Fremont, California (PRESS RELEASE – May 25, 2011) – The JM Internet Group, a leader in providing Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Social Media classes online, is proud to announce a new reputation management tool: Buzz. Buzz is an all-in-one free tool for monitoring the online reputation of a business or an individual. A person simply inputs a search query such as a business or individual name, and Buzz creates various Google, Bing, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and other searches that identify recent searches for that person or business. Reputation management is a huge new issue in Social Media Marketing, and the JM Internet Group is happy to provide one of the first free reputation management tools.
“Reputation management is a new issue for many companies, both large and small,” explained Jason McDonald, Senior SEO and Social Media Marketing Director of the JM Internet Group. “Buzz is an all-in-one reputation management tool designed to help companies take the first step towards repairing their online reputation: learning what it is. We’ve designed it be easy, and we’ve designed it to be free.”
Online Reputation Management – Free Tools, Paid Tools, And Why It Matters
Large businesses such as United Airlines, Clorox, Starbucks and others have learned – often the hard way – just how important it is to monitor a corporation’s online reputation. But even small businesses – say a BBQ restaurant in Dallas, TX – need to start paying attention to the reputation buzz about them on the Internet. Customers are providing reviews on Yelp, videos on YouTube, commentary on Facebook, and Tweets on Twitter. How are companies to keep up?
Buzz is one answer. A user simply inputs a company name or person name, then clicks ‘get the Buzz.’ Buzz then returns an easy, clickable list of searches on Google, Facebook, Twitter, and beyond that illuminate the Buzz (whether positive or negative) about that company. Listening is the first step in reputation management, and Buzz makes it easy (and inexpensive) to listen.
Beyond Online Reputation Management Tools – Social Media Marketing Training
Buzz is the first free tool by the JM Internet Group, a leading provider of online training and classes in SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and SMM (Social Media Marketing). The Social Media Marketing classes begin with a free online ‘on demand’ webinar on the top ten free tools for Social Media Marketing, and proceed through the various social media: Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Google Places, Yelp, Twitter, Blogs and more.
Target students are businesses and individuals who want to learn not just social media, but social media marketing. Next class begins in mid-June and is taught online.
