Your Online Business Reputation
By Doug Burson and Ken Adams, Sphere Marketer & Analytics
When people are talking about you and your business online, you want to know about it. Now!
As a small business, it’s important to monitor your online reputation. Gaining the trust of consumers will make or break your company. Positive reviews and word of mouth marketing equate to trust and most people flock to online sites to review a business or get the opinion of friends and acquaintances. It’s essential to your business that you monitor what customers are saying so you can promote the positive reviews and make amends with the negative. Monitoring what people say about you and your business may seem overwhelming, but ignoring online media is costing you money and long-term sales. You must have a detailed summary report of consumer and client feedback that will help you to respond quickly to your customers and identify any areas of improvement within your business.
New Media Has Changed the Game
Your customers are shaping your brand and affecting your bottom line more than ever. Did you know 2/3 of people are more likely to buy from a store if they find positive comments about it online? Conversely, 50%! are less likely to buy if comments are negative.
The Reviews section monitors the top consumer sites where your business might be mentioned. If you see a bad review, respond with an apology, explanation, or incentive to win back the customer. If you see a good review, spread it around as much as possible. 90% of shoppers say online customer reviews have a major influence on their decisions to purchase.
