How to Know What Others Are Saying About Your Business

Running a business is hard work, but it can be a little easier if you have a good idea of what others think and say about your business. Having a plan that keeps you in the loop will help you catch problems early and emphasize the things you’re doing right. No matter what business you are in, staying in contact with your customers and understanding their opinion of your company will help you keep your business on track.

Open Lines of Communication

The easiest thing you can do to keep an eye on what’s being said about your company is to keep lines of communication open. The easier you make it for customers to communicate with you, the more quickly you can find and resolve issues. Make direct messaging available through your website and provide accessible email addresses and phone numbers for communication so your customers don’t have to look to- hard to contact your company.

Through easy direct communication, you can make sure you are informed about your company’s status and ensure positive experiences for your customers.

Monitor Your Reviews

With the numerous platforms available for customers to make reviews, they can be hard to keep track of. That said, knowing what is being said in reviews is essential to running your business effectively. That’s why using a program to centralize reviews can be so helpful. You can get all your reviews into one location with services like Yext. With all your reviews in one place, you can easily monitor what’s being said about your company in reviews online without having to seek out each review platform individually.

Keep Track of Your Mentions on Social Media

Social media has become one of the most prominent places for customers to talk about the companies they love (or have had problems with). By following social media posts about your company, you can get an idea of how you are generally perceived.

Having a strong social media presence yourself can also help you respond quickly and effectively to customer complaints online and create another way for your customers to get in contact with you.

Keeping track of your reputation is an important part of running a business in the world today. Through open communication, reviews, and a social media presence you can make sure you know what’s going on with your company and what others have to say about it. Encourage your customers to communicate with you so you can continue making your company as great as possible.
