Across businesses and industries, growth is tied to word of mouth. The success of your business is heavily impacted by what people say about you. This is not a new phenomenon. Word of mouth has always existed, and potential customers have always reacted to the experiences of past or current customers.
What is new is the way customer experiences are shared, and the weight that each positive review or negative comment can have on your future. Social media comments can often make or break a reputation.
Reputation Management is absolutely necessary for any business trying to compete today. It combines public relations, marketing, and search engine optimization to create a positive impression of a business or brand.
Social media platforms are the modern public square and reviewers want to let others in on their happiness when a business exceeds their expectations. They also care about saving others from negative experiences. A thorough reputation management strategy focuses on regular, methodical engagement to impact how your business appears to both the reviewer and the potential customer reading reviews. Your positive reputation starts with a genuine commitment to letting customer feedback drive your business practices.
Add to that the fact that a single negative review on a social media site can cost 30 new customers and you start to see why it’s well worth your time and effort to consider online reputation management strategies.
