Followers Come and Go, Often

The goal with social media is to constantly be gaining followers. You want your count to be going up, never down. That may seem obvious, but it’s easier said than done. Take a look at Techno Goober’s Facebook Follower count:

Unclaimed instagram post

When it comes to managing your business’s reputation, there are a few key metrics you should be paying attention to. You know most of them by now:

  1. Reviews
  2. Followers
  3. Referrals
  4. Retention
  5. Others?

Reviews

The first one is obvious. You want to have different reviews from different customers in a variety of places to ensure that no matter where your prospective customers are looking. Encourage your happy customers to leave reviews on Yelp, Google, Facebook, and directly on your website. Bad reviews can be difficult to manage, but they will happen. Get help managing bad reviews

You’ll want to keep your reviews fresh too. Reviews become outdated to prospective customers after a few weeks. You should aim to earn 1 new (positive) review every week. Rotate through your various review sites to ensure fresh content.

How to Handle Bad Reviews on Facebook

How to Handle Bad Reviews on Facebook

Peer-to-Peer Trust

Trust for most people is built and maintained via online interactions with their peers. For some people, this may seem inaccurate, but with the rise of “fake news,” big media is losing the trust of its users. 

To compensate for this loss of trust in big media, users are turning to each other. Peer to peer influence is highly trusted. That’s where reviews come in. Users leave first-hand reviews online rating your business with 1-5 stars to show their friends and followers which businesses are trustworthy.

As trust in big media goes down, peer to peer influence is going up. Way up! #smm Click To Tweet

Reviews Impact Peer Trust

If you have a business page on Facebook, you know all about reviews. These reviews may seem trivial to some, but they can play a large part in the reputation of your business online and offline.

If someone rates your business poorly, even without a genuine reason, their peers will see and trust that review. If your brother, best friend, sister-in-law, or even cousin left a poor review of a restaurant saying the waiter was rude, would you go to that restaurant or keep your distance?

Our Love Affair with Yext

Goober Yext

In honor of our 1-Year Anniversary with Yext, here’s a post about how much we love them. As of February 1st, our company has had a service agreement with Yext for a full year. It has changed the way we run our business and the way we pitch new services to clients. Most importantly, it’s been an incredible asset to our clients.

This isn’t Paid Advertising I promise.

Ok, I got a little carried away there, but Yext truly has been an amazing service addition to Techno Goober. They offer a variety of services that fit right in with our robust web management offerings. Our clients (and our own web presence) have benefited greatly from our relationship with Yext.

If you aren't using @Yext, then your business could be suffering. The kicker? You might not even know. #goobertips Click To Tweet
