  1. 1. Reputation Marketing  Action Checklist Use this checklist to help you get started with reputation marketing, using our Reputation Marketing Pie. Build Reputation Market Reputation Create Culture Manage Reputation
  2. 2. Action #1: Relevant Reputation Make a list of reputation indicators that are relevant to your business. Here’s a brief list to help you think about it and get started:  Local listing/review websites (Google+, Yelp, Yellow Pages, etc.)  Industry specific review websites (DealerRater, TripAdvisor, etc.)  Product/service reviews (on your site and 3rd party sites)  Testimonials on the website  Social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, etc.)  Search engine results (Google, Yahoo, Bing)  Industry forums  Press mentions  What else can you think of? Use our businessreputationgrader.com if you’re a local business to find out what customers are saying about you for free.
  3. 3. Action #2: Building Reputation When you have your list ready, now you need to figure out how to begin building your reputation and increase positive reputation indicators. Focus on the easy ones first, for example getting testimonials is a lot easier than getting press mentions. Here’s a list of ideas to get you started:  Post-sale email campaign to ask for a testimonial and feedback.  Post-sale phone call to ask for a testimonial and feedback.  Post-sale email to ask for product/service review (ecommerce).  Send a post-card to clients and customers asking for testimonials.  Have a mobile form to capture testimonials.  Ask for a video testimonial on location when meeting with client.  Use helpareporterout.com to get press mentions.  Contribute to industry blogs.  Sign up with review/rating websites.  Sign up with ShopperApproved* to get ratings and increase sales.  Ask clients to share their experience with others on social media.  Provide pre-filled tweets for clients to easily share and recommend you using clicktotweet.com.  What else can you think of?
  4. 4. Action #3: Marketing Reputation Consider this, reputation indicators (testimonials, reviews, mentions, etc.) are pieces of contet – just like a blog post or ebook or inforgraphic. Promote them as if you’re promoting your other content. Here’s a few ideas to get your started:  Display testimonials and reviews on your website, on all pages.  Include testimonials and reviews (including starts) in your marketing collateral.  Share testimonials and reviews on your social media profiles.  Include ratings in your ads (AdWords has this feature).  Share press mentions on your social media profiles, write a blog post about it and include it in the email.  Post video testimonials on YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook.  Post video testimonials on your LinkedIn profile and page.  Use testimonial as your ad copy with a call to action.  Turn your testimonials and reviews into beautiful images to share in social media, social networks and even photo sharing websites.  What else can you think of?
  5. 5. Action #4: Managing Reputation To manage your reputation you need to do 2 main things: monitor and engage. You need to monitor your reputation to understand what others are saying about your business, and also when you need to engage them to respond to a negative review or thank them for a positive one. Always engage! Show them you care. A few tools you can use to monitor your reputation.  Google Alerts – search results  Twilert.com – Twitter mentions  KGBpeople.com – you in search results  Hootsuite* – social media (use columns to filter searches)  Gagein.com – Google Alerts on steroids  Follow.net* – follow your website and competitors  Reputation.com – various reputation monitoring  Any other you can find that are relevant to your business?
  6. 6. Action #5: Create Culture The key to building and maintaining a 5-Star reputation is culture! You must take the time and resources to train your staff to work with your customers resolving issues as humans do, not robotic responses. Train your staff to always be asking for testimonials and feedback, there’s nothing wrong about asking for them. You’re only one customer away from bad reputation, and if an employee has a bad day due to personal issues resolve it (maybe give them a day off) rather than have them take it our on your customers. Think prevention, not care! Foster employee empowerment, so they can respond to negative reviews and deal with issues on the spot. Over 90% of customers say they will return to do business if an issue was resolved quickly and efficiently.  Get your employees to follow Robin Sharma’s work.  Get them to read Go-Getter book, it’s free for Amazon Kindle.  Invest in professional customer service training programs. For our customers, we offer unique training center with videos to help build and foster reputation culture for their employees (including a quiz to test their understanding). Help them take ownership in their work, your business!
