Not a month goes by without a new scandal flooding the web, forums, blogs and social networks: horse meat found in lasagne, an airline company abusing its staff and ignoring its customers, unreliable public transport, mobile companies offering poor service despite charging exorbitant prices, a mouse head found in a jar of jam, etc…
What is said on the web about your brand? What is said about your services? How are your public statements actually received? Are online discussions about your company good or bad? Who are the influencers, opinion leaders and brand ambassadors?
Nowadays it is essential to be constantly alert by listening to web conversations, and developing a communication strategy and a crisis communication plan. At all costs, you must avoid your brand becoming the centre of a controversy. It takes a lifetime to build a brand’s reputation, but only a few seconds to destroy it on the web. Treat crises by developing a strategy which leaves nothing to chance, and especially avoids any of the common triggers.
