What exactly is online reputation management (ORM)?

ORM means you choose to take an active role in managing the online reviews for your business. It's about proactively seeking to get positive reviews for your business and minimizing the damage of any negative reviews.

The importance of online reviews for your small business can't be understated. If you aren't convinced, here are a few statistics from a recent BrightLocal Survey that may change your mind.

  • 84% of people trust online reviews as much as a personal recommendation

  • 90% of consumers read less than 10 reviews before forming an opinion about a business

  • 73% of consumers think that reviews older than 3 months are no longer relevant

  • 74% of consumers say that positive reviews make them trust a local business more

These stats highlight the importance of managing your online reviews and having a system in place (online reputation management) to make sure your online reviews are helping you grow your business. 

If your business doesn't have a strong positive online review presence this needs to be one of your first priorities.  Why? Because most consumers will go online to check out your business before making a buying decision. If you have a lack of positive reviews, out of date reviews, or a low rating this will significantly impact their opinion of your business.

If you are spending money advertising and you haven't first squared away your online reputation management you could be wasting money. Get your online reviews squared away to ensure you make a great first impression that leads people to choose you.

Another often overlooked aspect of reputation management is that prospective customers aren't the only people checking out your company online. Referral partners and vendors/suppliers may also be looking at your online reviews...reputation management is not something you can simply ignore. You've got to proactively take control to ensure your business is perceived accurately online.

To help you get started with your online reputation management we've put together some tips.
