How to manage brand reputation online effectively

In the previous article, we discussed the importance of Social Media Monitoring. Let’s continue with this topic and discuss further about how to manage a brand’s reputation on the Internet.

To manage one brand’s online reputation well, there are three steps to begin with. The first step is 『monitoring』 which can help find out the online discussions about the brands and what makes the netizens so unsatisfied. The second step is to 『repair』 which trivialize and optimize the negative comments and scandals on the Internet from the past to the present. The third step is to 『reveal』 which can further achieve the brand’s optimal image such as how trustworthy it is, why it should be strongly recommended, etc.

Speaking of 『monitoring』, which I have an in-depth discussion regarding the social media monitoring in the previous article. The key is to search for the main point, the range, the strengths and weaknesses of the brand via the social media online discussion and find inspiration.

In the second step 『repair』, the marketing manager needs to consider what content needs to be trivialized. For example, to penetrate some positive opinions in some editorials and point out what recovery work has been done by the company. During the repairing process, our top priority for trivialization is the recent bad news or scandals, and then gradually trivialize the negative discussions in the social media platform including forums and Facebook.

For example, Hoi Tin Tong (herbal products chain) was reported by the Apple Daily three years ago that they resell the suspected moldy Herbal Jelly after reprocessing. It lead to extensive discussion online. If Hoi Tin Tong wants to address the issue, they should trivialize the negative news from the Apple Daily first, making them more difficult to search, and then deal with other online comments. Due to the time sensitivity of the search level in the latter case, even there is no search result now, it doesn’t mean there won’t be any search result in the future. Therefore it can’t be ignored.

After trivializing, the ideal situation is that when we search for the brand name on the Internet, the top search result is the company’s advertisement, the official website, the Wikipedia information page, the brand’s Facebook page and related video clips, followed by some positive news and discussions.

When it comes to the third step 『reveal』, the brand needs to indirectly display the positive brand image to the web consumers through a third party. There are usually two methods, including establishing the word of mouth and with the help of the KOL (Key Opinion Leader) propaganda – using the positive comments of industry leaders to rebuild the brand image.

As known, Hoi Tin Tong launched a new TV commercial after the scandal. Their CEO Ng Yiu-Ming and celebrity Lou Hoi-Pang responded to the accusation in a form of dialogue, trying to repair the brand image. Unfortunately, the netizens did not accept it and the Internet is even flooded with more negative comments. If Hoi Tin Tong was to use the KOL to regain the confidence of the consumers, the result would be much better.

Although the comments online are complicated and out of control, we still have to actively and continuously manage the brand’s image. Otherwise, when there is an outbreak of problem and crisis, it will be difficult to turn the tide, or require double the effort for less achievements.

Google谷歌海外推廣的過程中 如果通過LinkedIn發掘潛在客戶

眾所周知在谷歌海外推广的過程中社交媒體營銷所占比重是很高的,2020年特別是受到疫情影響,外貿行業利用傳統展會、平台等形式發掘客戶已經不再適用了,如何通過新的渠道來發掘客戶是外貿行業迫在眉睫急需解決的問題,而LinkedIn作為唯一一家獲准在國內運營的海外社交媒體平台,雖然大家都知道它是一個求職和招聘集一體的平台,但是卻忽視了它還是發現並於客戶建立聯系的最佳社交媒體平台。 LinkedIn領英最適合B端外貿的社交平台,客戶質量非常高。是一個任何外貿人都不能放過,更不能錯過的開發客戶新渠道。對很多優秀外貿人來說,他們早已將領英視為收集潛在客戶信息資源的有效來源。 如今領英已經成了外貿行業開發客戶的香餑餑。根據最新數據顯示,LinkedIn領英全球用戶超過6億,中國LinkedIn領英用戶已經突破5千萬,而中國LinkedIn領英用戶裏超過80%都是從事外貿出口相關業務的,也就是說你的同行很可能早已經通過LinkedIn領英開發客戶,搶占市場了。 一個優秀的領英帳號是可以為你持續性的帶來客戶,帶來詢盤,帶來訂單的。如何利用LinkedIn領英高效開發客戶資源和穩定有效的詢盤?我們不妨向那些優秀的外貿人學習,試試社交化主動式開發。 搜索尋找潛在客戶 領英自帶模糊查詢功能,搜索框輸入關鍵詞(產品關鍵詞、人名、公司名),它會給你列出一堆搜索結果,有完全匹配的也有半匹配的。 通過LinkedIn領英直接找出目標國家內自己產品的所有潛在客戶,從中找到關鍵人的郵箱、或公司的領英賬號,快速精准的搜索獲得海量豐富的客戶資源。 良好的內容互動率 內容互動率指的是一篇內容的點贊、轉發、評論、轉化的數量。在LinkedIn中,一個賬號發布的內容獲得越多的互動,賬號就會在相關的搜索和類目結果中,獲得越好的排名與推薦曝光。這一點提示我們,發布內容一定要優質,而不是粗制濫造。 自我營銷 既然是商業社交圈,那麼如何讓客戶信任你?專業的形象,自信的表現,對本行業產品的認知,這些都可以通過LinkedIn profile, Article或Share An Update,以及Company page等體現出來。 加入LinkedIn領英群組 加入一些與你的行業,利基或興趣相關的小組,擴大你在領英LinkedIn上的社交圈。參與小組活動是一種以有機方式結識潛在客戶並與之互動的好方法。 LinkedIn領英SEO優化排名 領英是一個搜索引擎,有自己的排名機制。你在LinkedIn領英上的搜索結果中排名越靠前,客戶找到你的幾率就越大。因此對於外貿企業來說,SEO優化搜索就是很好的一個方法。...
