If people search for your business online and find bad things, they get a bad impression of you.

Negative reviews destroy trust and respect. So if you just allow them to stay there in full view your business reputation will suffer.

One of the worst things you can do is do nothing.

It won’t disappear on it’s own, and the longer it stays there, the more damage it does to your image.

 

How much does reputation management cost?

repairing+reputation+negative+reviews+about+businessThink about how much you are losing each month by having a bad reputation… The chances are that the cost of a business reputation management campaign will be nowhere near as expensive as doing nothing.

If you don’t repair you reputation you are throwing money away. You have to invest in the cure, rather than ignoring how much money you are losing when people read negative things about you and go to your competitors instead.

It might sound harsh but you have to be realistic. Powerful brands spend a lot of money protecting their image, and if you have a bad image you have to spend some money repairing it.

Remember this… You are paying for a service that not only repairs your reputation, but protects it in the future, and becomes a platform to connect with new customers and get additional business. It is an investment in your company. Reputation management is complete protection and promotion in one.

Yes they do. A bad review from a customer has the power to take down your company. When people read bad reviews about your business they will not give you their money. What’s worse is that when one person complains about you, it often leads to more negative comments. We have seen many companies that have complaints on forums that are pages and pages long. This all begins with one person posting something about you, a customer reading it, and deciding to share their story.

If you don’t do something about it, it just stays there and steals from you.

How long does it take to repair my reputation?

It all depends on how much negative content is out there. How long it’s been there. How powerful these websites are. How established your online presence is. How competitive the phrases are. And what needs to be done.
