Digital Presence

Your digital presence is everything pertinent to your brand online.

Information about your business or organization is readily accessible via websites, social networks, directory profiles, news stories, and a variety of other digital channels. We identify the opportunities and challenges – and the gaps in between – and develop an action plan to address each of these touch points, as well as regularly measure your influence and risk.


Digital Influence

Your digital influence is your ability to drive a desired action both online and offline.

Whenever you share information – or someone shares information about you – it has an extensive impact. At the very least, people form an opinion about your brand. But it can go well beyond that to determine whether or not they will do businesses with you, and urge others to do the same. That is your online influence, and the more effectively you manage it, the better it will serve your needs. Accordingly, we work with you and your team to establish a baseline of digital influence and promote the essential elements to expand your reach, deepen your engagement, and enhance your relationships online and off.


Digital Risk

Your digital risk is the measure of your exposure to online threats.

Any information about your brand online – no matter what the source – has an element of risk. Not only can others post about you, but they can also alter your information to serve their interests or obstruct yours. Moreover, digital risk is more than just a technology issue. It is a problem that can seriously impair your relationships with customers, employees, regulators, and a host of other stakeholders. Which is why an increasing number of industry leaders believe digital risk management must be owned by the C-Suite.
