Every business should be concerned about their reputation. Especially with social media, it’s now so easy for negative information to grow and influence your audience. Oh and always remember people that are happy with your business, seldom common but those few that you upset more often than not will.

If you don’t have some sort of reputation management strategy in place, you may end up having problems and not even realize you have them. Then, once you realize it, it could be far too late to deal with it effectively. The main reasons you need a reputation management strategy are below.

Build Trust and Credibility

When you put positive information out into the world about your business, you help to build trust and credibility. By actively controlling the information that people consume, you can build more trust and credibility and even build your authority on your own terms, rather than letting other people decide for you what you’re an expert in.

Increase Customer Loyalty

When you are actively commenting on posts, serving your customers, sending great information to them in an email, and engaging with them online and offline, your customers will become even more loyal to you.

Increase Sales

The more people see your brand mentioned in a positive way, the more likely they are to buy from you. Even witnessing a conversation with someone who is disgruntled and upset with you, can cause quite an uptake in sales, if they like how you’re dealing with the contentious situation.

Get Out Information That You Want People to Know

Get as much content as you can onto various online platforms that contain the slant of information you want people to know. Educate them, inform them, and teach them what they need to know so that they know where to turn when they need more information.

Avoid a Reputation Crisis

When you build your online reputation in the way that you want it to be, you can avoid reputation crises in the first place because you’re ready with a plan if something should go wrong. If someone writes something bad about you and you’ve put out more good, the good will overshadow the bad.

Recruit Better People

When you have a good reputation in business, you’ll attract other honest people who also have a good reputation. You’ll have buyers who are honest as well as contractors who are honest, because like-minded people really do stick together.

Elicit Useful Customer Insights

When you’re monitoring all the buzz using Google Alerts and by hanging out where your audience hangs out, you can gain amazing insights from your audience and customers. Don’t forget to use email marketing, since your customers hang out in your email lists too.

Improve Message Consistency

The more information you put out to the public, the more practice you have with creating a consistent message for your audience. And the more consistent your messages are, the more consistent your earnings will become.

Developing and creating a reputation management strategy will improve your business in numerous ways – including building trust, creditability, and even making more money. The main thing is to be consistent and work on building, maintaining and promoting your business reputation always.

About Me

I've been designing and marketing websites and businesses for over 24 years and prior to this I worked in sales, marketing and big business for almost 18 years... which makes me not only old, but also highly experienced at this marketing and Internet stuff.  I've won lots of awards and helped thousands of people, and this website is a testament to the information I share freely to help others succeed online.

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.
