4 Effective Ways to Improve Your Online Reputation For A Better Business

4 Effective Ways to Improve Your Online Reputation For A Better Business

The power of your online reputation can be used to build credibility, increase brand awareness, and increase sales. However, many people struggle to build a solid online reputation for their website and personal profile because they don’t know what elements truly matter. For example, the introduction of social media has allowed websites to build trust very quickly, especially when they have 10,000+ followers. There are many others things you can do to build your online reputation, that’s just one of them.

I believe your online reputation plays an even more important role nowadays because it’s part of the Google ranking algorithm. Google looks for specific call signs, like how much engagement your content is getting or links to your website URL. All these add up to form a complete reputation profile, which helps them rank your website.

Let’s get started and go through some other factors affecting your online reputation:

Social Media

A great way to build your reputation is by setting up social media profiles. Whenever a client or company is trying to find out about you, they’ll always visit your social media profile to find out about products, content, and the others you follow too. Social media has been growing in popularity each year because setting up profiles on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are free. You can tap into a huge audience without paying a dime so it’s important you take advantage of these platforms.[1]

Once you are done creating pages, it’s important you take the time to update them regularly.

Reply to Negative Reviews

A great way to show that you are personally involved with the customer experience is by replying to reviews. When running a business, it’s hard trying to please everyone so you’ll be faced with negative reviews. However, don’t be deterred because sometimes you just need to hear what customers are saying to help you make changes later on. The next time someone leaves a negative review, it’s important that you take the time to reply to each one personally.

You’ll also have people posting positive reviews, so take the time to answer and interact with them too.

Your Purpose

One of the easiest ways to hurt your reputation is by NOT doing what you say you’ll do. If you have a product site, then make sure you ship out the product when purchased by a customer. If you promise to post the best content on the web, then make sure your content is the best online. Not following the game plan is a sure way to lose customers and hurt your overall reputation. Afterwards, people will leave poor reviews on other websites about your brand and products.

Networking

One way to positively build your reputation is by connecting with others in your industry. A lot of people don’t like doing this because they feel they are then connecting with their competition. However, some of your competitors have been around for years building their customer base. They know what’s working in your niche, so can provide valuable insight on products, content marketing, and how to engage your audience. Use this opportunity to pick the mind of your competitors and learn as much as possible. Learning from them will help you avoid common mistakes that would otherwise cost you both time and money.

Final Thoughts

85% of the world’s population has access to the internet and they are using it to find out more about companies, products, and/or services. To improve your chances of online success, and to outshine your competition, you need to make sure your online reputation stays intact.[2] Above, I’ve outlined awesome ways to improve your reputation quickly so start to implement them now.

10 Steps For Success: Applying The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind

10 Steps For Success: Applying The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind

How big is the gap between you and your success?

What is the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people?

It is as simple as this: successful people think and talk about what they are creating, and unsuccessful people focus on and talk about what they’re lacking.

So how do you bridge that gap between wanting success and having your success? Let’s make an important distinction. You see, there is a big difference between “Wanting” and “Having” something.

Wanting: means lacking or absent. Deficient in some part, thing or aspect.

Having: means to possess, to hold, to get, to receive, to experience.

You can have one OR the other, but not both at the same time with any particular object of your desire. You either have it or you don’t.

When it comes to your subconscious, if you’re focusing on the “wanting”, i.e. the not having, guess what, you will build stronger neural networks in your brain around the “wanting.” However, through the power of your subconscious mind, you can focus on the “having” as if it has already happened. Research has shown that your brain doesn’t know the difference between what you’re visualizing inside your mind versus what is happening out there in your reality.

This is a regular practice of elite athletes. They spend as much timing creating the internal mental imagery of their success playing out as they do actually physically practicing. This helps create both the neural pathways in their brain and the muscle memory to consistently deliver on that success.

Here are 10 “brain hack” steps for success that you can take to create your version of a happy life. Make these steps a regular habit, and you will be astonished at the results.

Step 1: Decide exactly what you want to create and have

This is usually the biggest problem that people have. They don’t know what they want and then they’re surprised when they don’t get it.

Step 2: Write down your goal clearly in every technicolor detail

A goal that is not written down is merely a wish. When you write it down in full detail, you signal to your subconscious mind that you really want to accomplish this particular goal.

Step 3: Write your goal in simple, present tense words

…that a three year old can understand on a three-by-five index card and carry it with you. Read it each morning after you awake and just before you go to sleep.

Step 4: Backwards planning

See your goal achieved and identify all the steps required that it took to bring it to life. Making a list of all these steps intensifies your desire and deepens your belief that the attainment of the goal is already happening.

Step 5: Resolve to take at least one step every day from one of the items on your list

Do something every day, even if it is just one baby step, that moves you toward your goal so you can maintain your momentum.

Step 6: Visualize your goal repeatedly

See it in your mind’s eye as though it were already a reality. The more clear and vivid your mental picture of your goal, the faster it will come into your life.

Step 7: Feel the feeling of success as if your goal were realized at this very moment

Feel the emotion of happiness, satisfaction, and pleasure that you would have once you have achieved your goal. Visualize and feel this success for at least 20 seconds at a time.

Step 8: “Fake it till you make it!”

Confidently behave as if your subconscious mind was already bringing your goal into reality. Accept that you are moving toward your goal and it is moving toward you.

Step 9: Relax your mind

Take time to breathe, pray or mediate each day. Disengage the stress response and engage the relaxation response. A quiet state of mind allows your brain to access newly formed neural pathways.

Step 10: Release your goal to your subconscious mind

When you turn your goal over to the power of the universe and just get out of the way, you will always know the right actions to take at the right time.

Starting today, try tapping into the incredible power of your subconscious mind.Start with just one goal or idea, and practice it continually until you succeed in achieving that goal. Make it a game and have fun with it! The more lightly you hold it, the easier it will be to achieve. By doing so, you will move from the “positive thinking” of the hopeful person to the “positive knowing” of the totally successful person.

Hit reply and let me know what you’re creating!

To your success!
