Your online reputation plays a big role in building your business. Learn four ways to manage it.
1. Take the lead. Instead of waiting for others to talk about you, give them something to talk about. Share your success on your website and blog. Post your Virtual ID Card on your website so other can see your success. Create videos and blogs that are helpful and share your message before someone shares it for you.
2. Respond quickly and thoughtfully. When downline members or prospects have questions, you’re on the clock. You need to answer and assist people quickly and thoughtfully. Each moment you wait to help someone who needs it, your reputation takes a hit.
3. Manage bad feedback. Unpleasant feedback is almost inevitable, but it can quickly be resolved with some effort on your part. If a downline member is unhappy, or a prospect sours, take the time to address their issues. Respect their opinions and work to find a solution. If you just write them off, your reparation could suffer as a result.
4. Play to your strengths. You don’t have to be the best at everything to have a good online presence and reputation. If video is your comfort zone, put your effort into making great YouTube videos and save blogging for someone else. Work on creating content your love and working with services you understand. It’s better to have one quality output than multiple not so great offerings.
Each day you work with GDI you are building your legacy. With any business, especially online businesses, you are constantly building your reputation and your legacy. What you do leaves an impression on visitors to your site, past and present downline members and anyone interested in working with you. It’s important to think about decisions not just in how they will affect you right now, but also in the future and how it will reflect on your and your business.
We’re all busy, making it all too easy to ignore an email, skip a phone appointment or just forget to chat with our team. While this may not seem like a big deal today, this will affect how people see you and the legacy your business leaves. One missed phone call can be the reason someone leaves GDI. An ignored email can be a missed opportunity to build your team. As these things happen people remember them and share them. Don’t let you long term goals be hindered by ignoring work now.
GDI’s bonuses give you a chance to earn money while learning more about the business, helping others learn more, and building your team. When you chose to work towards these bonuses, it shows your commitment to GDI and others as well as building your income. Deciding not to work towards bonuses can show a lack of commitment to GDI, your downline and potential team members. Think of the legacy you leave as you work to build your business. How will people talk about you? How will they remember your work ethic and your business?
