For those of you that celebrated the Christmas holidays, you are probably feeling a sense of relief, especially if you have children. The countdown to close out 2018 and ring in 2019 is underway. With less than a week away to 2019, most business owners might be feeling the pressure to spend those marketing budget dollars before 2018 is up. If you haven’t invested in your online reputation, you may want to consider a few factors first.
- OVER 90% OF CONSUMERS READ ONLINE REVIEWS
In fact, there are over 26,000 reviews posted online per minute! That is a lot of opinions floating around out there and some might be about your business!
- NEGATIVE REVIEWS ARE NOT GOING AWAY ON THEIR OWN
Negative reviews come with the territory, that is why it is vital to manage your reviews. Managing them manually is difficult–with over 600 review sites, you’re seldom aware of all your reviews.
- IN SPITE OF YOUR BEST EFFORTS…
Some of your customers are NOT happy and they’re telling everyone online. But unhappy customers are disproportionately vocal and often don’t fairly represent your business. Some are even written by competitors! Also, sometimes you’re not even aware of all the reviews on every review site
- IT TAKES TIME TO MANAGE YOUR ONLINE REVIEWS
Especially if you don’t use reputation software–time that you simply don’t have.
