Defendmyname.com spamming forums
by Brian Turner
There are a number of Online Reputation Management (ORM) companies out there – you’ll hardly ever notice most of them in action.
However, defendmyname.com claims to be able to help protect brands, and showcases a number of big brands, as if implying that this is a high end company that knows what they’re doing.
Instead, I found someone from defendmyname.com spamming the Internet Business forums, trying to put up posts about lavoramarketing – who doesn’t have much good press on Google.
ORM I can appreciate – but if you ever find a company trying to spam forums with ads, that’s not ORM.
If you do work with a ORM, get them to show examples of what sort of work you can expect to get from them.
The danger is, like a lot of so-called SEO companies, you just end up with a campaign run by a clueless intern who can actually damage your brand instead.
That is, of course, presuming that defendmyname.com actually offers any real professional ORM solutions. :)
Bottom line is – be careful who you work with. For all internet marketing campaigns, you want experienced people with a professional understanding of the industry looking after your interests.
Otherwise, you could find yourself working with a company who damages you further.
