Why Online Reputation Management is Important to Your Business

There is a lot of talk about online reputation management in board meetings these days.  It seems that as soon as businesses jumped on the web and social media marketing wave, the Internet evolved into an even more complex organism, now requiring a deeper look into marketing in this ever-evolving world.  It is no longer enough to establish your Internet presence.  Now you have to manage it: you MUST protect your reputation.  Why is online reputation management so important to your business?  Here are the things you should know:

The Statistics.  Studies show that 90 percent of all consumers use the Internet research businesses when searching for services or products they are interested in.  Regardless of the size and scope of your business, you simply cannot ignore that sector if you want your business to stay afloat.  Even more, over 99 percent of Internet users never get past the first page of search engine results.  They pay most attention to what they see at the top.  If you are not at the top, or if the top search results are not complimentary to your business, you are missing out – big time.

The Web User Experience.  Search for your business online.  Also, search for your brand, product, and/or service.  See what comes up.  Considering the above statistics now put yourself in a potential customer’s shoes.  Do you like what you see?  Is your web presence positive?  Do you stand out in the crowd?  Most importantly, based on what you see, would you choose your business over the competition?  If the answer to any of those questions is no, then you need to pay some serious attention to managing your online reputation.

The development of your online reputation.  Your business WILL have an online reputation, whether or not you choose to manage it – plain and simple.  The fact of the matter is this: if you do not choose to manage your online reputation, you can be sure that the public will.  Some of that may be good, and some of it may be bad.  Do you really want to leave such a major determinant of your business success (or lack thereof) in other peoples’ hands?

Online reputation management is a complex process, but it is also tantamount to your business success.  To make the most of your online reputation, you may want to enlist the help of qualified and competent professionals like us, Apple Pie Business Consulting.  We can be reached by phone, at (631) 259-7714, or by email: david@applepiebusinessconsulting.com.
