Business owners now need to realize that their online reputation is something they should not ignore. In fact business owners are highly encouraged to take control and manager their online reputation. This statistic alone should scare or motivate any entrepreneur to take charge of their digital footprint. Businesses or professionals such as doctors can risk losing more than half of all potential business if search engine results display negative results in the first page. Basically, the more negative things you have on search engine results, the more you will suffer in potentially lost business.
Getting your online reputation under control is not a Herculean task. The best way to start is by doing a thorough Google search and maybe a Yahoo and Bing while you are at it. You might want search Google images as well. Carefully look at what the results bring. If you see negative results, make a note of it.
Once you have an idea of what your reputation is, it is time to take action. If you have identified negative social media postings or images, you should try and remove or take them down. This is called cleaning up your online reputation. After all you don’t want a client or investor in your company digging through personal embarrassing photos or trolling comments you may have made years ago. Experts from Status Labs suggest removing as much of the negative stuff as you can and your online reputation should see a major improvement.
The next best thing you can do is to create a personal website and include a personal bio or about us section for a company. This page should rank high in search engine results and be an informative and authoritative source of information about you on the web. Try to use your actual name, your company’s name or a deviation of your name or brand name as the URL. Doing this will further improve your online presence.
Some additional tips to make your personal and company page standout include adding an active element to it. This means that you publish new content on it such as a blog or press releases periodically. Providing a method of contact can also make you more credible and lead to business opportunities.
When film actress Kate Hudson launched Fabletics in 2013, it quickly became clear that the star was much more than just another celebrity putting their name on a product line. Now, four years later, Kate Hudson has taken the fashion industry by storm by consistently developing brilliant strategies that have earned the athletic apparel brand incredible success.
Now valued at over $250 million, Fabletics earns more each year than Amazon’s exercise apparel department. A large part of the company’s success has to do with Hudson’s understanding of the priorities of the modern fashion consumer. She realizes that today’s shoppers care more about customer relationships and personalized experiences than catching a good deal.
The Fabletics VIP Membership Program
Fabletics was launched as a retail website, complete with an online shopping cart and an inventory of hundreds of extremely stylish athletic apparel items. The company’s claim to fame, however, is its VIP membership program. Instead of shopping for items by browsing through the online store and adding them to the shopping cart, VIP members pay a monthly fee to receive a full exercise outfit in the mail each month. The flat monthly fee of $49.95 means that VIP members actually pay less per item than they would had they purchased each item through the shopping cart.
Fabletics selects the outfit for each VIP member based on a lifestyle quiz that is given to customers upon signing up. This quiz gives Fabletics an idea of which products each subscriber wants based on their tastes in clothes as well as the types of workouts that they enjoy.
Blogger Teri Hutcheon has been a VIP member for several years. She was first motivated to join the VIP membership program out of convenience. With a busy exercise schedule, Teri had spent much of her time shopping for workout clothes, often spending up to $50 on just a pair of athletic leggings. Letting Fabletics select the clothes for her was a dream come true. Plus, Teri was dazzled by the affordable prices of the high-quality Fabletics products.
Recently, Fabletics has introduced physical stores around the country. These stores are reverse showrooms, designed to encourage customers to join the VIP program by building personal relationships and letting customers try Fabletics clothes on in person. About half of the customers who walk into a Fabletics store are already members and 25 percent become members before walking out. The success of the strategy has led to the development of more stores around the world.
If you want to join the VIP membership program and start receiving a workout outfit in the mail each month, visit fabletics.com and take the lifestyle quiz.

In an Article published on CNBC.com, Timothy Armor writes about how Warren Buffet is opposed to the short term investing mindset. We all know Warren Buffet as the legendary investor who has pledged billions of dollars to charity. He has recently made a bet of $1 million against a team of hotshot young investors.
He wants to teach them a lesson by showing them he can beat their hedge funds through using the passive index of the S&P 500. Buffet has long been a proponent of the idea that investments should be held onto for many years. Those who use this strategy benefit more over the long term. It is also very smart to save money for retirement according to Warren Buffet. Get your money in the market, and keep your money in the market if you want to live comfortably when you are older. They don’t call him an investing oracle for nothing.
Timothy Armor is betting that the hotshot young investors have bitten off more than they can chew in this case and that Buffet will soundly thrash them in the indexes. Still, the $1 million wager is not a big deal to a man who possesses billions.
Tim is no lightweight in the world of investing either. He has worked for 34 years as a financial analyst. He began his career in The Associates Program at Capital Group. Now, he is the head of the company, holding the position of Chief Executive Officer. He also holds positions on the board of directors for the company. Tim has made service companies and telecom companies his specialty. He studied economics and got a degree from Middlebury College. He is a native of the city of Los Angeles and seems to really enjoy life there.
From the start of his career, Tim was recognized as someone with great potential. and he continues to distinguish himself at Capital Group.

In an attempt to see if she could improve the overall condition of her dull, lifeless hair, a young woman decided to try one of the WEN cleansing conditioners she saw advertised on television. As a self described hair care fanatic, she wanted to see if the claims about WEN’s amazing properties were true. To help her determine if WEN actually did perform the way the advertisements claimed, she decided to keep track of the results she saw every day for one week. After completing one week of using WEN she compiled her results into an informative article she supplemented with color photos of her hair, which she then posted on Bustle.
The first difference the young woman noticed when using WEN was that it did not lather the way traditional shampoos do. As she worked the product into her hair she also noticed a difference in the way her hair felt. Her hair actually felt as though it was becoming thicker while she used the Fig version of WEN. The conclusion she came to after her week long experience with WEN, was that she did notice at the end of her day her hair did look shiner and healthier even though she admitted to using styling products to help hold it in place.
Specially Formulated to Restore Damaged Hair
The different versions of WEN by Chaz are designed to treat the various problems people have with their hair. All of the cleansing conditioners in the WEN line are sulfate free, which is why they do not lather like traditional shampoos. They also contain botanical elements derived from natural plant sources, which is why they can help repair damaged hair. The restorative properties in WEN can help add volume, body and shine to dull, lifeless hair as well as repair hair that has been over-processed through perming or coloring. Wen products are available on the Wen Website and the official Chaz Dean store (http://chazdean.com/store.aspx). Get yours today!
