Reputation Management

Take control of your online reputation. Show customers that you care about them and your business.

You wouldn’t let your reputation go astray, why would you do the same for your business? 

Reputation is important in your personal life and for your business. The internet is a powerful tool that allows businesses to expand the word-of-mouth world onto a much larger scale. Customers typically search a for a business locally based on a city and the service or product needed. Customers are searching for credible and accurate information. Not only do reviews give your local rankings a boost, but they also persuade potential customers to do business with you (or not if they are bad reviews!).

How does a lack of monitoring your online reputation hurt your business?

  • Lack of Reviews – Reviews establish customer satisfaction and credibility of the business. Businesses are often looked over when no or little credibility can be established.
  • Up-To-Date Reviews – Congratulations! Your business received a review… four years ago. Businesses change owners, team members, policies, services, products, etc. It is important to show that your business is providing the same great service.
  • Negative Reviews – Rarely do businesses make every one happy. Typically, it is the angry customers that carry their frustration on review boards. These negative reviews can impact prospective customers’ decisions on whether or not to do business with you.
  • Unanswered Reviews – When a review is left unanswered, positive or negative, you are telling your customer that you aren’t acknowledging their concerns, thoughts, or comments. You are also telling potential customers that you don’t respond to your current customers’ needs.

Review Tips

  • Ask for reviews!  Happy customers usually are willing to write a good review when asked.
  • Don’t admit fault. Acknowledge the person’s concerns and offer a solution.
  • Businesses with Patients: Do not discuss a patient’s case online. This violates HIPAA Law and it unethical.
  • Offering incentives for writing a review is also unethical. Don’t do it!
  • DO NOT have co-workers, friends, or family write fake reviews for you.
  • Google and other search engines scan for fake reviews. Reviews can be subject for removal. AGAIN, DON’T DO IT!
