Business owners understand that keeping a positive online reputation is key to running a successful business. At Media Shield, we stress that you, as a business owner, marketer, blogger, social media manager, etc. should ALWAYS monitor and manage your business online presence because it could either make or break your company. There are many different ways that your company can be negatively impacted by having an unfavorable reputation on any internet platform. This is the reason why Media Shield offers an effective online reputation management solution that is integrated into our Software as a Service (SaaS) platforms.
Let’s discuss some of the reasons why you need to keep an eye on your online presence at all times.
Your business online presence is one of the first things your customers consider before making a purchase. Have you ever looked up a restaurant and quickly glanced at the reviews? Yup! Consumers are increasingly doing their own research before buying anything. With a few tabs or click they can research products and services online, compare prices, and read reviews from other shoppers who have used the product or service, giving them an idea of what to expect when buying it.
Your business online presence speaks loudly to your potential business partners. Looking to expand with a partner or franchise your business? How does your business look online? Business analysts and potential partners will probably look up your brand on their favorite search engine and whatever they find there might be what will seal or break interest with them! Remember, your online presence first impression sets everything into place from thereon.
Your business online presence will be appealing to bloggers, local brand ambassadors, your local media, etc. Throughout the year we have learned at Media Shield that the power of having influential writers talk about the products/services offered by businesses is undeniable; these people can help you create awareness on what you offer and also shape public opinion which means positive reviews will outnumber negative ones greatly over time – giving you an even greater advantage when promoting their own brand alongside yours if done correctly. So, for your business, this could drive traffic to your site, increase credibility for clients or partners in more ways than one, and provide that free advertising that works like charm!
Your business online presence can attract qualified and best employees. Want top talents who will be committed to your brand and passion? Well, your positive online reputation is the best way to attract top talents. When you hire someone, it isn’t just a matter of who gets the job; both parties are choosing each other, and this can have a significant impact on potential candidates’ willingness to join your team. Just remember that negative reviews posted online may dampen the enthusiasm of high-quality job seekers!
