Responding to Negative Reviews

Businesses need to create a professional and positive image for their customers. The customers need to view the company as a reputable place to get quality products or services in a timely fashion. There are management firms like founded specifically to help other companies and people to control their online reputations. In a world that revolves around online interactions, these reputation management firms bring businesses and customers together to create a needed image of positive professionalism.

Businesses are not the only ones that use these reputation management firms. There are many organizations, and people that are consistently in the public eye, that rely on these firms to manage their reputations in the online world. Politicians, for example, will have teams of people in a firm readily available to help put out fires and keep their client’s image intact. Tools are made available to clients that allow them to track mentions of their name or brand online, but an individual could do these searches themselves if the company is on a tight budget.

Negative reputation sources, such as a scathing review by a disgruntled customer or bad ‘insider’ information from an employee that had been fired, need to be handled immaterially. The company should respond to the customer’s review and assure them that this experience was a mishap. The company is willing and capable of making up for those negative experiences. This will show both the customer, and other potential customers, that the company cares. They want the best experience for the customer when dealing with their product or service.

Of course, reactive management is not the only way to keep an image positive in the online world. The organization will need to be proactive with social media to create an online brand that fits well with their product while being interactive with their customer base. This can be done by posting updates about new products, improvements being made, and uplifting stories about a customer’s experience with the product. Customers that come across their social media will be more inclined to enjoy their time shopping if they know the company values them as people.


Securus Develops Groundbreaking Software

The nation’s leading provider of safety solutions for corrections, investigation, public safety, monitoring, and a provider of justice technology solutions in both the civil and criminal arenas has just received an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. This prestigious company is none other than Securus Technologies. Securus Technologies’ Senior VP of Operations released a statement in which he said he was proud of his company’s achievement. Securus has worked hand in hand with the Better Business Bureau to make sure it meets all standards for trust and honesty in its marketing, advertisements, and customer service.

In addition to its recent honors from the BBB Securus has also developed a groundbreaking software that will be of great use to law enforcement officials nationwide. Securus Technologies has developed a program known as Investigator Pro 4.0. It is a remarkable piece of software because it allows searching of phone calls made through the prison inmate system with voice recognition and matching. A criminal investigator who approaches a facility where Securus operates can now select a single voice sample from a phone call and have it matched to all other phone calls in which that voice was heard. Investigators can identify the party who made the phone call to the prisoner in addition to all prisoners in the facility themselves.

This program empowers investigators to stop organized crime like never before. Many criminal organizations have members both on the inside and outside of prison and they coordinate activities by speaking to each other through the phone in code. They may even give parts of the code to one inmate and the rest of the code to another. Now all of these phone calls can be searched more easily and put together so that investigators have more valuable evidence at their disposal for solving and preventing crimes. This is all thanks to the trustworthy company Securus Technologies.

Tools and Responsibility With Online Reputation Management

If there is anything that could be said about running a business and online reputation management, it is that each one of these activities are full time jobs in and of themselves. Therefore, it is important for one to be able to find a balance or someone that can provide some of the leg work needed. For one thing, it is important to figure out what is more important. Perhaps the best thing to do is work on online reputation management before working on the business. However, the better thing to do is get help in many other aspects of the business as it depends on the type of company that is being run.
One thing that could be done is to get reputation management tools. These are the tools that will check if there has been any negative mentions of the company. It is then up to the company owner to decide how he is going to respond to the negative mention. For one thing, it is not good for him to respond to everyone. The better thing to do would be for him to just look for the ones that go into detail about what the company may have done wrong. Then he could respond accordingly.

One of the best aspects of the business is not that it does not get any bad reviews or complaints. It is how the company handles the complaints. For instance, if the company is able to resolve the complaint in a manner that is very satisfactory for the customer, then he will gain the trust of the customer as well as other customers. Another thing that will make other customers trust him is if he takes responsibility for any mistakes he has made. A business owner that carries the belief that he can’t make any mistakes is not trusted by customers.


Doe Deere Makes No Apologies

Doe Deere
Recently Galore Magazine did an article about Doe Deere. Doe Deere is a big name individual when it comes to cosmetics, and Galore Mag wanted to get some information about her background and also about how she got into makeup. Doe Deere remembers being a young child that loved fashion and makeup. When she was living in Russia with her mother and father, she loved to put on her mother’s clothing and jewelry. She would pretend like she was an adult, and she would feel beautiful. Later Doe Deere and her family moved to New York, and she can remember the first time that she had an experience with make up. Doe Deere was only nine years old, and she was at a slumber party with some of her girlfriends. They were trying to get into the mood of the night, so she decided to break out her makeup and she painted her entire face to look scary.

Doe Deere is known as an expert when it comes to make up, but that had not always been the case. Doe Deere had to learn how to wear makeup. For quite some time she was really bad, but after a while she discovered theatrical makeup, and that totally changed her world. Deere realized that make up could totally change the way that a person felt and the way that they looked. Deere loved the fact that theatrical makeup was pigmented and bright, but at the same time she wanted to find a way to get the same richness of theatrical makeup on a cosmetic level. Deere decided to make her own cosmetic line, because make up was something that she really loved.

Deere decided to name her brand Lime Crime, because she copied the name that she had for her eBay store. She started her eBay store in 2004, and she chose the name of Lime Crime because her favorite color is green, and she used the word ‘crime’ because it rhymes with lime. Deere registered that name, and she really liked it, but if she would’ve known that her brand was going to be so popular, she probably would’ve chosen something more subtle and versatile. Deere calls her fans unicorns, because they are people who are born different. They are proud of their differences, and that is why they are unique. Deere believes that it takes a special kind of person to be proud of the differences that we have, and that is the reason why her fans are called unicorns.

