Gone are the days when one would pull out the local phone book to look for a product or service that is needed and/or desired. In today’s world, one of the very first places that most people will turn to is the Internet. Search engines such as Google, Bing or Yahoo help you to find options – MANY options – at the touch of a few keystrokes.
Do you know what your prospects, leads and customers are seeing?
We all hope that our peeps out there love us…. but the reality is that every now and then, you will run into someone who just thinks you suck. It’s sad but true. Another unfortunate fact is that these are the people who most often yell the loudest and farthest.
This is one of the main reasons why managing your personal and professional reputation online is so very important. Your online reputation is there eternally, working either for or against you 24/7. Social Media Marketing campaigns are sentient. They grow and thrive based on the feelings they evoke. It is essential to ensure that your message is being received as intended – and to react swiftly if it is not.
We always recommend checking in on yourself at regular intervals. It is important to know what is being said about you and where it is being posted. It provides you with an instant snapshot of your reputation and visibility – allowing you to adjust as needed in order to achieve an optimal level for brand development.
