A brand has a reputation that is built by what people say about it. If you want to create a positive brand reputation, the first step is to monitor your brand on social media and online reviews. It will help you identify any negative feedback quickly so you can take corrective action before the problem becomes too big. In this blog post, we’ll go over three simple steps for how to improve your brand’s reputation.
Brand reputation management – Share your story with the world
Hey, fellow business owner. Do you want to improve your brand’s reputation? If so, get out there and tell the world how great our organization or product is. When more eyes are on our products/services than ever before, thanks to social media outlets such as Facebook & Twitter, etc., ensure people know exactly where they can go for all this information.
Things happen behind closed doors at businesses that aren’t always pretty, but shedding some light on them helps maintain transparency between companies and allows outsiders to understand who works in different industries, giving brand followers a better idea of the brand values.
Share on social media.
For public audiences who don’t have time or inclination to read up on brand literature that contains endless amounts of information, posting images and videos on Instagram, tweeting to our Twitter audience, etc., is how brands can let go just enough to show everyone that they’re “real.” Even if you only post one image/video per day related to your brand, this will help keep relevant eyes glued onto content instead of scrolling past without taking notice (which could happen with every other brand).
So get out there and start telling stories! Start sharing those moments we’ve been behind closed doors until now; we’re ready to show just how brand reputation is built and maintained with social media as the platform.
Brand reputation management – Create quality content that is relevant to your audience
If brand followers aren’t engaging with us, then what’s the point in all of this? How will brand reputation be built when no one is giving a damn about anything we’re doing or saying online other than our competitors who are already making moves to take over our brand space.
Don’t worry. It isn’t too late! Start creating content relevant to your brand audience so they see you as being on their level while also understanding where you fit into the bigger picture for how businesses should work best together.
What if I don’t know my audience that well yet?! That’s okay – start thinking about similar brands out there and do some research online to find out more about them via social media outlets & company websites etc. There will be brand followers looking for the next best brand to follow; all you need to do is create content that will attract their eyes to your brand.
Brand reputation management – Interact with other bloggers in your niche
Inspire others to join in the conversation!
A successful blogger is constantly networking with other bloggers of a similar niche. They use these connections as an opportunity for growth by sharing insights on relevant topics, asking questions about what’s going well. There are opportunities to fill gaps or create new ways to sell products/services better, etcetera.
You will inspire brand followers to participate in what you’re doing while also noticing the potential for other bloggers in your niche to fill any content gaps that may exist.
Participate in blog tours and interviews for exposure on a larger scale
This online branding guide only scratches the surface. There are so many different ways brand followers can get involved with relevant content while simultaneously growing their brand following by introducing new audiences to what they do best.
Participating in blog tours or interviews for this purpose will help brand ambassadors become great storytellers who know precisely where and when to share information about products/services without coming across as spammy marketing robots who turn people off. So let loose and tell stories through your writing. We’ll be listening!
Engage readers by asking them questions and responding to their comments on social media posts
You’ve been asking questions and responding to comments on your social media posts for a while now, but it’s starting to feel like a job. And that would be such a shame because we love how interactive this type of engagement is! So keep up with those prompts on Facebook or Instagram – remember not all responses need an answer (unless you want one) because sometimes brand followers wish to say hi or leave their thoughts without expecting a reply.
Your brand is what people say about you. Make sure that the person who’s talking about your company has good things to say by establishing a positive reputation with them through consistency, transparency, and responsiveness. The more they have to speak positively about your company, the better for both of you.
