Last year, Facebook changed star ratings to “recommendations” for consumer feedback to describe their experience. Facebook stated that they hoped this change will expand review content to provide better information for the reader. In the business world, this may provide relief to owners who are often stressed out when a negative review affects their 5 star rating. It is still important to note that it is best practice to ask and encourage your clientele for reviews of your products and/or services. Consumers prefer to peruse many reviews on various social media channels with consistent, positive messaging. This helps potential new customers or patients to trust the reviews and make a decision to contact you; a powerful endorsement! If your a business in need of help with online marketing, please contact OMA Comp.
Meghan Markle is not unique by being plagued by trolls that portray her negatively on social media. She is just one of the more famous people so it is publicized on the news networks like CNN. Kensington Palace staff members are busy deleting comments and blocking abusive social media accounts. They are also using software for some of the most outrageous use of language and images. It is a full time battle to keep up her image. Unfortunately, people are swayed from what they read online. OMA Comp has been helping clients with their online image for the past 14 years.

The internet has grown into a massive marketplace for just about any industry imaginable. The way businesses are perceived online has also become far more important than it used to be. Approximately 84% of consumers say they give online reviews just as much weight as a personal recommendation. Why is online reputation management a must for your business?
Potential Customers Will Look for You
With so many review platforms, websites, and social media profiles, more people rely mostly or entirely on the internet to gather information about companies. That means potential customers will look for you whether you have established your reputation online or not. The best way to give yourself a greater chance of earning new business is by building a solid reputation that sends a positive message.
Establish Yourself as an Industry Authority
Reviews are only part of your reputation. The content you put out is another. This is an opportunity to position yourself as an industry authority. When internet users trust you, they will be more likely to seek out and share your opinions and recommendations. It also boosts brand awareness and recognition. Become the go-to name in your niche.
The Internet Reaches Across the Globe
The internet is pretty much everywhere. It is a valuable resource when you want to tap into new markets. Putting out content, getting reviews, and building profiles will make you more accessible to people all over the world. Contact OMA Comp to learn more about managing your online reputation.
