Do you know what people find when they search the web for your business name, or type of product or service ? Are there any comments, reviews, feedback, discussions, insults being published ? If you think people will ignore or treat lightly what they read online about you, think twice, because stats prove you wrong. Read on to understand how you can monitor what is currently being said about you.
First, you have to understand that what is “out there” on the net can be comments left on a blog, a forum, an online review site (like Yelp, Insiderpages, RateMDS, … among others), your Google + Local page / listing (Yes, if you are a local business with an official name and address, you most certainly do have a google + local page where people can leave reviews about you), an industry or local directory or your website. Of course, it could also be in emails, but this is another matter…
Second, the sheer number of people who use the internet to search for a service or product is capital: over 90% according to most current statistics*. So ignoring your online reputation will be like giving the driver seat of your car to strangers, or worst, most likely people unsatisfied by your service.
