Have you ever received negative reviews? Having negative reviews for your business seem to spread faster than the plague during this digital age. You need to monitor your reputation with free tools such as “Google Alerts”, “Naymz” or “MonitorThis” to avoid the Black Death and end up bleeding red. Keep your business healthy by posting useful content before you see signs of infection. Help care for other small businesses by writing online reviews for your favorites. Keeping the golden rule in mind to do to others as you would want them to do to you is wise and good business sense for local small businesses.
