  • Interestingly, all the crises management strategies was put into play for BP, but they're still in the litigation dock and looking to pay upwards to $60 billion+ in damages, punitive damages, and environmental fines. That's aside from the tens of $millions they spent on crises management.

    Most of the social networking strategy BP's crisis management PR firm used was totally predictable after the first volleys.

    1. The reasonable person approach.
    2. The concerned housewife approach.
    3. The economic concerns.

    When people got wise to that, then came the hired psychopathic trolls.

    When that didn't work, the next step was robotic spamming the comments with pornography and weird sites that contained versus.

    Then there were the mirror Facebook pages and also sites purporting to be against BP.

    The truth of the matter is that once a company loses their reputation, they don't have enough money to buy it back again - the stigma linger on for decades e.g. Exxon.

    The moral of the story is - honesty is the best policy and don't put yourself in a position to generate public animosity.
