No matter your industry, your online reputation can make or break your business. A good reputation is priceless and impacts much more than just your brand’s perception. It is vital to any organization and directly impacts sales, revenue, and profit.

A well-planned and executed online reputation management strategy increases trust. It not only highlights a business’s unique selling proposition, but also effectively counters any false claims by competitors.

Here are some ways to manage and improve your online brand reputation with the help of a review management company in Santa Rosa.

Generate Customer Testimonials

The modern consumer places more trust in testimonials than advertisements. Almost 90 percent of consumers say positive reviews have influenced their purchase decisions. 58% of Fortune 500 executives believe online reputation management should be a core part of every business’s branding and marketing strategy.

Here are some surefire ways to get more customer reviews.

➢ Give your customers a reason to share their experiences. Incentivize reviews through means of a gift voucher or exclusive offer.

➢ Streamline the process of writing a review, the easier it is the more likely customers are to leave one.

➢ Create a process for asking for reviews

➢ Personalize. Every time you ask a customer to write a review, share a personalized video, thanking them for their support

➢ Send review request emails at the right time (usually 1-2 days after a customer has purchased a product)

If you have too much on your plate already, but know that you should make your brand’s reputation a priority this year, get in touch with a company in Santa Rosa to help you manage your reviews.
