What is online reputation management?
It is a practice of monitoring a reputation of an individual or a company on the internet. Although associated to ethical grey areas of a business or an individual, it also speaks about positive issues like how to respond to clients’ complaints and use online feedback to increase business efficiency. This concept holds true for all industries including dental health care.
Building a good online reputation for your service is a Herculean task. As a public service provider, you will have to face dissatisfied patients, an insurance company issue or pricing issues which may prove to be a dampener to your business.
With the exponential growth in internet and Social media, these issues can be voiced and made public, thus making your online reputation take a nose dive. Many of the dental practitioners are ignorant about the negative effects of an online presence. Here are a few steps to take before things take an ugly turn:
