Martech Outlook | Tuesday, September 21, 2021

Companies that dominate the search rankings manage their online reputation by advertising their company as experts in their chosen field through social media, public relations, online business directories, and blogs.

FREMONT, CA: Brand reputation management is the means of monitoring how customers perceive the company and taking strategic action to improve the brand’s image when necessary. Nowadays, reputation management is focused on monitoring and protecting the brand’s online reputation in places like social media, reviews, and Google.

Reputation management is an ongoing process that allows businesses to stay on top of their brand’s public perception and address potentially damaging situations as they arise. When one has a good reputation, it inspires consumer loyalty, which is a major source of revenue and growth. Conversely, a negative reputation might hurt sales and customer retention, but it can also help one understand more about the consumers’ preferences, which can help you update company operations to match their demands better.

Companies with positive online reputations share specific characteristics, including:

Social Networking Sites

Social media is an integral part of managing the brand’s reputation. It is essential to track, monitor, and respond to both positive and negative reviews and comments. Developing a comprehensive social media strategy will make the company and brand more accessible and customer-focused.

Strong Thought Leaders Throughout The Organization

Positively regarded brands will be regarded as thought leaders in their respective industries. They have business experts who have the authority and influence required to have a positive impact on reputation.

Dominance in Search Results

A managed brand identifies opportunities to influence search rankings and the Google position for key search terms. A long-term Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategy will propel the brand to the top of search engine results pages. By controlling the company’s assets, such as its website, social media profiles, and positive news outlets, one can present the best image of the company and brand.

A good reputation is free advertising, and the goal is to get as many ‘owned assets’ and positive online mentions on page one as possible. Companies that dominate the search rankings manage their online reputation by advertising their company as experts in their chosen field through social media, public relations, online business directories, and blogs.

Customer Feedback                       

Many businesses and brands use online reputation management to monitor and manage their online reviews. One does not expect companies to have perfect reviews and ratings; these can be a red flag for potential fake reviews–but an online review management strategy can help businesses gain positive reviews across targeted review sites. In addition, brand reputation management will assist firms in securing their position as an industry thought leaders. When their customers have questions that need to be answered, they become the go-to resource.
