Software Options For Online Reputation Management

There are literally millions of webpages out there. While the vast majority aren’t as popular as a YouTube or a Google, there are plenty of third-party review sites like Online Reputation Reviews that wield authority and may go unchecked by a given public personality or business. Managing online reputation can be a very time-consuming task; especially as it doesn’t reveal itself until a business or career has become large enough to require regular demographic perception management. Public Relations encompasses online reputation management in many respects, but the two aren’t quite synonymous–primarily because Public Relations transcends the digital. But there is good news. As technology becomes more integral to modern business operations, new solutions for online reputation management are being developed all the time. One of the most exciting solutions was announced on August 23rd at a convention of independent durable goods retailers in Nashville, Tennessee.
The reason this new software solution is exciting has little to do with the specific demographic for which the platform was designed, and a lot to do with the way in which RWS (Retailer Web Services) went about designing it. 1,400+ consumers were surveyed to provide a quantifiable, statistically predictable scientific basis from which the software could be developed. From this data six tenants of operation–called “best practices”–were observed. These best practices include monitoring the net for reviews, providing alerts for retailers when reviews arrive, templates for positive and negative automated responses, automatic solicitations to reel-in actionable feedback, showcasing of good reviews on company websites automatically, and sharing of good reviews across company profiles among various social media outlets. The consolidation of these techniques into a single location is a time-saver worthy of high consideration. But the techniques themselves are a process even a small business could use to manage their online presence.

Software solutions for online reputation management are going to be more necessary the larger a personality or corporation becomes. Where there is more opportunity for digital presence, there is more need that it be managed. Building up to that level can naturally facilitate the process, however; it just requires remaining cognizant of business trends and acting on that knowledge.

Thor Halvorssen Exposes Corruption

The topic of human rights is a relevant topic to the present day as there is still the existent of closed societies that have been discovered to not only be corrupt, but have also been discovered to be abusive to the individuals within the society. This brings to light the relevance of the human rights topic and the belief of many individuals around the world that universal human rights is a fight that is worth fighting for. In countries such as North Korea, Chechnya, or even Angola, these closed societies still subject their citizens to harsh conditions and punishments with no hope for democratic rights. It has become the job of many non-profit organizations to not only help those who have been subjected to these cruel societies and to preach the importance of universal rights. The right to religion, the right to leave and enter a country, and the right to freely speak are important universal rights to obtain.

One individual in particular is a fierce fighter when it comes to fighting for the rights of others. This individual is Thor Halvorssen who has not only been beaten and imprisoned many times while in closed societies, but has also been threatened for his life many times. Though the hardship that Mr. Halvorssen has had to endure, Mr. Halvorssen continues to remain loyal to his cause which is to fight for the rights that so many individuals around the world currently lack. As a third generation human rights activist, Thor Halvorssen has been exposed to this kind of life even at an early age.

As mentioned on Huffingtonpost.com, One of the most important missions that Thor Halvorssen is currently involved with is exposing certain celebrities who have not only entered closed societies and corrupt nations, but have also been paid a large sum of money to perform. A recent example is Thor Halvorssen speaking out against international rap star, Nicki Minaj. Nicki Minaj was tracked to be performing in Angola, a country that is notorious for corruption. After her performance, it was also discovered that Ms. Minaj was compensated with over $1 million for her performance.

Keith Mann: A Man for the Future

Successful business man, philanthropist, and caring benefactor are all titles Keith Mann carries. Keith Mann is founder and CEO of Dynamic Search Partners. With over 15 years of experience in the executive search industry, Keith Mann is an expert in all aspects of managing hedge funds. Mann uses his personal experience working with hedge funds in his Dynamic Search Partners business. Dynamic Search Partners seeks to connect different industries with qualified professionals to help them build platforms, and to complete investment marketing. Dynamic Search Partners has been so successful that it now works with businesses all around the world with accounts in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.

