As a business owner, reputation is everything. The first thought that comes to mind when people think about your business can make all the difference between a successful sale and nothing. The Internet has made it remarkably easy for people to post their opinions and reviews regarding businesses. This online reputation is ultimately a double-edged sword. While it can be the single source for people to look you up, review, and then go to your business; it can also be what drives people away. Given that the most widely used reputation/review websites out there do not require commenters to leave their personal information, it is very easy for people to slander your business without ever having interacted with you.
Why Is Managing Your Online Reputation Important?
- Words are only words – except when they can change up to 80% of people’s opinions even before they walk through the door of your business.
- In addition, 44% of adults search for professional services online as well.
- Finally, 78% of customers will research the product online prior to purchase.
That is why it is of the upmost importance to maintain your online reputation. Let’s take a quick look at how you can ensure your positive stance online.
