When it comes to selling stuff online, reputation matters a lot, no matter if you sell real products or just digital services, your reputation is really important!
When it comes to big companies, they need to worry about everything their employees are doing at work and even off work. That's why they need to be careful who they're hiring. In essence, the bigger you are the harder will be to maintain a perfect unstained reputation.
Freelancer have it way easier than big companies. All they need to do is maintain positive customer reviews right? Well...sort of, but not really. If you have a positive and professional attitude towards your clients here on SEOclerks, that doesn't mean you are free to be a total prick here on CD or maybe on different forums. Not even social media is excluded, your whole online presence IS your business card and you need to maintain a professional attitude no matter where you are!
What is your take on this? Are freelancers free to do and say whatever they want on their social media profiles or other online websites?
Or once you are an online freelancer you need to accept that everything you do on the internet can influence your freelance reputation?
