Reputation, Economy, and Your Business
What are the biggest challenges affecting the growth of your business? Reputation? Economy? Location?
In order to effectively make changes and improvements to your business in the interest of growth, you must first evaluate and realistically acknowledge where your biggest challenges are. Some things may be out of your control, but other obstacles may be surmountable. You must first consider where your stumbling blocks are. Is it your reputation? Economy, whether of your area or globally, is not exactly within your control, but can make a huge impact on your business, and can be taken into consideration when making decisions regarding marketing or even pricing.
Your business’s reputation is always an important factor. Customers do not generally choose to do business with a company with a poor reputation. If you have a tarnished reputation, you must decide whether the information out there is based on fact, or if it is unfair. If it is based on fact, then it is up to you to correct the problem and to find a way to let the public know you have acknowledged your shortcomings and made the necessary changes or improvements. This could be a change in your workforce, your products or services, your pricing, or simply your attitude and how you treat customers.
However, if the negative feelings the public has about your business are unfair, there are several ways they can be addressed through reputation marketing.
