    I am thinking of doing Online Reputation Management (ORM) for websites/companies, which are very sensitive about their Online Reputation.
    I have no clues as to which niches/industries are very sensitive about their Online Reputation.
    Please give me the niches, where the websites & companies are very sensitive about their Online Reputation.
    Those who are thinking, what I will do next is to search Google with those niches and contact them from their "Contact Us" pages and provide them with a service/package of 100 different/unique positive reviews about their websites/companies on mainly forums. I will charge $200 for 100 reviews - $100 goes to the writer ($1/100 word) and $100 is my profit.
    I hope that this method works.
    So guys, please tell me the niches, where the websites & companies are very sensitive about their Online Reputation.

    You couldn't even wait 1 hour?

    This can be applied to literally every imaginable business out there.

    I don't know if you care, but your business model is going to end up paying you like a dollar per hour.

    Any profession that sells a service is typically a candidate for ORM.

    Have to agree.

    OP, you are kind of asking a backwards question. If you are offering to provide reviews, wouldn't you be checking review sites for potential candidates? The glaringly bad ratings for ANY company/business has GOT to be an issue.

    If you want to narrow down the industry category, a little bit of research online on typical revenues or customer volumes for a given location might be an indicator - the higher the dollar value of each customer, the more sensitive, I'd imagine, they'd be (e.g. roof repair would be more so than hair stylist). Also, the more customized or complex the service / product, the more they'd likely be (e.g. printshop vs gas station).

    You could get the biz in worse trouble...fake reviews are a total no no.

    Yelp will determine they are fake and slap an ugly banner on the biz yelp page telling the world they were so lame they paid for fake reviews. You could really make trouble for these companies and your own rep will go down the tubes

    Rep management can be legit if you help them get more (real) positive reviews - the "funnel" type plan.....combine with monitor their rep....you can dispute some "bad" reviews.....won't usually work but I have gotten some off, if foul language or a former employee etc...you can also do seo to help knock the "bad" reviews back down - lots of positive links, sites, social sites, press releases etc

    your idea won't work and you could cause a world of trouble.

    I'd find out businesses who provide services like HVAC and the like. These people typically charge a lot for their services and can afford to pay for ORM.

    Service industries are great in my experience, LOCAL service industries are not.

    Most of the time it is the service industry who are sensitive about their reputation. And often times it would be the local businesses who are the most sensitive about it. Whereas for the multinational and well-known companies, reputation is something they don't really care.

    It's a long list of professions: doctors, dentists, lawyers, journalists, realtors, teachers etc.. to this you can add celebrities (not rock stars ;)

    You could spend some time browsing through local listings and reviews sites, like Yelp. Surely that'd give some ideas, since you want to do it professionally.

    My focus is on realtors and financial advisers. I find them using agent name searches on their company sites (ie: Merrill Lynch and Re/Max) and they can be contacted through these sites directly. Often, they did not know they had bad reviews and crap their pants when they see them. Easy money. :)

    Few types of industries come to my mind:

    1. Those that are remote.. tourist-related for example, which you have to check from far, and have to rely on reviews
    2. Those with you don't use all the time, e.g. notaries, real estate, plumbers, ...
    3. (as others said) those where a customer is worth a lot or recurring, e.g. dentists
    4. Those frequented by new generation, who greatly rely on online reviews
