With offices in Tel Aviv, London and now Cape Town, Veribo has placed itself at the technological forefront of Online Reputation Management. This has been achieved through a sophisticated art of controlling and maximising online presence using unique and highly effective methods that enable companies, brands and individuals to better control their front-page search results and push unwanted results down.
The company is also able to effectively influence Google’s auto-complete feature, a specialised service not offered by many local ORM companies.
With the availability of “premium ORM” services in South Africa generally lacking, demand for the Veribo model and product offering has increased exponentially in recent months with the majority of new business coming from corporates and enterprises in mining, retail and banking – traditionally sectors where advanced ORM strategies are a necessity.
Why South Africa? ‘’The South African market has been lacking a premium and globally recognised ORM offering for some time,’’ comments Ran Blayer, Global CEO of Veribo. ’’The model has been highly successful in numerous countries and after a steadily increasing number of business enquiries from African-based companies and entities, we decided to open an office and appoint Business Development Managers in Cape Town and Johannesburg to answer to this demand. There is an undeniable hunger in South Africa for more technology in the Online Reputation Management realm and we have already begun working with various PR and marketing agencies, not to mention direct requests from the corporate sector. With more international ORM trends trickling into the country, we foresee the demand for implementing a more premium ORM strategy increasing.’’
‘’With nearly 25 million Internet users in South Africa and a 14% one-year growth, online research is only going to increase and with that so will the need for more complex ORM strategies.’’
‘’This is critical in today’s working environment where an increasing amount of South Africans are using search engines to look into and build references on brands, people and services. We give control back to our clients by helping them effectively manage their front-page search results, and avoiding the damage that unsolicited and often false reports and articles can cause to one’s reputation,’’ adds Blayer.
Operating in eight languages and servicing over 12 countries, Veribo’s clients are diverse, some of which include leading organisations in the private sector as well as high profile individuals and professionals who are looking to maximise their online reputation.
