Repair Bad Reputation
Before the term ‘reputation management’ existed, Davis-Nitzberg was helping pioneer a multi-billion dollar a year industry. In 2007, Davis-Nitzberg founded Repair Bad Reputation, a private reputation repair, reputation management, and reputation defense firm based in Beverly Hills, California. Repair Bad Reputation specializes in improving the online and offline reputation of businesses and individuals.
When Davis-Nitzberg first began his work developing this concept few people could understand the value of his vision. “I would explain to friends or colleagues what I was doing and was always met with blank stares. They may have understood how this would apply to public figures, but they did not realize how the Internet would create an entirely new market where reputation would apply to every company and every person.”
Davis-Nitzberg is now a renowned speaker, blogger, and influencer within his field of reputation repair. With over seven years of experience as a reputation consultant Davis-Nitzberg’s work has put him in the trenches of some of the more difficult reputation management issues. Although his client list is safely guarded, he has worked closely with top musicians, celebrities, and politicians helping to define and develop damaged brands. In addition, his field now reaches across many socio-economic markets as online reputation applies to most individuals or companies success. “You could own a small business or a Fortune 500 company, either way you live or die by the public’s perception of what your company represents. If you are a high school student, realize admissions officers are looking online to get more information about you. Applying for the work force, be cautious of how you present yourself online. Looking to meet a love connection, your online presence is vital. It is a very exciting time for reputation repair: it is the wild-west, we are in an un-chartered territory. In many ways, we are creating a business from scratch. Going to the office is not working, I love what I do and I am proud to transform people’s lives.”
