How to Improve Public Perception of Your Business

Getting information to the public is getting them to know more about your business. The public’s perception of your company can make or break profit margins. If your company is seen as a respectable firm that creates a quality product or service, it can easily win lifetime customers. However, if a negative impression is associated with that same company, customers may turn away.

Making the public aware, through branding, allows you to build your brand and gain the credibility that you need to attract more customers. Brand image is important for any business. When consumers buy a product or service, they aren’t just buying a product or service; they’re buying what your brand stands for. That’s why it’s so important to design your brand image to convey exactly what you want it to say.

  1. Organizations must be transparent with their clients, partners and customers.

It is really the answer to most questions. Be honest and be transparent. It’s very important for companies to communicate their efforts along this journey. Brand perception is what customers believe a product or service represents, not what your company owning the brand says it does. Brand perception comes from customer use, experience, functionality, reputation and word of mouth recommendation – on social media channels as well as face to face.

  1. It is important to understand the public conversation.

Releasing a statement for the sake of releasing a statement will not help your company and, in many cases, it will actually hurt your brand. Most professionals must think more along the lines of how businesses can add real value to the conversation:

  • Understand what conversations and actions are taking place. What pain points does your business and industry face?
  • Check in with your competition.How are your competitors framing the issue and where can you complement it to help drive the conversation further? Are there important points they may have failed to address that your brand can? At the end of the day, it’s about making real change, and you should look to competitors as partners in these conversations.
  • Monitor social media. What are people expressing? Address any issues that may arise from your followers. Now is the time to listen and learn.
  1. Businesses should earn media opportunities that keep their brand accountable.

You need to be getting leaders at your company in front of the media to address the issues your brand is taking on and in a clear way that most individuals can ensure their business is held accountable
