We all would love to trade in that used car for a brand new one or buy a new faster laptop to replace the slow one you currently own. The reality of it is you might be stuck with your piece of junk for quite some time, so it is important that you get the most out of it.

If you took a survey and asked how many people would like to trade in something they had now for a better version of the same thing you would get a resounding amount of people agreeing with you. But we can't always get what we want and for the time being we have to make do with what we have for the moment. Instead of running to trade in or buy a newer version of it we should make sure that we are getting the most out of what we have. How many times have you been close to throwing batteries away only to find out that when you put them in another device it gave you an extra month of power until they finally ran out of juice. If we make sure that we are using all of our resources to the fullest of their capabilities it will create stability and limit the amount of dissatisfaction that we often come across when we feel something is not getting the job done. A little bit of patience would help too but that’s a story for another time. As a business owner it is important that you give any type of new business plan you have just implemented time to really take effect. It won't happen overnight but if its properly utilized it will give returns tenfold. But in the meantime you should continue to operate your business, just because you are implementing something new does not mean you should skimp on service continue to use what you have until it is the appropriate time to move onto the next phase of your business. You might have customers that were used to you doing business a certain way before and it will take them time to adjust so you should be properly communicating with them on how the new procedures will take place. While doing that, you can still do business with them the way you have been doing in the past. Reward them for their loyalty and for them continuing to do business with you though it's a temporary inconvenience.    

It may not be the best or fastest but for the time being it is what you must use to ensure that you can progress to the next stage of your business. In the meantime continue to use what you are using making sure you get the most out of it so there is nothing left but a memory.

In today’s society nothing is more precious than your time. It’s the one thing that cannot be undervalued or underestimated. If your time is the most important thing to you then Reputation Management can help both you the customer and the business owner.

Reputation Management and time go hand in hand for a potential customers a business with a great reputation can save them time by taking the away the hours of research that comes with looking for a suitable company to bring your business to. As a business owner a positive reputation helps weed out the bad companies from the good companies cutting down the time it takes to match you up with your desired customer. But let’s be clear here a positive reputation means more to the business then it does to the customer, after all your services are being sought out and if they are not up to par you won't have to worry about being in demand. It is imperative that a business maintain a positive reputation no matter how big or small their company is. Small companies that want to expand should constantly monitoring their online profile making sure it is up to the standards of not only their company but customers as well. It only takes one negative comment to get the ball rolling and have you scrambling to save your company. Bigger companies want to make sure that you continue to be the go to company that you have been for the last decade or so.

A business should not just want to have a positive online profile for the sake of attracting customers though that is a very nice incentive, but you want your hard work and dedication to be recognized and stand out amongst your peers. There are a lot of companies and they all may preach the same thing about top service and the best products. What is going to separate the good from the great is your hard work and you going above and beyond for your customers. When you do that customers will remember that and will spread the word about your company. I have mentioned before word of mouth spreads fast and you want your company to be on the good side of that track. Time is precious and as a business owner you should not waste yours on trying to correct fundamental issues. that time should be spent on improving your business. Your customers don't want to waste time on waiting for you to get your act together. Keep everyone happy by proper communication and excellent customer service and time will be well spent.

You built your company from the ground up and have ensured that it is protected with the best security that money can buy. Its impenetrable neither hacker or rival dare cross your defense. But what about you reputation how protected is that.

The bigger the company the harder the fall, the bigger the company the more shots it will take from rivals and competitors that want to see it fall and hackers who want to prove that no company can be too protected. Part of what makes your business successful is the ability to fight off attacks from various sources that want to do harm and want to destroy you. By defending your company you are building stability and creating a blueprint for future business owners who want to model their business after yours. But what you didn't show them is how to defend the very thing that means just as much as the bottom line on your balance sheet, your reputation. No matter how big and successful your business is you must make sure that your company is mentioned in the most uplifting and positive way possible. While one may think that if they are making profit and out doing quarterly predictions that they should care less about what someone is saying about them and in some instances this is true. If it is your rival you really shouldn't pay too much attention to what they are saying anyway, one reason is they can only say but so much before it starts to creep up on slander territory which is going to open up a whole other can of worms. But if your customer is talking about your business and it's not anything nice then you have a problem that needs to be solved quickly. Often times people tend to go to others for information about a company that they plan on doing business with, as a owner you want that customer to only say the most positive things about you that is going to have her friend running to do business with you. 

If she says some bad things about you you can cross two customers off your list and count on crossing more off. Word of mouth can be very damaging if it is negative, same can be said with online searches and Social Media. If your profile is not right on the internet you are seriously going to fall hard. Your reputation online is your introduction to your global customers and if they see that your domestic customers are not happy then how can you possibly make customers even farther away happy.
