Pay Attention To The Reputation

There are a lot of brands out there but it can be difficult to distinguish between the basic vs. brilliant brands. There are two things that help a company stand out -- the product and the reputation.

A lot of companies focus on their product, as they should but many don't pay enough attention to their reputation. The reputation of every company is essentially their bumper sticker for which they're known and ideally, the reputation is positive versus notorious.

Growing Market Share & Gaining Customers

  • 58% of people buy or advocate for brands based on their beliefs and values
  • 60% of people choose a place to work based on their beliefs and values
  • 64% of people invest based on their beliefs and values

That's more than half of folks who expect more from brands. That's a big shift from what we've seen in the past and even more incentive for brands to ensure that their reputation is beyond reproach.

When you have a solid product and a great reputation it attracts customers, it attracts talent, it engenders trust, and most importantly, both customers and employees will go to bat for the company. It's much easier to grow market share when you're well-liked.

Talent Attraction or Repulsion

When your brand has a good reputation, people naturally want to join. After all, they've heard good things - the mission, the people, interesting work, and the culture. They've read positive employee reviews, the word of mouth is strong and people stay at the company a long time. Those are all very attractive to talent and screams that it might be a place I want to be part of.

Bad Reputation

when a company has a bad reputation, it can repel talent. People won't apply and the great product you're developing is more difficult to launch due to the negative perception of the company because you don't have the people needed to build it. Furthermore, if the reputation is really bad, employees will leave faster than you can hire them. That's a real cost on a number of levels -- the resources it costs to advertise roles, the people hours to recruit, interview, hire, and onboard.

Walking The Talk

One of the most key aspects of brand reputation is consistently saying and more importantly, doing the right things. A lot of companies say one thing but do another.

When companies operate in a way that is contrary to their stated values, they greatly risk diminishing their brand reputation. It's incumbent on companies, particularly leaders to model and help safeguard against situations that can hurt the brand.

Reputation is easily lost and can have an epic domino effect, because once you lose the trust of your employees, your customers and your stockholders, it can be a long way back to redemption, if at all. So do things differently, continually build a great reputation and don't lose your way.
