Reputation management is the process of curating and managing online reviews and ratings for businesses, with a primary focus on enhancing their reputation. Zach emphasizes that positive reviews and high ratings can significantly impact a business’s bottom line. Here’s why reputation management matters:
Building Trust: Positive reviews and high ratings instill trust in potential customers. When people see that others have had great experiences with a business, they are more likely to engage with it.
Influencing Purchasing Decisions: Many consumers read online reviews before making a purchase decision. A series of positive reviews can influence potential customers to choose your business over competitors.
Mitigating Negative Feedback: Reputation management also involves addressing negative reviews. Handling dissatisfied customers promptly and professionally can sometimes turn their negative experiences around.
Zach walks us through the reputation management process, highlighting its key components:
Customer Experience: A customer interacts with your business and forms an impression, which can be either positive or negative.
Review Request: After the customer’s interaction, a review request is sent via email or text message. This message usually asks for feedback on their experience.
Star Ratings: Customers are presented with star ratings (usually on a scale of 1 to 5) to rate their experience.
Automation: Automated processes kick in based on the customer’s rating. If they provide a 5-star review, they receive an incentive or coupon, encouraging them to leave more positive reviews.
Customer Engagement: If a customer leaves a less than 5-star review, reputation management allows businesses to reach out and address their concerns, aiming to resolve issues and, hopefully, improve the rating.
Zach suggests that the pricing for reputation management services can vary based on the size and type of business. He emphasizes tying pricing to results. Here’s a pricing strategy he outlines:
Determine the Value: Find out what one 5-star review is worth to your client. For example, if they estimate it’s worth $100, you have a starting point.
Set Monthly Goals: Guarantee a specific number of 5-star reviews each month. For instance, promise five 5-star reviews.
Pricing Structure: Charge a monthly fee, but make it performance-based. If you deliver fewer than five 5-star reviews, offer a credit for each review not achieved. Conversely, charge extra for each additional 5-star review beyond the guaranteed number.
Value-Based Upselling: Continuously monitor results. As clients see the positive impact on their business, they may be willing to pay more for additional reviews.
Reputation management is a powerful tool that can significantly contribute to your agency or business’s recurring revenue. By managing online reviews and ratings, you help your clients build trust, influence purchasing decisions, and mitigate negative feedback. Moreover, by pricing your reputation management services based on results, you align your success with your client’s success, creating a win-win situation.
