A good reputation takes hard work to build, but it can be significantly damaged in an instant by a disgruntled employee, an angry customer, or mistakes made in your youth. In the age of the internet, transgressions, whether genuine or fabricated, have the ability to spread to the masses instantaneously. A reputation that took years, even decades to build, can be swept away in a single moment or by a singular event.
Like a digital tattoo, a PR crisis can be on your record forever. For all companies and individuals, reputation management is a critical part of maintaining your brand, company, or agency. Your online reputation shapes how you and your business are perceived by employers, potential customers, and investors. Absolute Marketing Solutions provides a full suite of reputation management services designed to restore your reputation online, maintain it, and capture opportunities to bolster your reputation.
To restore our clients’ online reputation, we utilize best practices in the areas of Search Engine Optimization, strategic Content Creation, and social media management to push down negative articles or comments in search rankings. While some of these articles and mentions may not go away completely, it’s crucial to move them further down the page and to reclaim your story through positive coverage and features.

We start by developing a communications strategy specifically tailored for your company or organization’s situation. Whether it’s a rebranding strategy, a crisis recovery plan, or a preventative PR crisis solution, we’re here to protect and nurture your company’s name.
Depending on the nature of the public relations issue, we begin to craft and produce compelling content pieces that promote your company or organization.
Distribution and Outreach
Whether we publish a formal statement on your website, a press release, a blog, or send a media pitch, we are constantly fostering relationships with major media and influencers in your industry landscape.
Monitor and Manage
Reacting to news stories, producing positive content, and engaging with your audience isn’t always enough to protect your brand. We monitor and keep up with the latest in your organization to be proactive and have plans in place in the case a future incident arises.
Our Reputation Management Services
Did you know that if a search result moves from first to the fourth position in Google, the number of clicks the search result receives goes down almost 75 percent? That’s why having a strategy crisis recovery plan can be essential in repairing your company or brand’s reputation. Here are Absolute's core services that we utilize to help restore and rebuild your company or organization's reputation.
Search Engine Optimization
Part of restoring, managing, and bolstering your reputation involves understanding what key terms are most relevant to you or your company. The Tampa reputation management and crisis recovery team at Absolute Marketing Solutions will assess your current situation and build a strategy based on your goals.
Our public relations team is comprised of former journalists and expert content marketers who will create press releases promoting your business and initiatives. We also have established relationships with local, trade and national media through professional connections in the Tampa Bay area. We will utilize these connections to garner positive media attention for your brand or company in a way that achieves your business objectives.
Online Reputation Monitoring (ORM)
There’s always a conversation about your business taking place online. We will monitor that conversation and alert you to any negative attention that you may be receiving. We also create and execute strategies for addressing issues, and have tools that monitor your name 24/7, ensuring that no media mentions are lost.
To push negative articles and mentions down, you need positive content to move up in search results. Our content management team will work with you to produce content that is not only positive but aligned with your personal or professional goals. This content includes the creation of blog articles and social media. We also work to garner positive online reviews. Also, we adhere to the Associated Press style guidelines when creating and distributing press releases, pitches, and media alerts.
