In this era of social media and online communications, negative comments can spread much faster and can reach a much wider audience than was ever possible by word of mouth. Satisfied customers will share their positive experience with 3-5 people, but an unsatisfied customer will potentially complain about a negative experience to 10-20 others. Social media platforms and physician graded websites multiply these numbers exponentially.
The good news is that there are ways to control the discussion, respond to and manage online reviews and comments – improving your reputation online. Following the links below, you will find some excellent resources gathered from the Internet to help with improving and managing your online reputation.*
