Small businesses in Missouri often seek ways to catch up with larger businesses. One of the easier ways to do this is through internet marketing. With its 24/7 availability and high return-on-investment, online marketing campaigns are an effective way to show your brand to the world. Having a presence on the Internet, however, can be a double-edged sword.
The problem is that the Internet is an open forum and that can easily become a liability for you. This is because anyone can criticize you if they want to, and this is made even more difficult by the fact that they can do so anonymously. Your competitors can easily take advantage of this to try and damage your reputation. A damaged online reputation can lead to less customers, and that can be devastating to small businesses.
