Your reputation is influenced by perceptions that are constantly changing and evolving. It is essential that you are constantly working towards the reputation you wish to have and there are lots of things you can do to keep on top of this. To help anyone that is hoping to improve their reputation, Sapience Communications have put together a list of helpful tips.
Get your branding right
Your branding defines the way the world sees your company, so it is important to get this right before you do anything else regarding reputation. Think about how you want to be perceived and don’t ever overlook the power of good branding. Your branding is everything from your company name and logo through to your values and your professional tone of voice so, make sure that everything ties in together.
Good, strong branding will give you the foundation you need to be able to ensure you have the reputation you desire.
Work on your digital image
In this day and age, your digital image and online reputation are more important than ever. If someone wants to find out more about you then more often than not, they will take to the internet. So, ensure that they will find what you want them to when searching for you. Make sure that you have an outstanding website that shows off your branding, along with a variety of up-to-date social media accounts for people to browse.
Ensuring that your company’s digital image is in line with the way you wish to be perceived is a good way to both build and keep your good reputation.
Keep your promises
To put it simply, if you say that you are going to do something, do it. People want to be able to trust you and the last thing you want to do is earn the reputation of being flaky. Failing to deliver and breaking promises will also aggravate people and they won’t hesitate to tell others about their disappointment, whether it is by word of mouth or via a public review.
By simply ensuring that your company delivers what it says it will on time, and in a professional manner, you won’t need to worry about damage to your reputation.
Monitor your reputation
Once you have worked hard to build a good reputation for your company one of the most detrimental things you can do is forget about maintaining this reputation. It isn’t uncommon for people to cause damage to themselves by not being on the ball and responding to a problem when it happened. You need to ensure that, at all times, you know the way your company is being perceived and what people are saying about you.
Monitoring your reputation doesn’t need to be difficult but it can be time-intensive. If you can’t manage it in-house, then hire a company to do it for you, it is a worthwhile expense.
