Online Research Tool For Lawyers

Introducing RepWarn

When I first got to see RepWarn it was being sold as a tool for businesses to monitor their Online Reputation.

online research toolIt will do that but I saw the potential for a much better use for it, namely a superb tool for every serious legal practice.

I was a Solicitor for over thirty years running my own practice so I have a good idea as to how lawyers think.

They live at 100mph and every day there are 5 or 6 things that MUST be done and if you can’t help with any of them then “stop wasting my time”.

You delegate what you can but ultimately it is always your responsibility to perform.

With the law constantly changing and the clients always demanding results there is no time during the day to think about anything but work.

And anyone trying to sell me something had no chance….unless it was something that I had to have and I was looking around.

Well…..RepWarn is something that I would have signed up for….but I would say that wouldn’t I?

Actually I wouldn’t.

I do not promote crap or anything I had not tried and was happy with.

Whereas it will help your legal practice on the internet it will help you look after your clients better…..and in the process pay for itself many times over.

Every litigator knows that you cannot have too much documentary evidence to support your claim.

This video shows how RepWarn will collate the relevant online information and present it for you in one place.

What Is RepWarn

You will see that basically it is a super search engine which runs continually in the background.

It searches the web, forums, blogs, news, videos, youtube, googleplus, images,two business related platforms and five social media platforms.

If someone is publishing or talking about a topic then RepWarn will find it and tell you about it by emailing you instantly, daily or weekly.

Thus you will always be up to date with what is happening in your field without you having to spend hours searching.

If you wish to see the sales webinar (which is all about Reputation Management) I have put it up here. It is 29 minutes long and in Australian.

You can get more information about how to make it work and seeing it in action there is a separate but more general explanation page here where I explain and demonstrate.

There is a Sign Up Button that will take you to the official RepWarn Sales Page but it is right at the bottom of this page.

Do You Need RepWarn?

Of course you can log into Social Media, News, Forums, Blogs, Google etc every day and check what if anything is being said about your chosen field of research.

Or if you dont have the time then you can pay your staff or someone else to do it for you…..but what a waste of a resource…especially as you can charge the Client for the time spent on research!

The Pro’s and Con’s of RepWarn

You can use a chisel as a doorstop or as a screwdriver….but it is best used as a chisel.

RepWarn is an information gathering tool. A sort of multi layered search engine.

It cannot think for you and so will only search for that information you ask it for.

You know the expression “Rubbish In Rubbish Out” so if you use the “wrong” search words then you will be disappointed by the results.

When you search in Google you get suggestions as to what people are searching for.

research signpostRepWarn does not do that so you must be careful as to the words you search for.

Its main benefit is that is saves you time.

What you are looking for may be on page 8 of Google so will you ever find that information that is the missing piece of your puzzle?

RepWarn finds it all and presents it to you in one place so that you can sift the wheat from the chaffe.

So the real question is how much is your time worth?

Do you enjoy continually refining your search and ploughing through the results and then having to log into the various social media platforms and searching again?

Wouldn’t it be easier to just set it up and be notified whenever something new appears on your chosen topic?

One of the main benefits of RepWarn is to tell you daily if your topic is being talked about.

And if you get no messages then it means that no one is talking or publishing anything new on your topic.

I believe that its best use is as a research tool as it will save you so much time and give you ideas that had never occurred to you.

Are There Free Tools Or Will I Have To Pay?

There are some of each and it does rather depend on what you are looking to accomplish.

Are you starting a new casetoolbox for reputation managementnning a new case and want to see who is doing anything in that field?

Or are you wanting to research a particular item and see all the updates?

Just as there are different tools in your toolbox for different purposes there are different softwares and services for what you are looking to do.

The Free Tools

If you want to know what is being said about a particular topic on social media then you can use Social Mention.

They say that “Social Mention monitors 100+ social media properties directly including: Twitter, Facebook, FriendFeed, YouTube, Digg, Google etc

It gives reports that you can go to but does it by source….so there may be 5 pages of facebook, then 8 pages of twitter then so many pages of….etc.

They also suggest/recommend that it is used regularly as you have to input the search. It does not monitor or alert you.

Monitor This will pull out for you your brand-related information from 20 search engines. It does this by subscribing you to various RSS feeds which you can read online with a newsreader.

Pin Alerts and TweetAlerts are services offered by….Pintrest and Twitter. They will alert you when someone mentions you on their platform.

Paid Services

Trackur tracks Facebook, Twitter, Google+ tumblr, Instagram, flickr, YouTube, news, blogs, forums as well as online reviews to bring you all the mentions your topic is receiving.

It has a nice dashboard which gives you lots of analytics including info about “strength” of comments.

They offer 3 packages. $97 per month gives 50 tracked keywords, $197 per month gives 250 and for $447 per month an  unlimited number.

Trackur is more suited to businesses who are very active on the research questions for reputation managementInternet and for whom tracking all their online mentions by themselves is a time consuming task.

ReviewTrackers lets you track all online reviews from more than 50 review websites, including all the major and industry-specific ones.

It alerts you to new reviews, and allows you to monitor multiple locations at once, respond to reviews from within the application, as well as request user reviews.

It promises to keep an eye on every major review website, including major review sites like Google, Citysearch and Facebook, as well as industry-specific sites like TripAdvisor, Cars.com and OpenTable.

They ask $49 per month for a single location business and you have to get a quote if you have more.

ReviewPush is another option in this regard with similar features, but it covers a lesser number of review websites.

It actively monitors and collects reviews from Google, Yelp, Facebook, Foursquare, Yahoo, and YellowPages, to name but a few. It does not cover Twitter or Linkedin.

They also ask $49 per month for a single location business and again you have to ask for a quote for multiple locations (tough if you only have 2) but they then add twitter.

If you are looking for Reputation Management that monitors items for you then there are several companies offering such services at a variety of prices.

Rather than list them all here you can find over 25 of them by reading this article that lists what they suggest are the best.

And yes…..I found all of the above by using RepWarn!

But here is a comparison table you will see on the sales page. Click the image to read in detail.
