    Has anyone used a 'reputation monitoring' service before? I havent tried myself, but it doesnt look pretty interesting, where they pretty much scrape all your reviews from most platforms and put it into a dashboard for you etc. What do you guys think?

    Why woud you ever pay for this? It's nothing but doing a quick Google search and then setting up a Google alert to get notified when anything new comes up. It's a service we sell to local businesses because those people don't know how to use Google. The very fact that you are here means that you can do it yourself.

    On a totally unrelated note: I happen to offer reputation management. Now, the regular fee I take is $299,997 / month but for you I will do it for just $3997 / month and I will even wave the $499,997 setup fee! But only if you order now, since I won't be able to offer this service so cheaply for much longer. Give me your eMail and I will send you this FREE 5 page report on how to get rich on Facebook without doing any work!

    Of course, I am not looking to sign up for something like that. But just like what you said, a lot of businesses do not know about google alerts or using advance search techniques. They have no idea where their reviews are showing up at the first place. (some dont even know about yelp or god forbid, they dont even the existence of online reviews to begin with).

    If you want to offer this service, search for 7878's thread on ORM. Lots of money to be made if you go about it right. This is actually the business I'm getting in.

    I actually came across this whole ORM and monitor thing off 7878 thread. It has indeed gave me a lot of inspirations. However, building a reputation monitor/dashboard is probably not hard, but i am afraid it will violate a lot of reviews site's TOS - especially with yelp. Heck.. they dont even let Google scrape their reviews..

    Hey seoactive, in addition to setting up Google Alerts and taking advantage of Twitter Advanced Search manually, you can look into using Trackur and SocialMention too. The following are some other reputation monitering services:

    â– HootSuite - HootSuite will create a dashboard for you that highlights relevant conversations from around the web. Manage all your social media profiles under one interface. They have a really cool calendar scheduling feature as well.
    â– TweetDeck - Similar to HootSuite, TweetDeck will help you track relevant posts around the web and let you manage your Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn profiles under one interface.
    â– Mention.net - Create alerts for your brand, your industry, your company, your name or your competitors and be informed in real-time about any mentions on the web and social web. You can monitor up to 1,000 "mentions" per month using their FREE plan.
    â– Twazzup - Similar to the official Twitter Advanced Search. You can follow real-time tweets, as well as identify Twitter-influencers and trending hashtags related to your industry.
    â– CoTweet - This is for very large companies that have multiple people managing their Twitter accounts. You can assign different conversations to different employees.
    â– UberVU - Track your name and other relevant keywords across popular social media channels and blogs. This is a subscription-based tool like Trackur.

    There is A LOT more info on reputation monitering and review monitering in the following online reputation management guide:

    A Basic Guide To Online Reputation Management

    You might want to look at Step 2 of that guide specifically.

    Hope that gives some different avenues to exolore and opens more possibilities to help your clients.
