Five Essential Reputation Management Tools

An instant is all it takes to threaten your business's sterling reputation online. You might have had an off day or the misfortune of dealing with an ornery customer, but it's almost inevitable that you'll come face to face with a negative online review at some point in your career.

But, as Adrienne Weissman, CMO at G2 Crowd, recently pointed out, negative reviews aren't all bad. Some 70% of Americans read reviews before making a purchase, and those who seek out negative reviews tend to be more engaged and are 67% more likely to make a purchase. Plus, 68% of people trust a company more when their reviews are a mix of good and bad.

Of course, the key to making the best of a bad review lies largely in your response. That means you need to be able to find reviews (both good and bad) as they pop up. That's definitely more social media monitoring than one person can handle...

And that's where reputation management tools come in.

The following five reputation management tools are some of the best on the market for tracking mentions, discovering influencers, and managing online reviews as they happen.

1. Awario

When you can't have eyes and ears everywhere at once, Awario's the next best thing.

    Interesting brands, and an increasingly important solution. I would also include Signpost (full disclosure, I'm a current employee). The AI-driven platform allows businesses to essentially "intercept" negative reviews before they're posted, while also driving more 5-star reviews.
