Build your reputation, manage brand visibility and combat bad press.
A brand’s reputation on review sites and social media channels can have a huge impact on a business. Your brand’s reputation can have significant influence on the effectiveness of your marketing. Maintaining that reputation involves looking at what your customers, clients and the world at large sees when you appear online. You need them to see the most positive aspects of your online business profile. Unfortunately, any sniff of ‘bad news’ travels very fast on the internet – and can obscure all of those positive messages. Perhaps there has been an item of news or a less-than-glowing review or comment posted online about your products or services. The problem is not whether what is posted is relatively important, the problem is more that this content can stay prominent in search results for a very long time. If it has been posted onto an authoritative, trusted website, blog, or other online platform, it can even seem to follow you – and your vital keywords. All the while, you could be losing business as those negative messages become faster and easier to find than the many positive ones you’d prefer visitors to see.
It’s true that online reputation management can’t ‘control the internet’ because it’s impossible for businesses to have items censored, deleted, or expunged, and no-one is suggesting that this should be done in any case. However, there is also no need to feel that nothing can be done and simply hope the issue goes away in time. In fact, you may find it does not go away. Instead, good online brand reputation management strategies showcase your strengths, the good news about your business success and what you do.
