Crises Communications is not a new practice, but it is an entirely new practice when trying to be performed online. Sterling Cross has assembled several tools though for low to no cost for a business to watch what is being said about them (good or bad) online. You need to start watching what is being said starting now, and on a regular basis. Major brands ignored what was being said about them online - Domino’s and Motrin failed to respond quickly 48 hours is an eternity online, and the damage is done.
"89% of US online buyers read customer reviews before they purchase: 43% most of the time, 22% all of the time. A bad reputation hits your bottom line."
"The number who trust consumer reviews by people they never met on a retailer's site is 60%, only slightly lower than "a review by a known expert"."
