Everything You Should Know about Our Reputation Management Services
What is the significance of managing reputation?
How companies are conducting business has become more transparent and visible due to the advancements in digital technology and communication. Consequently, online reviews are no more restricted to products and services only but stretch to the domain of business operations. Everything that the company is doing from taking strategic decisions to its implementation and from the behavior of top executives to press releases, everything is now being criticized, applauded or condemned online. All this adds up to the reputation of the company which has a close link to its brand reputation too. Thus, the need for reputation management acquires special significance to drive business with positivity for sustenance and growth in the long run.
Why does reputation matter for business?
The business entity is as important to customers as the brand is to them. Consumers believe that good brands can only be produced by good business houses. How others are feeling about your business impacts the way they accept the brand that you promote. If people have a negative feeling about the business, they would not be interested in the brand that is presented, no matter how good the quality might be. Thus reputation of business plays an important role in brand building. What quality is to products and services, reputation is the same for business establishments; and some even argue that reputation matters much more than brand equity. Protecting reputation through proper reputation management is thus an important business agenda today. Any negative reputation can cause immense harm to a business, and that is why it has to be encountered with agility and expertise.
Should you dare to ignore negative reactions?
Building reputation takes time, and once it gets tarnished, it is not an easy task to recover from its negative impact on business. Nobody would take the risk to work with a company that does not have good reputation. Not only customers but all other stake holders of business would be affected similarly. Shareholders, investors and employees also would not like to be associated with a company that suffers from some negative criticism. The ground reality is that you can never be insulated from negative impressions. There can be occasions when some adverse remarks are posted about products or services, but ignoring it can cost your business dearly.
What is the most effective method of managing reputation?
Constant vigil has to be maintained to track how others feel about the company and its products that are reflected through the comments and reviews posted online. As soon as something negative is detected, it has to be countered effectively to nullify its effect so that the positive attitude and honesty can prevail. This is what reputation management is all about. The internet has opened up avenues of two way communication with consumers that has allowed negative comments to surface and circulate. Since it is not possible to eliminate the possibilities of negative comment generation, it is important to detect it immediately and arrange for its neutralization so that it does not adversely affect business performance. Walnut Solutions can become the watchdog for protecting the reputation of your business by organizing well planned programs that are aimed at generating positive vibes only. And we do it by engaging in constructive communication with the audience.

At the same time, we launch a concerted campaign to highlight the positive aspects of the company that adds more value to its reputation by negating the negatives that are being talked about.
Why focus on reviews?
While online existence is a basic necessity for business since it has created immense opportunities for growth, it has also brought along with it the possibilities of reputation being damaged by negative reviews. The majority of purchase decisions made by consumers are now taken after reviewing products and services online. Whenever consumers decide to buy a product, online or offline, they conduct research online to gather information about how users feel about it.
What others have felt about the products or services thus influences the buying decision of the majority of consumers. Almost 66% consumers have expressed their faith in online reviews on which they base their purchase decisions. Against this backdrop, online reviews acquire a lot of importance for buyers as well as for businesses. What others are telling about your company is a direct reflection of how reliable you are to them and is a mark about the quality that you can deliver. It is an indicator of your reputation too that has to be protected through effective reputation management.
How are online reviews managed?
There is no rocket science involved in devising a reputation management program for your business. We have been doing it with consistent results for hundreds of companies and can take up your brief for projecting a positive image of your company. There are five distinct steps that we follow to create the most effective program for you.
Reviews on the web are scrutinized – We have the necessary infrastructure for reputation management to continuously monitor all reviews published across the web about your products and services. Using a wide network of websites across the length and breadth of the internet, we keep close watch on the negative reviews that might adversely impact your reputation. By evaluating the merit of the reviews, we either respond to it to dispel the negativity or we can even arrange for its removal, depending on the gravity of the problem. Through a well measured response, we make our good intentions clear that speak of honesty and helps to renew trust without any negative impact.
Quick response – Bad reviews can spread like wild fire and cause immense damage to your reputation too soon, even before you could realize what harm it can do. Prompt response to bad reviews is the hallmark of our reputation management program. Responding to the review through efficient customer service or settling it behind closed doors before any damage is done are the most practiced methods that are followed. Promptness in responding demonstrates how much you care for your business reputation.
Generate positive reviews – Through carefully engineered campaigns of reputation management based on communicating with real users, we arrange to publish favorable reviews that are real. We encourage customers to air positive views that specifically mention what they liked. Publishing regular positive reviews helps to build a sustained campaign against negative publicity that can crop up time and again. Shady and cooked up reviews that are often passed off as genuine are usually vague, but the more specific reviews are, the more reliable it turns out to be.
Reviews are refreshed – We are aware that search engines prefer reviews that are published recently for considering it for search rankings. Accordingly, as part of the reputation management program, we arrange for a steady supply of positive reviews. We implement systems that ensure creation of a pipeline of positive reviews that can be used to maintain a steady flow of reviews which are more recent. Old reviews tend to lose their importance and relevance to consumers as products and services are continuously upgraded.
Emphasis on quantity – More the merrier is the concept as far as reviews are concerned. Having sufficient number of reviews would weigh down in your favor as compared to a few good reviews. We thus make arrangements to ensure that enough number of reviews is published regularly that can convey positive signals to consumers to act in your favor.
At Walnut Solutions, we work with business entities and individuals to inculcate a culture of reputation management in the organization. We work alongside companies to put a process in place that ensures regular generation of reviews that can reinforce their image and reputation. Other measures of reputation building are also carried out continuously to sustain the campaign in the long run.
How reputation can help business to earn more can be understood from the fact that it empowers you to call the shots when it comes to pricing. Banking on good reputation, as a business owner you are much comfortably placed to demand a higher price. This is a hidden benefit that comes as a bonus and is reason enough to protect and uphold your business reputation. Want to discuss a reputation management plan for your brand? Give us a call today!