Mann and Dynamic Search Partners isn’t all business though. In 2015, they partnered with Uncommon Schools for a true investment in the future. Uncommon Schools is an organization that helps prepare low-income students for a future in college. It has created many charter schools on the East Coast and helped many young students start a successful future. Dynamic Search Partners helped Uncommon Schools raise $22,000 to help pay for testing in one of their new charter schools.

Mann does not create student success as only a business venture. Keith Mann and his wife Keely also created a scholarship, the Scholarship for Professional Achievement, to be awarded to one graduating senior each year from one of Uncommon Schools’ Brooklyn-based high-schools. Students must write a 1000 word essay about what they hope to achieve in college and beyond in order to receive the $5000 scholarship.

But Mann’s philanthropic effort doesn’t stop there. In the early months of 2015 Keith and Keely Mann bought lunch for the 54th precinct of the NYPD not once, but twice. The couple wanted to show support for the police force during a tumultuous time and they thought this lunch of thanks was the best way to show it. “Our officers deserve to be thanked for their service, not attacked in their attempts to keep people safe,” Mann said.

Keith Mann has greatly invested in the future both professionally and personally. There is no telling what this CEO will invest in next.

Beauty Blogger Praises WEN by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner (or) Fine-Haired Beauty Blogger Recommends WEN by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner

In an article entitled “What Cleansing Conditioner Does to Fine Hair,” (hyperlink to the article here) originally posted on Bustle.com, a hair stylist and fashion and beauty blogger reviews WEN hair by Chaz Dean’s Fig Cleansing Conditioner, providing day-by-day recaps of her trial week with the conditioner, complete with photos and final thoughts.
WEN hair by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner is an innovative 5-in-1 hair care product designed to replace your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler, and leave-in conditioner to thoroughly cleanse hair without damaging it or stripping away its natural oils. It is sold on high end cosmetics stores like sephora and online via Amazon.

With natural ingredients, like herbs and botanical, to strengthen and moisturize hair, the Cleansing Conditioner comes in six different formulas, each tailored to combat specific hair problems.

As a self-proclaimed beauty product enthusiast, the author of the Bustle.com article chose the Fig variety of the Cleansing Conditioner in hopes of giving her fine, flat hair some moisture, bounce, and shine. And despite her initial skepticism, her week-long trial revealed exceptional results.

At the beginning of the week, she noticed that after using the cleansing conditioner and styling her hair, it was shinier and bouncier. Throughout her trial, her hair felt and looked healthier, and by the end of the week, her hair was distinctly softer—and she even received a compliment about her shiny locks on day six!

In her final thoughts, the author confirms that “the Wen hair Cleansing Conditioner is a great product for those with fine hair” and says that she’ll use it in the future when she’s seeking some added shine.

Richard Blair on whether it is wise to rent out part of your Home

You may be convinced that renting out part of your home via Airbnb or other rental firms may be a simple method of making money. On the contrary, you may face losses that you had not planned for as a result of renting your property to short-term tenants. http://hackronym.com/category/financial-advice/

Subsequently, you are advised to look into a couple of issues that may significantly affect you financially before renting out your house. Three important issues that you should examine include:

1. Assessment of possible risks
When you agree to accommodate guests, you take responsibility for any injuries that they may sustain. Additionally, yow will be responsible for any damage by your guests to your property or your neighbor’s property. Another risk is that tenants may steal, engage in illegal acts, or fail to pay the agreed rental fee.

2. Check if your insurance policy covers issues that may emerge from short term rental agreements
Most homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover short term rentals. Subsequently, you are liable for expenses incurred due to the acts of your guests.

3. Protection
Airbnb and other rental organizations may offer secondary coverage. Secondary coverage applies only after you cover expenses to a point when you exhaust your resources.

After you have reviewed the issues, decide if it is worth accommodating short-term visitors. Consult a qualified insurance professional or wealth and investment manager for advice.
