It is a bitter sweet pill that we swallow today as we proudly announce our placement in the Reputation Online Top 100 Agency rankings.
It’s great news that we came in ranked as the number one independent for our work in this space (and number two overall). But it is unfortunately tinged with sadness as we also say farewell to Reputation Online who announced its closure earlier this week.
Over the past two years Vikki Chowney and her team have consistently delivered the latest news, insights and industry perspectives that those who work in the social media space have often required to help stay abreast of the ever-changing digital landscape.
Not only has it been through their own contributions from all across the New Media Age team, but also with the addition of the ‘open post’ policy where anyone with a point of view (and a reasonable understanding of the basics of grammar) could submit their own story for publication.
Last year, for example, right when the Hyundai/ITV/World Cup debacle kicked off, we ourselves had an article featured discussing the merits of taking a potential PR nightmare for all involved and switching it to help boost sales.
And it is in this global-reaching area of marketing & communications [online reputation management], that professional teams across the globe are now learning to specialise in. Reputation Online’s work it seems, now more than ever, will be sorely missed.
We at 1000heads wish Vikki and her team the very best for the future and say thank you, once again, for the opportunity to appear in the Top 100.
