Online slander is never good for an individual or business. Steven Wyer, the founder of Reputation Advocate, knows this first hand since he saw his business and reputation destroyed after false information was spread on the Internet.
As he worked to turn his reputation around, he realized that a lot of other people and businesses have had to deal with the same issues. For this reason, he is now helping others protect their online reputation through his business and his new book called Violated Online: How Online Slander Can Destroy Your Life & What You Must Do to Protect Yourself.
He told us that people should be proactive about their reputation. He advises that they regularly monitor what is said about them online and address any issues before they get out of hand.
