    Hi Everyone,

    I was reading and reading all about rep management on this forum, and after I finished reading, I wondered, how do I test my rep management skills before using it on a client?

    Can someone help?

    Thanks,
    Nicholas

    First test your skill if you can get a client.

    Rep comes when you think and workout a game plan then execute...

    Make sure you are 110% in tune with what you will be selling. If you only know the surface of what your selling
    then don't expect to be sell-worthy confident when the time comes you are in a position to sell to a potential prospect. When you do have all the necessary knowledge under your belt, then it's all about implementing the steps that you can find anywhere in this forum or in E-books although 7878's thread is a great start for implementation and even prospecting. Execute, Examine, and take measures to ensure it will be a successful outcome for the company or client.

    You WILL make mistakes, but it's from those mistakes and failures that allow you to become better and master your own unique kind of selling and fulfillment of any particular service or product. Find the aggregate of the service that is to be implemented and determine your pricing and make sure you have the room for profit. ORM is definitely one of the more tedious services, but in return the profits are much greater making it worthwhile. Get contracts and make sure to throw in a NCC or CNC in case the client decides to try to take advantage or ask for things not included in the original contract. That is, if you use a contract. With big clients like in ORM its recommended you do so.

    Don't over think these things though. Just soak up everything about what you want to sell and know what your talking about then you will be able to sell it. From there things will appear easier over time and with hard work. Things worth having won't come easy so don't expect this to be. In no way am I trying to discourage you, I definitely hope you pursue this as it's absolutely great. Hope this helped.

    Warm regards

    Hey Nick, there are a few ways to test your skills.

    1. Get a client and see if you can finish the job.
    2. Pick a random business or person from RoR and see if you can move a particular page to the #1 spot.

    If you can do either of those, you probably have enough skills to do a rep man job. The hard part isn't being able to finish the job, it's finding clients.

    If you're planning on doing reputation management you should probably take care of:

    1) your personal name

    2) your company brand

    ...if you don't have a brand, get one going before trying to enter this space. Your best chances for success are as a real business.

    I know if I was hiring a rep management firm the first thing I would check is the SERPs for the company name and the owner's name.

    Hi korachi_guy,

    I do not expect some bad netiquette in an online web property like a 'forum', clearly a forum refers to something that people could discuss and share about, and maybe there are some hectic stupid threads out there, but mostly, that is what builds a forum, stupid people meeting smart people. So I really appreciate your comment, you must have a happy life.

    Thank you for your time.

    Sincerely,
    Nicholas

    And no one in this world is perfect is it? Everyone has their strength and weaknesses, and most of the weaknesses are weird and stupid, but who cares. I have my question, I have my confusion running on my mind, then why not I ask through this forum? Are you thw owner of this forum? Who are you to judge me? If you aren't, then mind your own life
