How can you take care of your online reputation?
Sometimes it can be difficult to manage your online reputation when receiving negative comments, or avoiding attacks from brand haters or trolls, so we give you these tips below:
Keep an eye out for notifications of messages you receive via email or your brand’s social networks. The ideal is to have a certain time during the day to look at them and evaluate them, it can be two or three times a day. Remember to review comments, reactions to your posts, direct messages and requests.
The customer service of your company must be adequate, your agents must give quick and close answers to users.
You must have empathy and a pleasant tone in the line of communication to follow, in this way it is possible that the user is more likely to use the services or products of your brand over what your competition offers. This should be applied not only to customer service, it is ideal that you apply it to all types of communication you do with your brand.
If you receive negative comments, put yourself in the user’s shoes, contact them in a friendly tone. Sometimes negative comments are given by people who want to attack your brand, but other times it may be a user who has a reason to complain.
Correct the negative aspects of your products or services.
Interact with users, respond to their comments. Make them feel close to your brand.
Be transparent, help users develop trust in your brand.
Apply online surveys to know how they perceive your image on the Internet, with the results you can generate strategies to help improve your product or service. Use software such as Encuesta.com to help you collect the information you need.
Remember that maintaining a good relationship between the company and your customers is essential for a successful online reputation.
