“Searching for stamps of credibility”

1. more than 40% of digital marketers monitor their companies’ brand online daily, while 21% monitor their online reputation hourly.
2. Nearly 40% of businesses will increase their investment in online reputation management (ORM) this year.

And I read these two great quotes from Simon Wadsworth, managing partner at Igniyte, an online reputation management agency in the UK:
