Start With Your Website
In today’s business world, a DIY website from 2006 simply doesn’t cut it.
75% of customers admit to judging a company’s credibility by its website. Not only is this often the first impression of your brand for many, but it’s the center of your entire digital marketing strategy. It’s where your ad, social media, email, and SEO strategies attempt to direct traffic.
Also, every boost to your website is a boost to your SEO strategy. Building organic traffic is the key to building a memorable brand and improving your company’s reputation.
Most importantly, focus on improving user experience and a clear brand identity. Your design and web copy should represent your brand’s image and message at all times. On top of that, users need to navigate through your site uninterrupted on any device.
Always deliver on what you promise and remain direct and honest with your customer base. This is one aspect that many consumers value more than anything else.
Overall, you only need to follow some simple guidelines here. If you say you’re going to deliver something, deliver it. If you offer a price, don’t change it at check-out.
If something gets in the way, stand by your promise by offering a refund, exchange, discount, or something else. People generally understand that mistakes happen, so standing by your work is usually well-received.
Don’t Forget About Management
One of the most important factors in building a quality brand reputation is to provide excellent service. Word-of-mouth marketing is still one of the most effective tools out there for brands to build positive awareness and a quality customer base.
For that, you need to ensure that your team and everybody operating alongside your business are following policies and procedures, meeting deadlines, and representing your brand how you want. It’s not just managing workers, either. One critical aspect of this (that’s often neglected) is contractor management.
Remember, customers, don’t care who you blame. If they don’t get their product or service on time and up to the standards they need, it will reflect poorly on your business. The same applies to certain legal issues, such as HIPAA or OSHA compliance.
