Maintaining your company’s reputation
used to be a fairly simple task. Even in the early days of the
internet, there weren’t many places for a person to voice their
complaints if they weren’t satisfied with something. That’s
obviously not the case anymore. Nowadays, it’s easy for someone to
let the world know if they’re not happy. And those bad reviews
could be costing you a ton of money.
A company’s online reputation is one
of their most important assets in this day and age. It can mean the
difference between success and going out of business. Most companies
are vaguely aware of this, and yet, very few take the time to
actively manage their reputations. When it comes to reputation
management, there are a few things to keep in mind.
We’ve all had to deal with
disgruntled former employees from time to time. With sites like
Glassdoor and Indeed, it’s easy for these disgruntled employees to
voice their complaints. Unfortunately, these sites often contain a
bias of negative reviews. Most former employees are there for the
sole purpose of venting their frustrations, which creates an
overwhelmingly vocal minority.
What makes this problem even worse is
the negative testimonies don’t even have to be true. A person can
say virtually anything on the Internet without consequences.
Nonetheless, most people will assume what they see is fact. This can
lead to a bad reputation among other businesses and make it seem as
though your company is performing poorly.
These problems can happen with
customers as well. Many people base their buying decisions almost
entirely on reviews they see on sites like Google, Yelp, Facebook,
and other such places. And these buying decisions can happen very
quickly. Studies show that potential customers read less than ten
reviews before making a decision. If the majority of these reviews
are bad, you could be losing a lot of money.
This problem can be somewhat remedied
by actively engaging with your customers on social media sites. But
even then, it’s impossible to be everywhere at once. There’s so
many places where people can go to express their opinions, and you
can’t monitor all of those places on your own.
