Success is not always easy to achieve. Even those who work very hard find success elusive. Learning from those who are successful, consistently successful, sheds a little light on what is necessary rise above the crowd. The Small Business Forum at Web.com serves up interesting interviews with people who have succeeded. A recent interview with Status Labs President Darius Fisher raises awareness on Fisher, his company Status Labs, and the very important job of keeping one’s reputation pristine.
Fisher pointed out he went into entrepreneurship to better control his own destiny. Co-founding the reputation management firm Status Labs helped with this goal. Fisher approached managing the company from a variety of overlooked perspectives. Doing so has helped him grow the company quickly and significantly. One area Fisher put a lot of emphasis on was human resources. Fisher knew a company is only as good as the talent working for it.
Darius Fisher understood the necessity of making sure employees remained loyal to the fold. Employee retention is critical to keeping a company on solid, stable footing. Status Labs is not excluded from this very basic component of running a successful business. In a very detailed article published on Forbes’ website, Fisher went into quite a bit of depth about the things necessary to retain employees. At Status Labs, Fisher implemented a host of new human resources policies to make the company as employee friendly as possible. Doing so helps boost retention which effectively aids all clients to the company.
According to an interview with the Daily Beast, Fisher suggests small business owners and entrepreneurs should always focus on sales and not nonsense that won’t help a business. Sales and promotions are few factors in Status Labs’ success.
Darius Fisher has done a lot to draw attention to Status Labs. In addition to seeking publicity to boost business, he has sought publicity to raise awareness about the vital help reputation management work can do. One of the more interesting ideas Fisher came up with was to provide free crisis counseling to those persons horrifically impacted by the cruel Ashley Madison hacking attack. Both Fisher and Status Labs both received a great deal of publicity thanks to the media coverage of the free crisis counseling. Many people who never heard of reputation management discovered it through this unique marketing approach.
Look for more success from Fisher and Status Labs in 2016 and beyond.
