Your business profits or lack thereof are a direct result of the reputation you have cultivated within your particular industry. If your sales are not where you would like for them to be, it is likely that your company reputation is lacking in some way. It is possible, however, to reverse negative opinion about your business. Reputation management or maintenance can be crucial to increasing favorable attention to you.
Elevate your business image by doing the following:
- Evaluate the negative commentary about your business and decide what problems to address. Consider the quality of your service, products, computer issues and employee relations.
- Create a hierarchy of changes that should be implemented and let the public know about them. Customers will be pleased to know you are doing something to rectify issues.
- Whether right or wrong, customer perception drives your business. Solving problems should be completed directly with consumers. Future positive experiences are critical.
- Increase positive vibes about your business by volunteering within the local community. Popular ways to accomplish this include sponsoring a ball team or making a donation to a specific cause.
- Get valuable input from customers through surveys. You will get more participation if you offer incentives for completion of surveys.
- Thoroughly train your employees about handling customers with understanding and tactfulness, even under duress.
