WebiMax Review: Best Reputation Management Service for Business

After conducting extensive research and analysis of reputation management services, we recommend WebiMax as the best reputation management service for businesses.

Ready to choose a reputation management service? Here's a breakdown of our complete coverage:

WebiMax is the most comprehensive reputation management service we reviewed. Not only does WebiMax manage SEO and ensure negative content is pushed off the first pages of search engines, the company also tackles marketing campaigns, web design, link removal services and more. Before you even sign a contract with WebiMax, the company will conduct a free analysis of your website and offer feedback regarding SEO practices. There's even a resources page on WebiMax's website to help you take reputation management into your own hands as well. [See Related Story: Choosing a Reputation Management Service, Buyer's Guide]

Of course, WebiMax will promote your most positive content, giving it a boost on the internet to make prospective customers more likely to come across kudos you've received. This is generally a standard service offered by reputation management services. One particularly attractive feature that WebiMax offers is its one-on-one guidance, which pairs you with a dedicated agent who conveys the ins and outs of your reputation management plan throughout the entire process. WebiMax also offers periodic "think tank" sessions to brainstorm new strategies specific to your business needs. In addition, they also offer social media services, which include most every major social network. If your social presence is lacking, WebiMax will create and build profiles for you. If your presence isn't optimized or appears unprofessional, WebiMax will fix those problems for you and help boost your social media sites in the search rankings.

Naturally, WebiMax will also keep tabs on your business's reputation over time. By using a number of methods to monitor the fluctuation of your online image, WebiMax is able to stay on top of any rising negative content and counteract it. They will not only address any potential threats to your image, but will also keep you in the loop and offer insights about what else you can do on your own to prevent those sorts of attacks on your reputation. This proactive approach was yet another reason WebiMax rose to the top of our list.

The company's only shortcoming is that it does not create and manage review content, but it's bevy of other services and the quality with which they are offered were enough to make WebiMax our top choice.

WebiMax boasts an experienced team adept at influencing your online image. While keeping you engaged and informed every step of the way, WebiMax's team is regularly undergoing training and continuing education programs. Since the internet is always changing – for example, with updated search algorithms – WebiMax's employees are always learning to stay one step ahead. The company's dedication to maintaining a knowledgeable and highly skilled staff was an extremely important metric in our decision to name WebiMax as the best reputation management service for businesses. Also encouraging is the fact that WebiMax is a Better Business Bureau accredited business that maintains an A+ rating.

In our experience, WebiMax's customer service was unmatched. Initially, we posed as a prospective client and were given a detailed rundown of what the company has to offer. After listening to the friendly, engaged customer service representative, we decided to follow-up and see what kind of reputation management plan WebiMax could offer our hypothetical business.

We dreamt up a small business that was just getting off the ground and needed to build up its image (it's worth noting that WebiMax will also work to repair reputations for businesses that have less-than-savory public images.) In our case, WebiMax helped devise a plan specific to the needs we outlined. Their plan particularly focused on creating a line of defense, so to speak, by boosting positive content on search engines and optimizing our own content so that it would outshine any future negative reviews that might crop up on the internet. This plan included the regular creation of new content, complete with SEO optimization, for the duration of our business's contract with WebiMax. This tactic could prove especially effective in driving traffic and encouraging more positive search results. Beyond the standard SEO and content creation services, WebiMax also included digital marketing services in its plan. These strategies included search engine and email marketing, lead generation and conversion optimization. For a new business like our hypothetical example, these services would prove indispensable when it came to brand-building.

We felt heartened by the attentiveness and patience of the customer service representatives in hearing us out and crafting a plan to suit our needs. Our final impression was that the folks at WebiMax will take the time necessary to work with you in a way that will truly benefit your business.

Pricing for WebiMax is reasonable given its large offering of services and high level of effectiveness. The company requires a minimum one-month commitment, which starts at about $4,000 for the analysis and setup of your company's reputation management strategy. Each month after the initial one costs roughly $2,500. That pricing was about middle-of-the-road compared with some of our other finalists, but the quality of services were well worth it. Moreover, the one-month commitment was among the shortest requirements we came across.

It's important to note these prices might change to reflect the specifics of your plan. Reputation management services typically build a specific proposal based on your expressed needs and goals; these proposals usually include the strategy they'll pursue and a specific price based on your unique situation. The numbers above are ballpark estimates and are subject to slight adjustments based on your individual needs.

We chose WebiMax from a pool of dozens of reputation management services. To learn more about our full methodology and for a more comprehensive list of reputation management services, visit our best picks page.
