3 Tips to Improve Business Reputation with Outsourced Marketing Services
The importance of brand reputation.
A strong corporate reputation usually boils down to one thing: trust.
When your prospects trust you can deliver on the service level-agreements they need, you gain a customer.
When your customers trust the quality of your service delivery, you gain retention.
When your employees trust your company is the employer of choice, you maintain a strong workforce.
To build trust, you must make sure your business is credible and your business authority is strong. In this blog, we’re offering tips to improve your online presence with outsourced marketing services (and a WorkWave marketing solution that can do it for you).
Tip: use your website to build authority.
To become more visible online, you must first have a dedicated domain all to yourself where you can showcase the services you provide, the locations and industries you serve, and your contact information (at the very least). If you already operate a website, is it optimized for success? Think about these elements for a strong website that converts prospects into customer.
Elements to a successful website for commercial cleaning and security companies:
- Strong homepage messaging. Think of this as your hub of information. Even if a prospective customer enters your website from another page, there’s a strong possibility they will end up on your homepage throughout their web session. Make sure your messaging is concise, and you’re delivering high-value content (like customer reviews and testimonials) off the bat.
- This may sound simple, but it is hard to achieve a visually professional website. Your website visitors are looking at your website before they’re reading anything – your website’s look should make an impact. Factor in your logos, your brand colors and images that resonate with your target audience.
- Web Structure: Be clear explaining the services you provide. Prospects decide quickly whether a website is worth investigating, so put your offerings front and center.
Tip: understand there are things happening on the backend of your website.
There is a lot at work going on behind the scenes of your website that continuously impact your business’ reputation. The quality of content you have on your website, other websites linking to your content, your search engine optimization (SEO) and even your webpage’s speed all play a part in your website rankings. The higher the ranking, of course, the more likely your website is to appear at the top of a potential client’s search result page.
Unfortunately, the internet’s evolution isn’t slowing down anytime soon. With a demanding customer portfolio needing your time and attention, we recommend implementing a marketing agency service to help optimize your website for current best practices.
Tip: remember your audiences.
It’s easy to think of your website as a customer acquisition tool. Keep in mind it’s just as powerful of a tool in recruitment. Awareness is a key step in the recruitment funnel, and where you have the most opportunity to position yourself as an employer of choice. A prospective employee should be able to gain much different information from your website than a potential client could. Think about how you’re presenting your careers page, what benefits and workplace culture values you can share, and the transparency you’re including in job listings. Knowing the journey you’re trying to achieve for each individual website visitor will help you achieve your different business goals, faster.
