • Creates familiarity and space to interact
Digital Marketing and Online Perception Management

In various ways, perception management combines truth projection, operations security, cover and deception, and psychological operations. “Perception” is defined as the “process by which individuals select, organize, and interpret the input from their senses to give meaning and order to the world around them”.

Blogging regularly about your business, industry, product or customer lifestyle will naturally register on Google’s algorithms and increase your search keywords. Your blog not only creates an inter active portal for visitors to return to it is your biggest tool managing your online profile – potential customers perception about your business.  Blogging has to be used as a marketing tactic to drive traffic back to your website and to profile your business perception. Make the blog on your website the foundation for all of your social media platforms.

The rules of online reputation management has also changed and understanding the impact that your online reputation has on your business and personal life is now essential to both online and offline success. How to change people’s perception with online reputation management needs consistent and clearly focused strategies.

Blogs provide a departure point, portal to change or install perceptions, a platform from where connections with customers and potential customers can be deepened. By connecting directly on your website, your clients are able to get to know your business or product from the comfort of your online home base. Consumers like to be informed, and appreciate that you are the one teaching them.
