At a time when your business’ image can be changed in a few moments online, one thing is clear: active management of your reputation is critical. More American businesses are learning the power of the consumer voice in a digital age, though are unsure how to address potentially deleterious actions, comments, and reviews. In this article the OMAcomp team will outline what reputation management is and how it can help grow your business.
In the simplest terms, reputation management is the active control of a business’ reputation. This public relations centric focus requires the alignment of marketing and strategic business functions to control how the public views the business online and in the physical world.
A positive public reception of your business influences sales and increases the effectiveness of marketing campaigns. To mend a poor reputation, businesses can activate event and concept targeted marketing and rebranding efforts. A distraught customer’s poor review of your business online could influence prospective leads into choosing an alternative provider. Regardless of the legitimacy of a poor mark on your reputation, each must be addressed quickly and with the appropriate measures. Maintaining complete oversight of your reputation is time sensitive and intensive, though well worth it to ensure maximum sales.
