Reputation Marketing

Is Your Online Reputation Helping or Harming Your Efforts to Get New Customers?

Your online reputation is very important to understanding how you will be able to get more new customers. With many new customers beginning their search for a new business that offers what your business offers start by looking at business reviews online or on their mobile phone, do you realize how important your online business reputation is to your ability to get new customers?

How often do you Google your name, your business, your product or your employee’s? How about your competitors? Open another tab or browser window now or do it as soon as you finish reading this page. We think you’ll be surprised at the results and how many business owners, professional and their employee’s are damaging their ability to get new customers online.

What if potential new customers see a bad review from a former customers, ex-employee or even a competitor (it happens)? How will this affect your business’ ability to get new customers? How much is each lost customer worth to your business? How much more would your business be worth if you didn’t lose customers this way and could get new customers more easily?

You know the old saying, “a dis-satisfied customerwill talk with 20 people, while a satisfied customer rarely tells anyone”.

Well, Not anymore! With the Internet a bad rating, review or comment can be seen by thousands of customers and prospects and affect your ability to get more new customers for years to come!

Do you have a way of monitoring what dis-satisfied customers, ex-employees, even competitors are saying about you online? It can be devastating to your business and if you’re not monitoring and acting on it it could harm your ability to get new customers.

Our Highly Specialized, Exceptionally Effective, Business Reputation Defense Solution monitors your online visibility and most of all your business’ reputation on the web, on key review sites and on key social media sites each month.

Allied Business Connections helps you monitor your online reputation by finding everything that is said about you, your employee’s and your business in reviews and on social networking sites and displays it in monthly reports, weekly alerts and in an easy-to-use dashboard.

In addition we maximize your online visibility and reputation by getting you properly listed in trusted online business directories, search engines and GPS, Auto and Mobile navigation systems. This will also ensure your presence when customers use sources other than search engines to look for new businesses like yours and ensure the key contact information for your business is consistent across the web.

There’s a lot of bad information about businesses on the web, incomplete, inaccurate, or duplicate listings that can make it difficult for you to connect with and have your customers trust you and for the search engines to trust you, which negatively impacts your visibility and rankings on them.

Our Business Reputation Defense service finds that wrong business listing information and then the reputation specialists at Allied Business Connections work to neutralize it. While no one can guarantee removal from the review sites or Google Plus Local reviews, unless of course, you work for them, our service provides you with insight into what’s being said about you online, crafts a strategy to suppress negative reviews and also helps to actively market and┬ámanage your information and participate in conversations that are happening across the Web.

Don’t let the buzz about you or your business turn into a buzz-saw! Also, don’t let the “fly-by-night”, so called-“online reputation management experts” that call you or send you something in the mail, fool you into believing that they can “remove” negative reviews, because they can’t.

Another thing, ask yourself, what’s in it for those review sites and Google to want to remove those, short of a court order? If you can’t look them in the eye and tell if they are straight out lying to you, then you shouldn’t do businesses with them. Remember Boiler Room with Ben Affleck? They worked those poor business owners and doctors over the coals until they bought, and then look what happened….they lost everything they handed over to them. I can’t use the word “invested” because invested generally implies a return will be gained and risk is assessed based on thorough analysis. Make sure you do your due diligence before you hire any professional consultant including us. At the very least meet them “in person” or pick up the phone and call them before you hand over any money.

Our Business Reputation Marketing & Management services range from cleansing, (pushing undesired results down) and protecting, (making it hard to rank for branded search terms and putting contingency plans in place), to steering, (influencing research queries for media and public opinion) and dominating, (controlling the big picture across all related search queries and result types).

For more urgent situations where your online reputation has already been tainted by dis-satisfied customers, ex-employees or even competitors, then we can help you restore your good name with our Emergency Business Reputation Repair services.

While some review sites allow you to respond to a negative comment directly on the site, the best solution is to get more positive comments about the true value of your company ranked higher or more visible than the negative comments. That’s where the Emergency Business Reputation Repair service from Allied Business Connections comes in to play.
