“The secret of crisis management is not good vs. bad, it’s preventing the bad from getting worse”
This quote from Andy Gilman couldn’t be truer when we speak of business reputation. In a time when 92% people trust businesses with a great star rating on their business online, managing your online reputation is not an option anymore.
If you ignore your customers, they lose faith in you and that is when they will never ask you for anything.
