How DashClicks’ Reputation Management Software Can Help You Protect Your Brand Online
Building a positive brand image is at the core of every business’s success. It is crucial as it heavily impacts a customer’s buying decision.
Most of the marketing and branding happen online, so customer reviews on Google and social media take center stage when building your brand image. Reading an average of ten reviews is what it takes for a customer to trust a local business. It has also become commonplace because of the increasing marketing noise.
Since it is strongly linked to your sales, you should religiously monitor your online reputation. It is easier said than done because much of it is out of your control. However, there are specific tools to make your life easier while managing your reputation and protecting your brand online.
This article discusses DashClicks’ reputation management tool and how you can use this tool to protect your brand.
What Is Brand Reputation Management?
Customers’ perception is so crucial to your brand’s success that we need an entire process and a strategic action plan to manage it, and that is called brand reputation management. Its objective is to improve your brand image, primarily focusing on social listening, customer reviews, and brand mentions on Google and social media.
It is a continuous process; you need to work on it to know the market pulse and identify the scope of improvement in your products and services. A strong brand image leads to customer loyalty, a highly desired business metric, as it’s directly linked with repeat sales, revenue, word-of-mouth publicity, and growth. Damage control, firefighting, and maintaining communications with your customers are some critical activities you need to perform to protect your brand.
What’s Brand Safety?
Brand safety is mainly concerned with the appropriateness of content distributed by the brand, including advertisements, marketing messages, and all other types of content shared by brands.
Brands should exercise caution while creating content and choosing where it is being shared, such as ad space. You must ensure that the content or its placement is not associated with any negative consumer opinion. Brand safety is similar to reputation management and is its subset. So, brand safety is a broader part of brand reputation management.
