In 2016, Francis Santa opened Business Image Lift with the intent to assist businesses as well as individual people with managing and reclaiming their online presence. Since it began, Business Image Lift has been helping hundreds of clients to take control of and become confident in their online reputation. “Our clients sleep better at night knowing they’re being taken care of,” says owner and founder Francis Santa. “I have gone through my own challenges with online presence, and I understand how anxiety-inducing it can be to constantly wonder what people are seeing when they search your name online.”
Before it ever opened its doors, though, Business Image Lift was just a concept. Santa began doing his research in 2011 and, after many years, was able to discover a way to remove undesirable content from the internet using the legal system. This never before seen way of removing content has become the basis for the business today, which is currently flourishing and has an office located in the beautiful Boca Raton, Florida.
Business Image Lift provides hope for those who have been victimized by negative online content. Both businesses and individuals have become victims of others that use the internet in order to enact revenge or intend to ruin another person or company’s reputation. Further, there are few systems in place to filter or verify content. Negative content is posted, goes online, and then proceeds to stay on the internet forever. These posts are far from harmless, and could cause a business thousands or millions of dollars in lost revenue from clients or could cause an individual trouble when seeking employment, housing, and credit approval. Not only is it frustrating, but it is also unfair.
“This is not a large business, and we don’t desire to be,” says Santa. “We are experts at the job and we work with a great amount of care on all of our clients. We create intimate relationships with them and treat them the same as we would our own friends and family. I am always available to our clients via cellphone and I try to get back to them as soon as I can to make sure that they are happy and that they feel like they’re really being cared for.”
Santa believes that what has helped his business to grow into the success it is today is that he makes sure to establish trust with the clients. “In our business, many people will try to scam you in your most vulnerable moments,” he says. “What’s different about Business Image Lift is that we don’t simply tell our clients to trust us to do the job, we show them that they can!”
To celebrate their 5 years of business, Santa and the team at Business Image Lift had a small get together this weekend. “I’m so proud of how far we have come and how far we still have to go,” says Santa. “Knowing that you’ve helped your client regain control of their life is what makes all the work worthwhile. Looking to the next five years, we will continue to focus on what really matters: getting the truth for our clients and getting them their justice.”
