Intriguing. There is a company called Reputation Retriever who helps you out with any online defamation of your character or reputation. The tag line is one of a kind….Bury Libel like a Bone. You gotta love it. I first heard about the company in an article that also had advertising for golden retriever puppies so I was a bit confused but went to their site. On the site they say, they will tackle your problem “like a junk yard dog.” The site, however, must be unfinished because there is nothing up under About Us. And the photo on the home page seems to have an abundance of pretty women (14 women and 3 men). One of the women is holding a red folder which must mean she has urgent and dire information that must be dealt with immediately.
Here is their sell in their own words: “It’s important that you realize that usually the sort of people who start and continue smear campaigns about you or your business are known as sociopaths or psychopaths and may be dangerous. Are they disgruntled ex-employees, ex-lovers, competitors, enemies of some sort? As currently only your slander and libel enemies/sociopaths online are using negative phrases in their smear campaign against you, or your brand.”
My sense is that they’ve been in the online defamation situation themselves which is what they say further down in the service explanation: “Reputation Retriever is so effective because some of its own staff have had to protect their own names from Internet slander defamation.”
A different take on reputation management.
