That’s why it’s important that your online reputation rehab professionals have experience. You want reputation repair consultants who’ve been there, to help you develop an effective restoration plan when social media goes out of control.

Bad news always travels fast, and news outlets can latch onto a narrative with remarkable speed. That’s why you need Red Banyan’s seasoned experts on call to help. We know how to handle reporters and can speak to your situation with confidence and authority.
Our reputation management experts know how important it is to correctly present the facts, lock down your message and be truthful about what you say. Red Banyan’s PR experts understand the harm a lie can cause because facts can easily be checked. You never want your name or organization linked to statements that are clearly false.
Success hinges on credibility. Red Banyan’s reputation rehab experts have worked hard for years to establish reputations that are respected for their adherence to truth. At Red Banyan, we don’t tell lies, we don’t sell spin, we deliver truth.
3. Press the Truth
Red Banyan’s online reputation management consults don’t simply tell the truth in a plain, matter-of-fact way, and hope for the best result. We work hard to convince audiences to side with our version of the story so they disregard all other versions. We press the truth.
This means that Red Banyan’s rehab repair professionals use all the tools of reason and rhetoric to tell a client’s story in a compelling way. At Red Banyan, pressing the truth is our proprietary approach to crisis PR and online reputation management. It’s part and parcel of everything we do.
Timing is another factor to consider when pressing the truth. Many times, it’s advantageous to pre-empt negative accusations or coverage that you know are coming your way. If you get to the press first and communicate your story before it’s told by others, then you’re the one providing the context.
When you provide the narrative, others have to work within the confines of the borders you’ve established, and the nuance of language that you use can color their opinion. Leave it to others to react to your story.
How Long Can Online Reputation Repair Take?
Fixing a tarnished online reputation is different every time. Because of this, there isn’t a simple answer as to how long it will take. Deploying content and changes to displace something negative in Google can be tricky. Modifying what comes up in search engines depends on how much new content can be deployed to help overwhelm negative content that you would prefer did not surface.
- Red Banyan’s social media monitoring team will monitor multiple social media platforms on your behalf to determine how your brand is being discussed online, and if there is a need to further manage your online reputation.
So how can social media enhance your organization’s brand? First, it can increase brand awareness. If your organization’s goods or services aren’t online, it’s a lot more likely that you won’t reach your target audience. Being online immediately increases your brand’s visibility. Social media can also be used to humanize your brand.
By showing potential customers how your brand helps, or works in the world, you create connections with people that would otherwise be missed. You create reasons why they should care. It’s also a fact that social posts that are interesting or engaging will keep your organization’s mission front and center.
People think about things that cross their paths. Did you know that social media is also a great way to engage interest? By asking questions, or encouraging people to respond, you can draw them into a conversation that may have them coming back. Social media is also an excellent tool for crisis communications.
When something goes awry, negative news can spiral out of control on social media. Red Banyan’s social media experts are also trained in crisis management and have the know-how to tamp down any social media meltdown that may occur.
