Reputation Management: “Don’t wait until you have a crisis.”

  1. Be proactive about your reputation by searching for anything that is being said about your business.
  2. Complaints can easily go viral if not handled quickly. Make sure to send critics a reply quickly and courteously with details on how to contact you.
  3. 70 percent of reviews are good and 30 percent can be bad. If you look too perfect, it won’t be believable.
  4. Invest in tools to monitor what is being said about your business. You can either make the time or budget for the tools to search for your business reviews.
  5. Small businesses can implement free tools like Google Alerts and Google Reader for tracking their reputations.
  6. Reward employees for motivating customers to write reviews. Some companies have instituted an employee rewards program for getting a customer to write a review.
  7. Ask your satisfied customers to write reviews. Just send them an email and ask.
  8. Institute Social Media Guidelines so everyone is on board on the policy of handling a crisis.
  9. Allocate company ambassadors to assist in handling replies to a crisis.
  10. The Social Media “magic team” includes marketing, HR, and legal for creating guidelines.
  11. Participate in cause related marketing. Find out what charities your audience cares about and participate in them.