Fabletics Dominating Women’s Active Wear And Planning Up To 100 New Stores

You’ve seen the great TV spots with Kate Hudson wearing active wear from the Fabletics line she co-founded. The brand has become a leader in comfortable work-out gear, both in e-commerce and now in brick and mortar stores.

Fabletics’ business co-founders Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler have recently announced Fabletics clothing you can touch and try on. The branding geniuses are covering all the fashionable bases, planning on adding up to 100 retail stores across the country within the next five years.

Fabletics exploded on to the active wear scene just three years ago and has swiftly soared to the top. The brand is proud of its one million VIP members located around the globe. Having a online subscription start-up is no easy feat. Many of them begin beautifully and then quickly burn out, but Fabletics has maintained its prime spot at the top.

Many would credit Kate Hudson for the brand’s growing popularity. She really wears the clothing that has her signature casual chic style all over the line on. When she’s not on the Hollywood red carpet, she’s a normal mom with two young boys living an active lifestyle. The brand’s philosophy is simple: “Live your passion.” Kate Hudson wants to encourage Fabletics members to keep moving, stay healthy and wear clothing that is affordable, looks great and offers fit and function.

Fabletics’ entire line is designed and produced in-house at the company’s large L.A. headquarters.

When a shopper joins subscription membership, they will save up to 50% off regular pricing and earn points towards free loyalty items. The first outfit for new VIP members costs just $25 with free shipping. Plus, VIP members can shop Kate Hudson’s closet each month and buy the actress’ favorites.

As a VIP member, the shopper always has the power to shop or not shop every month. It’s easy to opt out, too. A VIP logs into her account to click on the “Skip the Month” button by the 5th of each month, and then she won’t be charged.

If a VIP fails to take action by that window of time, then her credit card will be charged $49.95 on the 6th until she cancels.

Evolution of Smooth For The Win

Lip Balm is an essential cosmetic for both men and woman throughout the year. Whether we are fighting dry lips from the frigid freezing temperatures or trying to protect our lips from UV rays during long hours in the sun, lip balm is a must. There are many popular brands of lip balm but only a select few leave your lips feeling smooth and refreshed. Burts Bees lip balm creates a tingling sensation that leaves lips feeling like they’ve just had a drink of water. Another popular brand that carries many popular reviews is Evolution of Smooth – also known as the “egg-shaped” lip balms.

EOS carries many types of lip balm that cater to a variety of needs. Their Smooth Sphere Lip Balm comes in 8 different flavors, all with the same healing and smoothing effects. Evolution of Smooth carries balms that have SPF, balms that are organic, and some shimmer smooth balms for added color. A few of their flavors include passion fruit, medicated tangerine, strawberry sorbet, and blueberry acai. Check out their products on Ulta.

It is very important to apply lip balm to the lips regularly to avoid dry lips. Because our lips do not contain oil glands they tend to become dry very fast. Also, when you think you’re adding moisture to your lips by licking them – this is not sure. You are actually causing your lips to become drier because the saliva is drying the skin out. EOS has created a lip balm that leaves the lips feeling hydrated for an all day wear. So whether you’re hanging around the house for the day or planning on a long day out in the sun, remember the importance of moisturizing your lips!

Andy Wirth’s Latest Plans For Squaw Valley And North Lake Tahoe

Andrew Wirth, known to friends as Andy, is the President and CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, a position he has held since August 2, 2010. As President and CEO, Wirth is responsible for the smooth operation of both the Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows ski resorts located in Olympic Valley, California. To ensure his employees make the resort’s guests stay a memorable one, Wirth went on UNDERCOVER BOSS, a show on the CBS Television Network, where he worked with a terrain park crew and taught a children’s snowboarding class.

More than half-a-million people visit Squaw Valley each year to prove their worth on some of the steepest and most challenging terrain in the nation. Five peaks and an advanced lift system draw crowds, as do Wirth’s changes after he took over as CEO. He focused on providing exceptional customer service, even bringing in a ski-in/ski-out Starbucks. Skiers approved Squaw Valley underwent a complete overhaul under Wirth’s leadership, which sparked a plan for an even larger change.

Although Squaw Valley is already one of the nation’s largest ski resorts,Andy Wirth is spearheading a 25-year expansion project, which is awaiting final approval from the county commission. While Squaw Valley offers highly regarded ski terrain, Andy Wirth wants to upgrade guest facilities to include more motel rooms and an indoor water and adventure park. Improvements would make Squaw Valley even more of a draw, which falls right into Wirth’s goal of making the region a top tourist destination in the competitive mountain destination marketplace.

North Lake Tahoe has a tourism-dependent economy, and Andy Wirth’s sweeping Squaw Valley expansion plans will create approximately 1,400 jobs and bring millions per year in tax revenue for Placer County.

The Reno-Tahoe Regional Air Service Corporation (RASC) recently announced that Andy Wirth will take over as Chairman and President of the RASC. Wirth’s main responsibility is to attract new flights to the Reno-Tahoe International Airport by promoting the region as a premiere, year-round tourist destination. Learn more about Andy Wirth:

Nothing will deter Andy Wirth from his goal of promoting Lake Tahoe, not even Mother Nature. The drought in California will not change anything at Squaw Valley; the resort invested in state-of-the-art snow manufacturing technology. Wirth also positioned the resort a summer destination, where events and activities attract guests year-round.
